I don't want you to be no slave,
I don't want you to work all day,
But I want you to be true,
And I just wanna make love to you.
Love to you [Repeat: x3]

All I want to do is wash your clothes;
I don't want to keep you indoors.
There is nothing for you to do
But keep me makin' love to you.
Love to you [Repeat: x3]

And I can tell by the way you walk that walk,
I can hear by the way you talk that talk,
I can know by the way you treat your girl
That I can give you all the lovin' in the whole wide world!
All I want you to do is make your bread!
Just to make sure you're well-fed!
I don't want you sad and blue!
And I just wanna make love to you.
Love to you [Repeat: x3]

And I can tell by the way you walk that walk,
And I can hear by the way you talk that talk,
And I can know by the way you treat your girl
That I could give you all the lovin' in the whole wide world!
Oh, all I wanna do, all I wanna do is cook your bread!
Just to make sure that you're well-fed!
I don't want you sad and blue,
And I just wanna make love to you.
Love to you [Repeat: x4]
