For your precious love means more to me
Than any love could ever be
For when I wanted you I was so lonely and so blue
For that's what love will do

Darling, I'm so surprised,
Oh, when I first realized
That you were fooling me
Darling, they say that our love won't grow

I just want to tell them that they don't know
For as long as you, long as you are loving me
Our love will grow wider, deeper than any sea
And all the things in the world, in this whole wide world
Is just that you would say that you'd be my girl

(Wanting you) Wanting you, (I'm lonely and blue) whoa, lonely
That's what love will do

For your precious love means more to me
Than any love could ever be
For when I, I wanted you I was so lonely and so blue
That's what love will do
