Oh, she's my baby
Let me tell you why
Hey, she drive me crazy
She's the apple of my eye

'Cause she is my girl and she can never do wrong
If I dream too much at night, somebody please bring me down

Hey, I love that little lady
I got to be her fool
Ain't no other like my baby
I can break a golden rule

'Cause I get down on my knee, yeah, oh, I pray the love won't die
And if I always try to please, I don't know the reason why, yeah

If she will come back on this day to me
Oh, yeah, every little bit, every little bit, every little bit m'my love I'll give to you, girl
Every little bit, every little bit, every little bit, every, every little bit of my love, hoh

Hit me

(Guitar Solo)

I don't have to go by plane, I ain't gotta go by car
I don't care just where my darlin' is, people, I just don't care how far
I'm gonna crawl, yeah, I'm gonna crawl, now
I don't care if I got to go back home, I don't care whether I gotta start again, babe
I'm gonna crawl, I'm gonna crawl, now, ahhh, hoo-hoo

I don't want no car, babe, I said, yeah, hey-hey, heah
She give me good lovin', she give me good lovin'
She give me good lovin', she give me good lovin'
My baby give me good lovin', woo, yes, I love her
A-yes, I love her, yes, I love her, I wanna crawl

Influences: There seems to be a number of lyrical (if not musical) references in this song to various songs by Wilson Pickett, O.V. Wright, and Otis Redding [Otis' Just One More Day sounds very similar - thanks, Steve]. The IFMTL mentions the Wilson Pickett song It's Too Late specifically.
