Oh yeah, I’ll tell you somethin’

I think you’ll understand

When I say that somethin’

I want to hold your hand

I want to hold your hand

I want to hold your hand

Oh please, say to me

You’ll let me be your man

And please, say to me

You’ll let me hold your hand

You’ll let me hold your hand

I want to hold your hand

And when I touch you

I feel happy inside

It’s such a feelin’ that my love

I can’t hide

I can’t hide

I can’t hide

Yeah, you got that somethin’

I think you’ll understand

When I say that somethin’

I want to hold your hand

I want to hold your hand

I want to hold your hand

And when I touch you

I feel happy inside

It’s such a feelin’ that my love

I can’t hide

I can’t hide

I can’t hide

Yeah, you got that somethin’

I think you’ll understand

When I feel that somethin’

I want to hold your hand

I want to hold your hand

I want to hold your hand

I want to hold your hand
