"(The) Best of My Love" by the Eagles and the Emotions

As on so many classic rock stations, it's two-fer Tuesday here at Lewd Lyrics. Two awful songs with similar rewrites. First, "The Best of My Love" by the Eagles:

Original lyrics:
Oh sweet darlin', you get the best of my love

Lewd lyrics:
Oh sweet darlin', you got the breasts that I love

Now "Best of My Love" by the Emotions:

Original lyrics:
Whoa whoa, you got the best of my love
(repeat ad nauseam)

Lewd lyrics:
Whoa whoa, you got the breasts that I love
(also repeat ad nauseam)

I'll admit it's not the most inspired reworking, but it's fun to sing the new words over and over in these highly repetitive tunes.
