Be real sweet to your sweetheart.
Never never make her cry.
'Cause you'll always miss the water when the well goes dry...
Make true love to your lover,
when the moon's high in the sky.
'Cause you'll always miss the water when the well goes dry...
It's tough to be alone and you're love is not there.
It's rough to need your (inaudible) lying in your solitaire...
So, be sweet to your sweetheart,
and she'll never say goodbye.
Then the water in your well will never never go dry...
(Piano Solo)...
Then the water in your well will never, never go dry...
