How Many Times?

Come on baby let it all out
All we hear about are selfish schemes
The dreams that don’t work out
You can’t keep down what’s underneath now
You may never get over
You may never get over
You may never get over it

How many times must I tell you you’re the one?
I’ve made up my mind
Have my notebooks confiscated
Look for the lines
Strip my pages back to front
There’s nothing to find
There’s not much to say
Let’s talk about the weather

All your livelong on the railroad
And all that track you laid
Never paid for the years of your life
You gave away
You broke your back on somebody else’s load
And you never get over
And you never get over
And you never get over it
You’re a little bit older
And a little bit older
And you’re getting too old for this

How many times must I tell you you’re the one?
I’ve made up my mind
Don’t matter what your friends are saying
Look at the sky at the stars and at the sun
No reasoning why
There’s not much to say
Let’s talk about the weather

Keep your baby keep your baby
Keep it till it drives you crazy
On and on and on and on is not enough for you
You don’t know what you’re missing
Till you stop look and listen
On and on and on and on it breaks my heart in two
But how many times?
How many times?
I’ve mind up my mind
So how many times?

How many times must I tell you you’re one?
I’ve made up mind
