Now it seems, This is how the story ends: He's goin' to turn me down and say, "Can't We Be Friends?" I thought for once it couldn't go wrong. Not for long! I can se the way this ends: cNever again! Through with Love, Throught with men! They play their game without shame, and who's to blame? I thought I'd found a man I could trust. What a bust! This is how the story ends: He's goin' to turn me down and say, "Can't We Be Friends?"
