You're so gorgeous I'll do anything
To where your head begins
You make me
Everything you do is irresistible
Why can't I be you?
I'll run around in circles
I'll eat you all up
You're so wonderful
You make me

Everything you do is quite angelic

You turn the whole world upside down
I'm stuck like glue
Make me hungry for you
Everything you do is simply dreamy
Why can't I be you?
Why can't I be you?
