If you want my lovin'
If you really do 
Don't be afraid baby 
Just ask me
You know I'm gonna give it to you

Oh and I do declare
I want to see you with it
Stretch out your arms little boy, 
You're gonna get it 
'Cause I love you 

Ain't no doubt about it
Baby I love you, 
I love you, I love you
I love you, baby I love you

If you feel you want to kiss me
Go right ahead I don't mind
All you got to do is 
Snap your fingers and I'll come running
I ain't lying, I ain't lying

What you want little boy 
You know you got it
I'd deny my own self 
Before I see you without it 

'Cause I love you 
Ain't no doubt about it
Baby I love you, I love you, I love you
I love you, baby I love you

Someday you might want to run away
And leave me sittin' here to cry 
But if it's all the same to you baby 
I'm gonna stop you from sayin' goodbye

Baby I love you 
Baby I need ya 
Said I want ya
Got to have you baby 
Don't let your neighbors
Tell you I don't want you
Don't let yo low-down friends
Tell ya I don't need ya
I love ya
