Lyrics

(Musixmatch)

I will spend my whole life through

Loving you, loving you

Winter, summer, springtime too

Loving you, loving you

Makes no difference where I go or what I do

You know that I’ll always be loving you

Just you and

If I’m seen with someone new

Don’t be blue, don’t you be blue

I’ll be faithful, I’ll be true

Always true, true to you

There is only one for me

And you know who

You know that I’ll always be

Loving you
