the whole town’s laughing at me lyrics – teddy pendergrass

the whole town’s laughing at me

yeah, i had your love right here
in the palm of my hands
and i lost it and i lost it
had a love so new, one a man feel
and i lost it and i lost it

maybe if i had spent more time with you
maybe then, maybe then you’d still be mine
oh and only if i had been just a little more kind to you
there’d be no need, for this man to be cryin’

the whole town’s laughing at me
silly fool, how’d you lose such a good friend?

had my dream so near
i could reach out and touch it
and i lost it and i lost it
had a world complete
it was, oh, so sweet
and i lost it and i lost it

maybe if i had spent just a little more time with you
maybe then, maybe then you still be mine
oh and only if i had been just a little more kind to you
there’d be no need, for this man to be cryin’

the whole town’s laughing at me
silly fool, how’d you lose such a good friend? oh

maybe if i had spent more time with you
maybe then, maybe then you still be mine
maybe i think about it
and only if i had been just a little more kind to you
there’d be no need, for this man to be cryin’

the whole town’s laughing at me
silly fool, how’d you lose such a good friend?
the whole town’s laughing at me
silly fool, how’d you lose such a good friend?
the whole town’s laughing at me
silly fool, how’d you lose such a good friend?
