Darker Shade Of Love

Sid, lemme tell you ’bout the thing that she did
How she tricked me into having a kid
How she tells me I’m her reason to live
Joe, I’m an advocate for taking it slow
But she’s got me by the back of my throat
And she’s pulling me as fast as I go

Wouldn’t you know, couple of days go by I’ve got myself in a whole
I’m sinking so low, cause babe it’s a Darker Shade, a Darker Shade Of Love

Stan, now I know that we has previous plans
And I hope to god that you understand
That she doesn’t like me hanging with my man
Stu, tell me how I’m gonna make it up to you
Would you lemme walk a day in your shoes
Would you lemme take a break from these blues

Wouldn’t you know, couple of days go by I’ve got myself in a whole
I’m sinking so low, cause babe it’s a Darker Shade, a Darker Shade Of Love

Everyone knows where I been stuck lately
Everyone knows she’s having my baby
Everyone knows she’s got me under lock and key
Somebody set me free, somebody turn the key

Joe, lemme tell you couple things that I know
Lemme tell you couple things about Stu
He’s been staying home a lot with the Flu
He’s been saying I should kick it with Stan
But Stan tells me that he’s already got plans
And the worst thing just happened to Sid
No the worst thing just happened to Sid
Sid’s gonna have a kid!

Wouldn’t you know, couple of years go by we’ve got ourselves in a whole
We’re sinking so low, cause babe it’s a Darker Shade, a Darker Shade Of Love
Letting it go, cause baby sometimes you’ve got to know you’re not in control
You’re sinking so low, cause babe it’s a Darker Shade
A Darker Shade of Love, of Love, of Love
Love, of Love, of Love
Love, Luh La Luh Li La Li Luh Li La Love, Love
