Summertime Life
Salgado/Phillips

In the park it’s a family day
Blankets laid out in the lawn and shade
And I’m looking for a cool place by the riverside
Down a way where the stream divides
There’s a place my babe and me can hide
And we’ll sit and rub our noses
Just like eskimoses
And it’s 95 degrees outside

That summertime life
Yeah, summer is so alright
Hot days and a clear starry night
That’s a summertime life
Yeah, summer is so alright
Hot days and clear starry nights
That’s a summertime vibe

I call my girl
Tell her let’s get gone
The job description when the heat is on
Is to cruise the wide countryside
With the windows down, Awww yeah
And down the way where the road divides
There’s a place where we can hide
And we’ll sit and hold our hands
And come to understand that
Life is love and love is right

Chorus

Porch swings and lemonade
And all the joy that it brings on a sunny day

I Sleep With the TV On
Salgado/Walker/Stewart

I hang my head and I cry
Out of left field, I was so suprised
A dear John letter told me goodbye
This house is so lonely
Now that you’ve gone
Every night I sleep with my TV on

I miss you most about four a.m.
That’s when lonliness starts creepin in
Blue shadows on the wall
Surround me again
My home is so lonely now that you’ve gone
And every night I sleep with the TV on

I sleep with my TV on
All night movies, all night long
It’s cold comfort, it’ll have to do
Cuz it’s all I’ve got, till I get over you

My home is so lonely now that you’ve gone
And every night I sleep with the TV on

Till the anthem sounds
And the patterns fade
Into a snowy dream
Of you comin back my way

Chorus

Funny Man
Salgado/Scroggins


I was out of town
She was taking in a show
Saw the kind of man she’d never seen before
Who could tell a good joke
And make the crowd roar
She was insincere about the two of us
She had everything
But it wasn’t enough
So the funny man gave her a show
Had her screamin more, more

Funny man
He made her laugh, something I’d been trying to do
If I could make her smile, I’d be a funny man too
But funny man ain’t funny when he takes your love from you

I used to make her laugh
Have her rollin on the floor
Then hold her in my arms and say I love you so
And that’s a healin thing, that every heart needs
But my love was weak
And his lies were strong
Said a few one liners
No it didn’t take long
They did their jive little dance
And then they were gone

Chorus

Wiggle Outta This
Boe/Salgado/McClain

Ever since you were two, you’ve been getting your way
Promised a pillow til your dyin day
And daddy held your hand while he walked you to school
He never understood that he was raisin a fool

Ya told me things were better, never be the same
But here we go again, girl
Let’s see you wiggle outta this…Let’s see you wiggle outta this one

Now I don’t mind a girl who needs a little more
But stretch it to thin I’m gonna show ya the door
I saw you on the corner with some other guy
Now you’re crawlin back to me ya gotta tear in your eye

Your giving me your double talk and flat-out lies
Your bubble’s bout to pop girl
Let’s see you wiggle outta this one

A blue carnation hangin on your chest
Clothes are all the best and you look so good
A diamond studded ring on your little toe
Made me wanna know could I talk to you
Sometimes the dream is better than the truth
An empty box all tied up in bows
Ya came ya saw ya put on your show
Ya told me that ya loved me now I know
Come on and wiggle outta this

A blue carnation……….
Come on and say ya can’t live without me
Girl you don’t nothin bout me
Come on and wiggle outta this
Let’s see you wiggle outta this

Why I Don't Care
Salgado/Boe

Sit, open up your ears, hear me one more time
I know I’m about to lose what I thought was mine
Please, open up your eyes, try and visualize
It isn’t hard to see that the end is near

Why don’t I care, why don’t I care
Why don’t I care that your gone

Deep down inside my heart, there isn’t any pain
Your shot of novacaine left me numb on you
Time was never on our side we never even lied
We only tried to love and then the bad thing died
Ohhh the bad thing died

Why don’t I care, why don’t I care
Why don’t I care that your gone

Take anything we got whether mine or not
All our love had bought nothin’s left to share
Nothin’s left baby

Why don’t I care, why don’t I care
Why don’t I care that your gone for good
Why don’t I care, why don’t I care
Why should I lie when I just don’t care

Sorry Don't Mean Nuthin'
Salgado/Boe

I can’t be with you, somethin you should know
The tighter we get, the more I let go
Your mind is healthy, your body is strong
I can take a good thing, and make it all wrong

