Lyrics

All at once you get love on your mind
And your world is as kind as a penny
Oh and you knew it all along
You did the right thing
Believe me it's true
And it can happen to you

All at once you get sound in your ears
And your cloud disappears into yellow
Well you know they were wrong
Get on the right thing
Well you knew it all along
Get on the right thing
Believe me its so because I happen to know

Try a little love, you can't go wrong
Get on the right thing
Get on the right thing
Get on the right thing

My little love you cant go wrong
Get on the right thing
Get on the right thing,
Get on the right thing do,
get on the right thing you

All at once we see things in our skies
And we both realize it together
Well you know they were wrong
Get on the right thing
Yes you knew it all along
Get on the right thing
Well believe me its so because I happen to know

You can't go wrong
Get on the right thing, Get on the right thing
Get on the right thing
You can't go wrong
Get on the right thing and try
And it can't go wrong
Get on the right thing you etc.
Try a little love, you can't go wrong
Get on the right thing
Get on the right thing etc
