Lyrics


Ain't no need to worry

Ain't no use to cry

'Cause I'll be comin' home soon

To keep you satisfied

You know I get so lonely

That I feel I can't go on

And it feels so good inside, baby

Just to call you on the telephone

I said...


[Chorus:]

Oh baby, I love you

What more can I say

Oh baby, I need you

I miss you more everyday


I woke up early this morning

And sun came shining down

And it found me wishin' and hopin'

Mama, you could be around

Well ,you know that I need you

More than the air that I breathe

And I guess I'm just trying to tell you woman

Oh, what you mean to me


[Chorus]


I try to tell you I love you

In each and every way

I'm trying to tell you I need you

Much more than a piece of lay


[Chorus]


Oh baby, I love you

What more can I say

Oh baby I need your sweet lovin

I miss you more every day
