Live in my house, I'll be your shelter
Just pay me back with one thousand kisses
Be my lover and I'll cover you

Open your door, I'll be your tenant
Don't got much baggage to lay at your feet
But sweet kisses, I've got to spare
I'll be there and I'll cover you

I think they meant it
When they said you can't buy love
Now I know you can rent it
A new lease, you are my love
On life, be my life

Just slip me on, I'll be your blanket
Wherever, whatever, I'll be your coat
You'll be my king and I'll be your castle
No, you'll be my queen and I'll be your moat

I think they meant it
When they said you can't buy love
Now I know you can rent it
A new lease, you are my love
On life, oh my life

I've longed to discover
Something as true as this is

So the thousand sweet kisses, I'll cover you
(If you're cold and you're lonely)
With a thousand sweet kisses, I'll cover you
(You've got one nickel only)

With a thousand sweet kisses, I'll cover you
(When you're worn out and tired)
With a thousand sweet kisses, I'll cover you
(When your heart has expired)

Oh lover, I'll cover you, yeah, yeah
Oh lover, I'll cover you
