The basic facts of life have been denied
You buried your emotions deep inside
Don't keep running in the wrong direction
Come on baby, give me some affection

Well, I'm a California man
My instrument in hand
I'm electrified
On a fast-flyin' trip
Dirty laundry in my grip
Mostly drip-dry

I think I'll take a walk and look for her

Gee, I hope you're feelin' better
Not just like the time before
Remember when you closed that door?

I'd like to say I wish that you were mine
If I had you, all I would do is adore you all of the time

Straight ahead and steady as Gibraltar (yeah)
'Til you brought me tumblin' to the ground

I love nobody but you
Nobody but you
Nobody but you

Loves me even when I'm bad
She knows how to love me right down to her teeth
If she does any wrong, you know she keeps it from me

Well, everybody needs somebody sometimes

Don't do it if you don't want to 
I wouldn't do a thing like that
No, don't do it if you don't want to 
I wouldn't do a thing like that

Then you'd know why I feel blue

One generation got old
One generation got soul
This generation got no destination to hold
Pick up the cry
Hey, now it's time for you and me

A-whoa whoa whoa whoa my baby
You look so good
A-yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, my baby
Just like I knew you would

I'll find a way to please you every day

This is my last time
Not asking anymore
If you don't do right
I'm gonna march out of that door

What would I do if she should meet me
And find me kissing you?
She's always trusted me completely
Her poor heart would break in two

I've been so wrong
Darling, I apologize
It took me so long, but I finally realized
I can't go on 'til I know love's around the bend

That you look lovely as can be
Are you lonely just like me?

Tell me why you're crying, my son
I know you're frightened like everyone
Is it the thunder in the distance you fear?
Will it help if I stay very near?

Her hair is soft and her eyes are oh-so-blue
She's all the things a girl should be

You are tired and you want to be free
My love is growing stronger 
As you become a habit to me

It was such a thrill it was hurting me
I was suffering in ecstasy

He gets me in the dark and he says he's my man
But when we walk down the streets he never holds my hand
He says one day that he will marry me
But he tells his friends that that will never be

Down in Louisiana, where the alligators grow so mean
There lived a girl, that I swear to the world
Made the alligators look tame

If Shakespeare thought that Juliet
Really loved Romeo from the time they met
He would blow his top if he could see
Just how you've been lovin' me


My girl just called me up
And woke me from my sleep
You should've heard the things she said
You know she hurt my feelings deep
I should have told her that I needed her
When I had the chance
But now she's left me and it's all over
Goodbye, romance
