Say it right now, baby (say you will)
Come on, come on (say you will)

Say that you love me (say)
Say that you need me (say)
Say that you want me (say)

I still remember (shoo be doo wa)
When you used to be 9 years old (shoo be doo wa)
Yeah yeah I was in love with you (shoo be doo wa)
From the bottom of my soul (shoo be doo wa)
Yeah yeah now that you've grown up (shoo be doo wa)
& old enough to know (shoo be doo wa)
You wanna leave me (shoo be doo wa)
You wanna let me go (shoo be doo wa shoo wop)

I want you to know
I said I want you to know right now
You've been good to me, baby
Better than I've been to myself
Hey hey, & if you ever leave me
I don't want nobody else
Hey hey, I said I want you to know
Yeah, I said I want you to know right now
Yeah yeah, you know you make me wanna shout
Yeah yeah (shout), yeah yeah yeah (shout)

Now wait a minute...
I feel aaaaaaaaaall right (yeah yeah yeah yeah yeah yeah!)
Now that I've got my woman

Every time I think about you
You've been so good to me

You know you make me wanna shout
Kick my heels up & shout
Throw my hands back & shout
Kick my heels up & shout
Come on now (shout)
Take it easy (shout)(x3)
A little bit softer now (shout)(x17)
A little bit louder now (shout)(x12)
Hey hey hey hey (hey hey hey hey)(x4)
(repeat & fade):
Jump up & shout now
