Lyrics YOU KNOW I LOVE YOU SO,
I'LL NEVER LET YOU GO;
AND DARLING,
I'LL BE TRUE,
FOR ALL MY LOVE BELONGS TO YOU.
YOU SET MY HEART AFIRE;
YOU ARE MY ONE DESIRE.
TELL ME YOU LOVE ME TOO,
FOR ALL MY LOVE BELONGS TO YOU.

THAT'S WHY I WANT YOU TO KNOW
I COULD NEVER LET YOU GO;
OUR LOVE WAS MEANT TO BE.
IT WOULD BE,
OH, SO THRILLING
TO KNOW THAT YOU ARE WILLING
TO SPEND YOUR LIFE WITH ME.

SO MAKE YOUR ANSWER YES;
YOU ARE MY HAPPINESS.
PLEASE DARLING SAY YOU DO,
FOR ALL MY LOVE BELONGS TO YOU.

Lyrics ANNIE HAD A BABY,
CAN'T WORK NO MORE.
ANNIE HAD A BABY,
CAN'T WORK NO MORE.
EV'RY TIME
SHE STARTS TO WORK
SHE HAS TO STOP
AND WALK THE BABY
ACROSS THE FLOOR.
SHE HAS TO WALK
WITH MY BABY
INSTEAD OF ME.
TALK TO THE BABY
INSTEAD OF ME.
SING TO THE BABY
INSTEAD OF ME.
NOW I KNOW
ANNIE UNDERSTOOD
THAT'S WHAT HAPPENS
WHEN THE GETTING
GETS GOOD!

Lyrics BABY,
WHY DO YOU THINK
WHAT I SAY
AIN'T TRUE?
YOU'VE GOT
A LOT OF NERVE
TO THINK
WE AIN'T THROUGH,
AND WITHOUT ME,
PRETTY BABY,
YOU WON'T
EVEN HAVE A CRUMB
TO EAT.
I'VE BEEN LISTENING
TO THAT JIVE
THAT YOU GAVE
YOUR ALL TO ME,
ALL I EVER GOT
FROM YOU
WAS AN EMPTY STOCKING
HANGING
ON MY CHRISTMAS TREE;
NOW THAT I'M LEAVING YOU,
PRETTY BABY,
WHERE
WILL YOUR
NEXT MEAL BE?

I TOLD YOU
THAT I LOVED YOU,
BUT THAT
WAS LONG AGO.
WHEN I WAS YOUNG
AND SIMPLE,
DIDN'T HAVE THE SENSE
TO KNOW.

SO I'M DOIN, IT,
I'M DOIN' IT,
I'M DOIN' IT,
I'M DOIN' IT,
I'M DOIN' IT,
I'M DOIN' IT,
I'M DOIN' IT,
I'M DOIN' IT,
I'M DOIN' IT;
NOW THAT I'M LEAVING,
PRETTY BABY,
WHERE WILL
YOUR NEXT MEAL BE?

I KNOW
I SAID I LOVE YOU,
I LOVE YOU,
LOVE YOU,
LOVE YOU SO,
BUT YOU AIN'T
GONNA HEAR
THOSE SWEET WORDS
NO MORE.
AND WITHOUT ME,
PRETTY BABY,
YOU WONT EVEN
HAVE A CRUMB
TO EAT.
I'M NEVER GONNA SAY
I'VE CHANGED MY MIND,
BECAUSE IF I DO
I KNOW
ILL BE LYING;
NOW I'M LEAVING,
PRETTY BABY,
WHERE WILL YOUR
NEXT MEAL BE?

I TOLD YOU
THAT I LOVED YOU,
BUT THAT
WAS LONG AGO.
WHEN I WAS YOUNG
AND SIMPLE,
DIDN'T HAVE THE SENSE
TO KNOW.

SO I'M DOIN' IT,
I'M DOIN' IT,
I'M DOIN' IT,
I'M DOIN' IT,
I'M DOIN' IT,
I'M DOIN' IT,
I'M DOIN' IT,
I'M DOIN' IT,
AND IM GLAD;
AND WITHOUT ME,
PRETTY BABY,
YOUR LIFE'S GONNA BE
MIGHTY SAD!

