O'Jays – I Should Be Your Lover lyrics

Oh yeah, come on
Baby, tellin' you, oh, yeah
I should be your lover

Listen, baby, you come to me
To tell all your troubles too
You tell me how it makes your little world so blue
Girl, I've been lovin' you so very long
There ain't no reason for you to be treated so wrong

Telling you, I should be your lover, yeah, yeah

Listen, baby, you know, I'm always here
To heal the blues when you come around
Tryin' my best to pick your feelin's up off the ground
Girl, don't you know it's a shame and I dare to see it
Please, give the love to me that you givin' in him

Telling you, I should be your lover
I'll make everything alright to you, baby
I'm telling you, I should be your lover

I'm the one, I'm the one you needs, baby
Come one, I should be your lover
I'll make everything alright to you, baby
