One can talk about being in love
Two can say how it really feels

Two can make that wish come true (Yeah!)

Two can make the lights shine through

[Chorus:]
It takes two, baby
It takes two, baby

Just take two

It takes two, baby
It takes two, baby
To make a dream come true
Just take two

[Chorus]

Just take two, just take two

(Ooh!) One can go out to a movie, lookin' for a special treat
Two can make that single movie somethin' really kinda sweet
(Yeah!) One can take a walk in the moonlight, thinkin' that it's really nice
But two walkin' hand-in-hand is like addin' a pinch of spice

(Yeah!)

[Chorus]
