IF THE BOY ONLY KNEW

By John D. Loudermilk
1961 Acuff-Rose Publ. Inc.
Sung by Sue Thomspson on the b-side of her hit Have A Good Time

If the boy only knew what the girl must go through
When the girl falls in love with the boy
She can't let him know that she loves him so
So what can the poor girl do?

He can have his fun with any other one
There's plenty of girls he can date
But he's the only love 'neath the starry skies above
To the girl who must sit at home and wait

Oh, if she could only let him know that she was lonely
Then he might find time to be lonely too

If the boy only knew what the girl must go through
When the girl falls in love with the boy
