--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

It's so good lovin' somebody
And that somebody loves you back

To be loved and be loved in return
It's the only thing that my heart desires
Just appreciate the little things I do
Oh, you're the one who's got me inspired
Keep on liftin', liftin' me higher

So good, good lovin' somebody
And that somebody loves you back
It's so good needin' somebody
And that somebody needs you back

We can build a world of love, a life of joy
Make our goal each other's happiness
I will do for you anything that I can
Oh, everyday I wanna do a little more
Do a little more, just a little bit more

It's so good, good lovin' somebody
And that somebody loves you back and that's a fact
It's so good wantin' somebody
And that somebody wants you back

Said it's so good

Oh...ho...

To be loved and be loved in return
It's the only thing that my heart desires
Just appreciate the little things I do
Oh, you're the one who's got me inspired
Keep on liftin', liftin' me higher

So good lovin' somebody
And that somebody loves you back and that's a fact
It's so good needin' somebody
And that somebody needs you back

Said now 70/30
Now 60/40
Talkin' 'bout a 5-/50 love

Said it's so good lovin' somebody
And that somebody loves you back, yeah

Said now 70/30
Now 60/40
Talkin' 'bout a 5-/50 love, yeah

It's so good, good lovin' somebody
And that somebody loves you back, yeah
It's so good, good

I'm so glad that there's you
I've experienced over and over when
I've given 80% and she's given 20%
Now she's givin' 70% and I'm givin' 30
But you just don't know how it feels to have somebody
That you can share your life
Somebody that you don't mind talkin' to
Somebody that you don't mind goin' the middle of the road
I know a lot of guys today they wish they had somebody just like you
I don't know when the last time I told you
But girl, you make me so very happy
I think we've got something that a lot of people don't seem to have
Talkin' 'bout a 50/50 love, yeah
