One two, one two three

Well, I went and gave away my TV
Told the man, "Cut off the phone"
I put an ad in the paper, baby, gonna sell everything I own
Done everything in the world I know, to try to make it through
But there's just no getting over you

Well, I went and bought myself a new straw hat
One eye pokin' under the brim, I bought myself a little seaside shack
In case I might just want to swim
Done everything I know in the world to try to shake these blues
But there's just no getting over you

Well, I try and try but honey it ain't no use
Cry and cry, I just can't turn you loose
Why oh why, can't I get you off my mind?
You got that hook so far in baby, I gotta get you off my line

Well, I got some transcendental meditation, baby
And I'm taking up Japanese, I signed up at the cooking school
I'm going to pick up on some hard cuisine
Done everything in the world I know, to try to make it through
But there's just no getting over you

Honey I, I tried and I tried baby it ain't no use
Cried and I cried but I just can't turn you loose
Why oh, why can't I get you off my mind?
Honey, you got that hook so far in, I just got to get you off my line
Oh, I have much and I'm a fool for you baby, lay back in, stand on

Now listen to this [Incomprehensible]
You know the way you do, honey

Well, I just can't make it over, can't seem to make it baby
No matter what I say or do baby, I can't make it over, ooh
Well, there's just no getting over you, that's a truth
