Oh, I want you babe
I want you all to myself

And now and then Iím gonna hold you
Tell you that Iím gonna love you
Come with me and I will show you
In a while Iíll get to know you

Oh, you know I needed you woman
I needed you, I needed you
Every day and night, right

Now and then Iím gonna hold you
Tell you that Iím gonna love you
Come with me and I will show you
In a while Iíll get to know you

Well, you know what
The secret's I guess
And you think you know
Who your loverís wife is

So you better stop
That thing youíre doing
Baby, youĎre driving me, driving me
Driving me to my ruins
But I, I want you babe

When I was a young man
Always trying to say hello babe
But youíd never know
You live in want
Never knowing that I existed
Till my mind was twisted
I was always trying, sometimes crying
Oh, I needed you, needed you, needed you
Oh, I needed you, needed you, needed you
Oh, I needed you, needed you, needed you

Stop that thing that youíre doing
Baby, youĎre driving me, driving me
Driving me to my ruins
Oh, I want you babe

I needed you, I needed you
Every single day of my entire life
And everytime I tried
Someone else would come along
There it went again

But now and then Iím gonna hold you
Tell you that Iím gonna love you
Come with me and I will show you
In a while Iíll get to know you
You and me weíre gonna make it
Come with me, we mustnít break it
