Lyrics
L-L, L-L-L, L-L-L-L-Linda
L-L, L-L-L, L-L-L-L-Linda

When I go to sleep
I never count sheep
I count all the char-are-are-arms
About L-L, L-L-L, L-L-L-L-Linda

And lately it seems
(Lately it seems)
In all of my dreams
(All of my dreams)
I walk with my are-are-are-arms about Linda

But what good does it do me
'Cause Linda doesn't know I exist
I can't help feelin' gloomy
Thinkin' 'bout the lovin' I've missed

We pass on the street
(Pass on the street)
My heart skips a beat
(Heart skips a beat)
I say to mysel-el-el-elf
Hello L-L, L-L-L, L-L-L-L-Linda

If only she'd smile
(Only she'd smile)
I'd stop for a while
(Stop for a while)
And then I would ge-e-e-et to know Linda

But miracles still happen
And when my lucky star begins to shine
(Ah-ah-ah-ah)
With one lucky break I'll make Linda mine

L-L, L-L-L, L-L-L-L-Linda
L-L, L-L-L, L-L-L-L-Linda

----- Instrumental Interlude -----

But miracles still happen
And when my lucky star begins to shine
(Ah-ah-ah-ah)
With one lucky break I'll make Linda mine

L-L, L-L-L, L-L-L-L-Linda
L-L, L-L-L, L-L-L-L-Linda
L-L, L-L-L, L-L-L-L-Linda
L-L, L-L-L, L-L-L-L-Linda
L-L, L-L-L, L-L-L-L-Linda
L-L, L-L-L, L-L-L-L-Linda
L-L, L-L-L, L-L-L-L-Linda
