It takes a lot of sand for a desert
It takes a lot of water for a sea
It takes a lot of lovin' for a baby
And it takes a lot of you for me.

It takes a lot of sun to warm the springtime
It takes a lot of honey for a bee
It takes a lot of heart to write a lovesong
And it takes a lot of you for me.

Well, a river's always looking for an ocean
And a lumberjack he looks for a tree
Well, I found the one what I was looking for
And it's gonna take a whole lotta you for me.

It takes a boat to float on the water
I'm tryin' to tell you darlin' can't you see
It takes a lot of love to keep me happy
And it takes a lot of you for me.

Oh, it takes a lot of you for me.

A river's always looking for an ocean
And a lumberjack he looks for a tree
Well, I found the one what I was looking for
And it's gonna take a whole lotta you for me.

It takes a boat to float on the water
I'm tryin' to tell you darlin' can't you see
It takes a lot of love to keep me happy
And it takes a lot of you for me.

Oh, it takes a lot of you for me...
