The Shirelles – His Lips Get In The Way lyrics

Everybody tells me I'm
A fool & I'm just wastin' time
To love someone who's not in love with me
Friends all say that I'm a dope
To stay in love when there's no hope
But I'm a dope who loves him hopelessly

What can I do? Hey, what can I say?
Each time I try to say goodbye
His lips get in the way
Oh yeah, his lips get in the way

He says my love don't mean a thing
But still he keeps me on a string
I'm just someone he likes to have around
I say I want no more of this
But then he stops me with a kiss
I can't resist him though he puts me down


Everybody calls me fool
They say "Hey girl, go back to school
& learn the things that every girl should know"
But I guess I've got no brains
Because my foolish heart remains
I just can't break the chains & let him go, no no


(repeat title & fade)
