You think you've lost your love
Well, I saw her yesterday

Honey, what's this jazz about love, honor, and obey?
That cat's talkin' to me!

A time to be born, a time to die
A time to plant, a time to reap

When I feel blue in the night
And I need you to hold me tight

Without your sweet love
What would life be?

I miss her lips and the smile on her face
The touch of her hand and this girl's warm embrace

Everyone is dancing
Yes, and gay
Cheetah, Boy, and Tarzan
Even Jane
Swinging from the trees

Well, I told your mama that you'd be in by ten

I left my baby and I feel so bad
I guess my race is run
Well, she's the best gal I've ever had

My dreams can all come true if you'll care for me
This love that I feel for you was just meant to be

Why do you miss
When my baby kisses me?

Just tonight I stood before the tavern
Nothing seemed the way it used to be

I recall the yellow cotton dress
Foaming like a wave
On the ground around your knees

Young girls picked them, every one

Hiya, folks
You say you lost your job today?
You say it's 4 AM and your kids ain't come home from school yet?

It's thunder and rain
But it's all the same
(La-la-la-la, la-la-la-la, la)
Ha, I'm payin' for this call
And I don't mind at all
Don't know just what I said wrong
But girl, I apologize
Don't go, here's where you belong
So wipe the tears from your eyes

I won't let you leave my love behind

The music stopped, there wasn't a sound
Over in the corner stood Bad Man Brown
Brown smiled and grinned, he said, "My friend,
You take three steps farther and I'm gonna do you in"

I'd ring it in the morning
I'd ring it in the evening

A heart can be easily broken
A heart can even stand still
A heart can be easily broken
But I know that mine never will

When he holds me tight
And he says he's mine
Sends those chills up and down my spine
Whoa-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh, whoa-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh
He's the handsomest boy (he's the handsomest boy) that I ever did see

And the people in the houses
All go to the university

Well, darlin', now that you're gone
I don't know what I'll do
All the time and all my love for you

Please turn me loose
What's the use?


Want some whiskey with your water?
Or sugar in your tea?
What are these crazy questions they're asking me?
This is the wildest party that ever could be

So I fell down on my knees and I prayed
That the Lord would end our evil ways
And you threw your lovin' arms around me
