I never met a lady
quite as pretty as Melody Dean
and when I laid my head
down on her heart
It beated out your name
and so I had to listen
to her heartbeat
several hundred times
and she was very nice about it,
held my hand and didn't mind

I never put my foot in the
same river twice
I don't like getting wet
You take the good
you take the bad
you take it all
and that is all you get
The fact is you would rather
I be lonely in a bathtub
with a book
The fact is you would rather
I sat pining on our pictures
from New York
New York, New York, New York

But I get torn to pieces
for the stupidest reasons
All I want's to love the one I'm with
just like the song says

I don't like picking sides
I don't like sticking
my cherona in a box
I like to spread her out on
different crackers yeah
I like the way she looks
and when I go to bed
at night with Melody
undressing in my head
to get to sleep you know that
I would rather be
undressing you instead
instead, instead, instead

I never met a lady
quite as pretty as Melody Dean
and even though I know you are a little
bit angry with me
You know that it is you I love
and you I want to get me off
But you can only do that
when you're here
and right now you are not

I never cross the
continental divide
without thinking about you
I am a tree that's carved up
with her name
She is a warrior tattoo
and the fact is, you're selective
about what you can
remember for a start
The fact is you're just jealous
as all get out
We can do it in the dark,
in the dark, in the dark, in the dark

But I get torn to pieces
for the stupidest reasons
All I want's to love the one
I'm with like Stephen Stills says

I never met a lady
quite as pretty as Melody Dean
and even though I know you are a little
bit angry with me
You know that it is you I love
and you I want to get me off
But you can only do that
when you're here
and right now you are not
