I know you've been hurt
By someone else
I can tell by the way
That you carry yourself
If you'll let me
Here's what I'll do
I'll take good care of you

I, I, I loved and lost
Same as you
So I know, darling
I know what you've been through
If you'll let me
Here's what I'll do
I'll take good care of you

You won't ever have to worry
You won't ever have to cry
Remember, pretty darling
You better dry your weeping eyes

But darling tell me
You'll be true
I have no doubt, darling
I know what I will do
Just as sure as one and one is two
I'll take good care of you
I'll take good care of you
I'll take good care of you
Take good care of you
I'll take good care of you
