He didn't fly down from heaven
With white wings on his back
He blew in from Kansas City
In a big fat Cadillac
Yeah, he said he made his bread playin' rock 'n' roll

When you tell me goodbye
You left me so blue
When you were untrue

He's as blind as he can be
Just sees what he wants to see

In every little town 'cross the U.S.A.
There's a spot where the people can go every day
Just leave your problems and-a get away
Come on down and listen to the guitars play

Listen to me, baby
It's hard to settle down

To the world, I'd cry out loud
How I love you
Honey, I love you
I really love you

True true, true true the song he sang her while the leaves cooked
Ting ting, ting a little bell he rang her, sleepily she looked
He filled, he filled a leather cup, holding her gaze
She took, she took a little sip while this song he sang

We're gonna do the Monkey, the Philly Dog too
We're gonna do the Jerk, just me and you

Though we must part
There's no reason to cry

All the way from Kosciusko
Up from Biloxi shore
All in all, there's not a half-grown man

You don't know me, baby
Like I know myself
If you leave me, baby
I would kill myself

The things you've heard couldn't be denied
But before your opinion, listen to my side

Life without you
Was an incomplete dream
You are every sweet dream
Come true

Feelin' sorry for myself is all I do
Things don't ever turn out like I want 'em to

Look out, little fool
You're not wise, not wise to love so completely
Or fall for that look in his eyes

For though we're brave sometimes, we are so afraid
But knowing there are memories to be made
We'll face each new tomorrow, dear, undismayed
For our love will keep us together

Too restless to settle
Too wild to tame

I tell my arms they'll hold someone new
Another love that will be true

Now when you walk that walk, yeah, baby
You know you look so fine
When you talk that talk, oh, child
You know you just drive mens outta their mind

I know a lot of people think like me
That this world could be a place that's filled with harmony

I went to a dance just the other night
I saw a girl there, she was out of sight
I asked a friend of mine who she could be

On the rug, or on the wall
If your folks get bugged
Do it in the hall

I need love now, more than before
I can hardly carry on anymore

She wants me to run but I shall never
For all is fair in love and war
Your tender love I'll fight her for

You know, my papa disapproved it
My mama boo-hoo'd it
But I told them time and time again


This one thing I will vow you
I'd rather die than to live without you

It's so many miles and so long since I've met you
Don't even know what I'll find when I get to you
But suddenly now I know where I belong
It's many hundred miles and it won't be long
