RETREAT (CRIES MY HEART) Anita Boyer / Nancy Farnsworth / Tommy Furtado 1952 as recorded by Patti Page with Jack Rael & his Orchestra I once heard that, in the city, Guys were slick and awful witty, So I roamed into town, Lookin' for a real swell honey, Loaded down with foldin' money To show me all around, around. "Retreat! Retreat! Retreat!" cries my heart. "Retreat! Retreat! Retreat!" cries my heart. You're a high falutin' dandy, With your flowers and your candy To melt my heart away. Loved your hugs and loved your kisses, Even thought I'd be your missus, But may heart seemed to say "Don't play!". "Retreat! Retreat! Retreat!" cries my heart. "Retreat! Retreat! Retreat!" cries my heart. Last night I saw you dancin' with a stranger, My heart hollered "Look out, danger, Go away and let me be!". Just like a pattern hound dog chasin' rabbits, You made me a doggone habit, But rabbits get away, away! "Retreat! Retreat! Retreat!" cries my heart. "Retreat! Retreat! Retreat!" cries my heart. Even though my pulse increases, I ain't signin' any leases, You've made it plain to see! Love is somethin' we all pine for, But a license I won't sign for, You can't be true to me! "Retreat! Retreat! Retreat!" cries my heart. "Retreat! Retreat! Retreat!" cries my heart. (Transcribed by Peter Akers - May 2013)
