Darling, hey now, you made me change my mind
I can go no further, because you got me chained and bound, oh
Taller than the tallest sky, sweeter than a grape on a vine, now
Can go no further, because you got me chained and bound, right now, now

So glad, I'm so glad, I'm so glad, oh, I don't have to worry no more
Oh my my my, baby, somebody, somebody

What kinda life is this that I'm a living
Oh Lord, what kind of love is this she trying to give me
I feel like standing up and telling the word
I'm chained to your love

Darling oh, don't break this little heart of mine
There's no greater love than this love of yours and mine, oh
You walk with your head in the sky, darling don't ever pass me by
I ain't going no further, because you got me chained and bound, oh now

So glad, I'm so glad, I'm so glad, Lord, I don't have to worry no more
Oh, she got me chained to her love, now
I don't, I don't want to be taken away, no
I'm chained, I'm chained and a little bound, right now
I'm chained, I'm chained to your love
I don't and I don't know that I wanna to be taken away, now
Ooh, just a little bit of soul, just a little bit of soul, to life
