Get up in the mornin' feelin' mighty weak;
A tossin' and a turnin'. Well, I ain't had no sleep.
Oh, baby, what roads our love takin'?
To romance or heartbreakin'.
Won't you say which way you're gonna go.
I gotta know, gotta know, gotta know.

Nine and nine make fourteen; four and four make nine.
The clock is strikin' thirteen; I think I lost my mind.
You know it's getting' aggravatin'.
How long can I keep waitin'?
Tell me if you love me, yes or no.
I gotta know, gotta know, gotta know.

Oh, how much I need you!
Have pity on this heart of mine.
Well, if you need and want me too,
I'll be your one and only till the end of time.

Saw the fortune teller; had my fortune read.
She sent me to the doctor, who sent me straight to bed.
He said I'm lonesome and I'm lovesick.
I've got my mind on lipstick.
Will you kiss away my cares and woe?
I gotta know, gotta know, gotta know.
