(Don't take your love from me.)
Don't take your love, baby.
Ohhh.  (Don't take your love away.)
Don't you ever take it away, baby.
Hmmm, mmmm, mmmm.
(Don't take your love from me.) No, no, no.

I really don't think I can make it, baby.
Girl, if you ever go away,
I can't take it, baby, no, no, no.
Girl, I build my whole world around you.
Never go, never say that we're through.
Baby, all I want in life is you, me and you.
Me and you.

(Don't take your love from me.)
Ohhh, don't you, don't ever take it away, baby, no, no, no.
(Don't take your love from me.)
Oh, I got to have your love by my side, baby, baby.
(Don't take your love from me.)
Oh, don't you ever take it away, darling, darling.

Girl, if you really turn my whole life around,
If I see you, baby,
My love comes tumbling down.
There's no words to express how I feel.
You made all of my dreams become real.
And together, I know we can feel a love so strong.
So strong.

(Don't take your love from me.)
Ohhh, my, my, my, my, my, my, my, my, my baby.
Hey.  (Don't take your love from me.)
Don't you ever, don't you ever take your love from me.
I got to have it.
(Don't take your love from me.) I need it.
Oh, baby, baby, baby.

Look at here, will you just sit down for a minute?
I am going to turn this light down.
What I'm going to ask you, it won't take long.
You see, I didn't listen to mama.
Daddy didn't tell me what to do.
My sister says I'm crazy.
My brother, ha, just laughs at me.
All my friends say that I'm a fool.
Baby, I feel like I can't have a life if I can't have it with you.
I know I couldn't adjust to any other life.
Baby, please don't take your love from me.
I know a man ain't supposed to cry.
Baby, if you leave me, I swear I don't know what I'll do.
Please don't take your love from me.

Ohhh.  (Don't take your love from me.)
Don't you, don't you, don't you take it from me, baby.
(Don't take your love from me.)
No, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no.
I got to, I got to have it, baby.
(Don't take your love from me.) Yeah, yeah, yeah.
