  • So many times there was a man, he met a girl, took her hand
    Told her, "Never will I leave you my love"
    But just as soon as he gone again she's flapping in the wind wondering what she must have been thinking of
    She's a darling
    I've been in and out so many doors
    And I've always tried to keep my head
    With all the men I've known before
    I've seen plenty places
    That I'll never see again
    I've seen a 100,000 faces
    And only called a few my friend

    But it's a mystery
    Just how you came right in
    And stole my heart away
    And left me there again

    (Feeling like a stranger to my happiness)
    To my happiness
    (Feeling like a stranger to my happiness)

    Now if you think that's a thing that only evil men can bring
    Let me skin this cat another way
    There was a man who had a plan to settle down with Mary Ann
    He said "Darling (darling)
    I've been in and out so many door
    And I've always tried to keep my head
    With all the girls I've known before
    I've seen plenty places
    That I'll never see again
    I've seen a 100,000 faces
    And only called a few my friend

    But it's a mystery
    Just how you came right in
    And stole my heart away
    And left me there again
    I'm feeling

    (Feeling like a stranger to my happiness)
    To my happiness
    (Feeling like a stranger to my happiness)
    Feeling like a stranger

    I'm feelin' (feelin')
    I'm feelin' (feelin')
    I'm feelin' (feelin')
    I feel like
    A stranger
    I feel like
    A stranger to my happiness
    To my happiness
    I've seen pretty faces
    I've been to a lot of places
    I'm feelin'
    Yeah I'm feelin' Writer/s: COCHEMEA JUAN GASTELUM, GABRIEL ROTH, SHARON JONES
