Now my room has got two windows,
But the sunshine never comes thru
You know it’s always dark and dreary,
Since I broke off, baby, with you

I live on Lonely Avenue
My little girl wouldn’t say ‘I do’
So I’ll try, I’ll try, I’ll try
Yes I’ll cry, I’ll cry, I’ll cry
(Someone hear me, Lord)
(Hmm, hmm, hmm, hmm, hmmm)
(Hmm, hmm, hmm, hmm, hmmm)

Now my covers, they feel like lead
And my pillow, it feels like stone
Well I’ve tossed and turned so every night
I’m not used to being alone

I live on Lonely Avenue
My little girl wouldn’t say ‘I do’
And I’ll cry, I’ll cry, I’ll cry
Yes, I’ll try, I’ll try, I’ll try
(Someone hear me, Lord),
(Hmm, hmm, hmm, hmm, hmmm)
(Someone hear)
(Hmm, hmm, hmm, hmm, hmmm)
(Someone hear me, Lord),
(Hmm, hmm, hmm, hmm, hmmm)
(Someone hear)
(Hmm, hmm, hmm, hmm, hmmm)

Ooooh, ooh, ooh
Ooooh, ooh, ooh
Ooooooooooooooh, oooooh
Oooooooooooooh, ooooooooh

Stand in love, don’t fall in love!

Now my room has got two windows,
But the sunshine never comes thru
You know it’s always dark and dreary,
Since I broke off, baby, with you

I live on Lonely Avenue
My little girl wouldn’t say ‘I do’
So I’ll cry, I’ll cry, I’ll cry
Yes, I’ll try, I’ll try, I’ll try
(Someone hear me, Lord),
(Hmm, hmm, hmm, hmm, hmmm)
(Hmm, hmm, hmm, hmm, hmmm)
I said I’ll try, I’ll try, I’ll try
And I’ll cry, I’ll cry, I’ll cry
(Someone hear me, Lord),
(Someone hear)

As I would say it again,
Stand in love,
Don’t fall in love!
