  • Doctor my woman is comin' back home late today
    Could ya' maybe give me something?
    'Cause the feelin' is gone
    And I must get it back right away

    Before she sees that I've been
    Up, down, tryin' to get the feelin' again
    All around tryin' to get the feelin' again
    The one that made me shiver

    Made my knees start to quiver
    Every time she walked in
    And I've looked high, low,
    Everywhere I possibly can

    But there's no tryin' to get the feelin' again
    It seemed to disappear as fast as it came
    Where did it run to?
    I thought I'd done all that I could

    Just to keep the love light burnin'
    But whatever I've done I guess
    I just haven't done it too good
    'Cause all that's left is yearnin'

    I've been up, down, tryin' to get the feelin' again
    All around tryin' to get the feelin' again
    The one that made me shiver

    Made my knees start to quiver
    Every time she walked in
    And I've looked high, and low
    And everywhere I possibly can

    But there's no tryin' to get the feelin' again
    It seemed to disappear as fast as it came
    I've been looking, I've been looking, I've been looking

    I've been up, and down and tryin' to get the feelin'
    I've been up, I've been down, I've been tryin' to get
    I've been tryin', I've been tryin',I've been tryin'
    To get the feeling
    I've been tryin' to get the feeling again
    I want to get that feeling
    I'm going to get that feeling
    I got to get that feeling
    I got to get that feeling
    And again, and again, and again, and again
    Tryin' to get that feeling
    I been tryin' to get the feeling again Writer/s: David Hyman Pomeranz

  • David from Lakeland, FlHey Ron you beat me to it, my brother. I always thought that it was about masturbation too. i think we discussed this over a beer before. more evidence is made me shiver, knees star to quiver, and disappeared as fast as it came
  • Ron from Auburndale, FlThis sounds bad, but I always thought that this song could be about masterbation. "Up, down, trying to get the feeling again". That aside, it is a great song. It has an epic feeling to it, the way it builds up and builds up to a huge theatrical ending. Awesome effects on this song.
