ALLEN TOUSSAINT lyrics - She Once Belonged To Me

ALLEN TOUSSAINT
"She Once Belonged To Me"
(Allen Toussaint)

Don't you talk about the lady
Don't you talk about her, please
Don't you talk about the lady
She once belonged to me

Don't you talk about the woman, oh no
She's got qualities you can't see
Don't you talk about the lady
She once belonged to me

(She's not just another woman)
No, no, no, she almost beared my child
Yes, she did
(She's not just another woman) No no
But she only stayed a little while

Just like the sunshine in the mornin'
She lightens up my day
Even though we both knew
She was just passin' through
Lord, how I tried to make her stay

(She's not just another woman)
No, no, no, she almost beared my child
Yes, she did
(She's not just another woman) No no
But she only stayed a little while

(Talk about the pain)
(Talk about the same)
Please don't talk about the lady
She once belonged to me

Can't you see now
(Talk about the hate)
(Talk about the weight)
But please don't say nothin'
'Bout the woman
She's got qualities you can't see
Yes, sirree now
