Well, I think I'm goin' out of my head [4] .
Yes, I think I'm goin' out of my head,
Over you, over you.
I want you to want me.
I need you so badly,
I can't think of anything but you...

...'re just too good to be true.
[Applause.]
Can't take my eyes off of you.
You'd be like heaven to touch.
I wanna hold you so much.
At long last, love has arrived
And I thank God I'm alive.
You're just too good to be true.
Can't take my eyes off of you.

Goin' out of my head over you,
Out of my head over you,
Out of my head day and night,
Night and day and night,
Wrong or right.

I love you, baby.
[Applause, wolf whistling.]
And if it's quite alright,
I need you, baby,
To warm the lonely night.
I love you, baby.
Trust in me when I say,
Oh! Pretty baby,
Don't bring me down, I pray.
Oh, pretty baby,
Now that I've found you, stay.
And let me love you, baby,
Let me love you.

I want you to want me.
I need you so badly,

I can't think of anything but you.

Goin' out of my head over you.
/(Can't take my eyes off of you).
Out of my head over you.
/(You're just to good to be true).
Out of my head, day and night,
Night and day and night, wrong or right.
Night and day and night, wrong or right.
Night and day and night.

And I think I'm goin' out of my head.
