(what can i say) after i say i’m sorry? lyrics – nat king cole

i don’t know why, i made you cry
i’m sorry sweetheart and yet
though you shouldn’t be lenient with me
i hope you’ll forgive and forget

what can i say, dear, after i say i’m sorry?
what can i do to prove it to you, i’m sorry?
i didn’t mean to ever be mean to you
if i didn’t care i wouldn’t feel like i do
i was all wrong but right or wrong i don’t blame you
why should i take somebody like you and shame you
i know that i made you cry, and i’m so sorry dear
so what can i say, dear, after i say i’m sorry?

you made me glad, i made you sad
i made you lonesome and blue
and who ever knew
who’d ever think that i would be crying to you

what can i say, dear, after i say i’m sorry?
what can i do to prove it to you, i’m sorry?
i didn’t mean to ever be mean to you
if i didn’t care i wouldn’t feel like i do
i was all wrong but right or wrong i don’t blame you
why should i take somebody like you and shame you
i know that i made you cry, and i’m so sorry dear
so what can i say, dear, after i say i’m sorry?
