So now I've been forced to give advice
On a matter in which now I've become involved
Should I stop my thoughts and close my eyes
Play the lover's role in the beggar's disguise
And beg God to give me
Solomon's wisdom
Knowing that I
Loved you twice as well as he could
Knowing that I
Loved you twice as well as he could

Sweet Georgia Brown
Ran into a love affair without even looking down
You said your conscious ails you
You said your mind's not clear
Wrap you up in a summer's day
Take your mind out of here
Take your mind straight out of here, la la la
Knowing that I
Loved you twice as well as he could
Knowing that I
Loved you twice as well as he could

Well I guess that's just the way it goes
Thought I had you trapped up darling
Thought I had you wrapped around my finger, baby
la la la la, la la la la
I was wrong, baby, now I was wrong
Knowing that I
Loved you twice as well as he could
Knowing that I
Loved you twice as well as he could

Slow down, and give it up to me
Slow down when you talk to me baby
Slow down, and you give it up to me now
You know that you're the one I want
Slow down, and give it up to me
Slow down when you talk to me baby
Slow down, and give it up to me now
Cause you know you're the one I want
You're the one I want

Slow down, and give it up to me
Slow down when you talk to me baby
Slow down, and give it up to me now
You know that you're the one I want
You're the one I want

    General CommentI love this song. It's one of the few songs that I can listen to and never tire of. It seems clear to me that it's a guy apostrophizing to somone he loves. He has been asked to give this girl advice on another guy. Now, the singer cannot decide what to say, knowing that it is not this new guy who belongs with her, but himself.

    General CommentYeah, that's pretty obviously what it's about, I agree.

    Wanted to correct some lyrics. It's supposed to be "Knowing that I COULD love you twice as well as he could"
