Yeah, yeah, yeah

To get stones from a rock, you've got to break it
Yeah, yeah, yeah
To get bread from dough, you've got to bake it
Yeah, yeah, yeah

To get water from a faucet, you've got to turn it
And if you want my love, if you want my love
You've got to earn it, earn it, earn it, earn it
Yeah, yeah, yeah

To get fire from a match, you've got to strike it
Strike it, strike it, strike it, strike it
To get the feeling from a kiss, you've got to like it
Like it, like it, like it, like it

To get ashes from wood, you've got to burn it
And if you want my love, if you want my love
You've got to earn it, earn it, earn it, earn it

You've got to treat me kind, all the time
Throw the other guys right out of your mind
Yeah, yeah

Now listen

To make broken things work, you've got to fix them
Fix them, fix them, fix them, fix them
To make two things one, you've got to mix them
Mix them, mix them, mix them, mix them

To get butter from milk, you've got to churn it
And if you want my love, if you want my love
You've got to earn it, earn it, earn it, earn it

If you deserve it you can get it
I'll be glad to see you with it
Just show me that you love me
And that you're thinking of me
You can get it in a hurry
