Lyrics NO GREATER NEED,
(AND IT IS TRUE)
THAN THE NEED
I HAVE FOR YOU.
SO BABY,
CAN'T YOU SEE,
YOU MUST DO SOMETHING
FOR ME.
I'LL NEVER SLEEP
A WINK TONIGHT,
UNLESS YOU COME OVER
AND TREAT ME RIGHT.
I'LL BE IN MISERY
'TILL YOU DO SOMETHING
FOR ME.

SOMETHING LIKE
DIMMING THE LIGHT
AND HOLDING ME TIGHT
'TILL I HEAR
MY POOR HEART POUND.
SOMETHING LIKE
TEASING ME
AND SQUEEZING ME
'TILL MY LOVE
COMES TUMBLING DOWN.

GIVE ME YOUR LIFE,
DARLING,
GIVE ME YOUR HEART,
MAKE ME NOW BELIEVE
WE'LL NEVER PART.
I'LL BE IN MISERY
'TILL YOU DO SOMETHING
FOR ME
TERRITORIAL RESTRICTIONS
MAY APPLY TO THIS TITLE.

Lyrics MY LITTLE GIRL
IS A COUNTRY GIRL,
MY LITTLE GIRL
IS A COUNTRY GIRL.
MEANS MORE TO ME
THAN ANYTHING
IN THE WORLD.

SHE FIXES MY BREAKFAST,
LUNCH AND DINNER;
FIXES THEM RIGHT
ON TIME,
SHE FIXES MY BREAKFAST,
LUNCH AND DINNER;
FIXES THEM RIGHT
ON TIME.
GLAD TO BE BACK HOME
WITH THAT LITTLE GIRL
OF MINE.

THAT'S WHY I'M GLAD,
GLAD,
GLAD TO BE
AT HOME AT LAST,
THAT'S WHY I'M GLAD,
GLAD,
GLAD TO BE
AT HOME AT LAST.
SINCE I SAW MY BABY,
YES,
A MILLION DAYS
HAVE PAST.

WELL,
I ROLLED IN THE STATION
AROUND 6:45,
YES,
I ROLLED IN THE STATION
AROUND 6:45.
SHOULD HAVE SEEN
MY BABY'S FACE
TO SEE MY TRAIN ARRIVE.

IT MADE ME FEEL SO GOOD
TO WALK IN THE DOOR,
IT MADE ME FEEL SO GOOD
TO WALK IN THE DOOR.
TO FIND EV'RYTHING
THE SAME,
EVEN MY PALLET
ON THE FLOOR.

I SAID,
HI, BABY,
I WON'T WORRY YOU
NO MORE,
I SAID,
HI, BABY,
I WON'T WORRY YOU
NO MORE.
I'M BACK
WHERE I BELONG;
I AIN'T GOING
OUT THAT DOOR.

Lyrics YOU BETTER
LEAVE MY KITTEN ALONE,
YOU BETTER
LEAVE MY KITTEN ALONE.
I WILL TELL YOU,
BIG BAD BULLDOG,
YOU BETTER
LEAVE HER ALONE.

MISTER DOG
I'M GONNA HIT YOU
ON THE TOP
OF YOUR HEAD,
'CAUSE THAT GAL'S
GONNA MISS YOU
AND YOU'LL WISH
THAT YOU WERE DEAD,
IF YOU DON'T
LEAVE MY KITTEN ALONE.
YES I LOVE
MY LITTLE KITTEN
LIKE ALL YOU
HOUND DOGS
LOVE YOUR BONE.

DON'T YOU KNOW,
MY KITTEN ALONE,
DON'T YOU KNOW,
MY KITTEN IS AFRAID.
SO YOU PUT YOUR HANDS
ABOVE HER
'CAUSE I'M LOVING HER
ALONE.

YES I LOVE
MY LITTLE KITTEN
LIKE ALL YOU
HOUND DOGS
LOVE YOUR BONE.

Lyrics LET THEM TALK
IF THEY WANT TO,
TALK DON'T BOTHER ME.
I WANT THE WHOLE
WIDE WORLD TO KNOW
THAT I LOVE YOU SO.
LET THEM WHISPER -
FOR THEY KNOW NOT,
WHAT'S BETWEEN YOU
AND I.
I'LL KEEP LOVING YOU
UNTIL THE DAY
I DIE.

