See those flowers, they need love
See the bluebirds, they need love
See the babies, they need love
All God's children, oh need love
See your mother, she needs love
And my father, he needs love
That's true baby and I need love too

See those raindrop rivers, they need love
And the mountains and the valleys, they need love
God forgive us and send us more love from above
Don't find good love every day, we ought to think
Before we throw good love away

(Ah-oh-oh-oh)
Doesn't matter, what you are
A thief or a beggar or even a superstar
As long as you were made by God above
Oh, I know, I know
You need love, we need love

(Oh) baby, oh, I need love
(Oh) I need your love, (I'm standin' here)
Oh baby, standin' in the need of love, I need love

I need it, I got to have it, baby
Oh, can't you see that I'm standin' in the need?

I'm still here 'cause I need love
I'm still with you dear
'Cause I need your love
(And I know) and I know, oh yes I know
Though you feel you don't need lovin' (you need lovin')
You still need lovin' too (they need lovin')
(We need love, we need love) oh yes you do 

(It don't matter) no, it doesn't matter what you are
A thief or a beggar or a superstar
As long as the Lord made you from above
I know, I know
You were made for love ('cause love is what you need and understandin')
Oh, understandin'

(You were made for love, baby) you were made for love, sweet understandin' (you)
(You were made for love, baby) why can't we see we were made for love?
(Why is it so hard for us today to see the real) 
Why can't we see, (you, were made from love)
Made for love (talkin' about love, real things)
You were made of love (you were made of love, by love for love) 
(Right) You were made to love baby 
(What's the only thing that's gonna get us together?) 
(Love's the only thing that's gonna make this cold-blooded world alright) 
Made for love (what're we talkin' about?)
Love, love, love, love
Oh Baby
(What do you think we're singin' about?)
(For the love of Jesus, let's do it)
Sweet love

I need a whole lot of love, sugar
I need a whole lot of sweet love
It's a fact
(Who?) Even the slimy seal needs love
(Who?) All of the folks in jail need love
(Who?) Even a mean old man needs love
