I Should Have Known Better ()
Author: John Lennon; Lead vocal: John Lennon

I should have known better with a girl like you,
That I would love everything that you do;
And I do, hey, hey, hey, and I do.
Whoa, oh, I never realized what a kiss could be,
This could only happen to me;
Can't you see, can't you see,

That when I tell you that I love you, oh,
You're gonna say you love me too, hoo, hoo, hoo, hoo, oh,
And when I ask you to be mine,
You're gonna say you love me too.
You love me too, you love me too.