THEY'RE TRYING
TO BREAK UP OUR ROMANCE
BUT THEY
DON'T HAVE A CHANCE.
WE HAVE A KIND OF LOVE
THAT'S SO STRONG,
WE'LL BE TOGETHER
FROM NOW ON.

IDLE GOSSIP
COMES FROM
THE DEVIL'S WORKSHOP,
BUT TRUE LOVE
WILL MAKE IT STOP.
I WANT THE WHOLE
WIDE WORLD TO KNOW
THAT I LOVE YOU SO!

THEY ARE ENVIOUS
OF EV'RYTHING WE DO,
BUT IT'S SO WONDERFUL
WHEN YOU LOVE SOMEONE
AND THAT SOMEONE
LOVES YOU!

Lyrics THIS IS
THE SWEETEST LETTER
THAT I HAVE EVER READ.
IT WAS WRITTEN
BY MY SWEETHEART
AND THIS
IS WHAT SHE SAID.
IT READS,
MY DEAREST DARLING,
STILL LOVE YOU
FAITHFULLY
AND I HOPE
THESE FEW LINES
FIND YOU
STILL IN LOVE
WITH ME.
THE MORE
I READ THIS LETTER,
THE MORE
IT TOUCHES MY HEART.
RIGHT HERE SHE SAYS
DON'T FORGET HER
ALTHOUGH
WE'RE MILES APART.
SHE CLOSES OUT
BY SAYING,
I THINK
I'LL GO TO BED,
SO I'LL KISS THIS LETTER,
DARLING,
BUT I WISH IT WAS YOU
INSTEAD.

Lyrics I NEED SOMEONE'S HANDS
TO LEAD ME
THROUGH THE NIGHT.
I NEED SOMEONE'S ARMS
TO HOLD
AND SQUEEZE ME TIGHT
WHEN THE NIGHT BEGINS
AND UNTIL IT ENDS.
I NEED YOUR LOVE SO BAD.
I NEED SOME LIPS
TO FEEL NEXT TO MINE;
I NEED SOMEONE
TO STAND UP
AND TELL ME
WHEN I'M LYING.
AND WHEN
THE LIGHTS ARE LOW
AND IT'S TIME TO GO,
I NEED YOUR LOVE SO BAD.

SO GO ON,
GIVE IT UP,
AND BRING IT
HOME TO ME,
OR WRITE IT
ON A PAPER
SO IT CAN BE
READ TO ME.
TELL ME
YOU LOVE ME,
STOP DRIVING ME MAD,
'CAUSE I NEED YOUR LOVE SO BAD.

I NEED A SOFT VOICE
THAT WILL TALK TO ME
AT NIGHT.
DON'T WORRY, BABY,
WE WON'T FUSS
AND FIGHT.
LISTEN TO MY PLEA,
BRING IT
HOME TO ME,
I NEED YOUR LOVE SO BAD.

Lyrics TAKE MY LOVE,
I WANT TO GIVE IT
ALL TO YOU.
YOU CAN,
YOU CAN,
YOU CAN
TAKE ALL MY LIPS,
OH, TAKE MY ARMS TOO!
MY LOVE IS YOUR LOVE,
DARLING,
NO ONE ELSE WILL DO.
OH, OH, OH,
TAKE MY HAND,
I NEED YOU
WHEN THE DAY
IS THROUGH.
TAKE MY DREAMS,
MAKE THEM ALL COME TRUE.
NOTHING ELSE MATTERS DEAR,
IF I CAN'T HAVE YOU.

I REALLY LOVE YOU
AND I BELIEVE
YOU LOVE ME TOO,
SO DARLING
BELIEVE IN ME
THOUGH MY LOVE
YOU KNOW IS TRUE.

SO TAKE MY ARMS,
TAKE MY VERY SOUL,
TAKE MY ARMS,
YEAH,
OF WHICH
I CAN'T CONTROL.
MY LIFE,
MY LOVE
IS YOUR LOVE,
NEVER LET IT
RUN COLD.

I LOVE THE THINGS YOU SAY,
TALK TO ME,

IN YOUR OWN SWEET GENTLE WAY.
LET ME HEAR,

TALK TO ME,

HOLD ME CLOSE,
WHISPER LOW.

CAN'T YOU SEE,
DARLIN',
I LOVE YOU SO.
