If I ever leave you
You can say I told you so
And if I ever hurt you babe
You know I hurt myself as well

Is that any way for a man to carry on
d'you think he wants his little loved one gone?
I love you Baby, more than you'll ever know
More than you'll ever know

When I wasn't makin' too much money
you know where my paycheck went
you know I brought it home to baby
and I never spent one red cent

Is that any way for a man to carry on
d'you think he wants his little loved one gone?
I love you Baby, more than you'll ever know
More than you'll ever know

I'm not tryin' to be
any kind of man
I'm tryin' to be somebody
you can love, trust, and understand
I know that I can be, yeah yeah
a part of you that no one else could see
I just gotta hear, tohear you say
It's all right
yeah, yeah, yeah!

I'm only flesh and blood
But I can be anything that you demand
I could president of General Motors baby, heh
or just a tiny little grain of sand

Is that any way for a man to carry on
d'you think he wants his little loved one gone?
I love you Baby, more than you'll ever know
More than you'll ever know

If I ever leave you
You can say I told you so
And if I ever hurt you baby
You know I hurt myself as well

Is that any way for a man to carry on
d'you think he wants his little loved one gone?
I love you Baby, more than you'll ever know
More than you'll ever know

I love you, I love you, I love you baby!
Well all right!
I told ya, so many times before
I love you
I love you!
If you don't know, then I'll tell ya one more time
I love you!
I love you!
