How Could I Let You Get Away  (LP Version)

How Could I Let You Get Away (LP Version)

The Spinners

Like howdy foo
Your tin soldiers, your clowns too
They're all laughing at you
I'm laughing at you too

Like basketball
5 fouls and that was all
The games you really knew, yeah
Why couldn't I beat you

In the middle of the room
Got no time to count my sheep today
How could I let you get away
When I knew I'd need somebody soon (Hoo hoo)
How could I let you get away
When I knew I'd need somebody soon

Like Mother Goose
Winds you up then turns you loose
Block ten was beatin' two
And I can't tell green from blue, no, no

Like cat and mouse
Games of chase instead of house
I get so mad at you
Like parents often do

In the middle of the room
Got no time to count my sheep today (Baby)
How could I let you get away
When I knew I'd need somebody soon (Hoo hoo)
How could I let you get away (Baby)
When I knew I'd need somebody soon

Ooh baby
How could I let you get away, baby
When I knew I'd need somebody soon, yeah
Hey, baby
I didn't count my sheep, I let my woman weep, baby
I knew down inside I'd need somebody soon
Like Mother Goose I done let you loose
And need you, baby, yeah
Ooh-wee, I need somebody soon
Help me now, keep my feet on the ground
My baby
