Got You On My Mind lyrics

I saw you this morninThough you were nowhere in sight
But I've got to admit
That the thought of you hangs around me
Like a hand on my shoulder, like a fly on my nose

I got you on my mind
I got you on my mind

Well I tried to catch the moon in a butterfly net
But I tripped and it slipped from my hand
And it fell into the sea
But at least I know where the moon is hiding
And just like the moon

I got you on my mind
I got you on my mind

Now some nights I'll be sitting at home
Starin' at some old magazines
And I wonder could somebody tell me
Whatever happened to those back seat plans
Did they drive off with the man?

I tell you, a girl stays single 'cause she don't like men
Or maybe she likes them too much Me, I like them not too much or too little
But times were easy and so was I
Was I in love with you or just in love with love...?

I got you on my mind
I got you on my mind

[Instrumental break]

Got you on my mind
I got you on my mind

There were days when I was feelin' so low
Brought us close as no good times could
There were moments so full of understanding
And I couldn't bear to see them end
Ooo, I'd like to be in love again

I got you on my mind
I got you on my mind
Said, I gotchu, can't seem to get you off my mind
I got you on my mind
Just like a hand on my shoulder, like a fly on my nose
I got you on my mind...
