So golly gee fellas
Have a little faith in me fellas

Millions of eyes can see
Yet why am I so blind
When the someone else is me
It's unkind, it's unkind

There's a village
Hidden deep in the valley
Among the pine trees half forlorn
And there on a sunny morning

Whisper to the wind
And say that love has sinned
Leave my heart a-breaking
And making a moan

If you come down to the river
Bet you gonna find the people who live
You don't have to worry
'Cause you have no money
People on the river happy to give

The roller coaster ride we took is nearly at an end
I bought my ticket with my tears
That's all I'm gonna spend

Life grows short
And men grows old
Summer's gone
And the wind turns cold

So we can go fishing in my little red boat
Make you happy in my little red boat

Paste my picture on your sleeve
So everyone can see
That you belong to me
Forever forever forever

Look at the way he looks at her
Look at the way he smiles
I remember he was mine
I remember when things were fine
Oh look at the way he looks at her now

Look at Annie's earrings bouncin' off her back
Look at Susie kissin' and a-huggin' Jack
Look at Nancy dancin' in her stockin' feet
We're all going crazy with the Mambo beat

But miracles still happen
And when my lucky star begins to shine
With one lucky break I'll make

Where have all the young men gone
Long time passing
Where have all the young men gone
Long time ago

She's built for speed
She got everything that Uncle John need

Lucky you're a girl who likes children
That's an important sign
Lucky 'cause I'd love to have children

Hey baby yeah you thrill me so
Hold me tight don't you let me go

Although we're apar-rt
You're par-rt of my hear-rt

Crew cut and a pony tail
Do the crawl just like a snail
Gettin' ready to
Go steady on

Have you seen her all in gold
Like a queen in days of old
She shoots colors all around
Like a sunset going down

Your sweetheart in Personnel said I should give her written notice like the rest
So I wrote "Goodbye" with my brightest lipstick right across her big expensive desk
You'd better call the Times and tell them put your wanted ad right back in Classified

Wondered if it could be true that you had found somebody new
To take the place I've known
Finally it got so late I saw I was a fool to wait
So I walked home alone

I love every movement
There's nothing I would change
She doesn't need improvement
She's much too nice to rearrange

My tears are fallin'
'Cause you've taken her away
And though it really hurts me so
There's something that I've gotta say

Take me in oh tender woman
Take me in for heaven's sake
Take me in tender woman

One has brown eyes
The other's eyes are blue
To one I am tied
To the other I am true


Are you still our Valentine
Do you still look so divine
Come and let us see your darlin'

You're going to lose a good thing
You got to let him know that you need him
You got to let him know that you read him
You got to let him know that you love him now
