His Lips Get In The Way

Lyrics:

Everybody tells me I’m
A fool and I’m just wastin’ time
To love someone who’s not in love with me
Friends all say that I’m a dope
To stay in love when there’s no hope
But I’m a dope who loves him hopelessly

What can I do? Hey, what can I say?
Each time I try to say goodbye
His lips get in the way
Oh yeah, his lips get in the way

He says my love don’t mean a thing
But still he keeps me on a string
I’m just someone he likes to have around
I say I want no more of this

But then he stops me with a kiss
I can’t resist him though he puts me down

What can I do? Hey, what can I say?
Each time I try to say goodbye
His lips get in the way
Oh yeah, his lips get in the way)

Everybody calls me fool
They say "Hey girl, go back to school
And learn the things that every girl should know"
But I guess I’ve got no brains
Because my foolish heart remains
I just can’t break the chains and let him go, no no

What can I do? Hey, what can I say?
Each time I try to say goodbye
His lips get in the way
Oh yeah, his lips get in the way
