One Less Bell to Answer Lyrics

Song Meaning
Verse 1
One less bell to answer
One less egg to fry
One less woman to pick up after
I should be happy
Verse 2
But all I do is cry
(Cry, cry, no more laughter)
I should be happy
(Oh, why did he go)
Verse 3
I only know that since he left
My life's so empty
Though I try to forget
It just can't be done
Verse 4
Each time the doorbell rings
I still run
I don't know how in the world
To stop thinking of her
Verse 5
I still love her
I spend each day the way I start out
Crying my heart out
(One less bell to answer)
Verse 6
I should be happy
(One less egg to fry)
One less woman to pick up after
No more laughter, no more love
Verse 7
Since she went away
(One less bell to answer)
(One less egg to fry)
One less man to pick up after
Verse 8
No more laughter, no more love
Since she went away
She went away
