That'll Be the Day ()
Authors: Jerry Allison, Buddy Holly, Norman Petty; Lead vocal: John Lennon

Well that'll be the day
When you say goodbye
Yeah that'll be the day
When you make me cry
You say you're gonna leave
You know it's a lie
'Cause that'll be the day
When I die.

Well you gave me all your loving
And all your turtle doving
All your hugs and kisses
And your money too
You say you love me baby
Still you tell me maybe
That somebody, well I'll be through

Well that'll be the day
When you make me cry
That'll be the day
When you say goodbye
You say you're gonna leave
You know it's a lie
'Cause that'll be the day
When I die

Yeah that'll be the day
When you say goodbye
Yeah that'll be the day
When you make me cry
You say you're gonna leave
You know it's a lie
'Cause that'll be the day
When I die

Well when Cupid shot his dart
He shot it at your heart
So if we'll ever part
And I'll leave you
You say and hold me
And you tell me boldly
That some day, well I'll be through

Well that'll be the day
When you say goodbye
Yeah that'll be the day
When you make me cry
You say you're gonna leave
You know it's a lie
'Cause that'll be the day
When I die

Yeah that'll be the day
Oh, oh that'll be the day
Oh, oh that'll be the day
Oh, oh that'll be the day
