1. What Made You Say That

Maybe tonight I'm gonna tell him how I feel
Maybe I'll leave well enough alone
Maybe, just maybe, he'll want to be my baby
What if he's got plans of his own

I'm waiting for the perfect moment
Looking for the perfect phrase
The one I finally choose is simply "I love you"
As the words came out I heard a voice inside me say

Chorus:
What made you say that
Was it the moonlight, was it the starlight in your eyes
What made you say that
Have you been listening to your heart
It's too late now, you don't want to (I won't let you) take it back
'Cause I know love's
What made you say that

I Look up to see his reaction
And a smile slowly spread across his face
He said "What took you so long
That's what I've been waiting on
I thought you'd take forever and a day"

(Repeat Chorus Twice)

Was it the moonlight, was it the starlight in your eyes
What made you say that
Have you been listening to your heart
What made you say that...

2. You Lay A Whole Lot Of Love On Me

I can feel your body tugging gently on my mind
Stirring up a feeling I though I'd never find
Ever since I met you, babe, I've been living in a dream
You lay a whole lot of love on me
A whole lot of love on me

I get warm all over when you get close to me
Then I start to tremble from my head down to my feet
I become your peice of clay to do with what you please
You lay a whole lot of love on me
A whole lot of love on me

You lay a whole lot of love on me
A love I though could never be
Let the whole world fall apart, you're all I'll ever need.
You lay a whole lot of love on me
A whole lot of love on me

You lay a whole lot of love on me
A whole lot of love on me

3. Dance With The One That Brought You 

Well he shines like a penny in a little kid's hand
When he's out on a Saturday night
He's a real go-getter and the best two-stepper you'll see
But when I'm sittin' alone at a table for two
'Cause he's already out on the floor
I think about somethin' that my mama used to say to me

Chorus:
You got to dance with the one that brought you
Stay with the one that want's you
The one who's gonna love you when all of the others go home
Don't let the green grass fool you
Don't let the moon get to you
Dance with the one that brought you and you can't go wrong

He's got his old best buddies and his new best friends
And all the girls give him the eye
He's a good time Charlie and the life of the party tonight
But when I think about another well I don't think twice
'Cause there'll never be another like him
I know he really loves me and I think maybe mama was right

(Repeat Chorus)

You've got to dance with the one that brought you 
and you can't go wrong

4. Still Under The Weather 

My first lesson in losing a love was you
Learning to live with your memory was lesson number two
And I can't lie, baby
I still cry sometimes
But I've come a long way
Towards gettin' you out of my mind

Chorus:
I'm still under the weather
But I'm over the storm
I still miss the shelter
Of your loving arms
But what I thought would kill me 
Has just made me strong
I'm still under the weather
But I'm over the storm

Sometimes your memory still gets the best of me
But that lonely ache in my heart
Ain't as bad as it used to be
And sometimes the way that I'm feelin'
Inside doesn't show
But I know
I'll get over you, I've just got a long way to go

(Repeat Chorus)

I'm still under the weather 
But I'm over the storm

5. God Ain't Gonna Getcha For That 

Hey you, sittin' in the corner
Can't ya hear the jukebox playin'
Everybody's up doing the two-step
And you're not even tappin' your toe

Won't you let a lady buy you a cold brew
Loosen you up a little more than you dare to
Maybe take a ride in my Cadillac
God ain't gonna getcha for that

Chorus:
God ain't gonna getcha for that
He's much too busy with the guys in the black hats
There's nothin' wrong with a man and a woman flirtin' with a honky-tonk moon
God ain't gonna pay no attention
If we're just makin' use of his invention
Come on, baby don't hold back
God ain't gonna getcha for that

I can tell you're the quiet type
Are you new in town or just a little bit shy
Didn't you ever catch me lookin?
I've been eyeing you all night

Won't you let a lady buy you a cold brew
Loosen you up a little more than you dare to
Maybe take a ride in my Cadillac
God ain't gonna getcha for that

