Lyrics YOU DIDN'T LOVE ME LONG
UNTIL THE THRILL
WAS GONE
THEN ANOTHER
MADE ME
YOUR OLD USED TO BE.
HOW LONG
CAN HIS LOVE LAST
WHEN THE NEW
WEARS OFF SO FAST;
THERE'LL ALWAYS BE
ANOTHER,
THEN ANOTHER
AND ANOTHER
JUST LIKE ME.

JUST LIKE ME
HE'LL UNDERSTAND
THE SORROW
OF LOVIN' YOU
TODAY
AND LOSING YOU
TOMORROW.
I'D WARN HIM
BUT HE'D CALL IT
JEALOUSY,
SO LET HIM BE
ANOTHER,
THEN ANOTHER
AND ANOTHER
JUST LIKE ME.

NOW YOU GO
ANYWHERE
FOR A BRAND NEW
LOVE AFFAIR,
SOMEBODY NEW
WHO THRILLS YOU
INSTANTLY.
WHEN THE THRILL
HAS CEASED TO CHILL
AND FROM THE PAST
I KNOW IT WILL;
THERE'LL ALWAYS BE
ANOTHER,
THEN ANOTHER
AND ANOTHER
JUST LIKE ME.

JUST LIKE ME
HE'LL UNDERSTAND
THE SORROW
OF LOVIN' YOU
TODAY
AND LOSING YOU
TOMORROW.
I'D WARN HIM
BUT HE'D CALL IT
JEALOUSY,
SO LET HIM BE
ANOTHER,
THEN ANOTHER
AND ANOTHER
JUST LIKE ME.

Lyrics I DON'T BELIEVE
YOU LOVE ME
ANYMORE...

LATELY
YOU'VE BEEN ACTING STRANGE
TO ME,
SOMEHOW
IT'S NOT THE WAY
IT USED TO BE.
YOU'RE DOING THINGS
YOU NEVER DARED
TO DO BEFORE,
AND I DON'T BELIEVE
YOU LOVE ME
ANYMORE.
I FELT YOUR LOVE
GROW COLDER
DAY BY DAY
WHEN I TRIED
TO HOLD YOU CLOSE
YOU TURNED AWAY.
THERE MUST BE SOMEONE ELSE
YOU'RE LONGING FOR,
AND I DON'T BELIEVE
YOU LOVE ME
ANYMORE.

GREENER PASTURES NOW
YOU THINK YOU'VE FOUND,
BUT WHAT WILL HAPPEN
WHEN THE GRASS
TURNS BROWN?
I'M HEARING THINGS
ON YOU
I'VE NEVER HEARD
BEFORE
AND I DON'T BELIEVE
YOU LOVE ME
ANYMORE.

I FELT YOUR LOVE
GROW COLDER...
NO, I DON'T BELIEVE
YOU LOVE ME
ANYMORE.

Lyrics verse 1:
THERE I WAS
IN ALL MY INNOCENCE,
LOVIN' YOU
WITH ALL MY MIGHT,
COME TO FIND
I DIDN'T HAVE ANY SENSE,
YOU HAD A DIFF'RENT DARLING
EVERY NIGHT!

Chorus
PEEL ME A 'NANNER,
TOSS ME A PEANUT,
I'LL COME SWINGIN'
FROM A COCONUT TREE.
PEEL ME A 'NANNER,
TOSS ME A PEANUT,
YOU SURE MADE A MONKEY
OUT OF ME.

verse 2:
I GAVE YOU KISSES
AND I GAVE YOU LOVIN',
TRIED TO PLEASE
YOUR EVERY LITTLE WHIM.
IT ALL ADDED UP
TO A BIG FAT NOTHIN',
LAST NIGHT YOU UPPED
AND RUN AWAY WITH HIM.

Chorus
PEEL ME A 'NANNER,
TOSS ME A PEANUT,
I'LL COME SWINGIN'
FROM A COCONUT TREE.
PEEL ME A 'NANNER,
TOSS ME A PEANUT,
YOU SURE MADE A MONKEY
OUT OF ME.

Lyrics THREE HEARTS IN A TANGLE,
ONE HEART
WILL HAVE TO BREAK.

verse 1:
TONIGHT AS I SIT
BY MY WINDOW
WATCHING THE PEOPLE
GO BY,
I'M TRYING
TO REACH A DECISION
BUT I KNOW
I CAN'T DO
WHAT'S RIGHT.

Chorus:
THREE HEARTS IN A TANGLE,
WHICH HEART
SHOULD I TAKE?
THREE HEARTS IN A TANGLE,
WHICH HEART
WILL I BREAK?

verse 2:
IF I CHOOSE
THE ONE
THAT I SHOULD CHOOSE,
THEN THE OTHER HEART
WOULD BREAK.
BUT IF I LEAVE THEM BOTH
THEN I'D SUFFER,
WHICH HEART WILL PAY
FOR MY MISTAKE?

Chorus:
THREE HEARTS IN A TANGLE,
WHICH HEART
SHOULD I TAKE?
THREE HEARTS IN A TANGLE,
WHICH HEART
WILL I BREAK?

verse 3:
TO ONE OF THESE HEARTS
I'M TIED TO,
AND TO THE OTHER HEART
MY LOVE IS TRUE.
EITHER WAY I GO
I'LL BRING SORROW,
ONE HEART
WILL BE BROKEN
IN TWO.

Chorus:
THREE HEARTS IN A TANGLE,
WHICH HEART
SHOULD I TAKE?
THREE HEARTS IN A TANGLE,
WHICH HEART
WILL I BREAK?

Lyrics THE OLD SMELL OF THE CORN
WAKES ME EVERY MORN,
I DRIVE TO THE STILL
FOR A TWENTY GALLON FILL.
LAWD,
I HATE TO GET DRESSED,
YOU DON'T GET A LOTTA REST
WHEN YOU'RE RUNNING
THE WHITE LIGHTNING EXPRESS.
I BUILT A TRICKY
LITTLE BUMPER
ON THE BACK OF MY CAR,
IT CAME IN HANDY
ONE DAY.
THE FEDERAL BOYS
LOCKED BUMPERS WITH ME,
I PUSHED A LITTLE BUTTON
AND I GOT AWAY.
WELL,
WITH ONE STATE DRY
AND THE OTHER ONE WET,
I'M GONNA END UP
TO BE A MILLIONAIRE YET.
FROM EAST TO WEST
I'M A-MASHIN'
THE BEST,
AND A-RUNNING
THE WHITE LIGHTNING EXPRESS.

WELL, MY MOMMY TOLD ME
IT'S ILLEGAL YOU SEE,
WHAT HAPPENED TO DAD
CAN HAPPEN TO ME.
MY DAD WAS THE BEST,
BUT THEY LAID HIM TO REST
FROM A-RUNNING
THE WHITE LIGHTNING EXPRESS.
I TOOK
MY MOONSHINE BABY ALONG
AND SHE'S GETTING PRETTY GOOD
AT MY TRICKS,
IF THE TEN PENNY NAILS
DON'T SLOW DOWN THE LAW,
SHE'LL POUR OUT THE OIL
AND RUN 'EM IN THE DITCH.
WELL,
WITH ONE STATE DRY
AND THE OTHER ONE WET,
I'M GONNA END UP
TO BE A MILLIONAIRE YET.
THAT IS
IF I DON'T MEET MY DEATH
FROM A-RUNNING
THE WHITE LIGHTNING EXPRESS.
