Lyrics (fan transcription):

she had long brown hair
all down her breast
made me think about my future
made me think about my past
she was so pretty
as pretty as can be
and I thought, my god,
why shouldn't it be me?
oh god, why shouldn't it be me?

her skin was tight
her manner was free
she gave me that look that seemed to say
hey you, look at me
her smile was crooked and good
as she sucked her capri
and I thought, my god,
why shouldn't it be me?
oh, come on...come on, god
why shouldn't it be me?

her body was free...
wanna bet so's her love

don't tell me what's proper
anyone can see
I wasn't even her first
so don't blame it on me
she was so pretty
as pretty as can be
and I thought, my god,
why shouldn't it be me?
oh, come on, this once...lord
why shouldn't it be me?

her body was free...
wanna bet so's her love...

you all read the bible, right?
you know what the bible says?
I'll tell you what it says,
don't put a stumbling block
in front of someone who can't see
don't put a beautiful body
in front of someone who's hungry
she was so pretty
as pretty as can be
and I thought, my god,
why shouldn't it be me?
oh, come on...come on, lord
why shouldn't it be me?

her body was free...
wanna bet so's her love...

not "one big source of love"

it's "wanna bet so's her love"

but anyway, love the song
