Lyrics:
Hey!
Shut up.
Don’t lie to me.
You think I’m blind but I got eyes to see
Hey!
Mister, how do you do.
Oh pardon me I thought I knew you.
Would you stand back baby ’cause I want to get a better look.
The big man who couldn’t handle the little bit of love you took.

Hey, hey, have a heart, hey, have a heart.
If you don’t love me, why don’t you let me go?
Have a heart, please, oh don’t you have a heart?
Little by little you fade while I fall apart.

Oh Oh Oh darling, I love you so.
I told you yes, and then you told me no.
Baby, how can you say
You should be free and I should pay and pay
And you talk and talk about you and what you need
But sooner or later your love is gonna make me bleed.

Hey, hey, have a heart, hey, have a heart.
If you don’t love me, why don’t you let me go?
Have a heart, please, oh don’t you have a heart?
Little by little you fade while I fall apart.
Oh, Oh.

Talk on, talk on, but love is what you need.
And sooner or later that love is gonna make you bleed.

Hey, hey, have a heart, hey, have a heart.
If you don’t love me, why don’t you let me go?
Have a heart, please, oh don’t you have a heart?
Little by little you fade while I fall apart.
Don’t ya know it baby
Have a heart
(please)
Hey Hey Have a heart
(please)
Have a heart
