Lightly Latin - 1966

How Insensitive ( Insensatez ) 
How insensitive . . . I must have seemedPerry Como ~ Mr. Saturday Night!
when she told me that she loved me . . .
how unmoved an' cold . . . I must have seemed
when she told me so sincerely . . . 
 
Why . . . she must have asked
do I just turn an' stare in icy silence?
What was I to say   . . .
what can you say when a love affair is over? 
 
< instrumental break >
 
Now, she's gone away
and I'm alone with a memory of her last look . . .
vague an' drawn an' sad . . . I see it still
all her heartbreak in that last look . . . 
 
How . . . she must have asked
could I just turn an' stare in icy silence?
What was I to do  . . .
what can one do when a love affair is over? 
 
What can you do 
when a love affair is over? 
 
It's over . . .
