My girl started in to laugh
When I sawed that see-saw right in half
Then I knew she was really mine
Ever since the time

We'll walk hand in hand
We'll walk hand in hand
We'll walk hand in hand, some day

I feel so good
And that's a real good sign

I can't stand this playin' around
Help me up, don't let me down
Kiss me baby, tell me so
If you love me, let me know

Well, it's a feeling you can't explain
People, it'll put you in a pain
It'll make you so you can't stand still
Baby, do you get this feeling?

Why lead me through a life of misery
When you don't care a bag of beans for me?

At the door, there's a man who will greet you
Then you go downstairs to some tables and chairs
Soon, I'm sure, you'll be tapping your feet
Because the beat is the greatest there

Mama told me, Papa did too
"Some of these women gonna be the death of you
You better find out which one you crave
Son, some of these women'll take you to your grave"

Oh, the boardwalk's deserted
There's nobody down by the shore
And the Ferris wheel ride
Isn't turning around anymore

You'll never know
That I still love you so
Though the heartaches remain

They think that I'm a rover
But my rovin' days are over
Someday your folks will welcome me

I remember it all very well, looking back
It was the summer I turned eighteen
We lived in a one-room run-down shack
On the outskirts of New Orleans

How am I doing?
You really want to know?
Oh, I guess I'm doing fine
It's been so long now
But it seems like it was only yesterday

What are you gonna say to your friends
When the talk around town begins?
Will you tell them how you treated me bad?
Will you tell them how you made me so sad?

Back on the farm or in the city
In any old town, they sure are pretty
Doin' a dance or bakin' a cake
Ridin' or walkin', they're simply great

Tables turned and here you are a-beggin' me
To take you back, you got me feelin' sad and blue
I feel so bad I wanna cry
I ain't gonna tell you no lie

I'm trying hard not to let myself go
Work out, everything is all right
The way you move you're just out of sight

You are with somebody new
And I don't know what to do
'Cause I'm still in love with you

I'm in way over my head
Now she thinks that I love her
Because that's what I said
Though I never think of her

When I come home from work
With a big smile and feeling gay
Suspiciously, my wife, she says
"Hey, where you been all day?"

The music of her laughter
Hid my father's words from me

It's been ten years or maybe more
I never got married and that's for sure
You broke my heart and now I know
I've been a fool for you so here I go

You'll find this dance is so cool to do
Come on, baby, gonna teach it to you

I can turn a gray sky blue, uh
I can make it rain whenever I want it to
Oh, I can build a castle from a single grain of sand
I can make a ship sail, huh, on dry land

Every time you go away
I always say
This time it's goodbye, dear


Well, I oughta go home where I belong
But your power over me is much too strong
You're not the kind that could ever be true

But if you want to play
Stay right back on earth
Waiting for rebirth
