I believe in miracles

Where’re you from, you sexy thing, you sexy thang you

I believe in miracles since you came along, you sexy thing

Where did you come from, baby

How did you know, I needed you

How did you know I needed you so badly

How did you know I’d give my heart gladly

Yesterday I was one of the lonely people

Now your lying close to me, making love to me

I believe in miracles

Where’re you from, you sexy thing, sexy thing you

I believe in miracles

Since you came along, you sexy thing

Where did you come from, angel

How did you know I’d be the one

Did you know your everything I prayed for?

Did you know every night and day for

Everyday, you’d give love satisfaction

Now your lying next to me, giving it to me

I believe in miracles

Where’re you from? you sexy thing, sexy thing you

I believe in miracles

Since you came along sexy thing

Kiss me, you sexy thing

Touch me baby, you sexy thing

I love the way you touch my darling, you sexy thing

Yesterday I was one of the lonely people

Now your lying close to me giving it to me

I believe in miracles

Where’re you from? you sexy thing, sexy thing you

I believe in miracles

Since you came along, you sexy thing

Touch me, Kiss me darling, I love the way you love me baby

It’s ecastacy, its ecstacy, sexy thing,

I love the way you kiss me darling

Love the way you hold me, keep on loving me darling

Keep on loving me baby
