Randy Newman — The One You Love lyrics

You've got to learn to get to know the one you love.
To anticipate her ev'ry move,
You got to know exactly what she's thinking of.
She may be hungry but she won't say.
You better get a burger or something in her right away.
If you don't, you're gonna pay
At the hand of the one you love.
(The one you love, the one you love.)

Young man, you're running free, you're running wild.
You fall in love, you become nothing but a little baby child.
She can hurt you with the sound of her voice.
You can leave her but you got no choice.
You can't leave her, man, you're just a pris'ner of the one you love.
(The one you love, the one you love.)
[ Lyrics from: http://www.lyricsty.com/randy-newman-the-one-you-love-lyrics.html ]
True love never runs smooth, you know.
Sometimes there'll be sunny days,
Sometimes there'll be sleet and snow.
When true love calls you, man, you gotta go.
And when you gotta go, you gotta go.

You got to know the one you love.
You got to know the one you love.
(The one you love, the one you love.
The one you love, the one you love.)

Once, a great man's heart was captured by a lovely chest.
He told himself it was her mind he loved,
But he was blind like all the rest.
Twenty hard years went by
Till another chest will catch his eye.
He just hung his head and cried
And said, "Sorry dear, you're too late.
I've already ruined my life."

You've got to know the one you love.
She may be gentle, she may be kind,
She may not know exactly what's on her mind.
But you better know,
Or you're gonna find you lose the one you love.
(The one you love, the one you love.)
The one you love.
(The one you love, the one you love.)
The one you love
(The one you love, the one you love.)
The one you love.
