  • Isn't that my girl
    And is that my best friend
    Aren't they walking much too close together
    And it don't look like they're talking about the weather

    I must be seeing things I thought I'd never see
    I must be hearing things when I hear her say to him
    "I want you, I need you, I love you"

    Looking through a tear
    I can see him kissing her
    And I feel my poor heart softly breaking
    I'd do anything if only I was mistaken

    I must be seeing things, oh no, it can't be true
    I must be hearing things when I hear him say to her
    "Forget him, it's over, you're mine now"

    I must be seeing things I thought I'd never see
    I must be hearing things, you made a fool of me
    I must be seeing things and hearing things
    Oh, no I love you so
    Oh, please don't go Writer/s: AL KOOPER, BOB BRASS, IRWIN LEVINE
