Lyrics

Watcha gonna do when I'm gone?
Watcha gonna do when I'm gone?
If you know we're through watcha gonna do?

Watcha gonna say to your friends?
Watcha gonna say to your friends?
If you know we're through watcha gonna do?

Watcha gonna do? Will you find another guy?
Watcha gonna do? Will you sit alone and cry about the future?
That'll never suit yer.
That's not like you, Watcha gonna do?

Watcha gonna do when I'm gone?
Watcha gonna do when I'm gone?
If you know we're through watcha gonna do?

Guitar solo.

Watcha gonna do? Will you find another guy?
Watcha gonna do? Will you sit alone and cry about the future?
That'll never suit yer.
That's not like you, Watcha gonna do?

Watcha gonna do when I'm gone?
Watcha gonna do when I'm gone?
If you know we're through watcha gonna do?
Watcha gonna do?
