  • 3. Two Young Lovers
    It was the last day of summer
    It was the first of a new romance
    He walked into her on the corner
    She said, 'I don't dance'
    He said, 'Baby let me teach you'
    She said, 'O.K., when?'
    He said, 'How can I reach you baby
    I'd really like to see you again'
    He picked her up on a Friday night
    He took her for a bite to eat
    His heart was beating and his hands were shaking
    She thought he was sweet
    And he stood on her shoes on the dance floor
    Well, they were doing it cheek to cheek
    And he walked her home and he kissed her
    He was walking on air all week
    Well, they couldn't stand to be apart
    They couldn't leave one another alone
    Her mama used to say, 'It's getting late sweetheart
    It's time that boy went home'
    And upstairs papa kissed mama
    And she gave him a sweet caress
    He said, 'Here's to the two young lovers
    Let's wish 'em every happiness'
    It was the last day of summer
    They came walking home hand in hand
    They went and told her mama
    They showed her the wedding band
    Mama cried and poured the wine
    Papa just said God Bless
    Now, here's to the two young lovers
    Let's wish 'em every happiness
  • 4. If I Had You
    Oo-ooo if I had you, yeah the things that I could do
    Honey, if I had you
    Now I could sing like an angel, fly just like a bird
    Sing you the best love song you ever heard.
    I could be a poet like Mohammed Ali,
    Float like a butterfly, sting just like a, just like a bee.
    Mmm, ooo, if I had you, ahhh the things that I could do
    If I had you.
    Now I'd go get your name tattooed on my chest,
    Well it'd just say 'my baby, my baby, she's the best.'
    I could be your Superman, you could be my Lois Lane
    I could be a Tarzan, you could be my sweet Jane - if you wanted to.
    Mmm if I had you, ah the things that I could do
    If I had you.
