James, Tommy - Three Times In Love Lyrics




She was all of a lady, you were all of sixteen,
You were king of the mountain, she was your queen.
You played in the sunshine, you danced in the rain,
It was so easy, when love was a game.
But, everybody's

[Chorus:]
Three times in love.
Two times ain't enough, only one shines above,
Everybody's three times in love.

Lovers get older, summer goes away,
You knew that it was over so you looked the other way.
Suddenly before you, your second time around,
Ah, you're older and wiser and you're covering a lot of ground.
But, everybody's

[Chorus]

(Over and over and over again.)
Now that you're ready, she comes along,
Your ways are steady and your feelings are strong.
She is all of your ladies, you are every man.
You've both been waiting to find each other, now you understand
Why everybody's

[Chorus until fade out]

    #19, 1980.

  5. Forrest Eastby

    One of his later songs, but maybe his best

  6. Debra Brown

    Tommy James and the Shondells were one of my favorite groups when I was a young teenager. I had a lot of their 45 rmp records. Those were great days of music. I love their songs as much today as I did back in the day.

  7. Marshall Lancaster

    Would venture to say this was the last of many hits by him. Just love it—memories of 79-80.

  8. rodolfo orrego

    On this day in 1980 {April 19th} Tommy James performed "Three Times In Love" on the Dick Clark ABC-TV Saturday-afternoon program, 'American Bandstand'...
    At the time the song was at #38 on Billboard's Top 100 chart, three weeks earlier it had peaked at #19 {for 2 weeks} and it spent a total of sixteen weeks on the Top 100...
    And a month earlier on March 23rd, 1980 it reached #1 {for 1 week} on Billboard's Adult Contemporary Tracks chart...
    Between 1970 and 1981 the Ohio native, as a solo artist, had thirteen records on the Top 100 chart, one made the Top 10, "Draggin' The Line", it peaked at #4 for one week on August 8th, 1971...
    As leader of Tommy James and the Shondells he charted nineteen times on the Top 100, seven made the Top 10 with two reaching #1*, "Hanky Panky" for two weeks in 1966 and "Crimson and Clover" for two weeks in 1969...
    Tommy James, born Thomas Gregory Jackson, will celebrate his 71st birthday in ten days on April 29th {2018}...
    * The group just missed having a third #1 record when "Crystal Blue Persuasion" peaked at #2 {for 3 weeks} in 1969, the three weeks it was at #2, the #1 record for those three weeks was "In The Year 2525" by Zager and Evans, and it was the duos' only record to make the Top 100 chart....

    Never heard of this song. Must have never charted. Not nearly as good as his 60's songs.

    Really a great old song from 1979/1980. It's a shame you don't hear it on the radio anymore.

    ChihuahuaboyDH

    No, you don't hear this great song on the radio anymore!!! A favorite of mine from the Spring of 1980 (8th grade - I remember it well!). This was a comeback hit for Tommy James - and a great hit it is, 38 years later!!!

    Bravo, Thomas Gregory Jackson!!!

    Carlos Borrasé Taylor

    Yes my friend!

    So many great songs we don’t hear anymore. Classic rock stations play about 25 songs. Oldies play the same old stuff too. This makes me think of WLS’ heyday in the late 70s. Miss the great radio of those days.

    "Three Times In Love"
    She was all of a lady, you were all of sixteen,
     You were king of the mountain, she was your queen.
     You played in the sunshine, you danced in the rain,
     It was so easy, when love was a game.
     But, everybody's[Chorus:]

     Two times ain't enough, only one shines above,
