My grandparents taught me this song when I was a child. They are deceased and I would love to sing it agan. I can only remember the following verse and frankly don't know if it is even accurate. Any help will be appreciated. Thank you!

"Annie doesn't live here anymore, it must have been your picture that she tore, she was oh so faithful what a pitiful sight, waitin' for the letters that you promised to write, a gentleman with a top hat called around the other day but Annie doesn't live here anymore."

From
Leeds, Michael. Swinging on a Star (The Johnny Burke Musical). Lyrics by Johnny Burke. Music by Johnny Burke et al.; Dramatists Play Service, Inc., 1996, p 26:


ANNIE DOESN'T LIVE HERE ANYMORE
Words, Joe Young & Johnny Burke. Music, Harold Spina.
New York: Irving Berlin, Inc., ©1933.

VERSE: Here's a tragedy that happened on a side street,
Where a fellow went to ring his sweetheart's bell.
He saw the shades were drawn,
And he knew his gal was gone
When he listened to the story that a neighbor had to tell:

CHORUS 1. Oh, Annie doesn't live here anymore.
You must be the one she waited for.
She said I would know you by the blue in your eye,
Checkered suit, a fancy vest, and polka-dot tie.
You answer to that description, so I guess that you're the guy.
Well, Annie doesn't live here anymore.

CHORUS 2. Annie doesn't live here anymore.
It's too bad you didn't call before.
She just bought a gown that ties with ribbons above,
Brand new shoes, a pretty hat, and latest style glove.
She really looked so alluring, and just waiting for your love,
But Annie doesn't live here anymore.

BRIDGE 1: It was spring. There was romance in the air,
And ev'rything seemed for loving hearts to share,
And there was she, just as lonely and as blue
As she could be. That's the reason—

CHORUS 3. Annie doesn't live here anymore.
Might have been your picture that she tore.
She was on so faithful. What a pitiful sight!
Waited for the letter that you promised to write.
A gentleman with a top hat called around the other night,
And Annie doesn't live here anymore.

REPEAT CHORUS 1.

BRIDGE 2: Annie was faithful. Annie was true.
Annie was loyal, but what could she do?
You never came by. You never said why.
You left her alone and you made Annie cry.

Now you're crying too. Boo-hoo!

REPEAT BRIDGE 1.

CHORUS 3: Annie doesn't live here anymore. (Oh, no she doesn't live here.)
Might have been your picture that she tore. (Into a million pieces.)
She was on so faithful. What a pitiful sight!
Waited for the letter that you promised to write.
A gentleman with a top hat
Called around the other night,
And Annie doesn't live here anymore. (Yes, sir! She packed her suitcase!)
Annie doesn't live here anymore.
