Song title: Do you love me?

(Gordy jr.) by The Contours (Gordy 7005), 1962

Do you love me?

You broke my heart
Cause I couldn't dance
You didn't even want me around.
And now I'm back to let you know
I can really shake it down now.

Do you love me? I can really move...
Do you love me? I'm in the groove...
Do you love me? Do you love me?
Now that I can dance
Watch me now!

Hey, work it, oh work it out baby.
Work it, work it, well you're driving me crazy
Work it, work it, just a little bit of soul now.

I can mash potato, I can mash potato
I can do the twist, I can do the twist
Now tell me baby, tell me baby.
Do ya like it like this? (do ya like it like this?)
Tell me, tell me, tell me...

Do you love me, do you love me
Do you love me, do you love me
do you love me, do you love me
Now that I can dance, dance, dance
Watch me now!

Hey, work it, work it
Oh shake it up, shake it up
Work it, work it (oh shake it, shake it up
Work it, work it (oh a little bit of soul now
Work it, work it (gettin' to me baby
work it, work it (oh you're drivin' me crazy
work it, work it (oh don't get lazy

I can mash potato....

Do you love me? Do you love me?
Do you love me? Do you love me?
Do you love me? Do you love me?
Now that I can dance


HEY! Work it, work it, oh work it out baby
work it, work it, well you're driving me crazy
work it, work it, oh don't ya get lazy

work it, work it
oh I've had it baby
work it, work it
well you're driving me crazy
work it, work it
oh don't get lazy.

Notes: Widely used from 1985, as interlude during 'Twist and shout'. Actually the full lyrics were never used by Bruce
