When we want to love, we love
When we want to kiss, we kiss
With a little petting, we're getting
Some fun out of life

When we want to work, we work
When we wanna play, we play
In a happy setting, we're getting
Some fun out of life

[Chorus]
Maybe we do the right things
Maybe we do the wrong
Spending each day
Wending our way along
