Stranger to My Happiness

This song is by Sharon Jones & The Dap-Kings and appears on the album Give the People What They Want (2014).

So many times there was a man, he met a girl, took her hand
Told her, "Never will I leave you my love"
But just as soon as he gone again she's flapping in the wind wondering what she must have been thinking of
She's a darling
I've been in and out so many doors
And I've always tried to keep my head
With all the men I've known before
I've seen plenty places
That I'll never see again
I've seen a 100,000 faces
And only called a few my friend

But it's a mystery
Just how you came right in
And stole my heart away
And left me there again

(Feeling like a stranger to my happiness)
To my happiness
(Feeling like a stranger to my happiness)

Now if you think that's a thing that only evil men can bring
Let me skin this cat another way
There was a man who had a plan to settle down with Mary Ann
He said "Darling (darling)
I've been in and out so many door
And I've always tried to keep my head
With all the girls I've known before
I've seen plenty places
That I'll never see again
I've seen a 100,000 faces
And only called a few my friend

But it's a mystery
Just how you came right in
And stole my heart away
And left me there again
I'm feeling

(Feeling like a stranger to my happiness)
To my happiness
(Feeling like a stranger to my happiness)
Feeling like a stranger

I'm feelin' (feelin')
I'm feelin' (feelin')
I'm feelin' (feelin')
I feel like
A stranger
I feel like
A stranger to my happiness
To my happiness
I've seen pretty faces
I've been to a lot of places
I'm feelin'
Yeah I'm feelin'
