"More Than You Deserve" as written by and Bart/teeuwe Van Veen....
From the very first moment I saw you, I knew our love would be so strong
And the very first moment I kissed you, I knew our joy would last so long
And then I saw you making love to my best friend, I didn't know whatever to say
I saw you making love to my best friend
So I looked him right in his eyes and I said - listen boy

[Chorus:]

Won't you take some more, it's what you came for
And don't mind me, I won't throw you no curves
Have yourself a ball with my good woman
Won't you take some more boy, it's more than you deserve
Won't you take some more boy, it's more than you deserve

When I saw you hanging round the truck stop, shining like an angel in the night
And when I saw you crying like a baby, I knew you'd have to be my wife

Then I saw you making love to my best friend, I didn't know whatever to say
I saw you making love to my best friend
So I looked him right in his eyes and I said - listen boy

Now I think I'm gonna have to leave you
Because I'm feeling much too weak to share
And the pie, oh it's cut in too many pieces
The flavor that I crave is no longer there

Then I saw you making love to two of my best friends
I didn't know whatever to say
I saw you making love to a group of my best friends
So I looked them right in their eyes and I said - listen here, group

Won't you take some more boys, it's more than you deserve

    General Commenti remember i was quite young when i first heard this one (my older siblings + cousins were grand listeners)

    i remember i loved singin along but i was well embarrassed about the 'making love' lyrics :)
