The way you make me feel like I belong;
The way you make me right when I am wrong;
The way you sacrifice just for me;
Just how lucky can a poor man be?

That is why.
(That's why I love you so.)
That is why.
(That's why I love you so.)
Don't you know, baby?
(That's why I love you so.)
Yeah, yeah, yeah, I want the world to know.

The way you rub my back when I'm in pain;
The way you soothe me so I won't complain;
And then you kiss me with your ruby red lips;
It thrills me so, I turn a back-over flip.

That is why.
(That's why I love you so.)
That is why.
(That's why I love you so.)
Don't you know, baby?
(That's why I love you so.)
Yeah, yeah, yeah, I want the world to know.

If Shakespeare thought that Juliet
Really loved Romeo from the time they met,
Uh he would blow his top if he could see
Just how you've been loving me.

The way you rub my back when I'm in pain;
The way you soothe me so I won't complain;
And then you kiss me with your ruby red lips;
It thrills me so, I turn a back-over flip.

That is why.
(That's why I love you so.)
That is why.
(That's why I love you so.)
Don't you know, baby?
(That's why I love you so.)
Yeah, yeah, yeah, I want the world to know.
