When you know you're lonely
You're not the one and only

But when you discover that your life is dreary
Don't you come a-knockin' on my door
Why, I'll be all dolled up and singin' that song that says
You dog, I told you so

Last night I was blind
But today I see
I did you wrong

I wonder why nobody don't like me
Or is it the fact that I'm ugly?

You've grown tired
And now you say we're through 

I lived my life and shunned the naked light of day
And only now I see the years ran away

Hip!  She tells me to jump and I jump
(Jump Jump!)  Ho!  She tells me to dance and I dance
Gotta listen or get no kissin'

Do you remember me, Baby
Like I remember you
You used to laugh at me
And holler, "Who who who"

I stood on this corner
Waiting for you to come along
So my heart could feel satisfied

I can't help it if that doggoned moon above
Makes me need someone like you to love

When my bankroll is getting small
I think of when I had none at all
And I fall asleep

And night after night
As strange as it seems
The sound of her laughter 
Will sing in your dreams

I gave that notion up the day
A lumberjack came in, and it wasn't to pray

I couldn't sleep at all last night
Just a-thinking of you

It's starrin' me and my sweet dream
'Cause she's the one makes me feel this way

I warned her of the dangers
Don't speak to strangers
Did by chance
She find new romance

Crowded streets, busy feet hustle by him
Downtown shoppers, Christmas is nigh

When the world outside my house is pulling us apart
Press your lips to mine and hold me with your heart

How come every time I'm with her
She whispers so soft and low
It makes me want to jump and holler
And bump my head into a door

Heal the sick, raise the dead
Make the little girls talk out of their heads

Here's a chance to change your mind
'Cause I'll be gone a long long time 

Every time I call on you
It seems it's positively true
That you've been out with someone I once knew

Tonight I'll sing my songs again
And I'll play the game and pretend

He says her lips are warm
Each time they kiss goodnight
And just as sweet as any lips can be

Think of me
When you're away
Call me darling
Just once a day


Well, sometimes, I might get drunk
Walk like a duck and smell like a skunk

I don't know why my heart flips
I only know it does
I wonder why I love you, Baby
I guess it's just because
