Play Me a Hurtin' Tune
 
Play me a hurtin' tune
I wanna an old time hurtin' tune
Make me sigh, make me cry
Make me wanna lay down an' die!
 
Oh! Play me a hurtin' tune
A tear your heart out hurtin' tune
Of a true, sweetheart who 
lost her lover an' feels so blue
 
I love those "How could you be so cruel, 
treatin' me like a fool?" songs!
I love those "Now that I know we're thru, 
what am I gonna do?" songs!
 
Please! Play me a hurtin' tune
I wanna an old time hurtin' tune
Make me sad an' I'll be glad
'Cause I feel so good when I feel so bad!
 
< instrumental break > 
 
( We love to feel so sad, we love to feel so bad,
go on an' beat me, mistreat me, go ahead an' cheat me, 
I like it, I like it, we like it! )
 
< instrumental break > 
 
Ah! Make me sigh ( make me cry! )
Make me wanna lay down an' die!
 
< instrumental break > 
 
A tear your heart out hurtin' tune
Of a true, sweetheart who 
lost her lover an' feels so blue
 
I love those . . .  ( "How could you be so cruel, 
treat me like a fool?" songs! )
I love those . . . ( "Now that I know we're thru, 
what am I gonna do?" songs! )
 
Please! Play me a hurtin' tune
I wanna an old time hurtin' tune
Make me sad an' I'll be glad
'Cause I feel so good when I feel so bad!
 
< violin solo > 
 
Oh look it girls, he's playin' our song!
Play us a hurtin' tune
We wanna an old time hurtin' tune
Make us sad, we'll be glad
'Cause we feel so good when we feel so sad!
