Why Can't You Be Mine

 

The love of my life won't ever be mine

She belongs to someone else

And every night he's all over town

While she's at home all by herself

He doesn't love her

And she's so true

He doesn't love her like I do

And what would I give to be in his shoes

 

 

                        And why can't you be mine

                        Sweet-eyed girl take this heart of mine

                        Why can't you be mine

                        What can I do to make you change your mind

                        Why can't you be mine

 

 

I've wanted that girl for way too long

More than anything else in life

And every time he does her wrong

I want to lay right down and die

The other night

I was driving home

I saw her walking all alone

I pulled up to her

I said I got to know

 

 

                        Why can't you be mine

                        Sweet-eyed girl take this heart of mine

                        Why can't you be mine

                        What can I do to make you change your mind

                        Why can't you be mine
