I'm On Your Team

from the album "The Miracle Faith Prickly Heat Telethon of Love"

1978 Words and Music Terry Scott Taylor

I got a back
you got a knife
you keep on pitchin' but
I don't think twice

I'm on your team [baby]
I'm on your team [honey]
I'm on your team [baby]
and I just keep loving you

You smile so big
sometimes it's phony
I'm smilin' too but
it's so hard for me

I'm on your team [baby]
I'm on your team [honey]
I'm on your team [baby]
and I just keep loving you

We try to live it and we talk about examples
how we have to love the little children
these words of wisdom
we put 'em on cassettes
but when we mail 'em up to heaven
will we have our regrets

these implications
just blow my mind
we talk to faces
but have you looked at mine?

I'm on your team [baby]
I'm on your team [honey]
I'm on your team [baby]
and I just keep loving you

I'm not a boy
no teacher's pet
can you bend a little
give me some respect

I'm on your team [baby]
I'm on your team [honey]
I'm on your team [baby]
and I just keep loving you

We cup our hands and we make a little steeple
it's just a game we all can play
we fold our hands and we close our eyes
but if our hearts are any different
we'll take off the disguise
You smile so big
I know it's phony
I'm smilin' too but
it's so hard for me

I'm on your team [baby]
I'm on your team [honey]
I'm on your team [baby]
and I just keep loving you
