All of the Good Ones Are Taken

I said: Girl–things ain’t been goin’ too good for me
I said: Girl–I’m living in the middle of this mystery
You’re the only one that can turn me on
And now that you’re gone

I said: Girl–I’m livin’ in the middle of your memory
I said: Girl–You’re still the figure in my favorite fantasy
I know you know that’s the way it goes
And still my love grows–

I said:
All o’ the good
All o’ the good ones are taken
All o’ the good
All o’ the good ones are taken

I’m hangin’ around with my head in the air
Watchin’ the lovers go by
I had a lover but she never cared
All you could say was goodbye, ooh

Maybe I was mistaken, maybe I got it wrong
But all of the good ones are taken from now on

N’ Girl–I’m livin’ in the middle of a broken dream
I said: Girl–this fallin’ in love ain’t like it seems
Out in the rain, can’t you feel my pain?
Again n’ again n’ again n’ again n’ again

I say
All of the good
All o’ the good ones are taken....

Ooh
Maybe I was mistaken
Maybe I got it wrong
But all of the good ones are taken in my song

(all o’ the good)
(all o’ the good ones are taken)

Ooh, I say
All o’ the good
All o’ the good ones are taken, ooh
All o’ the good
All o’ the good ones are taken....
(repeat)
