[Chorus]
I love you cause I want to
I love you cause I want to

Sometimes I wonder baby
Why I put up with you
You ought to pay attention
I've got better things to do
I could be tearing the Eiffel tower down to the ground
I could be helping superman and break the speed of sound
Nobody tells me what to do
And I don't love you cause I have to

[Chorus]

Sometimes I'm feelin' wicked and I want to sneak around
Sneak up from behind you baby while you're out on the town
Now if you don't take me with you I might catch you in the act
You can't run and hide and keep your alibis intact
Nobody tells me what to do
And I don't love you 'cause I have to

[Chorus]

This just ain't some game we play, so you better straighten up
I ain't doin' this for my health
I'm doin' it for love, love

[Chorus]

Life is an adventure and I just can't get enough
Love can be so simple it don't have to be so tough
I could be anybody's sweetheart, anybody's girl
I could marry me a rich man and sail around the world
But I think I'll stay right here with you
Cause I never do nothing I don't want to

[Chorus]
