L-O-V-E

L-O-V-E by Amy Swanson (c) May, 1998 (dedicated to every woman who's ever had one of these!) Hey now Mr. Satin Sheets, you think you're so fine... wouldn't give you the time of day, here's the reason why: You're a womanizer, pulverizer, think you're so sly, but let me tell you something honey - your heart is like ice. You try so hard to hide, but it's easy to see, there's one little word you need to learn... it's L-O-V-E. Now I don't care how sweet you talk, but honey it's your walk that would make me come around, and give you my heart, but lately, what I'm seein' just ain't lookin' too good... it's evident to me, that your soul is like wood. You think you've got my number, but you still need the dime; gotta know for certain boy, you'll never be mine. You try so hard to hide, but it's easy to see, there's one little word you need to learn... it's L-O-V-E. Now, I'll admit, you had me in circles for a little while, and all it took, was just one look, and a sweet... smile. But, baby, I've been down this road before; I took the scenic route... but I'm not taking it anymore! So baby... take your velvet talk and groovy lines too.... I ain't playin' anymore, cause it ain't cool. Said you'd give me the world, all I got was a lie - You gotta know, there's just some things that money don't buy. I was looking for love, but instead I found you It's my opinion honey, you don't have a clue. You try so hard to hide, but it's easy to see, there's one little word you need to learn... it's L-O-V-E. Yeah, you'll be cryin' baby, that's easy to see til you learn about that little word, L-O-V-E. go on back to school, learn a few things don't come back to me.
