The love bug done bit me
Didn't mean for him to get me
Woo, get up in the morning
And I'm filled with desire
No, no, I can't stop the fire
Love is real live wire
Oh, it's a burning sensation
Far beyond imagination

Love is like an itching in my heart, tearing it all apart
Just an itching in my heart
And, baby, I can't scratch it

Keeps me sighing, oh
Keeps me yearning
No mama can't help me
No daddy can't help me
I've been bitten by the love bug
And I need some information
To help me out of this situation
Now, when you're ill you take a pill
When you're thirsty, drink your fill
What you gonna do, oh yeah
When love gets a hold, a hold on you
Love is like an itching in my heart
And, baby, I can't scratch it

Love is a nagging irritation
Causing my heart complication
Love is a growing infection
And I don't know the correction
Got me rocking and a-reeling
And I can't shake the feeling

Love is like an itching in my heart, tearing it all apart
Just an itching in my heart
Baby, I can't scratch it

Keeps me sighing, oo
Keeps me yearning
Keeps me burning
Keeps me tossing
Keeps me turning
Keeps me yearning
I've been bitten by the love bug
And I need some information
To help me out of this situation
Love is a nagging irritation
Causing my heart complication
I've been bitten by the love bug
