They tell me, Gladys
You know you love too hard
But I tell 'em
Not nearly hard enough
They say, girlfriend
You know you go too far
Around the world ain't far enough

'Cause I only want to show you What you mean to me
Every time I'm reachin' out to you
I start to sink
I may be drowning with desire
From your sweet, sweet touch
I don't care what people say
'Cause I love you so much

Love overboard
(Love overboard)
My love's in need of help
Love overboard
(Love overboard)
I sure can't help myself
Love overboard
(Love overboard)
I don't know what to do
Love overboard
(Love overboard)
I'm so in love with you, baby

Baby, they say I work too hard
Not really when it comes to lovin' you
You've got my overtime
You bring me peace of mind
And there's so much I'd like to do

I only wanna find the love
My heart's been searchin' for
I'd climb most every mountain
Swim from shore to shore
Just to feel the soft caress
From your warm embrace
In this ocean of love
No one can take your place

Love overboard
(Love overboard)
My love's in need of help
Love overboard
(Love overboard)
I sure can't help myself
Love overboard
(Love overboard)
I don't know what to do
Love overboard
(Love overboard)
I'm so in love with you

Love overboard
(Love overboard)
I'm running out of time
Love overboard
(Love overboard)
I'm 'bout to lose my mind
Love overboard
(Love overboard)
I don't know what to do
Love overboard
(Love overboard)
I'm so in love with you

All my friends keep telling me
To let you go
Between the two of us
How could they ever know
About the love you been givin'
Seems some people like to live
Their life so very close

I like to let go some time
So I can flow with the times I've done made up my mind
You're the only one for me
Oh, my love's overboard
Ooh, ooh, ooh
Ooh, ooh, ooh
Gladys, Gladys, Gladys, ooh

I'm overboard
Can't help myself
I'm overboard
Ooh, part of me is deep
But your love so very sweet

Love overboard
Love overboard
My love's in need of help
Love's overboard
Sure can't help myself
Love overboard
I don't know what to do
Love overboard
I'm so in love with you
Love overboard
(Love overboard)
Running out of time
Love overboard
'Bout to lose my mind
Love overboard
(Love)
I don't know what to do
Love overboard
(Love overboard)
I'm so in love with you

Spinnin', fallin',
People, ooh, people,
(Love overboard)
Love's callin',
I'm fallin',
S-O-S-O-S-O-S-O-S

Love's overboard
(Love overboard)
My love's in need of help
Love overboard
(Love overboard)
I just can't help myself
Love overboard
(Love overboard)
I don't know what to do
Love overboard
(Love overboard)
So in love with you
