aww, shucks.


when i was in honduras, i wanted to see my baby, any way i could. sure, i could talk to her on the phone, and i sent her lots of letters, heck, i even had a photograph. but i didn't have me no amy. even when i went to sleep!

sung with a seevear twang.


i can't have you in my dreams

maybe it's a way that fate is workin' possibilities,
maybe it means that our courtship is doomed to an end
maybe we're not sending any nocturnal love now
'til we can find a better way to share the same bed.

i can't have you in my dreams
during the day i love you it seems
but when i lay me down to sleep
and it's my baby i long to meet
i can't have you in my dreams.

recently i woke in a sweat
worst dream i'd had of us yet!
i'd been cheatin', so had you
it was clear that we were through,
we were sorry that we had ever met.

i can't have you in my dreams
during the day i love you it seems
sometimes i'm gray and you are blue,
it's a civil war for two
where i can't have you in my dreams.

once i saw you near me in the night,
it was all in black and white,
we were in a shopping mall,
a thousand naked israelis swam between us
and i couldn't reach you, try as i might.

i can't have you in my dreams
during the day i love you it seems
when i rest my weary soul,
i can't touch you with a ten foot pole
i can't have you in my dreams.

like once jerkin' off in a bathtub
there was sex but there was no love!
fifteen people watched me spew,
not a single one was you,
i was hopin' you would join the club.

i can't have you in my dreams
during the day i love you it seems
when i'm in a lovin' mode,
and you're not in my area code,
i can't have you in my dreams.

every day i wake up the same,
all the dreams i have with you are lame!
maybe someday they'll get better,
i'll go to sleep and we'll stay together
and i'll never have to wake up.
