Cross My Heart And Hope To Die - Lyrics by Elvis Presley

(words & music by wayne - weisman)I can explain about last night
Though things didn't look just right
Please believe me there was nothing wrong
I thought about you baby all night long
Cross my heart, I hope to die
Well I wouldn't tell you no lie, mmm
Talk about a piece of rotten luck
You do a friend a favor and you wind up stuck
She couldn't hold a candle to you, no siree
Very hard to handle like a model t
Cross my heart, I hope to die
Well I wouldn't tell you no lie
Please believe me when I say
Wild horses couldn't drag me away
From you ’cause I don't have to look too hard
To see what I've got in my own back yard
So please forgive me and forget
Don't say my alloy's all wet (? )I miss those kisses from your honeycomb
This humble bumble bee just wants to fly back home
Cross my heart, I hope to die
Well I wouldn't tell you no lie
I wouldn't tell you no lie
No no no no no no
I wouldn't tell you no lie
