I'd rather be with you, yeah
Yeah, I'd rather be with you
I'd rather be with you, yeah
Yeah I'd rather be with you

I'd rather be with you
Until I'm through
Oh yes, I do
I'd rather be with you
Until that day we'll fly away
I just love
That smiling face
In the early sun
If I can't have you
To myself, then life's no fun

I'd rather be with you, yeah
Yeah, I'd rather be with you
I'd rather be with you, yeah
Yeah I'd rather be with you
I wanna hold you hand
Oh, if I can just be your man
I wanna be you friend
Not now and then
But until the end
I just love the way you act
And that's a fact
I wanna be your number one
So picture that

Maybe the next time
Maybe the next time
Maybe the next time
Maybe the next time
I'd rather be with you
Yeah
Yeah, I'd rather be with you

I'd rather be with you
Until I'm through
Oh, yes I do
I'd rather be with you
Until that day we'll fly away
I just love
That smiling face
In the early sun
If I can't have you to myself
Then life's no fun

I'd rather be with you, yeah
Yeah, I'd rather be with you
I'd rather be with you, yeah
Yeah I'd rather be with you
Oh babe
Well, uh, you might think
I'm trying to be funny
But I'm really serious
This time, baby
(I'd rather be with you)
Even though, uh
It's a cold world, baby
But you know deep down
Inside that I do love ya
(I'd rather be with you)
I know I sound strange
But I really mean it
We gonna make it this time baby
(I'd rather be with you)
You're the only one
I really love now
I'm coming at you
With both hands
Tied behind my back, baby
(I'd rather be with you, yeah)
You got me
I'm coming at you, get ready
I'm gonna stick
My love in your eye, baby
(I'd rather be with you, yeah)
You can see me coming baby
Just coming all over you
(Yeah, I'd rather be with you)
