At the first moment
Turn away from unclean thinking
At the first moment

Oh, that's how elementary
It's gonna be

Eight o'clock in the morning
And I'm movin' on out to school
With an open book and a sleepy look
The teacher can't be fooled

As I look back on a love so sweet, now

Well, Friday night has finally come around
And me and my baby gonna head for a spot we found
We're gonna forget our cares and dance on into the night

We could float among the stars together
You and I

The backwood majority
No hold bar-ity
Come as you are-ity

Oh, way up high
Up in the sky
Oh, tell me why
Oh, tell me why
You've lost your splendor

You go through life
Making fools out of others
Pretending you're just giving them love
But remember, sister or brother
You've got to answer to the one up above

If I made a scene
Each time you were mean
We'd be quarrelin' all the time

I've got a feeling, I feel so strange
Everything about me seems to have changed
Step by step, I got a brand new walk
I even sound sweeter when I talk

You're doin' something no one can
Because believin' and deceivin'
It's drivin' me to grievin' now

Although I know you said goodbye to me-ee
I can't help thinkin' how it used to be
I guess I'll always be in love with you-ou
I can't forget the things we used to do

It's my belief
Pride is the chief cause
In the decline
In the number

Give me heartaches
Scold me
Give me cause to hurt again
Hear me well now
Give me blame

When I want some lovin'
You're gone
Don't you know you're treatin'
Your daddy wrong

And if I had the chance
I'd never let you go

Something in your eyes
Was so inviting
Something in your smile
Was so exciting

I don't carry a pistol
I don't wear a false mustache
And you never see me carryin'
Around a little black bag

You only want to break us up
And use me for a time
Then you'll leave my cryin'
I've heard it all before
Your other boys have told me

I need your kiss (I need your kiss)
My whole life through (my whole life through)
There is no me without you
Don't want nobody else's lips touching you (nobody else's lips)
Don't want no one to feel the sweet things that you do

Have your fling, be gay with your new love
I'm setting you free
Dance and sing, pretend that it's true love
Don't worry 'bout me

I was strollin' thru the park one night
And oh, I felt so blue
When I heard a little voice say
"I'm so lonely too"

And all about me
They know you have departed without me
And we, we wondered why

My love for you is too strong
We've been together for all too long
I've told my mother and father too
I'd give them both up before I lose you


Tell me (tell me)
That you really love me (I love you)
Tell me you really need me
So I am sure

I remember when the answers seemed so clear
We had never lived with doubt or tasted fear
It was easy then to tell truth from lies
Selling out from compromise
