Lyrics

(LyricFind)

Love and happiness (yeah)

Something that can make you do wrong

Make you do right

Love…

Love and happiness

Something’s going wrong

Someone’s on the phone

Three o’clock in the morning

Talking about how she can make it right (well)

Happiness is when you really feel good about somebody

There’s nothing wrong

Being in love with someone

(Yeah, Oh baby)

Love and happiness

(Love and happiness)

Love and happiness

(Love and happiness)

You be good to me

I’ll be good to you

We’ll be together

We’ll see each other

Walk away with victory

Love and happiness

(Love and happiness)

Make you do right

Love’ll make you do wrong

Make you come home early

Make you stay out all night long

The power of love

(Wait a minute, let me tell you)

The power of love

The power …

Make you do right

Love’ll make you do wrong

Love’ll make you wanna dance and sing

Make you wanna dance

Love and happiness

Love is…

(Wait a minute)

Love is…

Walkin’ together

Talkin’ together

Singin’ together

Prayin’ together

Say, I wanna moan, say .

Moan for love, I say …

Let me moan for love, I say …

Wanna moan for love

Talkin’ about the power …
