SOUTHSIDE JOHNNY & THE ASBURY JUKES
"Got To Get You Off My Mind"
(S. Burke/D. Burke/J. B. Moore)

It's a sad story, baby
Every word is true

Got to get you off my mind
I know it's just a matter of time
You found somebody new
And our romance is through

Now listen to me, baby
I'm gonna throw your picture away
You didn't want my love any old way
I know you found somebody new
And our romance is through

And that's why I say, baby
I got to get off my mind
I know it's just a matter of time
Took my love and my money too, baby
And our romance is through

But wait a minute, darling
Some folks love is hard and strong
Baby, that's the kind of love that lingers on
Some folks love, well, it's swift and fast
That's the kind of love that'll never last

We had love that was in between, yes we did
And to me it was like a dream
We had to stay together till June
And a problem brought us gloom

And that's why I say, baby
I got to get off my mind
I know it's just a matter of time
I know you found somebody new
And our romance is through

I thought at the start
That love would always stay
Yes, I did, baby
But now I opened up my eyes
I finally realized
I saw it slipping away

And that's why I say, baby
I got to get you off my mind
'Cause I know it's just a matter of time
You found somebody new
And our romance is new
It's all over, baby
Our romance is through
Goodbye, darling
You broke my heart, baby
Yes you did
