Lyrics

It's something you got babe
Make me work all day
Something you got baby
Make me bring home all my pay
Something you got baby
You ought to know
My my, whoa whoa
I love you so

It's something you got baby
It makes the world go round
It's something you got baby
Gives you a happy home
It's something you got baby
You ought to know, oh yeah
My my, whoa whoa
I love you so

[Instrumental]

Something you got baby
Make me work all day
Something you got baby
Make me bring home all my pay
Something you got baby
You ought to know, oh yeah
My my, whoa whoa
I love you so
