by Commodores

The Commodores is an American funk/soul band of the 1970s and 1980s. The members of the group met as mostly freshmen at Tuskegee Institute (now Tuskegee University) in 1968, and signed with Motown in November 1972, having first caught the public eye opening for The Jackson 5 while on tour.

Hey Lucy why don't you come and settle down 
I hear you're the baddest girl this side of town 
Got a little money that I wanna spend 
If you'll be my friend 
For just a little while 

First summer you sailed on down to New Orleans 
I was a victor, you were a Cajun queen 
You had many fellas with lots of style 
And you drove them wild 
Oh little Lucy I had to be with you 

Traveled around the country 
Oh and I made my way 
I never once forgot what I felt that day 
Now I think I'm ready to play my hand 
I wanna be your man which is hard to do 
Oh Lucy I'm so in love with you 

I've been a wandering man for such a long time 
Now I know just where I'm going 
Oh how I need you to stand by my side 
Don't you go away 
Cause I'm so in love with you 

I've been searchin' for you Lucy for such a long time 
Now I wanna let you know what I have on my mind 
You've been around a lonely man 
A lonely man 
I've been a lonely man 
I don't want to live my life without you 
There were times when I tried to get you off my mind girl 
You're the girl of my dreams 
Oh you're the girl of my dreams 
(Ahh my Lucy) 
So many lonely nights I need you girl 
(Ahh my Lucy)
