I've been in love for a short time.
I had a little trouble makin' up my mind.
Somthin' got in my way, babe.
I find it really hard for me to say.
I know that my head was hot, girl.
Hot enough to hit the spot that makes you trot.
But, girl I ain't no liar.
Gonna' set your little heart on fire. yeah.


I've had my hit and miss, girl.
I'm ready now to settle right down to this.
I hope that your love is true, babe.
As true as the love I hold for you.
There's one thing that I'd say, girl.
I love you for ever and a day.
Now, girl I ain't no liar.
I'm gonna' set your little heart on fire. yeah.


(chorus)
'cause when I'm thinking of you.
Thinkin' about you.
My heart beats faster I'm goin' for the pastor.
I got me a love and I'm gonna' make it last, girl.
Girl.
'cause when I think about you.
Thinkin' about you.
My heart beats faster I'm goin' for the pastor.
I got me a love and I'm gonna' make it last, girl.


Ohhhhh ...


I really think you're brave, babe.
For cuttin' loose that bloodthirsty dave the knave.
Now davey, his love was strong, babe.
But, you're better off with a love that's long.
You never have to be alone, girl.
'cause I'll be there when you come back home.
Now, girl I ain't no liar.
I'm gonna' set your little heart on fire. ahh, ohh ...


(chorus)
