You're a little on the thin side
But that's all right
You stood by me, baby
When I didn't think we'd ever see daylight 

Rolled out of California
Like a couple of thieves
Now we're rolling in clover, babe
We didn't read this in no tea leaves 

My fate was sealed before I met you, darling
I was halfway down a shallow grave
So little room for you to catch me falling
Still, you took the little love I saved 

I want to thank you, girl
I want to thank you, girl
I want to thank you, girl
I want to thank you, girl 

It's a matter of opinion
But I think you're fine
As a matter of fact, babe
They couldn't hold a candle to your kind 

If all men are equal
This must be against the law
'Cause I can't help but feeling
I'm one up on my brother when night falls 

'Cause in your arms I get the real love story
No fairy tale from somewhere back in time
In the dawn, you're like a morning glory
Opening up for my sweet light to shine
