La da da da, la da da da
La da da da, la da da da

I go halfway 'round the world
I need another girl
But when I see her all I do is think of you

We take a drink at my hotel
I pray for your telephone bell
But it's my turn to call you won't come through

I never wanna hurt you again
I tried to change my life, I promise this
The only trouble is you know
I think I like it the way it is
I think I like it the way it is

La da da da, la da da da
La da da da, la da da da

As I lay awake alone
I know you are waiting home
And there's really nothing going on

I try to please the local crew
'Cause they say they love me too
But I'm really only showing off

I never wanna hurt you again
I tried to change my life, I promise this
The only trouble is you know
I think I like it the way it is
I think I like it the way it is

My heart, oh, my heart is aching
And I'm lonely for you
But I know that really must seem
Like so many words of truth

Oh darling, oh darling, oh darling
Am I even worth your frown?
The sweetness of your kiss is gone
I've brought a curse to you now

La da da da, la da da da
La da da da, la da da da

I go halfway 'round the world
I need another girl
But when I see her all I do is think of you

We take a drink at my hotel
I pray for your telephone bell
But it's my turn to call you won't get through

I never wanna hurt you again
I tried to change my life, I promise this
The only trouble is you know
I think I like it the way it is
I like it the way it is

I like it the way it is
Just the way it is
