The Shirelles – The Things I Want To Hear lyrics

You say you think I'm beautiful
You say you live for my touch
Tell me the things I want to hear
Don't you know you can never say too much

You gotta keep tellin' me things I want to hear
You gotta say pretty words every time you're near
You gotta show me that you care
So I'll know you'll be there right through the years
Please tell me, please tell me things I want to hear
Pretty words, pretty words, pretty words

Tell me the words that touch my heart
Promise you want me to stay
Tell me that we will never part
Say I'm the one you'll be loving more each day


Words I wanna hear (pretty words)
...& fade
