Love is the thing you need

Ooh, I know a fortune teller, a very freaky fella
How 'bout you like me to tell ya
(Love is the thing you need)
Let me say now, a family physician, gave me a prescription
For a nice disposition
(Love is the thing you need)

So, when all your frustrations don't receive no medication
How bad you feel, oh, it's just unreal
Oh, you can't get no satisfaction when your mind is overacting
And you don't give your self the love you need

So get on up and get down, down, down
With some good ol' funky, funky love
(Love is the thing you need)
Fellas
(Love is the thing you need)
Ah, hit it

Make you feel so good
Make your body shake like crazy
Give yourself a get and go, yeah
(Love is the thing you need)
The midnight hour

(Love is the thing you need)
(Love is the thing you need)
(Love is the thing you need)
Sing it again
(Love is the thing you need)

(Love is the thing you need)
When that somebody finds you down
(Love is the thing you need)
Love comes up from underground
(Love is the thing you need)

Oh, love
(Oh, love)

Yeah, some people they don't know that it's the only way to go
If you wanna live a happy, happy life yeah, yeah
Oh, there ain't no doubt about it, we just can't live without it
No we can't, no we can't, sing it to me children

(Love is the thing you need)
One more time, yeah
(Love is the thing you need)
Sing it, yeah
Once a day, twice a day, everyday
(Love is the thing you need)

What you say now
Once a day, twice a day
Good God, everyday
(Love is the thing you need)

You gotta, gotta have love
You gotta, gotta have love
You gotta, gotta have love
Y'all know what I'm talkin' about

(Love is the thing you need)
You gotta, gotta have love
You gotta, gotta have love
You gotta, gotta have love
Love is the thing you need
Don't you stop, don't you stop
