Make Up In Love (LP Version)

Make Up In Love (LP Version)

Doug Stone

Bobby was a beautiful girl from a small town in a great big world.
Her daddy owned the corner store off of 7th Avenue.
Danny-Jo just turned nineteen, cigarettes rolled under his sleeve,
His leather jacket and his faded jeans and a bad attitude.
But it's hard to be tough,
When you're falling in love.

He said: "I know I'm down on my knees,
"But I wanna be the one, your only one.
"I'm beggin' you please,
"And I know that I don't have that much,
"But for whatever I don't have,
"I'll make up in love."

Her daddy was a simple man, he raised Bobby with a real stern hand.
Said he never would understand just what she saw in him.
After workin' at the store all day bringin' in an honest day's pay,
Man you shoulda seen his face when Danny-Jo walked in,
Sayin': "Please understand,"
With a ring in his hand.

He said: "I know I'm down on my knees,
"But I wanna be the one, your only one.
"I'm beggin' you please,
"And I know that I don't have that much,
"But for whatever I don't have,
"I'll make up in love."

Now he looks back and smiles,
At how they walked down the aisle.
Twenty years have gone by,
He remembers it still.
How she bid his will with a look in her eyes:
Now he knows she was right.

When she said: "Daddy, I'm down on my knees,
"But I wanna be the one, his only one.
"I'm beggin' you please,
"And I know that he don't have that much,
"But for whatever we don't have,
"We'll make up in love."

And for whatever they don't have,
They make up in love
