You ask me to give up the hand of the girl I love 
You tell me I'm not the man she's worthy of 
But who are you to tell her who to love
That's up to her, yes and the Lord above 
You better move on 

Well I know you can buy her fancy clothes and a diamond rings 
I believe she'd be happy with me without those things 
Still you beg me to set her free 
But my friend that will never be 
You better move on 

I can't blame you for loving her
But can't you understand man, she's my girl
And I, I, I, I'm never gonna let her go 
'Cause I, I, I, I love her so 

Well let me tell you how 

I think you better go now, I'm getting mighty mad 
You ask me to give up the only love that I've ever had 
Maybe I would, oh but I love her so 
I'm never gonna let her go 

You better move on

You better move on

You better move on

They enjoyed considerable popularity in many countries, although they did not achieve major US chart success until 1966. They had 30 charting singles on the UK Singles Chart, and 21 on the Billboard Hot 100, with songs including, "He Ain't Heavy, He's My Brother", "Carrie Anne", "Long Cool Woman in a Black Dress" and "The Air That I Breathe". more »
