Bub-bye
© 2012, John Gerard Macchietto

Chorus: I don't want you to bub-bye
Those painful words that hurt me so
And I don't want you to go from me
I don't want you to bub-bye.

Verse 1: Years ago I knew a girl
We were fun and full of life
Sharing deeply of our - joyful hearts
Planning soon she'd be my wife

Our wedding day soon came to pass
Living out our marriage dreams
Then a man came to beseech - her heart
Love ain't never what it seems.

Chorus: I don't want you to bub-bye
Those painful words that hurt me so
And I don't want you to go from me
I don't want you to bub-bye.

Verse 2: Daddy died in Vietnam
A father that I only knew
Through faded photographs and - stories told
From Mama's sentimental view.

Well Mama couldn't stand the pain
Her broken heart was always sad
Dying in my arms she wept - for me
Then she left me for my Dad.

Chorus: I don't want you to bub-bye
Those painful words that hurt me so
And I don't want you to go from me
I don't want you to bub-bye.

(Instrumental)

Verse 3: Now you come to me in tears
Saying that you have to go
That there's something in my - temperament
That you simply can't forego.

I only wish you'd think this through
Give me a chance to rectify
You know whatever's wrong I'll change - for you
I don't want you to bub-bye.
I don't want you to bub-bye.
I don't want you to bub-bye.
I don't want you to bub-bye.

Short Song Description:
Country Ballad about the break-up of a romantic relationship.
Long Song Description:
This is a ballad about a man's history of abandonment and the heartbreak that goes with it.
Story Behind the Song:
I had a person leave a voice message on my answering machine who used the term, "Bub-bye." I thought that would be unique and simple way to summarize the complicated concept of abandonment that everyone feels several times in his or her lives.
