Susan wants to take me To a party over yonder Susan wants to take me To her heart It's a arm and tender place there, Do you know Susan, I've been living here In this fortress And it's filled with armor And sometimes celebrations Lose their charm
Susan do you mind, Sometimes I'm restless Rolling on the floor in pain and woe After all the precious gifts you Will gladly give to me, girl I may blindly lock and bolt the door
Baby, sweet baby I'll truly love you through my years Well it's just that sometimes By midnight light I'm frightened by my fears But if you could just hold me, Warm me, girl The way you did today And tenderly anoint my eyes Then I may see the way Susan, baby, take me to that party 'Way over yonder
Tell me, Susan, do you mind Come on, Susan, take the time Tell me, Susan, do you mind If I've been blind a long time? I been blind a long time
Sometimes, see, if you're Not careful A little hurt, pain in your heart Will make you blind Blind to the real thing, once It comes along Honey, can you wait, baby Can you wait for me, till I Get this thing together? I been blind, I been blin, Blind a long time Sweet Susan, take the time, girl
Susan, can you understand If I say I love you, baby Tell me, Susan, mama, Do you mind? Girl, I been blind.