Nothin personal, I’ve got myself to blame
I need to feel something, might as well be pain

Don’t tell me your sorry
Sorry don’t mean nuthin, sorry don’t mean nuthin ta me
I ain’t lookin for no pity, yes, it feels so right, feels so right to bleed

Pain makes me feel so alive
Fits me well, it’s just my size
I’ve had my share, share if I can
Pain’s just part of the master plan

I wasn’t sleeping when you up and left
I felt your kiss, and then you got dressed
A smile on my face, because I know
I get to feed the monster another piece of my soul

Don’t give me all is calm in the eye of a hurricane
I want the edge of bad weather
I need to stand in the shoutin rain

Chorus
Don’t tell me your sorry….
Blues is just part of the plan

I don’t fight the feeling, I just let it be
Cause I do more livin drownin in a troubled sea
Ain’t no use in cryin, it’s not about right or wrong
What I learned in sorrow, I can teach in song

And when my heart is bleeding, I’m not one to complain
Sometimes the joy of livin comes from the joy of pain

Chorus
Don’t tell me your sorry….

Sing My Song
Salgado/James

I don’t know why lovers fight
I don’t know why trouble comes out at night
I only see what’s around me….yeah
So I sing my song, sing my song for you

Sing my song, when I’m lonely baby I sing my song
Sing my song, when I’m lonely baby I sing my song

I sing, sing my song…

If my money’s gone what’s it to me
I’m rich already with the sound of a melody
There’s a vibration going on
So turn it up a little louder let’s sing a song

Sing my song, sing my song for the one I love
Sing my song, ohhh baby, when I’m lonely girl
Sing my song for you

I sing, sing my song…

The trouble with everything I know
Some things are real and some things are just for show
But really it don’t mean a thing to me
Well none of that stuff don’t matter
When I’m deep in your love…..yeah

I sing, sing my song…

Salgado/Robb/Kuratli

If you’re gettin it I want to know

If your gettin it tell me so, tell me so

Now throw it on back ta me

Beneath the Silver Moon
Salgado/Helms/Fontaine

Now here I stand under a bright silver moon
I know that love will come to me one day soon
With all my soul I pray that love will come my way
A special one to have and hold until my life is done

They say change is good in everyone’s life
Well who are they and can they find me
A love that treats me right
It’s not up to them or to you
Ta find me a love that’s true
So I’ll leave it up to my heart and the silver moon

Underneath it all I know when love calls
We’ll dance the night away
And we’ll both know as we’re touched by the glow
It was meant ta be this way
Romancin you under the bright silver moon

Now we, we weren’t made to live life alone
So take my hand come on with me
Let’s give our love a home
And if love should fade and we lose sight
Just look up into the moonlight
Romancin you with all my heart beneath the silver moon

Sweet Jesus Buddha the Doctor
Salgado/Baumann//Huber/Ahamer/Marageter/Franzmeier

When I was young in my younger days
When I was knee high to a duck
My daddy said son women want it all
It’s never gonna be enough
Then I met you I thought my dreams came true
Everything was so complete
But here you are you’re walkin out the door
Gone and turned the tables on me

Sweet Jesus Buddha The Doctor
Somebody help me
Sweet Jesus Buddha The Doctor
Love is never guaranteed

Someone said, with a brain in their head
What doesn’t kill ya is gonna make ya strong
Then put your money on me I’ve got the miseries
Hell I can take superman on
With every trick in the book that sexy look
Gave me a heart attack
It’s better to love and live then never loved at all
Now who in the hell said that

Sweet Jesus Buddha The Doctor
Somebody help me
Sweet Jesus Buddha The Doctor
Love is never guaranteed

I work my body to the bone to get where I am
And I about to give it on up
I know my rights if you wanna fight
I’m wishin you the best of luck
Gave ya all my money my fancy cars
I gave ya everything ya need
A little respect is justified
Why ya packin up to leave

Sweet Jesus Buddha The Doctor
Somebody help me
Sweet Jesus Buddha The Doctor
Love is never guaranteed

That’s right, love is never guaranteed
Ain’t no guarantees out there

Bitter Tears
Salgado/Robb

Preachers tellin me that
God never plays a mean trick
But not until my deathbed
Will I make some sense of it

The rich take limousines
The poor take thorazine
It’s a steady battle
Trying to keep my own street clean

