Just Mostly Having You Mostly Just Ain't Right
 
Lyrics
VERSE
First there's the pleasure, but then there's the pain
Love beyond measure, but will I see you again?
I know you want to stay, and I see the ball and chain
But no matter the pleasure, can I take all this pain?

CHORUS
Just mostly havin' you mostly just ain't right
You're a beautiful sight; you're my lover delight
But I go a little crazy when we turn on the light
'Cause I know you're gonna move off into the night
Just mostly havin' you mostly just ain't right

VERSE
It's not like I didn't know when all this began
That neither one of us had a very good plan
I've tried to do the very best I can
But there seems little difference between the fire and the pan

Repeat CHORUS

BRIDGE
I know I have most of you; the meaningful part
But that just won't do; I need more than your heart
You give me more pleasure than I thought I'd ever know
You're my Earthly treasure; would I be a fool to let you go?

Repeat CHORUS

TAG
Just mostly havin' you mostly just ain't right
