The Dells Lyrics


Oh Lord, it's hard to be humble
When you're perfect in every way
I can't wait to look in the mirror
'Cos I get better looking each day
To know me is to love me
I must be a hell of a man
Oh Lord, it's hard to be humble
But I'm doing the best that I can

I used to have, have a girlfriend
But I guess she just couldn't compete
With all of those love-starved women
Who keep clamoring at my feet

I probably could find me another
I guess they're in awe of me
Who cares, I've never been lonesome
'Cause I treasure my own company

Oh Lord, it's hard to be humble
When you're perfect in every way
I can't wait to look in the mirror
Hell, I get better looking each day
To know me is to love me
I must be a hell of a man
Oh Lord, it's hard to be humble
But I'm doing the best that I can

I guess you could say I'm a loner
A cowboy who's lost nothing proud
I could have lots of friends if I wanted
But then I wouldn't stand out from the crowd

Some folks say that I'm egotistical
Hell I don't even know what that means
I guess it has something to do with the way
That I fill out my skin-tight blue jeans

Oh Lord, it's hard to be humble
When you're perfect in every way
I can't wait to look in the mirror
Cos I get better looking each day
To know me is to love me
I must be a hell of a man
Oh Lord, it's hard to be humble
But I'm doing the best that I can
Oh Lord, it's hard to be humble
But I'm doing the best that I can, yeehaa!

The Quiet Revolution

(There is)
(There is)
(There is)
(There is)

(There is the time, there is the place)
(There is the girl, there is the face)
(There is the hand, there is the touch)
(There is the love I need so much)

Oh girl, why won't you let me love you
And let your troubled heart be free
Take heed to all my goodness
Take a hold and follow me

Now listen, baby

(There is the week, there is today) yeah, yeah
(I am the road, I am the way) oh, yeah
(I'll fight your fears, down through the years) un-huh!
(Believe me, believe me, baby)

Girl, why won't you let me love you
What does it take to make you see (you've got to see, baby)
All the precious time you've been wasting, baby (you've been wasting, you've been wasting)
You could've been sharing it with me, sharing it, baby

Oh, yeah

With every once of my love
I have at my command
I'm doing the very best I can
To make you understand, oh, yeah

(There is) you, baby
(There is) and me
(There is) in hope
(There is) in love

(There is) you, you you
(There is) and me
(There is) in hope
(There is)

Oh Girl, why won't you let me love you
What does it take to make you see (you've got to see, baby)
All the precious time you've been wasting, baby (you've been wasting, you've been wasting)
You could've been sharing it with me, sharing it, baby

(This is the time, this is the place)
(You are the girl, you are the face)
(Here is my hand, this is my touch)
(There is the love I need so much)

(There is) you
(There is) and me
(There is) in love
(There is) keep the faith, baby

(There is) you
(There is) and me
(There is) in hope
(There is) keep the faith, baby

(There is) yeah, yeah, yeah
(There is) in love
(There is) in peace
(There is) keep the faith, baby (repeat to fade out)

Wow, memories! They put their all in every song they sang.

john castiglione

This song never gets old

Roger Gatta

I love this song as much as I did when I bought it. I was in the 10 th grade in love with a girl who never knew it. I was shy back then and didn’t approach her.

Raymond Malcuit

This Song Went To Number 20 On The Billboard Hot 100 Chart In 1968.

Petersicia Gaither

Love this song forever

LV 2020

The 60s had to be the best decade ever for music!

jojamful

Yes! You can’t beat the 60’s and 70’s music (in my opinion).

GoldTA70sChick

plasticweapon
