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 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 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 I MISS YOU
MORE THAN YOU KNOW,
I MISS YOU
MORE THAN I SHOW,
MY HEART
KEEPS TELLING ME.
SO DARLING,
LOVE ME TONIGHT.
I HAVE
BUT ONE REAL DESIRE,
TO BE THE ONE
YOU ADMIRE.
IF THERE'S A SPARK
THERE'LL BE FIRE.
DARLING,
LOVE ME TONIGHT.

I WANT YOUR CHARMS,
I WANT YOUR ARMS
ALONE
TO HOLD ME TIGHT.
I WANT YOUR KISS,
THE KISS I MISS
TO BE THE JOY
OF OUR LOVE TONIGHT.

THERE IS BUT ONE MEMORY
HOW GREAT
OUR LOVE SHOULD BE,
GIVE ME A CHANCE
THEN YOU'LL SEE.
DARLING,
LOVE ME TONIGHT.

Lyrics SNEAKY PETE
MAKES YOU JUMP FOR JOY;
SNEAKY PETE
IS THE REAL McCOY.
SNEAKY PETE
IS THE JUICE
THAT SEEMS SO MILD;
AFTER TWO DRINKS
IT DRIVES YOU WILD.
SNEAKY PETE
MAKES YOUR EARS
GO POP;
SNEAKY PETE
HELPS YOU
BLOW YOUR TOP.
SNEAKY PETE
IS THE JIVE
THAT HITS THE SPOT;
AFTER ONE DRINK
YOUR BLOOD RUNS HOT.

IT FEELS SO GOOD
AS IT RUNS AROUND
WAY DOWN IN MY BELLY,
AND THEN IT TURNS AROUND
COMES UP MY SPINE;
MAKES ME FEEL
SO DOGGONE FINE.

SNEAKY PETE
MAKES YOU
LIE TO KIDS;
SNEAKY PETE
MAKES YOU
FLIP YOUR LID.
SNEAKY PETE
IS A DRINK
WELL UNDERSTOOD;
ONE GREAT SWIG,
YOU'RE OUT FOR GOOD!
