BREAK THE NEWS GENTLY

oh baby, break the news gently
but don't break me
don't want to cry again in front of them

she asked me if I'd go with you (I said "cool")
he asked you if you'd go with me (you said "mmmm")
at that lunch break I almost swooned
but now it's come to this

oh baby, break the news gently
but don't break me
don't want to cry again in front of them
oh baby, break the news gently
don't ruin the night for me
I already know but I won't let it show

they were playing our favourite song (forever young)
and soda pop in my glass was warm (afri-cola)
round and round the school gym we walked
you didn't hold my hand

oh baby, break the news gently
but don't break me
don't want to cry again in front of them

baby, break the news gently
it lasted barely for half a day
and we didn't get to dance or even sway
but when I'll see you on these same hallways every day
please don't turn your face away in shame
now I know how Reddie Redford feels
in "Princess" by Bogart Co

oh baby, break the news gently
but don't break me
don't want to cry again in front of them
oh baby, break the news gently
don't ruin the night for me
I already know but I won't let it show
