TONY ORLANDO AND DAWN lyrics - She Can't Hold A Candle To You

TONY ORLANDO AND DAWN
"She Can't Hold A Candle To You"

She can't hold a candle to you
I don't want to hurt her
But baby it's true
I thought that I loved her
But I guess I was wrong
I ain't gonna string her along

She's pretty as a picture
And sweeter than a song
And any other man would love her so
She puts her little arms around me
Cute as anyone I know

Now, I don't want to hurt her
Break her little heart
And I don't want to give the kid aloan
She's all dressed up to go dancing
But I don't feel like romancing
Oh she tried to light a fire
But now it's turning blue
'Cause she can't hold a candle to you

Met you on a Friday
On 42nd street
As I was out there shopping for rings
I got a look at you and baby
My little heart began to sing

I knew that I had loved her
Since time began to tick
And in the nick of time you came along
Now for me comes the hard part
'Cause I can't marry my sweetheart
Oh she tried to light a fire
But now it's turning blue
'Cause she can't hold a candle to you
She can't hold a candle to you
