Come on pretty baby won't you talk with me
Come on pretty baby won't you walk with me
Come on pretty baby give me one more chance
Try and save our romance

Slow down
Oh, you know you're moving way too fast
You gotta gimme a little loving
Gimme a little loving
Oh, if you want our love to last

I used to walk you home baby after school
Carry your books home, too
But now you got a boyfriend down the street
Baby what you trying to do

You better slow down
Oh, you know you're moving way too fast
You gotta gimme a little loving
Gimme a little loving
Ow, if you want our love to last

Well you know that I love you, tell the world I do
Come on pretty baby, why can't you be true
I need you badly, baby, oh so bad
You're the best little woman I ever had

Slow down
Oh, you know you're moving way too fast
You gotta gimme a little loving
Gimme a little loving
Ow, if you want our love to last

You gotta gimme a little loving
Gimme a little loving
Oh, if you want our love to last
