Kelly
(Del Shannon)
Recorded by Tony & The Graduates
1965 - King KG1014 / Sentimental Me

 

Kelly and I meet secretly, we stay out of sight,
When we're in each others arms, we know it isn't right;

We are so in love, but he loves you too,
How can I tell my best friend that I'm in love with you?

He's told me of your sweet caress and of your lovely eyes,
Just how long can we go on telling him all these lies?

We are so in love, but he loves you too,
How can I tell my best friend that I'm in love with you?

Oh, Kelly, please, please tell me, we gotta find a way,
Tell me what can I say, oh, Kelly.

He's coming home tomorrow night, he's been gone so long
We could get away tonight, to run would be so wrong

We are so in love, but he loves you too,
How can I tell my best friend that I'm in love with you?

Oh, Kelly, please, please tell me, we gotta find a way,
Tell me what can I say, oh, Kelly.
Original recording by Del Shannon, 1963
