Oh little Jeannie
You got so much love, little Jeannie
And you take it where it strikes
(And) give it to the likes of me
Oh little Jeannie
She got so much love, little Jeannie
So I see you when I can
You make me all a man can be

And I want you to be my acrobat
I want you to be my lover
Oh, there were others who would treat you cruel
And, oh, oh Jeannie
You were always someone's fool

Little Jeannie
You got so much time, little Jeannie
Though you've grown beyond your years
You still retain the fears of youth
Oh little Jeannie
You got so much time, little Jeannie
But you're burning it up so fast
Searching for some lasting truth

And I want you to be my acrobat
I want you to be my lover
Oh there were others who would treat you cruel
But, oh, oh Jeannie
I will always be your fool

And I want you to be my acrobat
I want you to be my lover
Oh, there were others, and I've known quite a few
But, oh, oh Jeannie
I'm still in love with you

Stepped into my life from a bad dream
Making the life that I had seem
Suddenly shiny and new
Oh Jeannie
I'm so in love with you

Stepped into my life from a bad dream

Stepped into my life from a bad dream
