Do it, do it, you can do it
Do it in the name of love

(Do it) baby (do it)
I like to see you
(Do it in the name of love)

Oh, woman, why don't you (do it)
I'd like to see you try (do it)
Why don't you do it
(Do it in the name of love)

My mama told me a long time ago
Remember, in love
There's no easy road

You've got to give more than you get
You never know what to expect

Hey, sometimes you're up (up)
Sometimes you're down (down)
Sometimes you whole word will
Come crashing down (crashing down)

Oh, love can be
No more than you make it
Hang on in there
And you're gonna make it
Just get your strength
From the Lord above

Hey, do it (do it) do (do it)
Do it in the name of love
(Do it) oh, yeah (do it)
Why don't you do it
In the name of love (do it)

You've got to work (work)
Fight (fight)
Try with all your might
Get your strength from
The Lord up above, oh, oh, hey
Do it in the name of love

(Do it) and I'd like to see you try
(Do it) why don't you
(Do it in the name of love)

I'd like to see you try (do it)
Why don't you (do it) oh, no, no
(Do it in the name of love)

There's temptations all around
Don't you let it get you down

Think about your woman
(Think about your woman)
Think about your man
(Think about your man)
Keep it together
Stay hand in hand
(Hand in hand)

Sometimes you cause
Each other so much pain
And then again
You're sweet as sugar cane

You've got to show
What you give for each other
Then you will succeed as lovers

Just get your strength from
The Lord up above (Lord above)
And do it, do it
Do it in the name of love

(Do it) yeah, hey, hey (do it)
Why don't you do it in
The name of love (do it)

You've got to work (work)
Fight (fight)
Try with all your might
Get your strength from
The Lord up above
(From the Lord above) oh

Do it in the name of love
(Do it) why don't you try (do it)
Do it, do it, do it
(Do it in the name of love)

Hey, honey
Why don't you try (do it)
You can do it (do it)
Why don't you
(Do it in the name of love)