The boys in the backroom
The ones callin all the shots
Sittin there deciding
Who will live and who will not

Daddy’s hard earned money
Puttin mannish boy through school
Lord, ain’t nothin worse
Than another educated fool

Little Charmer
Salgado/McClain/Phillips/Boe

Whoa I saw a stranger in the city
And he was high as he could be
Saw my pity and got angry
Said I wasn’t always what you see
I used to be a Casanova
Til the little charmer put a spell on me

I used to love em and leave em
So many girls I can’t remember their names
She came and took my soul
I’m under her control
Little charmer yes indeed
She put a spell on me
Little Charmer
Whoa I ask how’d you let it happen
If you were such a Romeo
Said I didn’t think she’d be trouble
But then how was I to know
They say that she’s a gypsy
Some kind of Cajun Queen
That Little Charmer so enchanting
Gone and put a spell on me

Well now I know it was meant to be
The Little Charmer knew you see
She’s stronger in a game I played so well
When she gave her love to me
My playboy days were history
And I haven’t got the power to change the spell

You reap just what you sow
When you’re a small time Romeo
Little Charmer yes indeed
She put a spell on me….
I’m a victim of your game
And I’ll never be the same
Little Charmer yes indeed
Put a mojo on me

Heartless
Salgado/Cousins/McClain/Burns

I can’t take it no more
Cause nothing seems real
The more that I hurt
The less that you feel
Beyond the call of duty
I’ve done everything I can
All my love in vain I sacrificed
You say you want your medicine
You don’t need your man
Who’s turned you on and made you cold as ice

Why you wanna be so heartless baby
Why you wanna be so cold
Why you wanna be so heartless
When you know I love you so
I gave you my devotion
Gave you everything I own
Tell me why you wanna be so heartless baby
Why you wanna be so cold

I called you at work today
They said that you’d gone
So I stopped by your house
Ain’t nobody home
I don’t understand it
You used to be so sweet
Now you’re just giving me grief
I guess you found a new love
That you love more than me
That’s getting high and running in the streets, baby

Why you wanna be so heartless baby
Why you wanna be so cold
Why you wanna be so heartless
When you know I love you so
I gave you my devotion
Gave you everything I own
Tell me why you wanna be so heartless baby
Why you wanna be so cold

Oh girl you better stop trippin….
I don’t understand it
How could I love you if you don’t love yourself
I’m playin the blues right here
Over and over I keep comin back
You think I would learn from my mistakes
I can’t hold out much longer
Girl that’s a fact
I hope that I’m not too late

Why you wanna be so heartless baby
Why you wanna be so cold
Why you wanna be so heartless
When you know I love you so
I gave you my devotion
Gave you everything I own
Tell me why you wanna be so heartless baby
Why you wanna be so cold

She Told Me That Too
Salgado/Miller/McClain/Cousins

Well my girl and I were talkin
And I got a bit o news
We had something in common
And the common thing was you
She was lonely when I met her
Said she wants a man like me
Said we’d look sharp together
And we’d make good company

She told me that too (Did she say that she wants you)
She told me that too (Did she say that she cares)
She told me that too (Did she say that she needs you)
She told me that too (Well, she told me, she told me that too)

Well the cards were on the table
So let’s play the drama through
Is every line she fed to me
The same she fed you
Like comin out from Hollywood
And bein misunderstood
Like never lovin a man before
Until now she thinks she could

She told me that too (Did she say that she wants you)
She told me that too (Did she say that she cares)
She told me that too (Did she say that she needs you)
She told me that too (Well, she told me, she told me that too)

I just saw her and she’s leavin
She ain’t comin back no more
She said she played the both of us
All’s fair in love and war
She’s not ashamed
She said she had her fun
She said we had it too
She said she wanted me
Did she say she wanted you?

