It took 5 women 2 get U off of my mind
It took 5 months of plenty good wasted time
But it just took 5 minutes when I saw ur face again
2 fall n love all over, I guess with U I'll never win

March was a cold 1 n more ways than 1
I went down 2 the nightclub lookin' 4 the sun
Lookin' 4 a light that could brighten up a day
That's been darker than a hole since U went away

April usually brings showers
This time it was a hurting kind
This woman said she wanted my baby
I told her I'd have 2 b deaf, dumb and blind
2 fall n love with someone that I barely knew
The baby would never really have a father
Cuz I still... huh, b stuck on U
Ooh

It took 5 women
2 get U off of my mind
Get off my mind, baby
Fallin' n love all over
With U I'll never win

May was her name, she was jumpin'
Jumpin' from plane 2 plane
Actress or model or somethin'
Can't even remember her 1st name

June brought an Easter bunny
Needless 2 say, hmph, that girl was late
Told a made-up story 2 a busy-body of our only date
What a sketch

July was a heartbreak, extraordinary
I said I met this woman whose kiss was somethin' scary
It felt so much, so much like urs
But it only made me, made me want U more
She's gone, she's gone but U're still here
I want U very... huh, it's U I fear, oh

But it took 5 women, yes it did, 2 get U off my mind
It took 5 months, 5 months of plenty good wasted time
But it just took 5 minutes and I saw ur face again
I fell n love all over with U, I guess I'll never win
I never win
