"WHY IS THAT TEAR IN YOUR EYE"

You've got a car and a bar and a TV set,
You've got the latest in fashion and you travel by jet.
Yes, you've got every thing made to satisfy,
So why is that tear in your eye, my love,
Why is that tear in your eye?

You've got a beautiful house with a swimming pool,
You've got plenty of friends 'cause you're playin' it cool,
And you've got everything that money can buy,
So why is that tear in your eye, my love,
Why is that tear in your eye?

Chorus:
I think I know just how you feel inside
When nothing seems to satisfy.
I've felt the pain, I've known the fears,
God knows I cried so many tears.
Until the day, I finally prayed, then true Love,
True Love, wiped my tears away.

You're a computer whiz with a high education,
And your Daddy is rich with a good reputation,
And you've tried everything that there is to try,
So why is that tear in your eye, my love,
Why is that tear in your eye?

You've got a mountain villa away from the noise,
Where you can hide yourself and play with your toys.
But then you fall to your knees and cry, "Lord, why?
Why all these tears in my eyes?"

[Repeat chorus twice]

Then true Love, true Love wiped my tears away.
