A Little Loving

She’d say, ‘find me a man who’ll be gentle and faithful'
I’d say, ‘Arthur’s a man who’d embrace anyone with your potential’
And with a laughing smile she gleamed; she was my leading lady
Who had grace across the stage

She’d say ‘I’m not a girl who’ll be sinful or easy’
I’d say, ‘Well I’m not a man who would hold anyone who is deceiving’
And there’s the painted scenery; it was not complicated
But it’s not always what you say, it’s what you mean

You, you know it’s true, you’re my best friend and I love you
Forever we will be as one, and you I know that I won’t go back on word

But four months on you tell me that
You’re a misbehaving Cheshire cat
Maneuvering around, and sneaking about
And you take me out and say it straight
That you never loved me anyway
And what’s for dessert, oh I can’t decide

Now I, I can’t believe, you’d cut me like I wouldn’t bleed
And this ain't the place to break our lives, does this dinner come without the play?

So all these years I’ve spent with you
There was another, you were with two
A choice that was made, before the first date
And like a boat in violent seas
I’m pumping water; facing fear
For what should I do, go back to the drought?
If I took a chance, how would it turn out

And I will always fall for one whose instinct tells them not to run from me, oh
Hmmm….hmmmm….

I can still recall our first meeting
Common interests running through the ceiling
What ya got in store there?
What ya hiding from me?
And why are your hands shaking?
How long have you been watching me?

And I remember walking through the city
Knocking arms and humming, ‘I Feel Pretty’
Won’t you come and dance please
Won’t you come and sing with me
What’s that look you giving
It says send a little loving to me, oh


Send a little loving on this way, baby
Send a little loving my way
Send a little loving on this way, baby
Let it all come my way

Send a little loving on this way, baby
Send a little loving my way
Send a little loving on this way, baby
Let it all come my way

Won’t you come and dance please
Won’t you come and sing with me
What’s that look you giving
It says send a little loving to me, oh

She said, ‘find me a man who’ll be gentle and faithful'
I said, ‘Well Arthur’s a man who’d embrace anyone with your potential’
And that’s the painted scenery; it was not complicated
But it’s not always what you say, it’s what you mean
