Lyrics I WANNA BE LOVED BY YOU,
JUST YOU,
NOBODY ELSE BUT YOU,
I WANNA BE LOVED BY YOU,
ALONE,
BOO-BOO-BE-DO!
I WANNA BE KISSED BY YOU,
JUST YOU,
NOBODY ELSE BUT YOU,
I WANNA BE KISSED BY YOU,
ALONE.

I COULDN'T ASPIRE,
TO ANYTHING HIGHER,
THAN TO FEEL THE DESIRE
TO MAKE YOU MY OWN.

I WANNA BE LOVED BY YOU,
JUST YOU,
NOBODY ELSE BUT YOU,
I WANNA BE LOVED BY YOU,
ALONE.

Lyrics verse 1:
I KNEW
THE TIME HAD TO COME
WHEN I'D BE HELD
UNDER YOUR THUMB.
I'M LIKE A PAWN
IN YOUR HAND,
MOVED AND COMPELLED,
AT YOUR COMMAND.
WHETHER
IT'S FOR BAD
OR FOR GOOD,
I WOULD NEVER CHANGE
IF I COULD.

Chorus:
MAYBE I'M RIGHT
AND MAYBE I'M WRONG,
AND MAYBE I'M WEAK
AND MAYBE I'M STRONG,
BUT, NEVERTHELESS,
I'M IN LOVE WITH YOU.
MAYBE I'LL WIN
AND MAYBE I'LL LOSE,
AND MAYBE I'M IN
FOR CRYING THE BLUES,
BUT, NEVERTHELESS,
I'M IN LOVE WITH YOU.

SOMEHOW,
I KNOW AT A GLANCE
THE TERRIBLE CHANCES
I'M TAKING:
FINE AT THE START,
THEN LEFT WITH A HEART
THAT IS BREAKING.

MAYBE I'LL LIVE
A LIFE OF REGRET,
AND MAYBE I'LL GIVE
MUCH MORE THAN I GET,
BUT, NEVERTHELESS,
I'M IN LOVE WITH YOU.

verse 2:
IN SPITE OF ALL
I COULD DO,
I WENT AHEAD
FALLING FOR YOU.
SO IF I LAUGH
OR I CRY,
I MADE MY BED,
THAT'S WHERE
I'LL LIE.
FOR WHAT HAPPENS
THERE'S NO EXCUSE,
I PUT MY OWN HEAD
IN THE NOOSE.

Chorus:
MAYBE I'M RIGHT
AND MAYBE I'M WRONG,
AND MAYBE I'M WEAK
AND MAYBE I'M STRONG,
BUT, NEVERTHELESS,
I'M IN LOVE WITH YOU.
MAYBE I'LL WIN
AND MAYBE I'LL LOSE,
AND MAYBE I'M IN
FOR CRYING THE BLUES,
BUT, NEVERTHELESS,
I'M IN LOVE WITH YOU.

SOMEHOW,
I KNOW AT A GLANCE
THE TERRIBLE CHANCES
I'M TAKING:
FINE AT THE START,
THEN LEFT WITH A HEART
THAT IS BREAKING.

MAYBE I'LL LIVE
A LIFE OF REGRET,
AND MAYBE I'LL GIVE
MUCH MORE THAN I GET,
BUT, NEVERTHELESS,
I'M IN LOVE WITH YOU.

Lyrics THREE LITTLE WORDS,
OH, WHAT I'D GIVE
FOR THAT WONDERFUL PHRASE.
TO HEAR THOSE
THREE LITTLE WORDS,
THAT'S ALL I'D LIVE FOR
THE REST OF MY DAYS
AND WHAT I FEEL IN MY HEART,
THEY TELL SINCERELY,
NO OTHER WORDS CAN TELL IT
HALF SO CLEARLY.
THREE LITTLE WORDS,
EIGHT LITTLE LETTERS,
WHICH SIMPLY MEAN,
I LOVE YOU!

Lyrics WHO'S SORRY NOW?
WHO'S SORRY NOW?
WHOSE HEART IS ACHING
FOR BREAKING EACH VOW?
WHO'S SAD AND BLUE?
WHO'S CRYING TOO?
JUST LIKE I CRIED
OVER YOU.
RIGHT TO THE END,
JUST LIKE A FRIEND,
I TRIED TO WARN YOU
SOMEHOW.
YOU HAD YOUR WAY,
NOW YOU MUST PAY;
I'M GLAD
THAT YOU'RE SORRY NOW.
