If your baby treats you wrong
Don't go 'round singing the blues
Remember my friend, everybody can't win
Somebody, somebody's got to lose

In the beginning, you really loved me
I was too blind, I couldn't see
But now you've left me
Oh, how I cried

And girl, I don't really blame you
For having a dream of your own

There's more than seven wonders in the world
I just met number eight

If freedom were a thing that money could buy
The rich would live and the poor would die

What you gonna do when the well runs dry?
You're gonna sit right down and cry
What you gonna do when I say bye-bye?
All you gonna do is dry your eye

So always make me wonder
Always make me guess
And even if I ask you
Darling, don't confess

Do the Locomotion, yeah!
Don't hurry me this way
Shake it, shake it to the break of day

If I knew a step or two
The same as you
I'd have a chance
For romance

When you held me close
When you made my soul roast

If you could only see me
I know exactly where I am
You wouldn't want to be me
Oh, I can assure you of that

Up to bat (to bat)
I thought I hit a love run
But to my surprise
I found I didn't hit none

I woke up this morning, baby
Yes, and I called your name
I felt so much love this morning
Little girl, little girl, it was a shame

From the very start
Open up your heart

Watch the jingle-jangle start to shine
Reflections of the music that is mine
When you toss a coin you'll hear it sing

Well, I'd go to the river
Jump right in
Drown my tears
'Cause I can't win

If you believe what I've told you
Let me hold you
Say you'll love me

I know you think I was untrue
But I'll explain the facts to you

I'd rather be lonely, I'd rather be blue
Yes, I'd rather spend my whole life without you
Than feather a nest to be shattered apart

I'm yours, heart and soul I'm yours
And all that I'll ever possess
But if you should say to me
Will you always be
I just have to confess

You brighten up, baby, each and every day that I have to face
And if the sun don't shine, your smile is there to take its place

Well, I asked a local lover and he told me what to do
He said learn the rocking dances, both old and new
But it's hard to do those dances with two left feet
So I've got to find a method that'll work for me

I don't have plans and schemes

For miracles are never seen

Make up your mind to have (make up your mind to have)
No regrets (no regrets)
Recline yourself
Resign yourself, you're through


Then I'm sorry to let you down
But you're from my side of town
And I'll miss you

My mother would say
If I brought you home
"Son, never leave her alone"
