lyrics

Lady down the road,
can you tell me where to go,
you’re making love now to my man.
And I run, run, run, run ‘till I drown,
I’m going under wearing my crown.

Boy you can keep me from my downfall,
I think that I’m the one you should call.
But now you’re in awe,
with the lady sitting on my seesaw.

You keep on hunting my love.
You keep on hunting my love.
You keep on hunting my love.
I’m like a deer you killed with your spear of love.
Do you like to see me cry?

When you decide to stay,
the lady sultry leads the way,
and she whispers sweet betray.
You can fly like a dove,
but on a jet plane you left my love.

And even though the road is long,
I can see where you went wrong.
Cause now you’re in awe,
with the lady sitting on my seesaw.

You keep on hunting my love.
You keep on hunting my love.
You keep on hunting my love,
I’m like a deer you killed with your spear of love.
Do you like to see me die?

Green leaves appear in the night,
they will swallow the dark.
Green leaves appear in the night,
they will swallow the dark.

You, with your silent talk,
I like to watch you.
Why should I feel sorry for you,
with your dressed up company,
while I’m sitting all alone in my room?

You keep on hunting my love.
You keep on hunting my love.
You keep on hunting my love.
I’m like a deer you killed with your spear of love.
I’m like a deer you killed with your spear of love.
I’m like a deer you killed with your spear of love.
Do you like to see me die?

Lady down the road,
please tell me where to go,
and stop making love to my man.
I’ll swim, swim, swim, swim, I shall not drown.
I’m like an old queen stuck to her crown.

And boy I can keep you from your downfall,
I think that I’m the one you should call.
But now you’re in awe with the lady sitting on my seesaw.
Yeah, now you’re in awe with the lady sitting on my seesaw.
So, now you’re in awe with the lady sitting on my seesaw.
