Hey Lorene girl, huh
Bring yourself home to me

You've got my mind
Messed up and shattered
I'm at the point
Where no, nothin' matter

You got me beggin'
Pleadin' and needin'
Oh, sweet Lorene, girl, all right

The places that we used to go
I can't stand to go there no more
'Cause the smilin' faces we used to see
I bow my head 'cause they're starin' at me, now

You got me scared
Weepin' and moanin'
Oh, sweet Lorene, girl, all right
Let me tell you about it

If you want my lovin', girl
You got to get it home to me, girl
I'm gonna kiss you from head to toe
Love you more and more
When you get here
I'm gonna sock it to you, oh ha, oh yeah

Do it, do it, oh sweet Lorene, all right, yeah girl

You got to hurry, don't stay no longer
'Cause my need for you is gettin' mighty stronger
Five long years I been sufferin'
Tryin' to tell you, girl, I ain't had nothin'

You got me beggin'
Pleadin' and weepin'
Oh, sweet Lorene, girl, all right

You got me [Incomprehensible]
Now come on and love me, [Incomprehensible]
You got me [Incomprehensible] baby
You don't know what it means

I got to get you girl
Love is on my mind
I got make it with you baby
I got to [Incomprehensible]
