One Of A Kind
The Spinners Lyrics

One of a kind love affair is
The kind of love that you read about in a fairy tale
Like the sun that shines on a rainy day, it's a cloud of love
One of a kind love affair is
When your down is up when your up is down
But love stays around
And when you know you're right, but you got to make a little sacrifice
You make it for love
Whoa-oh, yeah
I never thought about today would come
When she would leave without good-bye, yes, sir
She wrote a line or two upon the wall
Said, "I'm leaving you, know I love you too I can't stay with you
Until this very day, I could never say a discouraging word
'Cause I love you"
Whoa-oh-oh, yes, siree, now

(One of a kind) love affair is (love affair is)
When you hate to say, "Girl, I told you so, but you gotta go"
There won't be a fight, 'cause your love is right
But you're leaving wrong, wrong, wrong, wrong
(One of a kind) ooh (love affair is) ooh, yeah
When you treat her nice but you finally have to pay the price
And though you know you're right
But you got to make a little sacrifice
You make it for love
You make it for love
Ah, hey, hey, hey, hey, oh

One of a kind love affair is
Makes you want to love her,
You just got to hug her, yeah
One of a kind, one of a kind, love affair is
Makes a lame man walk, makes a blind man talk about seein' again
(One of a kind) oh yeah (love affair is) my heart
It makes me want to be around ya
Ah, girl, I'm glad I found ya
(One of a kind) wooh-ee, (love affair is) I want to tell you now
Every day is sunshine, girl, you're on my mind
One of a kind, one of a kind love affair is
Makes me want to, want to be with you
(One of a kind) baby, baby, baby
