He stumbled through the alley with his long coat on Nothing but a bottle in his hand She sat in her apartment lonesome to the bone Wondering what had happened to her man
[Chorus:] Love, love, love, love Nobody ever understands All the things that go, Between a woman and a man.
When they'd walk down the sidewalk the street would shine With the kind of love no human heart can fake And they vowed to stay together till the end of time Like the couple that stands on top of the wedding cake
If I should live to a ripe old age The only lesson I may ever learn Is to not stand so close to the flame of love Unless you are willing to get burned
All the things that go, Between a woman and a man.
