woke up late again this morning
cause I was late again last night
in the mood that I was born in
and my skin was feeling tight

I took a short cut to the city
had myself a drink or two
I got over feeling shaky
but I'm still not over you

God I might as well forget you • you ain't never coming true
seems like ever since I met you I've been getting over you

I don't crave no conversation
I don't need no sympathy
all I want is my old lady
that old lady wanting me

so take me any way you want me
I'll take you any way I can
I don't want your sack of candy
just some sweetness now and then

I got to get myself together with someone who wants some too
maybe I can learn to love her while I'm getting over you
