I was the first to hold you in my arms so tight
I was the first to thrill you with a kiss goodnight
I was the first to stir your feelin's new and strange
I was the first and that's the one thing he can't change.

I was the first to take advantage of your youth
I was the first to whisper love words for the truth
I was the first to break your heart in two and yet
I was the first and I know that you can't forget.

He can't stop these feelings that keep runnin' through his mind
Things you couldn't help that happened long before his time
I know he won't admit it but it's true and Lord it hurts
To think that when he's lovin' you, I was the first.

I was the first to kiss your lips and hold your hand
I was the first to ever touch you as a man
I was the first to take your innocence then run
I was your first; I took a girl and made a woman.

We've already done the things that he's got on his mind
Things you couldn't help that happened long before his time
I know he won't admit it but it's true and Lord it hurts
To think that when he's lovin' you, I was the first.

I know he won't admit it but it's true and Lord it hurts
To think that when he's lovin' you, I was the first
Sometimes he wishes he was me 'cause I was the first
Lord, I'd give anything if I had only been the last...
