Listen to me, baby, you got to understand
You’re old enough to know the makings of a man
Listen to me, baby, it’s hard to settle down
Am I asking too much for you to stick around

Every boy wants a girl
He can trust to the very end
Baby, that’s you
Won’t you wait but ’til then

When I see lips beggin’ to be kissed (Stop!)
I can’t stop (Stop!)
I can’t stop myself (Stop! Stop!)

Lightnin’s striking again
Lightnin’s striking again

Nature’s takin’ over my one-track mind
Believe it or not, you’re in my heart all the time
All the girls are sayin’ that you’ll end up a fool
For the time being, baby, live by the rules

When I settle down
I want one baby on my mind
Forgive and forget
And I’ll make up for all lost time

If she’s put together fine and she’s readin’ my mind (Stop!)
I can’t stop (Stop!) I can’t stop myself
(Stop! Stop!)

Lightnin’s striking again
Lightnin’s striking again and again and again and again

Lightnin’s striking again
Lightnin’s striking again

There’s a chapel in the pines
Waiting for us around the bend
Picture in your mind
Love forever, but ’til then

If she gives me a sign that she wants to make time (Stop!)
I can’t stop (Stop!)
I can’t stop myself (Stop! Stop!)

Lightnin’s striking again
Lightnin’s striking again and again and again and again
Lightnin’s striking again and again and again and again
