A New Flame

I was bowled out
I was sold down the river
And her warm heart
Would turn me forever

She’s turned me round
A new flame has come
And noth­ing she can do
Can do me wrong

I am stern now
Petty words
Don’t believe me
But her warm smile
Is nev­er gonna leave me

She’s turned me round
A new flame has come
And noth­ing she can do
Can do me wrong

Wrong oh no
Wrong oh no

She’s made of real glass
She got real real emo­tion
But my heart laughs
I have that same
Sweet devo­tion

She’s turned me round
A new flame has come
And noth­ing she can do
Can do me wrong

Wrong oh no
Wrong oh no
Noth­ing she can do
Can ever do me wrong