Lyrics BLUES STAY AWAY FROM ME
BLUES WHY DON'T YOU LET ME BE.
DON'T KNOW WHY
YOU KEEP ON HAUNTING ME?

LOVE WAS NEVER MEANT FOR ME
TRUE LOVE WAS NEVER MEANT FOR ME.
SEEMS SOMEHOW WE NEVER CAN AGREE.

LIFE IS FULL OF MISERY
DREAMS ARE LIKE A MEMORY.
BRINGING BACK YOUR LOVE
THAT USED TO BE.

TEARS,
SO MANY I CAN'T SEE
YEARS
DON'T MEAN A THING TO ME.
TIME GOES BY
AND STILL I CAN'T BE FREE.

Lyrics YOU GOT TO
MAKE UP YOUR MIND
BETWEEN ME
AND THE CHERRY WINE,
YOU GOT TO
MAKE UP YOUR MIND
BETWEEN ME
AND THE CHERRY WINE;
IF YOU DON'T
GIVE IT UP,
I KNOW
I''M WASTING MY TIME.

BABY,
I LOVE YOU,
LOVE YOU SO
BUT THE CHERRY WINE
HAS GOT TO GO.
YOU SAY YOU LOVE ME
BECAUSE I'M SO SWEET,
BUT YOUR CHERRY WINE
HAS GOT ME BEAT;
WINE,
WINE,
WINE,
SWEET WINE
ALL THE TIME;
YOU'RE GONNA HAVE TO CHOOSE
BETWEEN ME
AND THE CHERRY WINE.

YOU GOT TO
MAKE UP YOUR MIND
BETWEEN ME
AND THE CHERRY WINE,
YOU GOT TO
MAKE UP YOUR MIND
BETWEEN ME
AND THE CHERRY WINE;
IF YOU DON'T
GIVE IT UP,
I KNOW
I'M WASTING MY TIME.

THEY SEE YOU
LAYING IN THE ALLEY
FLAT ON YOUR BACK,
I BET
THEY'LL SOON FIND YOU
ACROSS A RAILROAD TRACK.
WINE,
WINE,
WINE,
SWEET WINE
ALL THE TIME;
YOU'RE GONNA HAVE TO CHOOSE
BETWEEN ME
AND THE CHERRY WINE.

YOU GOT TO
MAKE UP YOUR MIND
BETWEEN ME
AND THE CHERRY WINE,
YOU GOT TO
MAKE UP YOUR MIND
BETWEEN ME
AND THE CHERRY WINE;
IF YOU DON'T
GIVE IT UP,
I KNOW
I'M WASTING MY TIME.

IT'S GOT YOU TALKING
ALL OUT OF YOUR HEAD,
I EVEN FOUND BOTTLES
IN YOUR BED.
IF YOU DON'T HAVE THAT WINE
YOU'RE IN A RUT
BECAUSE YOUR BELLY THINKS
YOUR THROATS BEEN CUT.
WINE,
WINE,
WINE,
SWEET WINE
ALL THE TIME;
YOU'RE GONNA HAVE TO CHOOSE
BETWEEN ME
AND THE CHERRY WINE.

YOU GOT TO
MAKE UP YOUR MIND
BETWEEN ME
AND THE CHERRY WINE,
YOU GOT TO
MAKE UP YOUR MIND
BETWEEN ME
AND THE CHERRY WINE;
IF YOU DON'T
GIVE IT UP,
I KNOW
I'M WASTING MY TIME.

Lyrics YOU MADE ME CRY
BECAUSE YOU SAID
GOODBYE,
AND TEARS FROM MY EYES
MADE ME SOON REALIZE
HOW BLUE
AND I JUST
CAN'T GO ON WITHOUT YOU.
WHY MUST I BE
ALONE IN MISERY?
BE FAIR TO MY HEART
JUST BY SAYING
WE'LL START ANEW
AND I JUST
CAN'T GO ON WITHOUT YOU.

I SIT AROUND
ALMOST INSANE,
I'VE GOT IT BAD,
GOING MAD OVER YOU.
MAYBE YOU'VE FOUND
A NEW REFRAIN,
IF IT'S TRUE,
I DON'T KNOW
WHAT I'LL DO;
I NEED ROMANCE,
SO GIVE ME
ONE MORE CHANCE.
I PRAY FOR THE DAY
THAT I'LL SOON HEAR YOU SAY
YOU DO
FOR I JUST
CAN'T GO ON WITHOUT YOU.

