How sweet it is to be loved by you, yes, baby, ooh
How sweet it is to be loved by you

Ooh, baby, I needed the shelter of someone's arms
And there you were
I needed someone to understand my ups and downs
And there you were

With sweet love and devotion
Deeply touching my emotions

I wanna stop (stop) and thank you, baby
I wanna stop (stop) and thank you, baby, hey now

How sweet it is to be loved by you, oh, baby
How sweet it is to be loved by you, yes, it is

Close my eyes at night
And wonder what would I be without you in my life
Everything was just a bore
All the things I did, seems I've done 'em before
But you brightened up all my days
With a love so sweet in so many ways

I wanna stop (stop) and thank you, baby
I wanna stop (stop) and thank you, baby, yeah

How sweet it is to be loved by you, oh, yes, it is, baby
How sweet it is to be loved by you, yes, it is, baby

You were better to me than I've been to myself
For me, there's you and nobody else

Stop (stop) and thank you, baby
I wanna stop (stop) and thank you, baby
Oh, how sweet it is to be loved by you, tell the truth, baby
How sweet it is to be loved by you, well, it's like sugar in my soul
How sweet it is to be loved by you, oh, yes, it is
