The Women I Love

by Alex McMurray Velvety Pod Music (BMI)

She will walk into a room and not a head will turn

She will linger at the table and I'm beginning to feel the burn

She will give her hair a toss so's to hide that so so so so face

She's the woman I love but o me she's the only woman in the place

She will stroll her strange sashay and nobody gives a damn

She will strut her ungainly plie she dug up in a garbage can

And I will give the concierge a little something maybe get some sorta sign

That the woman I love can take her place in the V.I.P. line


Oh the woman I love ain't nothing special

but that's just fine with me

Because she's the only one who'll have me

And though the other guys might scorn her

In my dreams I adorn her

I got it so bad it makes me sick

She's the woman I love


If you could see us with our clothes off, man, it ain't nothing nice

They say that love's a gamble and I'm willing to roll the dice

Now we're leaving the casino

Step out into that fresh cool clean Biloxi air

When I'm with the woman I love I could be just about anywhere


Oh the woman I love ain't nothing special...


Life is long the kids are gone the dog is dead

the house is just about paid off goddammit

And brown have grown the color of our many sins

Sometimes I still can't understand it

And someday soon she's gonna go I know and it might just be tomorrow

But you can bet your last dollar my reiend where she goes I'm gonna follow
