Song Lyrics

Oh, If I should die tonight

Oh baby, it would be far before my time

I won`t die blue, sugar yeah

`Cause I`ve known you

Oooh, oh, how many eyes

Have seen their dream

Oh, how many arms

Have felt their dream

How many hearts, baby...

Have felt their world stand still

Millions never, they never never

And millions never will baby

They never will

If I should die tonight love

Darlin`, it would be far before my time

I won`t die blue

`Cause I`ve known you

Oooh, oh, I`m thankful that you`re lovin` me

My one desire

Is to love you `til

I`m no longer here and never tire

You always been so good to me

I`m so thankful

Oooh, oh, how many eyes

Have seen their dream

How many arms

Have felt their dream

How many hearts, oh darlin`

Have felt their world stand still

Oh Lord!

Millions never, no, never

And millions never will, sugar

They never will

If I should die tonight, ahhh baby

I just want you to keep this thought in mind

That I would never die blue...

`Cause I`ve known you

Oooh!!
