I don't want nobody
If I can't have you
Oh, I can't love nobody
Unless I'm loving you

The way you hug me
The way you squeeze me
The way you kiss me

If I can't have you

I can't talk to nobody
Unless I'm talking to you
I don't wanna hold nobody
Unless I'm holding you

I can't be kissing nobody
Unless I'm kissing you
I just don't
I just don't
I just don't want to be bothered with nobody
Unless I'm bothered with you

The way you hug me
The way you squeeze me
The way you kiss me

If I can't have you
