Lyrics[edit]

Two sweethearts in a country town, the neighbors say,
Lived happily the whole day long,
Until one day he told her he must go away;
She wondered then what could be wrong.

He said "You know it's true I love you best of all,
And yet it's best that we should part."
Just as he went away they heard his sweetheart say,
Though it 'most broke her heart:

Some of these days
You'll miss me, honey,
Some of these days
You'll feel so lonely;
You'll miss my hugging,
You'll miss my kissing,
You'll miss me, honey,
When you're away.

I feel so lonely
Just for you only,
For you know, honey,
You've had your way,
And when you leave me,
You know 't will grieve me;
I'll miss my little dad-dad-daddy,
Yes some of these days.

He went away, and from that day the world's been sad,
He realizes his mistake,
He listened to the gossips, and that's always bad,
For they don't care whose heart they break.

As time went on he longed to see his girl again,
And so by chance one day they met.
As they met face to face, there was a fond embrace,
Though these words haunt him yet:

Some of these days
You'll miss me, honey,
Some of these days
You'll feel so lonely;
You'll miss my hugging,
You'll miss my kissing,
You'll miss me, honey,
When you're away.

I feel so lonely
Just for you only,
For you know, honey,
You've had your way,
And when you leave me,
You know 't will grieve me;
I'll miss my little dad-dad-daddy,
Yes some of these days.
