YOU DIDN'T WANT ME WHEN YOU HAD ME (SO WHY DO YOU WANT ME NOW) (Music: George J. Bennett / Lyrics: Benée Russell & Bernie Grossman) Rudy Willing & Gus Hill's Minstrels - 1919 Henry Burr - 1919 The Mills Brothers - 1954 Why do you try to waken memory Why talk about the days that used to be You say you love me, but you know that's not true I can't forget the tears I shed over you I told you once that there would come a day You'd want the love that you threw away I'll tell you just the same as you told me There's lots of fish down in the sea You didn't want me when you had me So why do you want me now You fooled around till you found I was yours from the start Then like a child with a toy You just played with my heart You never meant the things you told me You couldn't be true somehow You have heard the story of the moth and the flame What a fool I'd be to play with fire again You didn't want me when you had me So why do you want me now Though there's a fire still down in my heart Why should you try to give that flame a start You keep it burning till you seem to forget And then I put it out with tears of regret Each smile and kiss you always gave to me You knew you'd leave as a memory Why should you ask me for a love that's true That never meant a thing to you You didn't want me when you had me So why do you want me now You fooled around till you found I was yours from the start Then like a child with a toy You just played with my heart You never meant the things you told me You couldn't be true somehow You have heard the story of the moth and the flame What a fool I'd be to play with fire again You didn't want me when you had me So why do you want me now (Transcribed by Mel Priddle - November 2013)
