Livingston Taylor – Oh Loretta lyrics

Here is a seven nine chord
Here is the melody
Here's the place for a touch of bass
A rhythm light and free
Here come the lyrics
Where she falls so easily
Oooh Loretta, why don't you love me?

Here is my favorite movie
Blockbuster Video
Sleepless in Seattle
How could Tom Hanks know
That the perfect one was waiting
Precious harmony
Oooh Loretta, why don't you love me?

Life is illusion
Why did I have to fall
For someone to whom
I simple don't exist at all?
Here is the body from Gold's Gym
It's pretty straight and strong
The teeth are great,
The hair's not grey,
Ok it's mainly gone.
My eyes are twenty/twenty
But they cannot see.
Oh Loretta, why don't you love me?
