My baby he don't talk sweet
He ain't got much to say
But he loves me, loves me, loves me
I know that he loves me anyway

And maybe he don't dress fine
But I don't really mind
'Cause every time he pulls me near
I just want to cheer

Let's hear it for the boy
Let's give the boy a hand
Let's hear it for my baby
You know you gotta understand

Whoa, maybe he's no Romeo
But he's my lovin' one-man show
Whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa
Let's hear it for the boy

My baby may not be rich
He's watchin' every dime
But he loves me, loves me, loves me
We always have a real good time

And maybe he sings off key
But that's alright by me
'Cause what he does he does so well
Makes me wanna yell

Let's hear it for the boy
Ah, let's give the boy a hand
Let's hear it for my baby
You know you gotta understand

Whoa, maybe he's no Romeo
But he's my lovin' one man show
Whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa
Let's hear it for the boy

'Cause every time he pulls me near
I just wanna cheer

Let's hear it for the boy
Ah, let's give the boy a hand
Let's hear it for my baby
You know you gotta understand, whoa

Maybe he's no Romeo
But he's my lovin' one man show
Whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa
Let's hear it for the boy (Let's hear it for the boy)
Let's hear it for my man (Let's hear it for my baby)
Let's hear it for my baby (Let's hear it for the boy)

(Let's hear it for my baby)
(Let's hear it for the boy) 
Let's hear it for my man
(Let's hear it for my baby)
(Let's hear it for the boy)
Put your hands together
(Let's hear it for my baby)
(Let's hear it for the boy)
Let's hear it for my boy
(Let's hear it for my baby)
Let's hear it for my man
(Let's hear it for the boy)
Ooh
(Let's hear it for my baby)
Let's hear it for my man, yeah
