Betty Jo, you made it plain
When first you held me near
Even though you caused me pain
You were all the world to me

We made love, we had such fun
Many fine times went by us
Now it's all so hazy and a little bit crazy
Betty Jo my heart's on fire, I don't need this crying
The next time you see me
In the back seat of a taxi's where I'll be

Betty called me in to say goodnight
Much to my relief and pure delight
I think that was my big love scene
I do believe her engine run all right

Betty said, get ready, the time has come
I was young and my good life had begun
And with the dawn the child in me was gone
Betty made a man out of me that night

Betty made my clothes and sewed my jeans
Listening to my songs and foolish schemes
I think the way she got to me
It would seem like a laser beam right to the soul

Betty my true love do what you do tonight
Where she goes, I hope she knows she's right
The worst of times and the best of times
She was never the kind to kick and bitch and fight

Betty called me in to say goodnight
Much to my relief and pure delight
And with the dawn the child in me was gone
Betty made a man out of me that night

I think that was my big love scene
I do believe her engine run all right
