Used to lead quiet existence,
Always had my peace of mind,
Kept Old Man Trouble at a distance,
My days were silver lined!
Right on top of the world I sat,
But look at me now, I don't know where I'm at!

I was doing alright,
Nothing but rainbows in my sky,
I was doing alright
Till you came by!

Had no cause to complain,
Life was as sweet as apple pie,
Never noticed the rain
Till you came by!

But now, whenever you're away,
Can't sleep nights and I suffer all the day;
I just sit and wonder
If love isn't one big blunder!

But when you're holding me tight,
Tingling all through, I feel somehow
I was doing alright,
But I'm doing better than ever now!

Oh, I was doin' alright,
Nothin' but rainbows in my sky,
I was doin' alright
Till you came by!

I had no cause to complain,
Life was as sweet as apple pie,
Never noticed the rain
Till you came by!

But now, whenever you're away,
Can't sleep nights and I suffer all the day;
I just sit and wonder
If love isn't one big blunder!

Johnny, when you're holdin' me tight,
Oh, tingling all through, I feel somehow
I was doin' alright,
But I'm doing better than ever now!
