I thought I had seen pretty girls in my time
But that was before I met you
I never saw one that I wanted for mine
That was before I met you.

I thought I was swinging the world by the tail
I thought I could never be blue
I thought I'd been kissed and I thought I'd been loved
But that was before I met you.

--- Instrumental ---

I wanted to ramble and always be free
But that was before I met you
I said that no woman could ever hold me
But that was before I met you.

I thought I was swinging the world by the tail
I thought I could never be blue
I thought I'd been kissed and I thought I'd been loved
But that was before I met you.

--- Instrumental ---

They tell me I must reap just what I have sown
But darling I hope it's not true
For once I made plans about living alone
But that was before I met you

I thought I was swinging the world by the tail
I thought I could never be blue
I thought I'd been kissed and I thought I'd been loved
But that was before I met you.

That was before I met you...
