“I Love You Better”

Lyrics

I once went with a belly dancer (Lum do dee ally day)
Once around, I didn’t stand a chance, ah (Lum do dee ally day)

But I, I, I love you better
I, I, I love you better

Then I went with a gospel singer (Lum do dee ally day)
She tried to wrap me around her finger now (Lum do dee ally day)

But I said I, I, I love you better
I, I, I love you better

Ha, ha, ha (Lum do dee ally day)
Ha, ha, ha (Lum do dee ally day)

I once went with a history teacher (Lum do dee ally day)
I really tried, but I couldn’t reach her (Lum do dee ally day)

Whoa, I, I, I love you better
I, I, I love you better

[break]

Well, let me tell you now, I, I, I love you better
I, I, I love you better

Ha, ha, ha (Lum do dee ally day)
Whoa, ha, ha, ha (Lum do dee ally day)

There were some that I can’t remember (Lum do dee ally day)
I think I went with Miss November (Lum do dee ally day)
But I say I, I, I love you better
I, I, I love you better
I, I, I love you better
I, I, I love you better
I, I, I love you better
I, I, I love you better
I, I, I love you better
I, I, I love you better…
