Girls, you've been in love too long
I said, "Girls, you've been in love too long"

When just his smile
Takes all your pain away
And you find yourself believin'
Whatever he may say

Now when he gets you cryin'
But your heart tells you
Girl keep right on tryin'

You know girl, you've been in love too long
(You're a fool for your baby)
Girls, you've been in love too long
(You're a fool for your baby)

When you accepted wrongs
Just to share his kiss
Even your lonely nights
You know they're filled with happiness

You know girl you're in trouble
You know your heart is seein' double
'Cause when you're head tells you to run
But your heart tells you, "Girl he's the only one"
You know you have been in love too long

Girl, you've been in love too long

'Cause when a week of loneliness
Can be erased with just one sweet caress

Girl, you've been in love too long
(You're a fool for your baby)
Don't you know girl, you've been in love too long
(You're a fool for your baby)

When his wrong looks right
Though he always treats you bad
You find little excuses
For all the sadness and abuses

Girl, you've been in love too long
You've been in love too long
Love too long

Baby love too long
Baby love too long
Baby love too long
