Lyrics AIN'T NO SOUL
LEFT IN THESE OLD SHOES
SINCE YOU BEEN GONE
WE AIN'T TOGETHER,
WHY SHINE THAT LEATHER
AND PUT THEM ON.
THOUGH I STILL FEEL
THE RHYTHM,
CAN'T DO NO DANCING
WITH THEM,
AIN'T NO SOUL
LEFT IN THESE OLD SHOES
SINCE YOU BEEN GONE.

THESE OLD LACES
THAT TOOK ME PLACES
JUST WON'T TIE
MUSIC BANGS OUT
BUT THIS TONGUE
HANGS OUT,
AND SEEMS TO CRY.
THOUGH I STILL FEEL
THE RHYTHM,
CAN'T DO NO DANCING
WITH THEM,
AIN'T NO SOUL
LEFT IN THESE OLD SHOES
SINCE YOU BEEN GONE.

UNTIL YOU COME BACK, HON,
THEY'RE GOING TO STAY
UNDERNEATH MY BED
THEY WANT TO DANCE,
BUT DON'T GET THE CHANCE,
BECAUSE LIKE I SAID:
THOUGH I STILL FEEL
THE RHYTHM,
CAN'T DO NO DANCING
WITH THEM,
AIN'T NO SOUL
LEFT IN THESE OLD SHOES
SINCE YOU BEEN GONE.

Lyrics THE FIRST RULE
IS THERE AIN'T NO RULES
SOME YOU WIN
AND SOME YOU LOSE.
JUST WHEN YOU THINK
THAT LOVE IS TRUE
SOMEBODY
MAKES A FOOL OUTTA YOU,
LIKE IT OR NOT,
ONE THING'S FOR SURE
ALL IS FAIR
IN LOVE AND WAR.

YOU AND ME
MAKE LOVE ALL NIGHT,
END UP
IN A KNOCK DOWN DRAG OUT FIGHT,
KICK AND CUSS
AND SCREAM AND SHOUT,
TILL WE'VE FORGOTTEN
WHAT WE'RE FIGHTIN' ABOUT.
THEN WE KISS
AND MAKE UP
AND LOVE SOME MORE
'CAUSE ALL IS FAIR
IN LOVE AND WAR.

ANYTHING GOES
WHEN IT COMES TO LOVE
SOMEONE'S GOIN' DOWN
WHEN PUSH COMES TO SHOVE.
IT'S A FIGHT TO THE FINISH
WITH NO HOLDS BARRED,
IF SOMEONE WINDS UP
WITH A BROKEN HEART,
THAT'S TOUGH.

BABY, YOU KNOW
THAT I SURE WOULD GRIEVE
IF YOU WERE EVER TO LEAVE ME.
GUESS I'D HAVE TO FIND ME
SOMEONE NEW,
SOMEONE WHO'S
A LITTLE BIT PRETTIER THAN YOU
JUST TO EVEN UP THE SCORE,
'CAUSE ALL IS FAIR
IN LOVE AND WAR.

LIKE IT OR NOT,
ONE THING'S FOR SURE,
ALL IS FAIR
IN LOVE AND WAR.

Lyrics NEVER HAD IT SO GOOD,
NEVER HAD IT SO GOOD
BEFORE.
NEVER HAD IT SO GOOD,
NEVER HAD IT SO GOOD
BEFORE.

ONLY ONCE IN A LIFETIME
THE RIGHT GIRL COMES ALONG.
WHEN YOU FIND HER
YOUD BETTER HOLD ON.
COULD I LEAVE MY BABY?
NO,
I DONT THINK I COULD,
BECAUSE:

I NEVER HAD IT SO GOOD,
I NEVER HAD IT SO GOOD
BEFORE.

IM ALWAYS SO PROUD
TO TAKE HER OUT,
AND WHEN IM AROUND THE GUYS,
SHES ALL I TALK ABOUT.
AND SHE TREATS ME,
OH,
JUST LIKE SHE SHOULD,
AND I:

NEVER HAD IT SO GOOD,
NEVER HAD IT SO GOOD
BEFORE.

NOW I WANT TO
TELL THE WORLD
ABOUT MY GIRL
SHE IS LIKE THE RAIN
THAT MAKES A FLOWER GROW,
THATS WHY
I LOVE HER SO.
SHE PLEASES ME
IN EVERY WAY,
I MEAN WHAT I SAY:

NEVER HAD IT SO GOOD,
NEVER HAD IT SO GOOD BEFORE.
NEVER HAD IT SO GOOD,
NEVER HAD IT SO GOOD
BEFORE.

SHE MAKES ME FORGET
ABOUT THE BAD TIMES,
MY HEARTACHES
AND CARES,
THEY ARE ALL LEFT BEHIND.
COULD I LEAVE MY BABY?
NO,
I DONT THINK I COULD
BECAUSE I:

NEVER HAD IT SO GOOD,
NEVER HAD IT SO GOOD
BEFORE.
NEVER HAD IT SO GOOD,
NEVER HAD IT SO GOOD
BEFORE.
NEVER HAD IT SO GOOD,
NEVER HAD IT SO GOOD
BEFORE.
NEVER HAD IT SO GOOD,
NEVER HAD IT SO GOOD
BEFORE.

Lyrics WHEN A GIRL
LOVES A GUY,
THE WAY
I LOVE MY BABY,
I GUESS
YOU COULD CALL HER,
A LITTLE BIT CRAZY.
BECAUSE MY LOVE
IS SO STRONG,
THERE IS
NO RIGHT OR WRONG,
WHEN IT COMES
TO MY BABY,
MY BABY,
MY BABY.
WHEN WE'RE ALONE,
I LOSE ALL SENSE
OF TIME,
I GUESS THAT'S WHAT
SOME FOLKS CALL
A ONE TRACK MIND.
HE KISSES ME
IN A SPECIAL WAY,
AND ANYTHING HE SAYS
IS OKAY,
BECAUSE HE'S MY BABY,
MY BABY,
MY BABY.

TO ME
HE IS LIKE A KING.
AND YOU KNOW,
I SAID YOU KNOW
JUST WHAT I MEAN.
AND I CAN'T HELP,
BUT I NEED HIM SO,
AND WHERE HE LEADS ME
I MUST GO.

AND WHEN I SAY
I LOVE HIM,
OTHER WORDS
JUST SEEM SMALL.
I GUESS
THEY JUST AIN'T
WROTE THE BOOK
ON HOW
TO TELL IT ALL.
I GAVE HIM
ALL I HAD TO GIVE,
FOR WITHOUT HIM
THERE'S NO LIFE
FOR ME TO LIVE,
BECAUSE HE'S MY BABY,
MY BABY,
MY BABY,
BECAUSE HE'S MY BABY,
MY BABY,
MY BABY.
