Lyrics

They say you're seeing someone
you're wearing his ring
they say you laughed
when you heard my name
they say he takes you dancing
he holds you so near
they say he'll buy you anything
tell me am I foolish
I don't believe these stories
I'll be coming home soon

Louise Louise
if it's true
tell it to me

I know you will not see me
but I know you have a daughter
I hear she has my eyes
they say she calls him father
and he's proud of her
even believes all of your lies
but for all your faithless beauty
I'd give all my tomorrows
if you're still thinking of me

Louise Louise
if it's true
tell it to me
