Roberta, you say you know me
Oh, I wish you had the time

I know you need to move in other circles too;

I'd ask you over but I can't afford you
Oh, I wish you'd take the time
Oh, Roberta, the night goes slowly
It's tough for me, ah, it's tough for you
And I'm in a bad way and wanna make love to you, ooh, ooh
Oh, I wish you had the time
Oh, Roberta, I really need you
It's tough for me, ah, it's tough for you
