It’s My Parting

After It’s My Party by Lesley Gore

 

Nobody knows where my Johnny has gone

His loves left at the same time

Why is Meher holding my hand

I’m forgetting me and mine

 

But it’s my parting, and I’ll cry if I want to

Cry if I want to, cry if I want to

You will cry too when He does it to you

 

Taking my records, burning mem’ries all night

Leave me alone for a while

Johnny’s last dance with me

I can wail or I can smile

 

And it’s my parting, and I’ll cry if I want to

Cry if I want to, cry if I want to

You will cry too when He does it to you

 

—— LEAD BREAK ——

 

Johnny’s gone and He just walked through the door

Oh, to serve the King of kings

And with a glance from His eyes

Meher is making me sing

 

Oh, it’s my parting, and I’ll cry if I want to

Cry if I want to, cry if I want to

You will cry too when He comes into you

 

It’s my parting, and I’ll cry if I want to

Cry if I want to, cry if I want to

You will cry too when He comes into you
