Roberta

Album: Streetlife Serenade (1974)
  • Roberta, you say you know me
    But I see only what you're paid to show me
    Oh, I wish you had the time
    Oh, I wish you had the time

    Oh, Roberta, I understand you
    I know you need to move in other circles too;
    It's tough for me, it's tough for you

    Roberta, how I've adored you
    I'd ask you over but I can't afford you
    Oh, I wish you'd take the time
    Oh, I wish you'd take the time

    Oh, Roberta, the night goes slowly
    I know you're workin' but you must get lonely too;
    It's tough for me, ah, it's tough for you

    And I'm in a bad way and wanna make love to you, ooh, ooh

    Oh, I wish you had the time
    Oh, I wish you had the time
    Oh, Roberta, I really need you
    But I suppose that my small change won't see you through;
    It's tough for me, ah, it's tough for you
