I ain't got no money
I ain't like those other guys U hang around
It's kinda funny
But they always seem 2 let U down
And I get discouraged
Cuz I never see U anymore
And I need ur love, baby, yeah
That's all I'm livin' 4, yeah

I didn't wanna pressure U, baby
But all I ever wanted 2 do...

I wanna b ur lover
I wanna b the only 1 that makes U come runnin'
I wanna b ur lover
I wanna turn U on, turn U out
All night long make U shout, "Oh lover, yeah!"
I wanna b the only 1 U come 4

I wanna b ur brother
I wanna b ur mother and ur sister 2
There ain't no other
That can do the things that I'll do 2 U
And I get discouraged
Cuz U treat me just like a child
And they say I'm so shy, yeah
But with U, I'll just go wild, ooh

I didn't wanna pressure U, baby, oh
But all I ever wanted 2 do...

I wanna b ur lover
I wanna b the only 1 that makes U come runnin'
I wanna b ur lover
I wanna turn U on, turn U out
All night long make U shout, "Oh lover, yeah!"
I wanna b the only 1 U come 4, yeah
