I want you to be my little lover
I want you to be my power glide

Oh oh oh, little girl
Don't misunderstand me
'Cause there's a rumor goin' 'round
Somebody's gonna let me down
And I don't know what it's all about
Or if it's true
I'm countin' on you

I want you to drive my El Dorado
I want you to fly my aeroplane

Oh oh oh, little girl
Don't misunderstand me
'Cause there's a rumor goin' 'round
Somebody's gonna let me down
And I don't know what it's all about
Or if it's true
I'm countin' on you
Countin' on you

Well, I saw your reflection in the river
And I swear, I heard you in the wind

Oh oh oh, little girl
Don't misunderstand me
'Cause there's a rumor goin' 'round
Somebody's gonna let me down
And I don't know what it's all about
Or if it's true
I'm countin' on you

Countin' on you
I'm countin' on you, woo
Oh, countin' on you, woo aye
Countin' on you
