And all through the night his eyes had a light That burned very bright and she hoped His words weren't well read lines A little I'll at ease she whispered "Baby, please" Treat me gently in the morning Take my heart but stay with me Treat me gently in the morning, please Her mamma said, "Silly girl you should marry him or leave He'll only make you grieve when he decides it's over Wake up child" But the years fell away, they grew closer they found Though they had their ups and downs just like lovers do Still she'd say, "It's okay to fight, when were alone late at night I'll always say
Treat me gently in the morning Take my heart but stay with me Treat me gently in the morning, please

Treat me gently in the morning I can't live another night Treat me gently in the morning I'll be on that plane tonight
