Carpenters – Makin' Love In The Afternoon lyrics

Makin' love in the afternoon

Makin' love to another Beatle tune

And I know you're feelin' the same way too

All alone on a sunny day

On our own and we had to get away

And I know that I couldn't live without you

Don't ever leave me alone

Baby without you, I'd never make it alone

Makin' love on a sunny day

Makin' love in a very special way

And I hope you're feelin' the way I do

When you're here, when you're next to me,

When you're near it's the only place to be

Cause I know that I couldn't live without you

Don't ever leave me alone

Livin'without you, I couldn't make it alone

(*) Why wait for tomorrow?

Tomorrow may never come

Why wait for the evening shadows?

Something behind me, will always remind me

To wait for the morning

Knowing you'll be here soon

And then we can be together

In the afternoon

(**) Makin'love (Makin'love)

Makin' love in the afternoon

Makin' love (Makin' love)

Makin' love in the afternoon

Repeat (*)

Repeat (**)
