  • I've always been the kind of man who doesn't believe in strings
    Long term obligations are just unnecessary things
    But girl you've got me thinkin', while I'm drinking one more beer
    If I'm headed for a heartache, then why the hell am I still here

    I'm testin' my resistance and its wearin' mighty thin
    I got the feelin' I should leave before the roof caves in
    My mind tells me to move along but my body begs me stay
    And now I feel the need to hold you close and love the night away

    While you're turnin' me
    Every which way but loose
    You turn me every which way but loose
    Inside the fire's burnin' me
    In mind you just keep turnin' me
    Every which way but loose
    Baby there's no excuse
    To turn me every which way but loose

    When the sun comes up in the mornin' it should find me someplace new
    But right this minute all I want is to lay here next to you
    Those memories still keep callin' me from somewhere in my past
    Better hurry if they want me cause I can feel me fading fast

    While you're turnin' me
    Every which way but loose
    You turn me every which way but loose
    Inside the fire's burnin' me
    In mind you just keep turnin' me
    Every which way but loose
    Baby there's no excuse
    To turn me every which way but loose Writer/s: MILTON L BROWN, STEPHEN DORFF, SNUFF GARRETT