(Repeat Chorus Twice)

No...God ain't gonna getcha for that
God ain't gonna getcha for that

6. Got A Hold On Me 

You got a hold on me
You're standing over me
Sometimes I hardly breathe at all
I need a little room
I need a lot of moon
I got to find it soon or I'll fall
Into the emptiness
Into the dark abyss
Too deep to climb the walls
Sometimes I want to flee
But that could never be
You got a hold on me

Chorus:
You got a hold on me
And I'm dancing to your song
You got a hold on me
And it's my heart you're holding on

You got the sweetest smile
You got a certain style
And I can never get enough
Of the way you move
And the way we groove
When it's feeling right to the touch
Then you turn around
And you stomp me down
And you want to call it love
You know it makes me bleed
But I could never leave
You got a hold on me

(Repeat Chorus)

You got a hold on me
I keep dancing to your song
You got a hold on me
And it's my heart you're holding on

7. There Goes The Neighborhood 

The house next door just came up for sale
She's goin' home to mama - she says he can go to hell
The couple down the block is splitting up I hear
And they're the third ones on our street this year

Chorus:
It's just another day in anytown U.S.A.
Somebody's hurt, somebody's blue
And somebody moves away
What little they do to make it work
Don't seem to do much good
When love moves out... there goes the neighborhood

First they take off their wedding bands
They call it quits and call the moving vans
He takes his and she takes hers
And what's left over is left on the curb

(Repeat Chorus Twice)

When love moves out... there goes the neighborhood

8. Forget Me 

Don't go around talkin' to your friends about me
Bury the past, just let it rest in peace
Leave well enough alone
Treat me like someone you've never known

Chorus:
Forget me
Like you forgot to come home at night
Forget me
Like you forgot to hold me tight
(Well) now you're sorry, now you cry
But don't you wipe those tears
'Til your memories run dry
Please forget me

Don't let the lonely days remind you of anything
Oh baby try to erase the fact we had everything
No you can't come back this time
So let me slip right out of your mind

(Repeat Chorus)

'Cause I forgot to forgive and forget
So just pretend we never met

(Repeat Chorus)

Baby, please forget me
Forget me

9. When He Leaves You 

I come here as a friend
Though I don't really know you
I know you're in love with him
And he's made your world brand new

I know you think he loves you 
And he may believe it too
Pour some coffee and I'll tell you 
What you'll soon be going through

Chorus:
When he leaves you
It's gonna more than break your heart
When he leaves you
It's gonna tear your world apart
And you're conna cry a million teardrops
One for every shattered dream
When he leaves you
And comes back home to me

I've known him all thses years
Honey this time's not the first time
I've paid for loving him with tears
And when it's over he'll be mine

I can see I've upset you
Guess I'm a fool to try and help
When it comes hearts and heartache
You got to find out for yourself

(Repeat Chorus)

When he leaves you 
And comes back home to me

10. Crime Of The Century 

I was into bein' out on my own
I could take love or leave it alone
That's how you get when you're hurt to the bone
One too many times
I had this heart of mine locked away
I kept my guard up night an' day
I had enough of the games they play
Out there on the line...

Chorus:
It was the crime of the century
You played Robin Hood an' rescued me 
Ali Baba an' the Forty Thieves
Ain't got nothin' on you
You came on like Jesse James
You stole my heart like you were robbin' trains
I'm gonna lock you up for life with me
It was the crime of the century

You stacked the deck, you didn't gamble at all
You knew exactly how the cards would fall
You bet your heart, but as I recall
I didn't even stand a chance
I bet you had an ace up your sleeve
An' here I thought that you were so naive
You took my hand an' made me believe
In love an' real romance...

(Repeat Chorus)

Bridge:
An' if I live to be a hundred an' one
Honey, don'cha think that it would be fun
To do it all over again...

(Repeat Chorus)

I'm gonna lock you up and throw away the key
It was the crime of the century
It was love in the third degree
It was the crime of the century
