        [Eb]Listen to me, baby, you got to under[Db/Eb]stand [Fm/Eb]

Nature's takin' over my one-track mind
Believe it or not, you're in my heart all the time
All the girls are sayin' that you'll end up a fool
For the time being, baby, live by the rules

Refrain 2:

When I settle down
I want one baby on my mind
Forgive and forget
And I'll make up for all lost time

If she's put together fine and she's readin' my mind (Stop!)
I can't stop (Stop!) I can't stop myself
(Stop! Stop!)

Lightnin's striking again
Lightnin's striking again and again and again and again

Refrain 3:

There's a chapel in the pines
Waiting for us around the bend
Picture in your mind
Love forever, but 'til then

If she gives me a sign that she wants to make time (Stop!)
I can't stop (Stop!) I can't stop myself
(Stop! Stop!)

(repeat chorus 2)

Coda (repeat to fade):

        [Fm7]Lightnin's striking ag[Gm7]ain and again and ag[C7]ain and again
