Oh Oh I'm Falling in Love Again
Jimmie Rodgers Lyrics


Jump to: Overall Meaning ↴  Line by Line Meaning ↴

Uh-oh, I'm falling in love again, uh-oh...

Many's the time I've been two-timed
Many's the time I've been stung
Many a honey took all of my money, but
That was when I was much younger.

Made up my mind to be careful
Made up my mind to beware
I was alright until until Saturday night
I met a girl with the goldenest hair.

CHORUS:
Uh-oh, I'm falling in love again, uh-oh
I thought I'd never get caught again
Never in a hundred, never in a thousand,
Never in a million years,
Never in a million years

She had the bluest of blue eyes
She had the cherriest lips
Shouldn't have have kissed her
I tried to resist her but
One kiss, and I was a goner

I couldn't run if I'd wanted
I couldn't run if I tried
Saw what I liked
And I liked what I saw
And my heart went along for the ride.

(CHORUS)

That was the end of my roamin'
Now that it's over, I'm glad
Through gallavantin'
I got in a slam and I'm
Uh-oh, I'm a ring-a-ding daddy

Rockin' the cradle at nighttime
Livin' and lovin' each day
Got me a wife
She's the light of my life
And when I kiss her each morning I say

(CHORUS)

Never in a hundred, never in a thousand,
Never in a million years,




Never in a million years
Uh-oh, uh-oh

I remember being a little kid in the mid to late 90s and my grandma would take me to preschool while listening to an oldies station that was really popular at the time and they would play this song every day when I was on the way to school or out running errands with my grandma. Man I wish I could go back to those times

@laurac555

My 2 year old grandson loves this song...so a new generation is learning how great the music was then.
