I can’t decide to get out of the rain
I wasn’t thinking I’d be staying
But when you pulled me off the doorstep
Somehow I knew I’d end up paying
Somehow I knew I’d end up paying
Yes it’s me that does the paying

‘Cause I love you too much
I can’t help it if I love you too much
It’s so much more than just a slip of the crutch

I can’t help it if I love you
I can’t help it if I love you

You call it morbid fascination
I call it nasty education
Friends of mine they all snicker and sneer
They're all laughing while I cry in my beer
Ah-huh, I never give in
I get discouraged but I never give in

‘Cause I love you too much
I can’t help it ‘cause I love you too much
You've got me dizzy like a martini lunch

I can’t help it if I love you
I can’t help it if I love you

I've come to tell you that I’m sticking it out
I can’t fight at this obsession
You give me something I know nothing about
Still there’s madness in my method
I can’t fight my own obsession
You can call it, call it object lesson

I love you too much
I can’t help it ‘cause I love you too much
It’s so much more than just a 
slip of the crutch

I can’t help it ‘cause I love you

Love you too much
I can’t help it ‘cause I love you too much
You've got me dizzy like a martini lunch

I can’t help it ‘cause I love you

Love you too much

I can’t help it, I just can’t help it
I can’t help it, I just can’t help it
I can’t help it ‘cause I love you

I can’t help it, I can’t help it, I just can’t help it
I can’t help it, I just can’t help it
I can’t help it ‘cause I love you

I love you too much

This is an old rocker - it's very Rolling Stones. I left the vocal but I changed a couple of lines 'cause I got bored with the repetition in the lyrics. You'd never know which lines they were, though. Keith added a few bits here and there.
- Mick Jagger, 2011
