Otis Redding – New Year's Resolution lyrics

[O:] I hope it's not too late
Just to say that I'm sorry, honey
All I want to do
Is just finish what we started, baby
[O C:] Let's turn over a new leave
And baby let's make promises
That we can keep
And call it a new year's resolution, hmmm
[C:] Oh, I'm a woman
And woman makes mistakes too
But will you, will you forget the changes
That I put you through
[O C:] Oh, let's try it again
Just you and me
And, baby, let's see how happy honey, yeah
That we can be
And call it a new year's resolution, yeah, yeah, yeah
[O:] Many times we had our ups and downs
[C:] And times you needed me I couldn't be found
[O:] I'm sorry
[C:] And I'm sorry too
[O:] I'll never, never do it again, no, no, no
So baby before we fall out
Let's fall on in, yeah, yeah
[C:] Oh, and we're gonna try harder
Not to hurt each other again, oh
[O C:] Love me baby, huh
Week after week
And baby let's make promises
That we can keep
And call it a new year's resolution, yeah, oh
[O:] I know we can do it Carla
[C:] I'm gonna keep my promises
[O:] I'm gonna hold on that we can do it, baby
[C:] Oh, it's not too late
[O:] You're gonna love me
Nobody else
[C:] Oh Otis let's finish what we started
[O:] Talk no mean...
