(robinson, stamford)


Maybe I talk too much,
Maybe I've lost m' touch.
I guess I don't know what's cookin'
'cause I just can't see for lookin'.


Other boys have their chicks,
Two, three, four, five or six.
I don't seem to get a bookin'
'cause I just can't see for lookin'.


I'm kinda crazy,
Like a daisy
Up that well known tree, poor me.
I'm sittin', hopin',
Horoscopin'
Won't some sista take a chance with me?


I've been around the town,
Everyone brings me down.
I give up hope, I'm just a dope.
There ain't no gals for hookin',
I just can't see for lookin'.


~interlude~


I've been around the town,
Everyone brings me down.
I give up hope, I'm just a dope.
There ain't no gals for hookin',
I just can't see for lookin'...




No, just can't see for lookin'...
No, no.
