The Breaking Point

 


 


 

      I’ve reached the breakin’ point

      Don’t stand too close to me

      For when my optic nerves

      Observe your curves

      Then suddenly …

      I wanna crush you close

      I wanna hold you tight

      I wanna kiss and tell the world

      I fell in love tonight.

     

      ‘cause I got to have you

      Got to get through to you baby

      That you’re mine, mine, mine.

 

      I have reached the breakin’ point

      The point of no return

      It’s very clear to see

      A fool like me

      Will never ever learn …

      I have reached the breakin’ point

      I hear the drums of doom

      I’m gonna flip my wig

      In one great big atomic boom.

 

      ‘cause I got to have you

      Got to get through to you baby

      That you’re mine, mine, mine.

 

      All at once there’s this big upheaval

      That fills my heart full of dreams

      All at once comes the urge primeval

      And I come apart at the seams …

      Oh … here I go again

      The same old song and dance

      I’ve had my share of tea and sympathy

      But … no romance.

      I’ve reached my breakin’ point

      It’s much too late to stop

      It’s either shoes and rice

      Or lose the dice

      And blow my top.

 

      ‘cause I got to have you

      Got to get through to you baby

      That you’re mine, mine, mine.

 

      All at once there’s this big upheaval

      That fills my heart so full of dreams

      All at once comes the urge primeval

      And I fall apart at the seams …

      Oh … here I go again

      That same old song and dance

      I’ve had my share of tea and sympathy

      But … no romance.

      I’ve reached my breakin’ point

      It’s much too late to stop

      It’s either shoes and rice

      And lose the dice

      Or blow my top.

 

      ‘cause I got to have you

      Got to get near to you baby

      You’re mine …

      Oh … all mine …