(Did she say that she loves you) I gotta know right now
(Did she tell you that she cares) Does she love you more than me
(Did she say that she needs you) I want you to talk to me right now
(Did she tell you that she cares) Talk to me Steve

More Than You Can Chew
Salgado/Robb/Minnieweather/Mazzocco

Standin there with your hands on your hips
Got mean words restin on your lips
You better think before you jump too quick
Better listen up and watch
Watch what you do
Cause woman you’re gonna bite off
More than you can chew
More than you can chew...
A good luck charm is a lion’s tooth
Got meat on the bone shakin loose
Better listen up and watch
Watch what you do
Cause woman you’re gonna bite off
More than you can chew
More than you can chew...
A three legged dog with a tail down low
I may be getting old but the young girls know
Better listen up and watch
Watch what you do
Cause woman you’re gonna bite off
More than you can chew
More than you can chew…
More than you can swallow
More than you can handle now baby

Got A Bad Feelin' (Gonna Be A Good Night)
Salgado/McClain/Robb/Tappendorf

Well I was up this morning and I feel elated
I feel like forgivin everyone I hated
Well I’m steady getting over from being put under
Lucks hit me like lightnin I can still hear the thunder
Well I got a premonition and I know that I’m right

Got a bad feelin it’s gonna be a good night

I left my home
Started walkin down the street
SHIT – a twenty dollar bill
Was lyin at my feet
I bent down, I picked it up
I didn’t miss a beat
Good fortune struck again
The feelin’s mighty sweet
But somethin’s gotta give
Things are goin too right

I got a bad feelin
Gonna be a good night

Been invited to a party in the hills of the city
Lots of single women there and all of them are pretty
Chances of me meetin one I think are next to none
But I’m steady getting hit on it’s my day in the sun
Well the partys getting crazy there’s gonna be a riot

Got a bad feelin it’s gonna be a good night

Yah it scares me
When I’m outta control
Bustin down the walls
Just lettin go
Partyin is cool
But there’s a price to be paid
I hope nobody’s dyin by the end of the day

Well the crib is really rockin
When a voice behind me says
Let me take you somewhere private
I’ll make it cherry red
So we step out to the back
When I stop and turn around
L.A. is shakin
And the place is fallin down
So we run and duck for cover
And the house rolls out of sight

I had a bad feelin
Gonna be a good night

You Love Me and I Don't Blame You
Salgado/Mazzocco/Halverson

You check up on me when I’m not at home
You think I need a chaperon
You call me every ten minutes on the phone
You say you’re never going to leave me alone
You love me and I don’t blame you
You love me and I don’t blame you

You say you need me, without me you fall
You say I’m your strength, your backbone,
your wall
You said to me you can’t live alone
You made me your life and gave up on your own
You love me and I don’t blame you
You love me and I don’t blame you

I believe in you
More than you believe in yourself
You don’t realize how much I give
Quit tryin to live my life cuz you
Got your own life to live baby
You got your own life to live
So go live it
You love me and I don’t blame you
You love me, a yes you do
And I don’t blame you

See you in the morning and then again at night
You look to me to make your world alright
You tell me you love me
But I wonder if it’s true
Cuz all you want is what I do for you
You love me and I don’t blame you
You love me yah and I don’t blame you

Now don’t hang on my shirt tail girl
Independence is my world
Your co-dependent can’t you see
I’m gonna cut you loose and set you free
You gotta do what your gonna do
If you’re gonna go do it
Then you might as well get off your butt and do it
Yah Yah Yah

You love me and I don’t blame you

I Musta' Been Nuts
Salgado/Mazzocco/Halverson

It started easy enough back in ’79
There was high in the bag
Still good in the times
I was a hound dog, ya all
Hot on a trail
Sniffin up lines
Waggin my tail
Cuttin a fool
Actin like a kid
I musta been nuts
T’done the things that I did

Well I made and lost my money
I paid my dues
And I wasted all my options
Never had the sight to choose
Well the spoon was in the bag
Scars ran up my arm
My life was a wasteland
Dreams had lost their charm
My heart had held a fear
Found me shakin where I hid
I musta been nuts
T’done the things that I did

I musta been nuts
I musta been nuts
T’done the things that I did

Well the spoon was in the bag
Scars ran up my arm
My life was a wasteland
Dreams had lost their charm
My heart had held a fear
Found me shakin where I hid
I musta been nuts
T’done the things that I did

Something reached into my soul
As I sang a mournful tune
For a friend of mine that died
I might follow soon
Said I could be spared
The final pain he’d known
Life and death it’s up to me
Choice will be my own
I locked a hold onto the light
As they closed his coffin lid
I musta been nuts
T’done the things that I did

I musta been nuts
I said, I musta been nuts
I musta been nuts
T’done the things that I did

I Shouted Your Name
Salgado/Boe/McClain

It was on the thirteenth
A Friday at that
I couldn’t sleep a wink
So I laid on my back
I stared into space
A flash in my head
Of the look on your face
Why you loved him instead

