I Love You Better - Lyrics by Monkees


Lyrics
by Jeff Barry & Andy Kim
I once went with a belly dancer,(
Lum, doo-dee, ahh-dee, day)
Once around I didn't stand a chance(
Lum, doo-dee, ahh-dee, day) But, I, I, I love you better, I, I, I love you better.
Then I went with a gospel singer,(
Lum, doo-dee, ahh-dee, day)
She tried to wrap me around her finger, now,(
Lum, doo-dee, ahh-dee, day)
But, I say I, I, I love you better, I, I, I love you better.I, I, I,(
Lum, doo-dee, ahh-dee, day)I, I, I,(
Lum, doo-dee, ahh-dee, day)I once went with a history teacher,(
Lum, doo-dee, ahh-dee, day)I really tried but I couldn't reach her,(
Lum, doo-dee, ahh-dee, day)
Whoa, I, I, I love you better, I, I, I love you better. SOLO
Well, let me tell you now, I, I, I love you better, I, I, I love you better.I, I, I,(
Lum, doo-dee, ahh-dee, day)I, I, I,(
Lum, doo-dee, ahh-dee, day)
There were some that I can't remember,(
Lum, doo-dee, ahh-dee, day)I think I went with Miss November,(
Lum, doo-dee, ahh-dee, day)
But, I say I, I, I love you better, I, I, I love you better. I, I, I love you better, I, I, I love you better, I, I, I love you better, I, I, I love you better, I, I, I love you better, I, I, I love you better.fade out...
