ALLEN TOUSSAINT lyrics - Fingers And Toes

ALLEN TOUSSAINT
"Fingers And Toes"
(Allen Toussaint)

What more is there to say
After I've said I'm sorry
What more is there to say
I know that I was wrong

So I've made mistakes
Girl, for goodness sake
You know I've been more good than bad
So why don't you, love
Before you start a new love
Try and count the good times
We've had, we've had, we've had

I'll be you run out of finger and toes
Before you run out of the flowers I sent you
I'll be you run out of finger and toes
Before you run out of the hours I've spent
Lovin' you, huggin' you, kissin' you and then, honey
When you get tired of countin'
Darling, take me back again

What more is there to say
Sometimes love can be so cold
Oh baby, baby
You can't see the forest for the trees
But understanding is gold

Oh, no one knows better than you
Just what you want to do
But count the good 'long with the bad
And I'm sure that you, love
Would give a thought or two, love
And try and count the good times
We've had, we've had, we've had, we've had

I'll be you run out of finger and toes
Before you run out of the night on the town
I'll be you run out of finger and toes
Before you run out of the joy that I've found
Lovin' you, huggin' you, kissin' you and then, honey
When you get tired of countin'
Darling, take me back again

How can we just end
Something that has been
So much more good than bad
So why not try, love
Before you let it die, love
Try and count the good times
We've had, we've had and..

I'll be you run out of finger and toes
Before you run out of the flowers I sent you
I'll be you run out of finger and toes
Before you run out of the hours I've spent
Lovin' you, huggin' you, kissin' you and then, honey
When you get tired of countin'
Darling, take me back again
