Lyric:
 

There've been so many girls that I've known
I've made so many cry and still I wonder why

Here comes a little girl
I see her walking down the street
She's all by herself
I try and knock her off her feet

But she'll never break, never break, never break, never break
This heart of stone
Oh no, no, this heart of stone

What's different about her? I don't really know
No matter how I try, I just can't make her cry

Don't keep on looking that same old way
If you try acting sad, you'll only make me glad

Better listen, little girl
You go on walking down the street
I ain't got no love
I ain't the kind to meet

Cause you'll never break, never break, never break, never break
This heart of stone
Oh no, no, you'll never break this heart of stone, darling

No, no, this heart of stone, you'll never break it, darling
You won't break this heart of stone - oh no, no, no
You better go, you better go home
Cause you... you'll never break this heart of stone
