I wanna mother you, smother you
With a love you've never known
I wanna talk to you, say sweet things to you
Let you know that I'm yours alone

Now, you need a lot of loving
And my darlin', you need it now
You've been alone for so long
You've forgotten what love is all about

Let me rock you in the cradle of my arms
Let my love protect you from all harm
I'll be your shelter when you want me to
I'll be your comfort when you need me to

I wanna mother you, smother you
With a love that's gentle and true
I wanna talk to you, say sweet things to you
And my love will see you through

Put your head on my shoulder
Put your hand, darling, in mine
Just let me take you in my arms
And love away the loneliness you hide

And when life sometimes gets you down
And you need to cry
Oh, I'll be standing by your side
To be your strength and be your guide

I wanna mother you, smother you
Show me what love is about
I wanna talk to you, say sweet things to you
Take away all of your doubt

Just let me mother you, smother you
With a love you've never known
I wanna talk to you, say sweet things to you
Let me know that I'm yours alone

Ooh, mother you, smother you
With a love you've never known
I wanna talk to you, say sweet things to you
Let me know that I'm yours alone
Mother you, smother you
