Soulklassieker du jour: Finders keepers

Wat je vindt mag je houden – General Johnson in een van zijn gedaanten, de langstmeegaande, als frontman van de Chairmen of the Board. De laatste uitvaller die als zodanig genoemd wordt in verband met de Zwarte Lijst.

I found the love
You threw away
Now you realize
You made a mistake

But now she’s mine
And we’re doing fine
You can’t steal her love
No use in trying

Your eyes may shine
Your teeth may grit
But none of this love
Are you gonna get

[Refrein:] Finder’s keepers, losers weepers
I found the love you lost
And I’m gonna keep her
Finders keepers, losers weepers
I found the love you lost
And I’m gonna keep her

This love of mine is super fine
Lord knows I’m glad
I made her mine

You treat her bad
You know you made her sad
Now you realize
The good thing you had

But it’s too late
Don’t even try
Never gonna give her up
And I ain’t lying

[Refrein]

Your eyes may shine
Your teeth may grit
But none of this love
Are you gonna get


Finders keepers, Chairmen of the Board, 1973
