That's Not the Way It's Done


I saw you crying in the quaker choir
They don't swing so low
There's no religion like old-time religion
It's a heavy snow
That puts you in the mood for love
And I was in the mood, yeah
I was in the mood

But if I was stronger
You know I never would have hurt you that way
I fell into a hollow love
And that's not the way that it's done

I had to ring you 'cause the background singers
Really blew that night
Yes I knew you had a bluer side
But it's a real black light
That puts you in the mood for love
And I was in the mood
I was in the mood, yeah

But if I was stronger
You know I never would have hurt you that way
I fell into a hollow love
But that's not the way that it's done

There's nothing worse than a narcissist
Working a disaster nurse
She ends up versus the goddamn center of the universe
Who's always in the mood for love
Always in the mood
Always in the mood, yeah

But if I was stronger
You know I never would have hurt you that way
I fell into a hollow love
But that's not the way that it's done

If I was stronger
You know I never would have hurt you that way
I fell into a hollow love
But that's not the way that it's done
No that's not the way that it's done
