I Can't Get Over You, So...

I'm a lonesome-hearted cowboy, and I never go to church
And you're the wondrous woman who just left me in the lurch
It could be said I asked for it, perhaps that I was blind
I told you things that hurt you and I didn't think you'd mind
I miss your hungry touches; I miss your warm caress
I miss the way my hand feels as it slithers up your dress
There's lots I miss about you; it boils down to this, you see:
I can't get over you, so why don't you get under me?

I didn't mean to hurt you; I've been trying to repent
But you went and broke my heart and then you broke my heart and went
I stayed behind and mourned a bit, and that's the way I've stayed
And though I know I've let you down, I think I've been repaid
I can't say what you want to hear; you don't believe a thing
No matter how I shout at you, your ears won't wear my ring
But my arms still fit around you, and my hand can pat your knee
And I can't get over you, so why don't you get under me?

You don't want me for a boyfriend, you don't want me for a mate
But you'll listen when I talk to you, and honey, that's just great
'Cause it means you'll hear my message and you'll understand my plea
I can't get over you, so why don't you get under me?

Toward men who think they know me, I don't show a single sign
That I'm anything but happy that you're anything but mine
And I hint that though I've always claimed I'm not that kind of guy
I must surely have a dozen other lovers on the sly....
And my other lovers tell me I'm a fool to want you back
That I ought to choose another woman up with whom to shack
But who should be that person, there's no two who can agree
And I can't get over you, so why don't you get under me?

Well, now you're all embarrassed and your boyfriend's turning red
It must be what he's been drinking, there's no harm in what I've said
I'm just being awfully friendly, my intentions are most fine
I promised once I'd take you if I had to stand in line
There's no need for much discussion, there's no need to wear a frown
There's no way to turn me off this time, so please don't turn me down
'Cause I've loved you long -- and often! -- and you know you need not flee
I can't get over you, so why don't you get under me?
