NEEDLES AND PINS

(Jack Nitzsche / Sonny Bono) I saw her today, I saw her face It was the face I loved and I knew I had to run away and get down on my knees and pray That they'd go away But still they begin Needles and pins Because of all my pride The tears I gotta hide Hey, I thought I was smart, I wanted her Didn't think I'd do, but now I see She's worse to him than me Let her go ahead, take his love instead And one day she will see Just how to say please And get down on her knees Yeah, that's how it begins She'll feel those needles and pins a-hurtin her, a-hurtin her Why can't I stop and tell myself I'm wrong, I'm wrong, so wrong Why can't I stand up and tell myself I'm strong Because I saw her today, I saw her face It was the face I loved and I knew I had to run away and get down on my knees and pray That they'd go away But still they begin Needles and pins Because of all my pride The tears I gotta hide Ah, needles and pins Needles and pins Needles and pins
