      About "A Lover Was Born"

      Lyrics for Lee Dorsey - "A Lover Was Born"

      When Mom and Papa first laid eyes
      On me right from the start
      They knew right away a lover was born
      I'd be breakin' lovers' hearts
      (Breakin' lovers' hearts)

      At a very early age, yeah, I began to show sign
      That a stone cold lover was born
      Lord, I'm gonna let it shine, yeah
      (I'm gonna let it shine, yeah)

      Girl, if I can't love you
      A reel can make gumbo
      A drunken man don't stumble
      A seein'-eye dog can learn to lead the blind

      A bee don't deal in honey
      The Beatles ain't got no money
      And watermelons grow on a grapevine

      One day my papa told me
      'Son, sit down, I gotta talk to you
      Said, don't believe I can't understand
      I've been through the same thing too?

      Said, ?You think you're pretty hot stuff
      And you dig every girl you see
      But listen, son, settle for one
      It'll save a lotta misery in the long run?

      If that don't get it, sonny
      There ain't no corpse in the dawn
      There ain't no birds in a home
      And you can get black from a turnip
      If you squeeze and squeeze

      Tears don't go with the blues
      Chicken wear high-heeled shoes
      And Old McDonald's farm didn't have no trees

      I'm gonna take my papa's advice
      Though it's gonna be hard to do
      I'm gonna stop tryin' to prove a point
      I'm gonna give myself to you, girl

      If I fear you, baby
      Ain't no leaps in a frog
      There ain't no bumps on a log
      And you can get black from a turnip
      If you squeeze and squeeze

      A new cow don't give milk
      A egg don't got no yolk
      And I'd pull side of pole right out of tree, yeah
      Baby
