Just one more thing girl
Give back my ring to me
And darling you'll be free

Cadillac doin' about 95
We was bumper to bumper
Rollin' side by side

The magnolia blossoms they fill the air
Yeah and if you ain't been to heaven then you ain't been there

Well, it's better than the cha-cha
Better than the swim
Everybody come join in
And dance, dance, dance

Oh my love you've been good to me
Femme jolie, femme jolie
I could love you so easily
Femme jolie, femme jolie

Don't know much about geography
Don't know much trigonometry
Don't know much about algebra

That same tingle I feel inside
And then that elevator starts its ride
And down and down I go
All around I go

If you wanted the star that shines so brightly
To match the stardust in your eyes
Darling I would chase that bright star nightly
And try to steal it from the sky

So be my guest
You've got nothin' to lose
Won't you let me take you

You got me where you want me
I ain't nothin' but your fool
You treated me mean
You treated me cruel

What is the cause
Your light withdraws
Is it because, is it because
I've lost my love

She wants to return those things I bought her
Tell her she can keep them just the same

No we ain't gonna fight
Only God has the right
To decide who's to live and die

Oh big conniver
Nothin' but a jiver
I done got hip to your jive

Whenever I'm with him
Something inside starts to burning
And I'm filled with desire
Could it be the devil in me

Now I'm standing here
Strange, strange voices in my ears
I feel the tears

I was born in a trunk
Mama died and a daddy got drunk
Left me here to die or grow

Now they'll always be together
In that happy hunting ground

Now have you got yourself a brand new baby
Don't tell me maybe
Is it so
I got to know

All I want is to just be free
To live my life the way I wanna be
All I want is to just have fun
To live my life like it's just begun

Don't get everything, it's true
But what it don't get
I can't use

Why can't he see
How blind can he be
Someday he will see
That he was meant for me

Tell me my darling if you love me
Tell me if you feel the same
Come on and tell me my darling if you love me
Or if all the tears I shed were shed in vain

[voice 1] I was born in New York City
[voice 2] I was born in Georgia
[voice 1] Girl you're lookin' kind of pretty
[voice 2] Don't you think we ought to
[both voices] Get to know each other better

When the rooster crows at the break of dawn
Look out your window and I'll be gone
You're the reason that I'm travelin' on


When you're out in your car
It's a Saturday night and you're tired of ridin' around
And you don't wanna go to a picture show
'Cause you've seen every show in town

You don't like crazy music
You don't like rockin' bands
You just wanna go to a movie show
And sit there holdin' hands
