Lyrics:

(Musixmatch)

I’m, I’m so in love with you

Whatever you want to do

Is all right with me

‘Cause you make me feel so brand new

And I want to spend my life with you

Let me say that since, baby

Since we’ve been together

Ooh

Loving you forever

Is what I need

Let me be the one you come running to

I’ll never be untrue

Ooh baby

Let’s, let’s stay together (Together)

Loving you whether, whether

Times are good or bad, happy or sad

Ooh, ooh, yeah

Whether times are good or bad, happy or sad

Why, somebody, why people break-up

Oh, turn around and make-up?

I just can’t deceive

You’d never do that to me (Would you, baby?)

Stayin’ around you is all I see

Let’s, we oughta stay together (Together)

Loving you whether, whether

Times are good or bad, happy or sad, come on

Let’s, let’s stay together

Loving you whether, whether

Times are good or bad, happy or sad
