It was love that we needed, hmm, hmm
(We needed love) It was love
(It was love that we needed) oh, yeah
(Yeah, yeah)
Love...

It was love (it was love)
It was love (that we needed)
We needed love, darlin'
Yeah, yeah-eh
(We needed love)

Somewhat impossible
No idea what was happenin' to me
All of my life, things were cool till now
And then the feelin', the strangest feelin' came over me
(Ooh, oh, na, na, na, na, na, na, na)

My happiness just came with such surprise
The water just welled up in my eyes
And all I could see was your pretty, pretty face (pretty face)
Jumpin' up and down all around ('round) the place

It was love (it was love)
It was love (that we needed) that we needed
It was love, it was love, it was love, it was love
We needed love

It was love (it was love)
It was love (that we needed) that we needed, oh yeah
Yeah, yeah
(We needed love)

Never, never, never did I know till now
My deep, deep feelings for another
When just romancin' in the world
Dancin' with you, girl
I knew we'd soon discover, soon discover
(Ooh, oh, na, na, na, na, na, na, na)

My happiness just came with such surprise
The water just welled up in my eyes
And all I could see was your pretty, pretty face (pretty face)
Jumpin' up and down all around ('round) the place

It was love (it was love)
It was love (that we needed) that we needed
It was love, it was love, it was love, it was love
We needed love

It was love (it was love)
It was love (that we needed) that we needed, yeah, yeah-eh
We needed love
Sing it, girl

Loves, merry go 'round, goes around and 'round (whoo, ooh)
Loves, merry go 'round, goes 'round (round)
Loves, merry go 'round (listen)

Loves, merry go 'round, goes around and 'round
(Romancin' in the world)
(Just dancin' with you, girl)
Loves, merry go 'round, goes 'round (you're my world)
Loves, merry go 'round (oh, yeah, yeah, yeah)

Loves, merry go 'round, goes around and 'round
(Romancin' in the world)
Just dancin' with you, girl
Loves, merry go 'round, goes round (you're my world)
Loves, merry go 'round (whoo, ooh)

It was love (it was love)
It was love, it was love (that we needed) that we needed
It was love, it was love, it was love, it was love, it was love
We needed love

It was love (it was love) it was love
Love that we needed (that we needed)
We needed love, darlin'
We needed love, love, love, love
We needed love

Loves, merry go 'round, goes around and round
(Loves, merry go round, goes around and round)
(Round and around)
That love, merry go round, goes round
(Goes round and around, round and around, round)
Loves, merry go round
We needed love

Loves, merry go round, goes around and 'round
(All that we needed)
(It was all that we needed, yeah, yeah, yeah)
That love, merry go 'round, goes 'round
Loves, merry go round (ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh)
We needed love

Loves, merry go round, goes around and round
(I'm so proud of you, I'm so proud of you)
That love, merry go round, goes round
(Oh, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah)
Loves, merry go round
We needed love
(All that we needed was love)

Loves, merry go round, goes around and round
(All that we needed was love)
That love, merry go round, goes round'
