It opens with a light guitar strum and an almost No Doubt About It - The Shirelles - For Collectors Only matter-of-fact, stern spoken section which, though rarely noted, anticipates the kind of spoken passages that would be so frequently employed by the Shangri-Las a little later.
Then it's into the main verse, highlighted by a sad Pineapple Face - Seven Minutes Of Nausea / Patareni - Seven Minutes Of Nausea / Patareni catchy Brill Building pop-rock melody and an eerie, cheesy organ that would rarely pass quality control in later years, but has a difficult-to-recreate period magic of its own.
The melody gets brighter and more happy-go-lucky in the bridge, which contrasts as well to the almost scolding tone of the verse, in which the singer lectures about a heartbreaker in an "I told you so" vein.
A big hook of the bridge that no doubt helped sell the single and implant itself in listener's memories was the back-and-forth vocal tradeoffs between the heartbroken girl, singing in an especially naive and high voice about how she still loved the scoundrel, only to be chided by a backup chorus reminding her of what a heel 5 Evening In Transylvania - Bartók* - Zoltán Kocsis - Zoltán Kocsis Plays Bartók guy was.
The bridge's tension built with an upward key change and a definitive, almost chanted statement of how he was getting married tomorrow and it was time to move on. The fadeout was also effective, with the assertive lead voice telling the jilted woman to forget about her ex-lover, to be answered by the repeated plaintive, almost sighing rejoinders from the high-voiced singer maintaining she still loved him.
Probably the songwriters didn't have this in mind, but in this way the lyrics reflected the conscious and subconscious struggles in many people's minds male and female at the end of an affair -- one dominant part angry and determined to forget about it, the other clinging to an affection that hasn't quite run its course.
