Three Dog Night – Eli’s Coming Lyrics

– written by Laura Nyro
– as recorded by Three Dog Night
Eli’s comin’
Eli’s comin’ (Eli’s a-comin’)
Well you better hide your heart, your loving heart
Eli’s a-comin’ and the cards say… A broken heart
Eli’s comin’, hide your heart, girl
Eli’s comin’, hide your heart, girl
Girl, Eli’s a-comin’, you better hide
Girl, Eli’s a-comin’, you better hide
Girl, Eli’s a-comin’, you better hide
Girl, Eli’s comin’, hide your heart, girl (hide it)
You better, better hide your heart
Eli’s comin’, better walk
Walk but you’ll never get away
No, you’ll never get away from the burnin’ a-heartache
I walked to Apollo by the bay
Everywhere I go though, Eli’s a-comin’ (she walked but she never got
Away)
Eli’s a-comin’ (she walked but she never got away)
Eli’s a-comin’ and he’s comin’ to git ya (she walked but… She walked
But…)
Get down on your knees (she walked but she never got away)
Eli’s comin’ (hide it, hide it, hide it)
Girl, Eli’s a-comin’, you better hide
Girl, Eli’s a-comin’, you better hide
Girl, Eli’s a-comin’, you better hide
Girl, Eli’s comin’, hide your heart, girl (hide it)
You better, better hide your heart
Eli’s comin’, better walk
Walk but you’ll never get away
No, you’ll never get away from the burnin’ a-heartache
I walked to Apollo by the bay
Everywhere I go though, Eli’s a-comin’ (she walked but she’ll never get
Away)
Eli’s a-comin’ (she walked but she’ll never get away)
Eli’s a-comin’ and he’s comin’ to git ya (she walked but… She walked
But…)
Get down on your knees (she walked but she’ll never get away)
Get down on your knees
No-no, no-no
Lord, I said no-no, no-no, no-no
(hide it) She can
(hide it) hide it
(hide it) You better
(hide it) Somebody
(hide it) You got t’
(hide it) Oh, my
(hide it) Oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh
