I'm a firm believer in my "inner voice".  That little voice that prompts you to do or to avoid things...even tho it may not be logical.  It's the Guiding Hand of the universe trying to help you along life's way.  Sooner or later, it will guide you to love and happiness!


Lyrics

 

(Male)
I was sitting at the diner late one afternoon having,
Drinking coffee and talking to my pals.
EVERYBODY noticed when she walked into the room,
We never had seen nothing like that gal!
My friends tried to stop me, "Son, you haven't got a chance,
You're gonna outrun your coverage, don't be thinking 'bout romance!"
But when she looked my way, I couldn't hear the TALK
She didn't have to drive me CRAZY
I was CLOSE ENOUGH TO WALK!

(female)
He was sitting in the corner, with a bunch of guys
Laughing and watching all the girls
I couldn't help but notice his BIG brown eyes
Wicked grin and head full of curls
He was long and tall, THAT MAN was fine!
And I just kept thinking, Lord, I've gotta make him MINE
But when he strolled across the room I couldn't even TALK
He didn't have to drive me CRAZY
I was CLOSE ENOUGH TO WALK!

(Back and forth dialogue)
Well, that was thirty years ago....More like thirty-one
Our kids have all grown up....But we're still havin' fun!
Our favorite conversation is still PILLOW TALK
SHE didn't have to drive me CRAZY...HE didn't have to drive me CRAZY
YOU didn't have to drive me CRAZY
I was CLOSE ENOUGH TO WALK!

Yea, OUR favorite conversation is still PILLOW TALK!
YOU don't have to drive me CRAZY...I'm CLOSE ENOUGH TO WALK!
