How sweet it is to be loved by you
How sweet it is to be loved by you

I needed the shelter of someone's arms
There you were
I needed someone to understand my ups and downs
There you were
With sweet love and devotion
Deeply touching my emotion
I want to stop, and thank you baby
I want to stop, and thank you baby
Yes I do

How sweet it is to be loved by you
Feels so fine
How sweet it is to be loved by you

I close my eyes at night
Wonderin' where would I be without you in my life
Everything I did was just a bore
Everywhere I went it seems I'd been there before
But you brighten up for me all of my days
With a love so sweet in so many ways
An' I wanna stop, thank you, baby
I just wanna stop, and thank you, baby

Ohh yes
How sweet it is to be loved by you
It's just like sugar sometime
How sweet it is to be loved by you
Wo yea

You were better to me than I was to myself
For me, there's you and there ain't nobody else
I wanna stop, thank you, baby
I just wanna stop, and thank you, baby

Oh yes
How sweet it is to be loved by you
How sweet it is to be loved by you
Wo now
How sweet it is to be loved by you
It's like jelly babe, oh yea
How sweet it is to be loved by you
Just like honey to the bee babe
Yea now
How sweet it is to be loved by you
(Na na na)
How sweet it is to be loved by you
