lyrics

It was early mornin’ yesterday, I was up before the dawn.
I really have enjoyed my stay, but I must be movin’ on.
Like a king without a castle, like a queen without a throne,
I’m an early mornin’ lover and I must be movin’ on.

Now I believe in what you say, it’s the undisputed truth.
But I have to have things my own way, just to keep me in my youth.
Like a ship without an anchor, like a slave without a chain,
Thought of those sweet ladies puts a shiver through my veins.
I will go on shinin’, shinin’ like brand-new,
If I never look behind me, my troubles will be few…

Goodbye stranger, it’s been nice, hope you find your paradise.
Tried to see your point-of-view, hope your dreams will all come true.
Goodbye Mary, good-bye Jane, will we ever meet again?
Sweet devotion, is not for me, give me motion or set me free...

Some they do and some they don’t, and some you just can’t tell.
Some girls will and some girls won’t, and with some it’s just as well.
Well you can laugh at my behaviour, that will never bother me,
Say the devil is my Saviour, but I won’t pay no heed.
I will on go on shinin’, shinin’ like brand-new,
If I never look behind me, my troubles will be few…

Goodbye stranger, it’s been nice, hope you find your paradise.
Tried to see your point-of-view, hope your dreams will all come true.
Goodbye Mary, good-bye Jane, will we ever meet again?
Feel no sorrow, feel no shame, come tomorrow, feel no pain.

It was early mornin’ yesterday, I was up before the dawn.
I really have enjoyed my stay, but I must be movin’ on…
