You Can

You Can't Make Love To Somebody

Carl Perkins

(C. Perkins, Sun, 1955)

Well you can't make love to somebody
When you got somebody else on your mind
Oh you can't make love to another
When you try you're just wasting your time
Took my gal by the hand, started dancing
I tried to lose these low down blues I couldn't hide
Yeah, fell in love, the thought of her kept on shining
Oh when you try you're just wasting your time
Oh you can't make love to somebody
When you got somebody else on your mind
Oh you can't make love to another
'Cause when you try you're just wasting your time
Rock!

Listen boy, ain't no joy when you're lonesome
Troubled time get you off on the wrong track
Listen to a man that's had a lot experience
If you do wrong then you'll never win her back
Well you can't make love to somebody
When you got somebody else on your mind
I said, you can't make love to another
When you try you're just wasting my time
Rock!
