-Words and Music by Philip T. Pugh and Sherman Marshall

Ever since I met ya, seems I can't forgetcha
The thought of you keeps runnin' through the back of my mind
Every time I'm near ya, I get that urge to feel ya
Just touchin' you and lovin' you makes ev'rything right
(Tell me how ya feel, baby)
I never knew love before (oh no) then came you, you, then came you
I never knew love before, then came you then came you
You

Now that I've found ya, how did I live without ya?
(I don't know, baby)
It's plain to see you're all I need to satisfy me
I'm so darned proud of ya, I wanna sing about ya
(Sing it, sing it, sing it, baby)
All I know, ya made a 'fro by touchin' my hand
Oh, uh, oh I never knew love before, then came you (you), then came you, ooh
I never knew love before, then came you (ooh, ooh, ooh), then came you
Hey, hey, hey, then came you

Whoa, oh, uh, oh, oh, oh
I never knew love before, then came you, then came you
I never knew love before, then came you (you, ooh, ooh) then came you

Whoa, oh, uh, oh, oh, oh
I never knew love before, then came you (hey, hey) then came you, you
I never knew love before (hey) then came you
(With your lovin' touch) you-ooh-ooh then came (yeah)(hey, hey)

Oh, uh, no I never knew love before
(I got to hand it to you, baby) then came you
