Ba ba ba...
Ooh...
Ba ba ba...

I was the 1 sleepin' all alone when U were at the party
I was the 1 waitin' by the phone when U were with somebody
Now here U come again with ur heart n ur hands
Confessin' all of ur sins, yeah
The same tired line that I've heard a dozen times
But still I've got 2 give n, ooh

Cuz when U love somebody, mmhmm
Every now and then it might rain
When U love somebody, ooh
With every sun shower, there's pain
Whenever something's lost, something's gained
When U love somebody, ooh
When U love someone, mmm

U were the 1 lookin' 4 some action
I was just lookin' 4 U
Ooh
"Who needs love when U got protection?"
Quote, unquote ur point of view
Ooh
All my partners say that I need 2 dismiss ya until they see U smile
Such a pretty smile
All them fools r buggin' cuz they just want ur lovin'
N the backseat, huh, 4 a little while

But I don't care cuz when U love somebody
Every now and then it might rain
When U love somebody
With every sun shower, there's pain, ooh
Whenever something's lost, something's gained
When U love somebody, ooh
When U love someone, yeah
Tell me

Ooh
Check me out on the floor
So what? U got me open
Yeah, do ur dance
But I'm the 1 U're dancin' 4
And U know this
Round and round, don't stop it
And U know this, yeah yeah
Up and down, U got it

Cuz when U love somebody
Every now and then it might rain
When U love somebody (Oh)
With every sun shower, there's pain, ooh (Baby, a little pain...)
Whenever something's lost, something's gained
(Baby, ooh but every now and then)
U got 2 think about what U gain (Think U don't?)

Ahh!
When U love somebody (Yeah, when U love somebody) (Ooh)
Every now and then it might rain (Ooh, might rain)
When U love somebody (Pourin' down, down on me)
With every sun shower, there's pain (Come on, wet me rain)
Whenever something's lost, something's gained
When U love somebody, yeah
When U love somebody, mmm (So sweet)
When U love somebody, oh (It's complete)
When U love somebody, ooh (Well) (So nice)
When U love somebody (It's paradise)

When U love somebody
Round and round, don't stop it

Round and round, don't stop the pounds
Cuz a brother gettin' down here lately
Freedom agrees with us all, U see
N a state of mind that's weightless
See, on the quantum tip I flipped on the notion
When the Adam split, we got Eve (Mm)
Duality's now a groupie with a backstage pass
And they ain't gonna leave till they get some
From grace we fall
Referring 2 the objects on the wall
I have a picture of my hat, my coat, my balls
Around and round, around and round
Huh, don't stop the pounds
Yeah, cuz a brother gettin' down here lately
