​Optional Thing

This song is by Wes King and appears on the album The Robe (1993).

You know you hit me from the blind side, baby
I wasn't looking at all
I tried to dance and do the rope-a-dope, baby
But I was destined to fall
Well that's the best fall I ever took
I can do without plenty of things, baby
Like lots of money and the problems it brings

But your love is not an optional thing
It's not a February fling, no
It's not good for a man to be alone
And your love is not an optional thing

You got a figure like an hourglass, baby
You just look better with time
You got a mind like a steel trap, baby
You're quick to find the bottom line
Here's the best line I ever said
I do, I will, so help me, God

Your love is not an optional thing
It's not a February fling, no
It's not good for a man to be alone
And your love is not an optional thing

I'm so glad
I'm so glad our love overcame
I'm your man
And I'll protect you in the pouring rain
A typhoon, tornado, in a hurricane

No, your love is not an optional thing
It's not a February fling, no
It's not good for a man to be alone
And your love

No, your love is not an optional thing
It's not a February fling, no
It's not good for a man to be alone
And your love

No, your love is not an optional thing
It's not a February fling, no, no, no
It's not good for a man to be alone
And your love, no, your love...