I shouted your name
And I got no reply
I shouted your name
Now I understand why

From that moment on
Our love wasn’t the same
My heart told the truth
And I shouted your name

Well the night before
You said we need to talk
Then morning came
And I called you up
I could tell by your voice
My premonition was true
He was there when we spoke girl
You had just gotten through
I shouted your name
And I got no reply
I shouted your name
And I understood why

From that moment on
Our love wasn’t the same
My heart told the truth
And I shouted your name

All the time we’ve invested
The laughter and the tears
You’ve known him but a week now girl
And you tell me it seems like years?

I said you’ve got to come over
I must see your face
Come to an understanding
And state our case
You came into my arms
When I opened the door
But it’s different now
It doesn’t feel like before

I shouted your name
And I got no reply
I shouted your name
I understand why

From that moment on
Our love wasn’t the same
My heart told the truth
And I shouted, I shouted your name
Hey I did

I’m gonna miss you girl
In the middle of the night, yah
Squeezing you tight
Rocking you right
Best wishes to you
Best wishes to you baby
Can’t you hear me shouting out your name
One time real hard

Boppin' That Lovin' Stuff
Salgado

Too Loose
Salgado

I’ve been drinkin heavy
I rolled my car
I flashed my money
In crowded bars
I flirt with women
I don’t even know
They get disgusted
Get up and go

I’m too loose
I’m too loose
Loose like this is a waste of time
I need me a woman to keep me in line
I need me a woman to keep me in line

I got fired from my job
I don’t have a cent
Lord the landlord’s knockin
He says he wants the rent
I used to have a woman
I used to own a house
I’d still have both of them
If it wasn’t for my big mouth

I’m too loose
Loose like this is a waste of time
I need me a woman to keep me in line
I need me a woman to keep me in line right now

Since my woman left me
My life fell apart
So I drink Wild Turkey
To kill the pain in my heart
People say "Chill out bro"
You better watch your step
It won’t be long Salgado
You’ve got a warrant for your arrest

I’m too loose
Loose like this is a waste of time
I need me a woman to keep me in line
I need me a woman to keep me in line right now
I’m too loose
I’m high as a Georgia pine
You know people say "Curtis, you got a monkey on your back"
Nah, I don’t have a monkey on my back
I got the whole damn zoo on my back
Sure enough I do

I’m too loose
Loose like this is a waste of time
I need me a woman to keep me in line
I need me a woman to keep me in line right now

At Least I Didn’t Do That

I’ve been the shadow of a man I used to be
I watched you hold your breath while you prayed for me
Found the good inside, and set it free
To walk with you in stride
I listened while you told me about your world view
Righteous was your claim, but you abused
You left your kids, your home – for someone new
And you preach about wrong and right, yeah

Chorus:
At least I didn’t do that – oh no – at least I didn’t do that – no
At least I didn’t do that – I would do a thing like that – no
At least I didn’t do – I ain’t like you – at least I didn’t do that

I’ve seen the devil buy a shot for a dying a man
Held a spoon to the flame at the other end
And that’s a game I couldn’t win
So I made myself a life
You manipulated men for opportunity
You played Russian Roulette for their sympathy
But the game you play is up you see
Cause I know the gun is empty – yeah

Chorus:
At least I didn’t do that … etc.

I pulled your letter from a box the other day
But that’s not the way you communicate
It’s a finger in the face, you walk away
Messing with my mind
I know I’ve been low and pulled a job or two
But, I can’t compare with the things you do
You got five from the Feds and the prison blues
And I shake my head and say

Chorus:
At least I didn’t do that … etc.

Don’t Wait Till Tomorrow

I wanna hear the sound of drums
Made from the skins of jungle bugs
I want to witness the dance of mother earth
Shakin’ her groove thing for all she’s worth

Chorus:
Ah, she’s talkin’ to me
She talkin’ me right now
In the silent sound
I understand
She’s going to help me overcome
Gonna help me overcome
In a flash your day is done
So don’t wait till tomorrow

I wanna walk the sacred ground
Where Red Cloud danced the Sun
And then push myself to the limit
Till my vision comes

Chorus:
Ah, their talkin’ to me right now right now
Their talkin’ to me right now
In the silent sound
I understand
That’s going to help me overcome
Gonna help me overcome
Cause in a flash my day is done
So don’t wait till tomorrow

I wanna be a thought of love
Invade the minds of violent men
And change their hatred into love
Stop this cycle of revenge

Chorus:
Well, that’s talkin’ to us all
That’s talkin’ to us right now
And in the silent sound
Will understand
That’s gonna help us overcome
It’s gonna help us overcome
Cause in a flash your day is done
At a thousand miles an hour
Don’t wait till tomorrow
Hey!

