A little bit of soap...

usually i dont post lyrics, but while gymming this evening i overhead a really lame version of an oldie that i've not heard in years.

A Little Bit of Soap
The Jarmels

Words and Music by Bert Berns (a/k/a Bert Russell)

Peaked at # 12 in 1961
This popular oldie was later covered as minor singles by Garnet Mimms in 1965, by The
Exciters in 1966, by Paul Davis in 1970, and by Nigel Olsson as a Top 40 hit in 1979.

A little bit of soap will wash away your lipstick on my face
But a little bit of soap will never never never ever erase
The pain in my heart and my eyes as I go through the lonely years
A little bit of soap will never wash away my tears

Mmm, a little bit of soap will wash away your powder from my chin
A little bit of soap will never never never ever begin
To take away the hurt that I feel as I go through the lonely years
A little bit of soap will never wash away my tears, mmm, mmm, mmm

Have you heard when love begins to die it leaves someone to cry night and
Day?
Like a bird, you left your robin's nest and-a just like all the rest you flew away

Mmm, a little bit of soap will take away your perfume eventually
But a little bit of soap will never wash away the memory
Of your name in the night that I call through the lonely years
A little bit of soap will never wash away my tears

I'll never lose the memory of your name in the night that I call through the lonely years
A little bit of soap will never wash away my tears
Mmm, a little bit of soap-a will never wash away my tears
FADE
Mmm, it's gonna never, never, never, uh-huh, wash away my tears
