I only meant to love you
Didn't you know it, baby
Didn't you know it

Why couldn't you be content
With the love I gave, oh yeah
I gave you my heart
But you wanted my mind, oh yeah

Your love scares me to death boy
Oh, it's the choking kind
That all it is

See you can kill a girl
With a bottle of poison or a knife
I know you can but it'll hurt her more
To take her pride, it'll ruin her life
Oh, it's a shame, it's a shame, boy

Whatever it is, boy
I surely hope you find, oh yeah
I tell you that hat, hmm
Don't fit my head
Oh, it's the choking kind

It make me want to
Hmm, hmm, hmm, hmm

When you fall in love again, boy
Take a tip from me, oh yeah
Ooh, if you don't like the peach
Then walk on by the tree
That's what you better do honey, honey

Find what you want boy
Keep it, treat it sweet and kind, oh yeah
Oh, let it breathe
Don't go makin'
It the choking kind

Don't break your heart baby, baby
I know you love me, truly, truly
Really I do, honey
But your love scares me to death, boy
It's the choking kind

That's all it is, that's all it is
Yeah, yeah, oh, ooh