Lyrics I LOVE YOU YES I DO,
I WANT YOU YES I DO,
I KNOW YOU KNOW IT'S TRUE
FROM THE WAY I LOOK AT YOU.
YOU LOVE ME YES YOU DO,
YOU NEED ME I NEED YOU,
THAT'S WHY I'M NEVER BLUE
SINCE I FIRST LAID EYES ON YOU.

I GUESS YOU KNEW IT FROM THE START
THAT THE DAY YOU TOOK MY HEART
YOU'RE THE ONE GIRL
I'LL ALWAYS ADMIRE.
DARLIN',
YOU'RE MY GUIDING STAR.
I MUST BE
WHERE EVER YOU ARE
'CAUSE YOU SET MY WORLD
ON FIRE.

I MISS YOU YES I DO,
MUST HUG YOU KISS YOU TOO,
I'M YOURS
MY WHOLE LIFE THROUGH,
I LOVE YOU YES I DO.

Lyrics I WANT A BOW-LEGGED WOMAN,
THAT'S ALL I WANT,
A BOW-LEGGED WOMAN
THAT'S TALL.
I'LL FALL IN LOVE WITH HER
RIGHT FROM THE START,
BECAUSE HER BIG FAT LEGS
ARE SO FAR APART.
I WANT A BOW-LEGGED WOMAN
RIGHT NOW,
I WANT TO FIND ME A GAL
SOMEHOW
SHE'S GOTTA BE BUILT
LIKE AN OLD BASS FIDDLE,
BIG BOW LEGS
WITH PLENTY ROOM
IN THE MIDDLE.
GOTTA BE ON MY WAY
TO FIND A BOW-LEGGED WOMAN
TODAY.

I WANT A BOW-LEGGED WOMAN RIGHT NOW,
I WANT TO FIND ME A GAL
SOMEHOW
SHE DON'T HAVE TO BE
NO GLAMOUR GIRL,
BUT SHE GOTTA HAVE HOOFS
LIKE A BIG OLD BEAR.
GOTTA BE ON MY WAY
TO FIND A BOW-LEGGED WOMAN
TODAY.

I FOUND A BOW-LEGGED WOMAN
LIST NIGHT,
AND MAN,
SHE WAS REALLY ALL RIGHT!
SHE HAD A SOLID STRADDLE
WHEN SHE CAME
INTO BATTLE,
I JUMPED
DEAD IN THE SADDLE,
YOU COULDN'T HEAR
A RATTLE,
AND THERE WAS NOBODY THERE
TO RUN AND TATTLE.
GOTTA BE ON MY WAY
TO BE
WITH MY BOW-LEGGED WOMAN
TODAY.

Lyrics IT BRINGS A TEAR
INTO MY EYES
WHEN I BEGIN
TO REALIZE
I CRIED SO MUCH
SINCE YOU'VE BEEN GONE,
I GUESS
I'LL DROWN IN MY OWN TEARS.
I SIT
AND CRY TEARS LIKE A CHILD,
MY POURING TEARS
ARE RUNNING WILD.
IF YOU DON'T THINK
YOU'LL BE HOME SOON,
I GUESS
I'LL DROWN IN MY OWN TEARS.

I KNOW IT'S TRUE
INTO EACH LIFE
SOME RAIN MUST POUR,
I'M SO BLUE
WITHOUT YOU
IT KEEPS RAININ'
MORE AND MORE.

WHY CAN'T YOU COME ON HOME
SO I WON'T BE ALL ALONE.
IF YOU DON'T THINK
YOU'LL BE HOME SOON,
I GUESS
I'LL DROWN IN MY OWN TEARS,
I GUESS
I'LL DROWN IN MY OWN TEARS,
I GUESS
I'LL DROWN IN MY OWN TEARS,
I GUESS
I'LL DROWN IN MY OWN TEARS,
I GUESS
I'LL DROWN IN MY OWN TEARS,
I GUESS
I'LL DROWN IN MY OWN TEARS.

