My friends told me all about it
They said I had to see for myself
But I never really cared
Much about love
I thought I could live without it
Until I met this one girl
And she was so fine
I knew she was the one who could change my mind

See, I used to be such a bad, bad boy
And good times were my toy for joy
That was all I was thinking of
But I gave it up when I fell in love
I used to know the party people around the world
I gave it up when I found that girl
