Can’t Get You Out of My System

{EAV_BLOG_VER:986461fd466806df}

I once looked at fellows as some sort of game
They were history before I could miss them
But you came along and it wasn’t the same
Now I can’t get you out of my system
I was breaking their hearts by the time I was six
Had so many I can’t even list them
Then you gave me something no doctor can fix
Now I can’t get you out of my system

You found a way to get under my skin
That sapped me of all my endurance
Now that little love-bug you planted within
Ain’t covered by no ‘mount of health insurance

My chart is a landscape of valleys and peaks
Defying all medical wisdom
I’m changing my blood every five or six weeks
But I can’t get you out of my system

Who could’ve guessed I would come to such grief
Over some little bundle of tease
It just goes to prove my most fervent belief
That love’s still the cruelest venereal disease

I’m riddled with ailments no drug can reverse
And my will is too weak to resist them
So I ponder my fate as I ring for the nurse
‘Cause I can’t get you out of my system
No I can’t get you out
No I can’t get you out
I can’t get you out
Out of my system