Lyrics WELL, FOR YEARS AND YEARS
THEY SAY THAT
MONEY IS THE ROOT
OF ALL EVIL
TO A LOT OF MEN,
BUT IF YOU ASK ME
TO HAVE MY PICK,
I'LL TAKE THE MONEY,
YOU CAN HAVE THE CHICK.

I'M GOING TO HAVE MYSELF A BALL,
GOING TO HAVE A BALL,
GOING TO HAVE A BALL,
BECAUSE YOU NEVER KNOW
WHEN YOU GOT TO GO.

NOW, THERE'S ONE THING
THAT I ALWAYS SAY,
MAKE EVERY DAY A HOLIDAY.
WHEN YOU KICK THE BUCKET
IT'S JUST TOO BAD
LIFE IS TOO SHORT,
DON'T MAKE IT SAD.

I'M GOING TO HAVE MYSELF A BALL,
GOING TO HAVE A BALL,
GOING TO HAVE A BALL,
BECAUSE YOU NEVER KNOW
WHEN YOU GOT TO GO.

YOU CAN WORK AND WORK
AND HAVE NO FUN,
YOU WILL FIND OUT
YOU'RE THE CRAZY ONE.
TAXES ARE HIGH
AND RENT IS TOO,
BUT THERE IS ONE THING
YOU CAN ALWAYS DO:

YOU CAN HAVE YOURSELF A BALL,
HAVE YOURSELF A BALL,
HAVE YOURSELF A BALL,
BECAUSE YOU NEVER KNOW
WHEN YOU GOT TO GO.

MONEY IS SHORT
AND TIME IS LONG,
IF YOU HAVE A BALL
YOU CAN'T GO WRONG.
HAD PLENTY MONEY
WHEN I STARTED OUT,
BUT THE CHICKS
BEAT ME DOWN,
NOW I'M DOWN
AND OUT.

I'M GOING TO HAVE MYSELF A BALL,
GOING TO HAVE A BALL,
GOING TO HAVE A BALL,
BECAUSE YOU NEVER KNOW
WHEN YOU GOT TO GO.

I'M GOING TO GIVE YOU
SOME GOOD ADVICE,
TAKE THIS JIVE
AND TAKE IT TWICE!
TAKE A LITTLE BIT
OF THAT HARD EARNED PAY,
BUT PUT SOME AWAY
FOR A RAINY DAY.

YOU CAN HAVE YOURSELF A BALL,
HAVE YOURSELF A BALL,
HAVE YOURSELF A BALL,
BECAUSE YOU NEVER KNOW
WHEN YOU GOT TO GO.

I'M GOING TO HAVE MYSELF A BALL,
GOING TO HAVE A BALL,
GOING TO HAVE A BALL,
BECAUSE YOU NEVER KNOW
WHEN YOU GOT TO GO!

Lyrics CLOSE AS HAM
IS TO A COUNTRY HOG,
CLOSE AS A COLLAR
ON A DOG,
CLOSE AS THE FEATHERS
ON A CHICKEN'S BACK,
TIGHT AS A RAIL
ON A RAILROAD TRACK.

I'M STICKING TO YOU BABY,
I'M STICKING TO YOU BABY,
LIKE COLD ON ICE,
WHITE ON RICE,
I'LL BE WITH YOU
ALL THE TIME.

CLOSE AS THE NOSE
IS ON MY FACE,
CLOSE AS TWO HORSES
IN A DEAD HEAT RACE,
CLOSE AS THE BRAND
ON MY SUNDAY HAT,
I'M TELLING YOU BABY
THAT'S A NATURAL FACT.

I'M STICKING TO YOU BABY,
I'M STICKING TO YOU BABY,
LIKE COLD ON ICE,
WHITE ON RICE,
I'LL BE WITH YOU
ALL THE TIME.

LISTEN TO ME BABY
AS I TELL YOU ONCE MORE,
I'LL BE SNUG AS A RUG
ON THE LIVING ROOM FLOOR,
CLOSE AS THE PAPER
ON A BEDROOM WALL,
CLOSE AS I'LL BE
WHEN I HEAR YOU CALL.

I'M STICKING TO YOU BABY,
I'M STICKING TO YOU BABY,
LIKE COLD ON ICE,
WHITE ON RICE,
I'LL BE WITH YOU
ALL THE TIME!
