I think of you
And things you do
Go 'round my head
The things you said
Like "I love only you"

If I had known right from the start
It would have been easy for us to part
But I had built my whoa-whole life on you
And then you told me we were through
Oh! Oh!

Someday, baby, you're gonna find
Nobody in the world's gonna give you lovin' as sweet as mine

Now if there's any good in me
I'll bring it out so that you might see
That I'm just another lonely man
Who wants to stop my sin and all over begin

I, I
Finally found what I'm looking for
Love, sweet love
Came 'round knockin' on my door

First we hop, yeah yeah yeah
Then we bop, yeah yeah yeah
Then we slop or rock 'n' roll
We'll do the stroll

When you're gone
I'm such a lonely man
When you're gone
My heart don't be but sad

Now all my fathers, they've gone down
True love, they've been without it
But all their daughters put me down
'Cause I don't think about it

It's tired and I'm getting late
I try to speak but I can't relate
The DJ says I need my rest
Like a storm-lost bird I can't find my nest

There are new dreams
Crowdin' out old realities
There's revolution
Sweepin' in like a fresh new breeze
Let the old world make believe
It's blind and deaf and dumb

The sound of your footsteps
Telling me that you're near
Your soft, gentle motion, baby
Brings out a need in me that no one can hear

You guys think girls are toys
And you're supposed to use them
So you cheat them, tell them lies
And now you're gonna abuse them
But girls are made to be loved
And this is plain to see

Come to my door, baby
Face is clean and shining black as night
My mother went to answer
You know that you looked so fine

She may not be the best lookin' woman I ever did see
Nor have the charms of the ladies of high society

Girl, how do you move your hips so fine
Girl, work it out right on time
Everybody's got the beat
Hey, look at me

Oh, won't you please come back
Without your precious love I can't go on
It's haunting me
I need you so much

I hardly ever thank the stars above
For sending me your very precious love
You never hear me say a prayer
Of thanks to someone way up there
Who gave me such a lucky break

You tell me no, then you tell me yes
You keep my mind a wreck
I'm not gonna ever rest
I'm gonna get you yet

A million little tears I've shed
Went through your heart and through your head
I would have bought the world for you
But now here's what I'm gonna do

Ain't nothing you've done been right
You stay out late at night
You know you do me wrong
So you can't be here alone
You might as well confess
'Cause you know I've done my best

Don't try and understand me, you never could do that
Ah, and in the end you'd wind up being hurt
I'm a man with too many problems
That keep pounding on my brain

It may be zero degrees
With the snow falling down
I've got warm and tender love
Just as long as he's around

I was afraid he'd come back some day
And I'd be the one to lose
I knew when you saw him you wouldn't ignore him
And he'd be the one you'd choose

Let's go, let's go, let's go, little sweetheart
Now that we can always be together

Every day I walk some lo-o-nely street
Searching for you to tell you "Come back to me"
People around me stop and stare
As if they know the hurt I bear


Mother looked at me
She was a-peepin' through the window
The way she looked at me
Boy, I thought I was a sinner

I thought you'd listen to my reasoning
But now I see you don't hear a thing
Try to make you see
How it's got to be
