Lyrics
Girl, you really got me now
You got me so I don't know what I'm doin'
Girl, you really got me now
You got me so I can't sleep at night

[Chorus]
Girl, you really got me now
You got me so I don't know where I'm goin', yeah
Oh Girl, you really got me now
You got me so I can't sleep at night

You really got me
You really got me
You really got me

Please, don't ever let me be
I only want to be by your side
Please, don't ever let me be
I only want to be by your side

[Chorus]

You really got me
You really got me
You really got me
Oh no, no, ah

[Chorus: x2]

You really got me
You really got me
You really got me
Oh Oh Oh
