There was a little girl I had planned to marry
This was my love, I didn't want to share it
I thought that love would make my life bright and sunny
She said she couldn't love me 'cause I didn't have no money

You're so pretty, you're so fine
I wonder will I ever make you mine
Things I wanna say, things I wanna do
But most of all, I wanna fall in love with you

Heaven is in your eyes
Bright as the stars we're under
Oh, is there any wonder?

Well, now, hey-hey, baby, hey-hey, now
What you tryin' to do, huh?
Hey-hey, baby, hey-hey, now
Please don't say we're through

Are you sure that I'm not the one?
Is your love real or only fun?

I feel so good
And knock-knock-knock on wood
Yeah, I'm in a whirl
I just love that girl

Baby, honey, don't leave me worried, oh, oh
Yeah, baby, honey, don't leave me worried, oh

Can't get the car, my marks ain't been so good
My love life just ain't swingin' like it should

Uncertain, he tags along behind
Uncertain, 'til she makes up his mind

Our trips to the ocean were so much fun
Remember the games we almost won

Every chance you get, you seem to hurt me more and more
But each hurt makes my love stronger than before

Now, some of us would rather cuss
And make a fuss
Than to bring about a little trust

How can you ask me to try and get by with just one little kiss?
(One little kiss)
The kissin' you do, I need a second helpin' too
(Need a second helpin', need a second helpin' too)

Although I'll still live on
But so lonely I'll be

No, I won't be afraid
Oh, I won't be afraid

Was I surprised, yeah
Was I surprised, no not at all

We were all alone
You told me that you cared (you told me that you cared)
And I never will forget
How happy I was that we were there

Here's our old favorite record
I can't stand to hear it anymore
Here's some old lingering love
It's in my heart and it's tearin' it apart

Remember the night I met you?
We danced until a quarter to two
You held my hands and you kissed my lips
Baby, what you tryin' to do-woo-woo-woo?

"Don't put your faith in love, my boy"
My father said to me

You told me lies, now it's
Your turn to cry, cry, cry

For blue-blooded girls of independent means
We'd ride in limousines
Their chauffeurs would drive

Spend his very last dime
Tryin' to hold on to what he needs

We went to Mama and showed her my diamond ring
She said "My poor little baby
You must be crazy
To think of such a thing"

Now, you kissed me and you rocked my soul
Don't come around knockin' rock and roll


Smokin' marijuana is more fun than drinkin' beer
But a friend of ours was captured and they gave him thirty years
Maybe we should raise our voices, ask somebody why
But demonstrations are a drag, besides we're much too high

Linda's got looks
Jean reads books
Cindy can sew
But I'd rather know
