Lacosta — He Took Me For A Ride lyrics

When you're in love, yeah, things don't happen, just the way you plan.
I want you to know, that I lost control with a great big good-looking man.
I knew he had it, and I couldn't stand it, and that's why I gave in,
To his sweet lovin ways and I'm happy to say, I'd do it all over again.

He took me for a ride by the cool river side. I never knew the feeling before.
He loved me up tight by the river moonlight, who could ask for anything more.
I could have been a fool but I played it cool, and I stayed close by his side.
Now I'm gonna shout it, 'cause there's no doubt about it, he really took me for a ride.

He was a man with a hundred hands, believe me he was out of sight! The things he done and said kept runnin' through my head, I knew he'd be my lover all night.

He took me for a ride by the cool riverside, I never knew the feeling before. He loved me up-tight by the river's moonlight, who could ask for anything more?
I could have been a fool but I played it cool, and I stayed close by his side. Now I'm gonna shout it, 'cause there's no doubt about it, he really took me for a ride.

(optional verse added in the Jody Miller version, left out by Lacosta)

A few years have passed, and here we are at last, livin' in our own little world. I'm pickin' up toys from our two little boys; we've got a brand new baby girl.

Now don't get me wrong, big daddy's goin' strong, and I'm still satisfied, 'cause every night he comes home right where he belongs, and he still takes me for a ride.
