' You Laughed and Laughed and Laughed
I told you I was in love,
But you laughed and
Laughed and laughed.
I gave you my love,
But you did not give me yours,
Instead, you kept mine, and
Gave yours to another.
You laughed at my song,
You laughed at my walk,
Then I danced my magic dance
to the rhythm of the talking
But you shut your eyes, and laughed
And laughed and laughed.
