You ask me to give up the hand of the girl I love
You tell me I'm not the man she's worthy of
But who are you to tell who to love?
That's up to her, yes and the Lord above

You better move on

Well I know you can buy her fancy clothes and diamond rings
But I believe she's happy with me without those things
Still you beg me to set her free
But my friend that will never be

Now I don't blame you for loving her
But can't you understand, man, she's my girl?
And I'm never, never ever going to let her go
Cause I, yeah, I love her so

Well I think you better go now, I'm getting mighty mad
You ask me to give up the only love I've ever had
Maybe I would, oh but I love her so
I'm never going to let her go