Inside My Heart

Stop your running, don’t be afraid
I know you’ve heard that all before
You trust no one cause you’ve been betrayed
But I don’t know what horizons, I’ve seen brighter days
I know the trouble that you’ve been through
Yes I feel you girl, I’ve been there too!
We can’t embrace until ya come my way
And I’m gonna holler, I’m gonna testify and say

Chorus:
Kind words and a lovin’ heart
That’s what I’ve got, I wanna give it to you
You want good feeling, I’ve got plenty of love
Trust in me now baby – happiness is overdue

We’ve know each other long before we met
My intuition tells me so
Your body music sings inside my chest
You’re so refined, we fit so tight
The love equation, answers right

Chorus (twice):
Kinds words and a lovin’ heart … etc.

Oh you bless me to call you lover
And every smile you send my way
I’m lifted up woman by your lovin’ grace
To a place that makes me wanna hold you woman
Come on – yeah – listen to me tell you

Chorus (out):
Kinds words and a lovin’ heart … etc.

Money Must Think I’m Dead

Spinning my wheels and running this rat race
Selling my pride for a poverty wage
Ain’t gonna get it, to keep her happy
When she wants fine feathers and a golden cage
Cost of living is up
There’s Uncle Sam’s cut
Every overdue stamped in red
I pray the Lord my soul to keep
Money must think I’m dead

Chorus:
Money must think I’m dead
Damn, hope it ain’t true
I need the do-re-mi or my love life’s through [it’s through]
I’m so broke now did I mention
Can’t afford to pay attention
Money thinks I’m dead, then so do you

I know the names of powerful people
But knowing their names don’t see me through
To live in a fat city lifestyle
I could be accustomed to
Now Lord it’s tough, I’m getting hard-up
I’m desperate, I’m over my head
Who do I do to get out of this mess
Cause money must think I’m dead

Bridge:
Now listen, I ain’t greedy
No, don’t ya know people – I’m just needy

Chorus (out):
Well, money must think … etc

[Ya know – do you mind if I play a little harmonica … I mean hell, I can’t afford a saxophone]

Strong Suspicion

Chorus:
I’ve gotta strong suspicion about you
I can’t believe a single thing that you say or do
And if they call my house and I’m not home
You better drag the river for my bones
I gotta strong suspicion about you

Should’a known when I met you, down at the Dew Drop Inn
I asked if you were married, you said once never again
You said you were lookin’ for a little thrill
Then you smiled just like a crocodile, movin’ in for the kill

Chorus:
I’ve gotta strong suspicion … etc.

Bridge:
When you said that you’ld be mine I think you lied – woah - a beautiful lie
When I asked if anyone could take my place
Then tell my why – woah – you couldn’t look me in the face

This is not a movie, this is real TV
I think I just saw your face flashin’ across the screen
They’re talkin’ about a woman out a the lamb
She’s writin’ bad checks, settin’ up her old man

Chorus:
I’ve gotta strong suspicion … etc.

The Sum of Something

If there’s love to be given
Then I wanna give it all to you
If there’s love to be given
Then I wanna give it all to you
And if you want a little more, no problem
I’ll give all of enough of that too!

My love is real heavy
Not something you can toss around
My love is real heavy
Not something you can toss around
But, I know you can carry the weight
I’ve seen what you’ve been putting on down

People all want something
When they get it – ain’t satisfied what that
People all want something
When the get it – ain’t satisfied with that
My something will satisfy you
Cause me love is where it’s at – yeah

Chorus:
So let me give you something
A little some bumping
To get our hearts to jumping
With a whole lot of something
Cause you’re the sum of something
That makes me wanna love again
Oh yes!

If there’s love to be given
Then I wanna give it all to you
If there’s love to be given
Then I wanna give it all to you
Oh yes – if you want a little more, no problem
I’ll give you all of enough of that too!

Chorus:
So let me give you … etc.
