PLAY SONG

Julia came over and sangShe's God's gift to all men cause she's as pretty as sin
and just as classy as she can be
With her long dark hair and her long blank stare and her strange
definition of free
She blows into a room with a yell and a zoom
That knocks everyone to the floor
When she arrives better believe she's alive or else
she'll explain it some more

Sweetheart with all of your faults I want to be beside you to night
My heart was locked like a vault 'till you slipped in
It's all right

She says go out with a girl and have a whirl
It's perfectly fine with me I do just that
she leaves me flat claiming that she's got to be free
Then she's gone to LA for a week or a day or maybe up to Santa Cruz
I'm planning a scam yet my hands on my yam
I guess I'm just born to loose

Sweetheart with all of my faults I want to be beside you to night
My heart was locked like a vault 'till you slipped in
It's all right

As I write this verse I just have to curse you're more to me than song
The telephone rang you came over and sang I don't believe the number was wrong
We laugh until four and after that more
Next morning you're colder than ice
I snuggle up close
get punched in the nose I ask you is that very nice

Sweetheart with all of my faults I want to be beside you to night
My heart was locked like a vault 'till you slipped in
It's all right

Years have passed I'm married at last I hardly ever sing this song
To the blonde I made that promise
the brunette flew to Saint Thomas
I hardly even notice she's gone
If she comes back to stay - she shouldn't get in the way
Wife really straightened me out - But she'd leave in a minute
If I were to get in it of that I haven't a doubt

Sweetheart with all of your faults I want to be beside you to night
My heart was locked like a vault 'till you slipped in
It's all right
