elenore lyrics – the turtles

elenore

you’ve got a thing about you
i just can’t live without you
i really want you, elenore, near me

your looks intoxicate me
even though your folks hate me
there’s no one like you, elenore, really

elenore, gee, i think you’re swell
and you really do me well
you’re my pride and joy, et cetera

elenore, can i take the time
to ask you to speak your mind?
tell me that you love me better

i really think you’re groovy
let’s go out to a movie
what do you say now, elenore, can we?

they’ll turn the lights way down low
maybe we won’t watch the show
i think i love you, elenore, love me

elenore, gee, i think you’re swell
and you really do me well
you’re my pride and joy, et cetera

elenore, can i take the time
to ask you to speak your mind?
tell me that you love me better

elenore, gee, i think you’re swell, ah-ha
elenore, gee, i think you’re swell, ah-ha-ha
