Girl, there's a better life for me and you

If I give my heart to you
I must be sure from the very start
That you would love me more than her

When you say that you love me, Honey
When you really mean my money

More than the meadow so green and still
More than the mulberries on the hill
More than the buds on a May apple tree

Well, I was rollin' down the highway
T' see my baby Ruth
Car broke down
Tire blew out
Found a telephone booth
I tried to call my honey

I plopped down in my easy chair and turned on channel two

You know that
My love is growing stronger
And I can wait no longer
Been saving my love just for you

You took me away from the rest of the world
When you taught me to love you like this
Now I hang by a thread in the canyon of doom
But I still can be saved by your kiss

Just let it remain a secret
But, Darling, I love you so
No wonder, no wonder I wonder

Some people like to rock
Some people like to roll
But movin' and a-groovin's gonna satisfy my soul

I love that jive
Just wind me up and I'll come alive
Throw me a woman with a style and grace
Then stand back, Buddy, and give me space

I still ask my friends what to do
But it seems they don't know
How to bring, how to bring you back
They say, "What made him go?"

Your silver beams
Can lead the way to golden dreams
So shine, shine, please shine

Hold me close, hold me tight
Make me thrill with delight
Let me know where I stand from the start

I'm now on her list
I'm just another fool that couldn't resist

Don't you worry about what's on your mind, oh my
I'm in no hurry, I can take my time, oh my

Should I give up and say it's over
You know I never could
Our love was much too good
I can't sit back and watch it die

And then we'll move on
But we will remember
Long after Saturday's gone

There's a new world somewhere
They call the promised land
And I'll be there someday
If you will hold my hand

You were my first love
And you'll be my last love
I will never make you blue
I'll be true to you

It's an institute you can't disparage
Ask the local gentry
And they will say it's elementary

Listen to me
Cynthia and Jerry got a message they're sayin'
All the squares go home

He's awful nice
It's paradise
I hope I'm not his decoy

I've waited so long for you to write me
But just a memory's all that's left of you

The sweet sixteen
The moments in between
That New Year's Eve we won't forget


I told my mama
And my dad
What I had
Was the sweetest
And the neatest
Little girl
In the world

Holy Father up above
Please protect the boy I love
Keep him strong and keep him pure
For he's the one I love, I'm sure
