You ask me to give up the hand of the girl I love
You tell me I'm not the man she's worthy of
But who are you to tell her who to love?

Well, it's the second time I caught you talkin' to him
Do I have to tell you one more time, I think it's a sin

Every tear you shed
Tells me that your love is true

A heart beats softly, about to die
Wandering alone at night
Waiting for the storm to pass away

The whole world seems to know
Love is like a candlelight
Always giving off a glow

There's a little place near our town
We're gonna go there
Everybody comes from miles around
We're gonna go there

I've learned my lesson
It left a scar
And now I see
How you really are

We enjoy sitting side by side
In the booth in the ice cream parlor
Where we play the nickelodeon
And we dance when we hear our favorite melody

Suspended under the twilight canopy
We'll search the clouds for a star to guide us

When you were so in love with me
I played around like I was free
Thought I could have my cake and eat it too
But how I cried over losin' you

I needed someone to understand my ups and downs
And there you were

When you asked me to meet your Ma
I knew that, baby, we'd be goin' far

Come on, come on, come on, baby, now (come on baby)
Come on and work it on out (come on and work it on out)

'Cause your heart keeps beatin'
Like a big bass drum
And the beat's gettin' stronger
And it's so much fun

Her love for me is wider than the ocean
Goes deeper than the sea
Woh-oh-oh she makes me feel so good
When she rock and roll for me

I'd pass the greatest law in history
A lovely little law
I hope you'd never break
And it would make you fall in love with me

I kissed you once and then
I felt so wonderful
So very wonderful
Let's do it over again

Then you would have to change your ways
Or you'd get thirty days

He'll put stardust in your eyes
And build castles in your skies
And he's out with a new girl every night

You're the sweetest thing that I have ever seen
'Cause I really love you, baby
I'm gonna shake your tree

Am I crying because I'm happy
Or am I crying because I'm blue without you, yeah, yeah
You took my heart and threw it away
Now you're gone, and come what may

Girl, I can't let you do this
Let you walk away
Girl, how can I live through this
When you're all I wake up for each day?

Pitter-patter of the feet
Movin' and a-groovin' with that beat
Jumpin' and stompin' on the floor

I have my books
And my poetry to protect me

Ginnie only wants you
'Cause she thinks she has to have everyone
Minnie only wants you
'Cause she thinks that hurting me would be fun


Don't you know I'm in love with you?
Can't you see what I'm sayin' is true?
I've loved you right from the start
Oh, baby, we'll never part

She's sweet, she's fine
Makes me lose my mind
I love her so
I never let her go
