Well, if somehow
you could pack up your sorrows,
And give them all to me,
You would lose them,
I know how to use them,
Give them all to me.

No use cryin', talking to a stranger,
Namin' the sorrows you've seen;
Oh, 'cause there are too many bad times,
Too many sad times,
Nobody knows what you mean.

Well, if somehow
you could pack up your sorrows,
And give them all to me,
You would lose them,
I know how to use them,
Give them all to me.

No use ramblin', walkin' in the shadows,
Trailin' a wanderin' star,
No one beside you, no one to hide you,
No one to hide you,
An' nobody knows where you are.

Well, if somehow
you could pack up your sorrows,
And give them all to me,
You would lose them,
I know how to use them,
Give them all to me.

No use roamin', walking by the roadside,
Seekin' a satisfied mind,
Ah, 'cause there are too many highways,
Too many byways,
Nobody's walkin' behind.

Well, if somehow
you could pack up your sorrows,
And give them all to me,
You would lose them,
I know how to use them,
Give them all to me.

Well, if somehow
you could pack up your sorrows,
And give them all to me,
You would lose them,
I know how to use them,
Give them all to me.
You would lose them,
I know how to use them,
Give them all to me.
