I was lovin you,
when a monkey first climbed a tree.
and I was lovin you,
when man first slithered from The Sea.
and I was lovin you,
when your devil fell from grace.
and I was lovin you
when you vanished without a trace.
 I'll be lovin you
til the Sun don't shine.
So glad you're one of mine
Since, I've been lovin you
from a distance.,

And, I was lovin you .
when your horses were still runnin' free
And, I was lovin you
when your flowers first got buzzed 
by those big mad bumble bees
And I was lovin you .
when your good book was still young.
And,I was lovin you,
when your momma was runnin hot streaks,
and havin' her very high fun.
I'll be lovin you
til the end of time.
so glad you're one of mine
Since, I've been lovin you
from a distance.

And, I was lovin' you
before you had a radio
And, I was lovin you
first day of school
when your momma said, honey, 
 time to go.
And, I was lovin you
when you had your very first toke
And I was lovin you
when you thought my musical
politics, 'n' everything about this world
was a bad joke.
I'm still lovin you
til the end of the line.

So, get them cobwebs out your attic
Don't cause me no static
electricity
Don't get that mess on me
then, come on Downtown
and I'll straighten you right ou ou out,.
Cuz, one two three strikes
and side out 
side out.
I don't want to be your one and only
when you;re cold and lonely
I don't want to be your only out.. 
.
 Cuz, I've  been lovin you
when you threw your first penny
inside that stone wishin well.
And I was lovin you
before there was a heaven or a hell.

And, I  was lovin you
when you fell below the bottom rung
and I was lovin you
when your first favorite song
that made me cringe
was cut and it was sung
I was lovin you
Even when your Sun don't shine...
So glad you're one of mine
i've been lovin you
from a safe distance.
