I want you, be around
When that evening sun goes down
I want you, be around
Keep my both feet on the ground
When that evening sun goes down

I want you, understand
Little girl, take me by my hand
I want you, understand
I wanna be your loving man
When that evening sun goes down

If it's nice, we'll go for a walk
A stroll in the clear moonlight
Singing a song, won't take long
Everything gonna be all right

And I wanna hold you oh-so near
Keep you, darling, from all fear
I wanna hold you oh-so near
Nibble on your little ear
When that evening sun goes down

If it's nice, go for a walk
Stroll in the clear moonlight
Sing you a song, won't take long
Everything gonna be all right

And I wanna hold you oh-so near
Keep you, darling, from all fear
I wanna hold you oh-so near
Nibble on your little ear
When that evening sun goes down

When that evening sun goes down
When that evening sun goes down
