Carole King – Oh! Neil lyrics

Oh! Neil
I've loved you for so long
I never dreamed you'd put me in a song

I'm Carol
And I live in Tennessee
I never hoped that you'd remember me

Darling, when I saw you at the square dance
My pulse skipped a beat
My heart felt so heavy
Like I had too much to eat

Then you took me walking in the moonlight
It was, oh, so sublime
I had too much molasses
And your lips stuck to mine

Oh! Neil
I'd even give up a month's supply of chewin' tobacky
Just to be known as Mrs. Neil Sedaky

My Grandpappy, he don't like your records
He said if I play them, I will surely die

Lookout, I see him comin' with his shotgun!
There's nothing left to do...
Oh! Neil
I'll surely die for you!

(Shotgun blast)
(Grandpappy) I told that gal not to play them dad-gum Neil Sedaky records!
