THERE WILL NEVER BE ANY OTHER FOR ME BUT YOU

Live 19 Sep 1996 version


[Spoken intro:] (chuckles) I've got a friend of mine who's gonna be married pretty soon (chuckles). And uh... so this for her. It's kind of– it's a bit on an unusual tribute to uh... uh, I guess it's a tribute to marriage, even though I'm not sure it's gonna sound that way (chuckles). Uh, never done this before. Uh... wait, maybe, maybe the song completely sucks. Please hold your applause (chuckles). Anyway, let's try it. I'm gonna do this for you, it sort of explains the... the... it's self-explanatory.

Princess Di did find another man
Prince– Prince Charles may wanna live in another woman's underpants
I know what he feels like, I've been there too
But there will never be any other for me but you

Will Elizabeth Taylor get married again, buddy, that's the question
Poor Larry Fortenski got busted on his Harley for illegal weapons possession
I've been that down, I've been that crazy, I've been that much of a fool
But there'll never be any other for me but you

Man, a love that's real is a love that's hard
Like a pit bull on your ass in a very small backyard
A love that's hard can be a love that's true
I swear there'll never be any other for me but you

Elvis and Priscilla, Jim Baker and Tammy Fay
Donald and Ivana once swore their love forever any day
I said those words, yes, I meant 'em too
But I swear there'll never be any other for me but you
No baby, there will never be any other for me but you

Whoaaa whoa-whoa whoa-whoa whoa
