Sedaka, Neil - Breaking Up Is Hard To Do Lyrics

Do do do
Down dooby doo down down
Comma, comma, down dooby doo down down
Comma, comma, down dooby doo down down
Breaking up is hard to do

Don't take your love away from me
Don't you leave my heart in misery
If you go then I'll be blue
Cause breaking up is hard to do

Remember when you held me tight
And you kissed me all through the night
Think of all that we've been through
And breaking up is hard to do

They say that breaking up is hard to do
Now I know
I know that it's true
Don't say that this is the end
Instead of breaking up I wish that we were making up again

I beg of you don't say goodbye
Can't we give our love another try?
Come on, baby, let's start anew
Cause breaking up is hard to do

(They say that breaking up is hard to do)
Now I know
I know that it's true
(Don't say that this is the end)
Instead of breaking up I wish that we were making up again

I beg of you don't say goodbye
Can't we give our love another try?
Come on, baby, let's start anew
Cause breaking up is hard to do

(Down dooby doo down down)
Comma, comma, down dooby doo down down
Comma, comma, down dooby doo down down
Comma, comma, down dooby doo down down
Comma, comma, down dooby doo down

Sedaka, Neil Breaking Up Is Hard To Do Comments
  1. Loralie Ashrose

    I freaking love this song first heard it in my high school choir and then again when I was watching clips of the partridge family xxx

  2. R3D 5IVE

    He was 27/28 and looked 50

  3. Biggles Bear

    In this clip Neil Sedaka is 27. I was 24 - where have the years gone?

  4. Kelly Delaney

    I have watched multiple videos of Neil singing, and, I'm sorry, I can't help it, but all I can think of as he's standing there, swaying and singing, is Jim Nabors as Gomer Pyle ...

  5. Lyn K

    I think he should've been introduced into The Hall too and I tried submitting my vote but it wouldn't accept my email account as legitimate! It's the only one I have. Bummer!

  6. GrayFox667

    its 2020 . im 32 years old. Love this Kind of Music.

  7. Joni Long

    What great memories

  8. Nathaniel Tagari

    Yup, breaking up is hard to do.

    us and them

    See above!

  9. Guy Williams

    So maybe the reason old people are so homophobic is because they liked stuff like this and Little Melvin and think it makes them gay, since these guy are OBVIOUSLY gay!?!?!

    us and them

    Tell that to Sedaka's wife, IDIOT!
    Neil Sedaka was born on March 13, 1939 in Brooklyn, New York, USA. He has been married to Leba Strassberg since September 11, 1962. They have two children.

  10. Guy Williams

    Finally found this song by humming to it on midomi. Thanks cool website!

    Although I remember a version where a female one is singing. I have fond memories of it listening to my mp3 player. Might continue more extensive research.

  25. Gino

    "Neil Sedaka wears them." - Ross

  31. Doug Helms

    It's 10:17 am. Who's here with me?

  32. john bunyan

    This version is the right tempo to get the youngsters dancing, when we were all happy. After all , there were other girls and boys.........maybe the lyrics were wrong for the catchy tune. When I listened to the slow version, about fifty years later, as an old man, whose wife had died , I cried, because we used to dance to the fast version all those years ago. We didn’t break up.

  33. Bigaltovar9125 Alchavez

    The big sedack

  34. TheMartinick

    Neil knows a bunch about music. Great tunes and can sing, too! Absolutely love this song. Had all his tunes as a teen and sang my heart out to all of them!

  35. Tyler Kerr

  56. mudhens4ever

    Was Neil harmonizing with himself on this record? How was that done back in those days? Weren’t they recording on just two-track tape recorders?

  57. Daniel Stump

    I always thought Neil Sedaka was goofy.
    But now I see how wrong I was.
    He is da bomb!
    The little blonds dancing behind him -- typical 60's girls!

  58. freeguy77

    The late, great Rick Shaw, then 27 (1966), left the Earth at 78 on Sep. 22, 2017. We'll never forget you, Rick and the other DJs from WQAM (560 AM), Miami, 1963-1975; then at WAXY (105.9 FM; 1975-1990), and WMXJ (102.7 FM; 1990-2007)!
