Song title: I remember
I remember the first time saw you
Cause I thought to myself I said
Mmmmm that woman sure looks good
And I went home and I prayed to the Lord each night
I said "Oh Jesus", I told him I had to, I had to have you
Because I thought that you would love me like I'd want my baby to
Yes and I remember
The first time I loved you, sure felt true
And I remember ohhhhhh
Yes I, yes I yes I do
Yes I do
And I remember
The first time I touched you
Because the stars fell from the sky
And they glowed down on the earth like a giant firefly
And thats when I knew
Yeah thats when I knew
I said thats, thats when I knew
That it had to, oh baby, it had to be you
Thats when I knew, thats when I knew
Thats when I knew it had to be you
There was just no other, that I needed you for my lover
Thats when, thats when I knew
Oh thats when I knew
Baby thats, thats when I knew
I said thats when I knew
Because I remember
Oh so true
Yes I, yes I love you
Oh baby I ???
Yes I do
Yes I do mama
The first time that you left me
Because I thought that you were fooling when you said you were gonna go
Just like you fooled me, fooled me so many times before
Cause you know we got along alright for a few years
But then just things started happening and it wasn't the same no more
No it just wasn't the same no more
And you have gone off so many times before
But you always came back
And I remember when you went out and you slammed the door once
Yes I remember that was the first time
You went out and you slammed the door
Oh yeah, and I thought you were fooling, yeah and I thought you were fooling
And you went out and slammed the door a second time
But you came back, oh you came back yes you did
And you went out and I heard that door slam three times
But you came back to me, and I remember the fourth time you went out
And this time it hurt
Oh baby, oh darling, don't do it
But you came back, but it was the fifth time that you went out, you went out the door went
Oh stop it, oh stop it
And you came back
And the days went by, and the months went by
And I just stayed up in my room
I just hung out in my room, playing the records and the radio
Just watching tv all the time by myself
And then the year gone by and I saw you
Walking downtown, I saw you, I saw you walking down the street
Oh you looked so good you were boppin' down the street
She had here hair all dolled up, and she had that little dog
She had that dog on that leash, and her friends were telling her
You got that boy on a leash, you got that boy on a leash
She had that little dog that she always had, walking down the street
She was boppin down the street to the beat of the band
And her friends say you got that boy on a leash, you got that boy on a leash
And I said "hiya baby how ya doing", and she said "Oh I been fine"
And I said "yeah you look good, whats been happening"
She said "oh not too much, I just been going to work, I got a little job
And I got a good man who says he loves me"
And then I said "baby, oh baby sweet baby, won't you come back to me?"
And she said "no I just can't make it"
I said "darling won't you come back to me I've been missing you"
And she said "no I just can't take it"
I said "darling won't you come back to me because I need you"
And she said "no honey I just can't stand it again"
I said "but darling I want you"
She said "no Bill I just can't make it"
I said "well honey I need you"
And she said "no, I just can't make it"
I said "but darling I want you I feel so bad"
She said "no, I just can't make it"
I said "Darling I love you, and you said it would be alright, you said it was going to be alright"
"Oh darling I love you won't you come on home"
She said "I'm coming home"
She's coming home, she's coming home
She's coming home, shes coming home, babys coming home
Baby's coming home
And I remember the first time I loved you
It was so damn true
Ohhh I remember your lovin'
Yes I, yes I do
Yes I, yes I
Yes I do
Yes I do girl
Yes I do
Yes I really do girl
Because the way, the way you love me sometimes is just so frightening
Can't you see we go together mama, just like thunder and just like lightning
