Kenny Rogers - Laura (What's He Got That I Ain't Got) Lyrics



Laura, hold these hands and count my fingers
Laura, touch these lips you once desired
Lay your head upon my chest and hear my heartbeat
Gently run your fingers through my hair

Touch these ears that listened to your wishes
Most of them, fulfilled and that's a lot
Let your soft gentle hands caress my body
And then tell me what he's got that I ain't got

Tell me what he's got that I can't give you
Must be something I was born without
You took an awful chance to be with another man
So tell me what he's got that I ain't got

Laura, see these walls that I built for you
Laura, see this carpet that I laid
See those fancy curtains on the windows
Touch those satin pillows on your bed

Laura, count the dresses in your closet
Note the name upon the checkbook in your bag
And if there's time before I pull this trigger
Then tell me what he's got that I ain't got

Tell me what he's got that I can't give you
Must be something I was born without
You took an awful chance to be with another man
So tell me what he's got that I ain't got
Tell me what he's got that I ain't got
Laura, what's he got that I ain't got?

    Wow
    A Kenny Rogers song I've never heard
    Beautiful powerful sad sad sad

    Adultery is always wrong

    "Laura (What's He Got That I Ain't Got)"

    Laura, hold these hands and count my fingers
    Laura, touch these lips you once desired
    Lay your head upon my chest and hear my heartbeat
    Gently run your fingers through my hair

    Touch these ears that listened to your wishes
    Most of them, fulfilled and that's a lot
    Let your soft gentle hands caress my body
    And then tell me what he's got that I ain't got

    Tell me what he's got that I can't give you
    Must be something I was born without
    You took an awful chance to be with another man
    So tell me what he's got that I ain't got

    Laura, see these walls that I built for you
    Laura, see this carpet that I laid
    See those fancy curtains on the windows
    Touch those satin pillows on your bed

    Laura, count the dresses in your closet
    Note the name upon the checkbook in your bag
    And if there's time before I pull this trigger
    Then tell me what he's got that I ain't got

    Tell me what he's got that I can't give you
    Must be something I was born without
    You took an awful chance to be with another man
    So tell me what he's got that I ain't got
    Tell me what he's got that I ain't got
    Laura, what's he got that I ain't got?
