I said, "Girl, I'm living in the middle of a mystery"
"Girl, things ain't been goin' too good for me
You're the only one that can turn me on
An' now that you're gone", I said

Girl, I'm livin' in the middle of your memory
I said, "Girl, you're still the figure in my favorite fantasy"
"I know you know but that's the way it goes
And still my love grows", I said

All o' the good
All o' the good ones are taken
All o' the good
All o' the good ones are taken

I'm hangin' around with my head in the air
Watchin' the lovers go by
I had a lover but she never cared
All you could say was goodbye

Maybe I was mistaken
Maybe I've got it wrong
But all of the good ones are taken
From now on

An' girl, I'm livin' in the middle of a broken dream
I said, "Girl, all this fallin' in love ain't what it seems
Out in the rain can't you feel my pain
Again an' again an' again an' again an' again

I said, "All of the good
All o' the good ones are taken"

Maybe I was mistaken
Maybe I've got it wrong
But all of the good ones are taken
In my song

I said, "All of the good
All o' the good ones are taken"
I said, "All of the good
All o' the good ones are taken"

All of the good
All o' the good ones are taken
All of the good
All o' the good ones are taken
