Lady, I can understand your problems and your worries
When you love a man like me
And if you don't mind I will try to say “I love you” in this song now
Listen to this melody
You belong to me
I belong to you, yes, I do
And we belong to each other, lady
Listen to me, baby
There'll be times when I'll be down and I'll be troubled
Trying to be that rising star
But don't worry, I will never in our lifetime bust your bubble
Or bring you down from where you are
You're a queen to me
And Lord knows I'm a king to you, yeah
And we belong to each other, baby
Yeah
You go to my head
You're a part of everything I say and do
You go to my head
And you keep me happy
Ooh, baby, I can understand your worries and your problems
Trying to be a rising star
And if you're lonely all you have to do is call my name out
And I'll be there where you are
You belong to me
Lord knows I belong to you
And we belong to each other, baby
Yeah
You go to my head
Baby, you're a part of everything I say and think and do
(You go to my head)
Every time we make love on the bed you go to my head
And I'm givin' all my love to you
You go to my head, baby (Ooh...)
Can I bring it down and talk to you awhile
Can I talk to you (Ooh...), woman, can I talk to you
(Ooh...ooh...ooh...ooh...ooh...ooh...ah)
Can I talk to you, baby
{You keep me happy} When we're makin' love under stars aglow
{You keep me happy}
{You keep me happy} Kissing you all over from your head to your toes (Ooh...)
{You keep me happy} Caressing you, touching you (Ooh...ooh...ooh...)
Kissin' every little part of you (Ooh...ooh...)
{You keep me happy}
{You keep me happy} When I'm lovin' you and I (Mmm, hmm)
{You keep me happy} With my arms around you squeezin' you tight
(Mmm, hmm, mmm, mmm)
{You keep me happy} When we do all the things that only you and I can see (Mmm)
{You keep me happy} You go from the bottom of my toes to the top of my head
(You go from the bottom of my toes to the top of my head)
{You keep me happy} You keep me happy
