Oh well, now you're the girl I'm simply mad about
Oh yes, I'm really glad it's been me, oh yeah
I hope that you've been getting ready
'Cause I'm gonna ask you to go steady with me

I got two eyes that happened by you
And when they saw you they said they knew you were fine
I got two lips that long to kiss you
And when they speak they say they wish you were mine

Hey hey, sweet baby
Oh don't you know that I am yours from head to toe

Oh, I got a little heart inside me beating
And when it speaks it keeps repeating your name all the time
You better watch out 'cause of what I'm saying
'Cause baby, don't you know that I ain't playing a game

Hey hey, sweet baby
Oh don't you know that I am yours from head to toe
All the way down from the top to the ground
Sweet baby, sweet baby

Oh I got two legs and I got two feet
That always take me to your street everyday, all the time
No matter which way I try to go, my legs and my feet
They seem to know the way

Hey hey, sweet baby
Oh don't you know that I am yours from head to toe
All the way down from the top to the ground
Hey, sweet baby
Hey, sweet baby
Yeah I am yours from head to toe
Hey, sweet baby
Yeah I am yours from head to toe
Sweet baby
