Don't you know I'd work for you, I'd slave for you
Be a beggar or a knave for you?
If that isn't love, it will have to do
Until the real thing comes along

Gladly move the earth for you
Prove my love, dear, and it's worth it for you
If that isn't love, it'll have to do
Until the real thing comes along

With all the words, dear, at my command
I just can't make you understand
I'll always love you, baby, come what may
My heart is yours--what more can I say?
