This is Anna's song
I'm making love all night long
Take a bath in milk, and lay on your satin sheets
Laughing, smiling (oh, oh)
Lay a while in (oh, oh)
Chocolate mint candy sweets

They're only cross the way (living across the way) 
(Living across the way, living across the way)
This is Anna's song (this is Anna's song, this is Anna's song)
Yeah, keep on singing all night long (loving my song, loving my song)

Oh, work so hard, see me making dollars (remember make some money)
I know I should for my own good, what's it, husband
Makes you so stubborn, and, oh
Didn't you notice the snow started to fall?
Come, let us sit a while
Just listen To the children laughing and running wild

Yeah, now this is Anna's song 
Hey, baby, hey, baby
Loving you all night long
Let it happen again
And again, and again, baby Anna again
She's a child of the sun, lovingest one of all
Mmm, now this is Anna's song, yeah
Keep on loving me, baby, loving me cross the hall
She can't do no wrong 'cause this is Anna's song
Laugh and chatter to you
Kiss me, Anna dear
Ooh, baby

Hey, Anna, here's your song, yeah
The one that I promised, baby, promised you all along, baby
I knew all the time that I'd find the rhyme
Never have a fear, here it is, my dear
