Don't like goodbyes, tears or sighs I'm not too good at leavin' time I got no taste for grievin' time No, no, not me You've been my near one's, always my dear one's I never thought that I would find Another love, a diff'rent kind But it came to be Well, if you think I'm telling you lies Go try your luck and look into his eyes But remember, you must remember he's mine And my world overhead has a clear new shine Have I found the answer Yes, he's the only answer Guess I won't have to guide him, jus' walk beside him Can't you see it clearly that I love him dearly Don't want to leave you, sorry to grieve you It's trav'lin' time and I must move on Found the man to lean upon, and if I could arrange it Oh, would I care to change it Not me! ********** As recorded by BARBRA STREISAND: It's not easy, it's never been easy To let anyone see the sentimental side of me Hard as I try, I can't help but show It's my heart you're taking as you go Don't like goodbyes, tears or sighs I'm not too good at leavin' time I got no taste for grievin' time No, no, no, no, not me You've been my near one, ever my dear one I never thought that you would find Another love, a diff'rent kind But it came to be Now that your future is lookin' up Forget the past and go fill your lovin' cup But remember, remember leavin' is fine How the world overhead has a clear new shine I won't be grievin' now that you're leavin' It's trav'lin' time and you must move on Found someone that you can lean upon And if I could arrange it Ah, would I care to change it Not me Not me (Transcribed by Mel Priddle - March 2010)
