What burns and glows without flame?
What lives and grows without rain?
What brings a smile that lasts for a little while
That makes me cry without shame?

How can you please me then torture
And tease me and do it in the name of love?

Don't you know how to be nice?
You'd leave me without thinking twice
Your wall has an oven when you want a little lovin'
And you go from fire to ice

How can you please me then torture
And tease me and do it in the name of love?

I'm comin', I'm a goin', is it rainin' or snowin'?
I got no way of knowin' your mind

You make me rise and fall
You make me stumble and crawl
So baby, get with it, you might as well admit it
Don't love your daddy at all

'Cause how can you please me then torture
And tease me and do it in the name of love?

You make me rise and fall
You make me stumble and crawl
So baby, get with it, you might as well admit it
Don't love your daddy at all

'Cause how can you please me then torture
And tease me and do it in the name of love?
Do it in the name of love, do it in the name of love
