I, ya, ya, I

I want you the right way, I want you
But I want you to want me too
Want you to want me, baby
Just like I want you

Oh, I give you all the love I want in return, sweet darlin'
But half a love is all I feel, ooh, it's too bad, it's just too sad
You don't want me now for lovin' but I'm gonna change your mind
Someway, somehow, oh, baby

I want you the right way, I want you
But I want you to want me too
I want you to want me, baby
Just like I want you

This one way love is just a fantasy, oh, sugar
To share is precious, pure and fair
Don't play with somethin' you should cherish for life, oh, baby
Don't you wanna care? Ain't it lonely out there?

I want you, I want you, baby, I want you
But I want you to want me too
Oh, I want to get down, baby
When I get down with you

I want you the right way, baby, I want you, baby
But I want you to want me too, baby
Got the, got the, got the, love me so
Oh, the way that I love you, ooh
I want you the right way, I want you
