Everytime I tiurn around you turn up and turn me down
For you've got me buffaloed into your ways of thinking
Seems like all you want to do is hurt me love me awhile and then desert me
But you better drop anchor my ship of love is sinking.

Everytime I'm in beside you the tide of life knot drags you on
And my little boat of love keeps you in sight for awhile but then you're gone
My love starts burning when I think you're turning around to see sick ole me
But you set sails on another trail and I'm a-drowing in a teardrop sea.

Everytime I tiurn around you turn up and turn me down
For you've got me buffaloed into your ways of thinking
It seem like all you want to do is hurt me love me awhile and then desert me
But you better drop anchor my ship of love is sinking.

--- Instrumental ---

Well, I thought I had a chance of being rescued because the word got around to me
That your new captain had strayed of course and your ship had sprung a leak
But the crew that hangs around you fixed it in no time at all
As I cried for help I wasted my breath for you didn't even hear me call.

Everytime I tiurn around you turn up and turn me down
For you've got me buffaloed into your ways of thinking
It seem like all you want to do is hurt me love me awhile and then desert me
But you better drop anchor my ship of love is sinking.

You better drop anchor my ship of love is sinking...
