Lyrics

Well, it never used to be like this
I used to laugh at love
Used to be the one to walk out
When push came to shove
But now I’m writing poetry
And singing sweet, sweet things
And I fly through the air knocking people down
Every time the telephone rings
Could it be, could it be I’m really in love
Yes I do believe that’s so
Don’t that beat all, don’t that beat all

Well, I used be such a nasty guy
And treat my women mean
Walking ‘round with my fists clenched tight
Ready to make a scene
But now I’m sweet as candy
Smile at everyone I see
Help old ladies cross the street
The epitome of gallantry
Could it be, could it be I’m really in love
Yes I do believe it’s so
Don’t that beat all, don’t that beat all

Well, I believe, yes I do
I sincerely believe we were meant to be together
And it seems, yes it do
It certainly seems I’m gonna love that little girl forever
Late, when it’s late
In the midnight hour I need her by my side
She got the love I can’t live without
She keeps me satisfied
Don’t that beat all

Well, if you would have told me a year ago
I’d ever be acting this way
I would have told you man it can’t be so
And I’d bet you all my pay
It’s amazing what the power of love can do
There’s been a metamorphosis in me
And I testify before finding you
I was blind but now I see
That I can love, I can love, I really can love and I can’t deny it’s true
Don’t that beat all, don’t that beat all

Well, don’t that beat all, don’t that beat all
Someone like me is so enthralled
Don’t that beat, don’t beat all
