or
Martha & the Vandellas

It's my birthday, and he forgot again
Every time we date, he's always late
All the abuses and excuses, I've made up my mind
Gonna tell him this time we're through
But everything I plan to say
Just seems to fade away
Every time I see his face
My eyes light up, sparks start to flyin'
Like a live wire, real live wire
Just like a bolt of lightnin', it sets my soul on fire

Sweet kisses are his alibi
And that's why, that's where my weakness lies
Though I plan and rehearse the things I want to say
The words never never come my way, 'cause
'Cause everything I plan to say
Just seems to fade away
Every time I see his face
My eyes light up, sparks start to flyin'
Like a live wire

Like a bolt of lightnin', it sets my soul on fire
Just like a live wire, real live wire
A bolt of lightnin', oh yeah, sets my soul on fire
Like a live wire, real live wire
