Don't want to meet your family, I don't want to know your friends
I don't even need to know if this story has an end
I don't want to get no card on Valentine's day
Please don't write me letters, babe, inviting me to stay
Don't want to spend my evenings staring at the clock
Don't wanna be a-worrying every time your parents knock
But this sweet song within me is needing to be heard
We both know the rhythm, now come on and say the word

I just wanna be loved by you
Loved by you...
I wanna be loved by you

Don't want no big commitment, don't wanna plan our lives
Don't need no fancy dinners by romantic candlelight
This fire inside me is burning to get out
I don't care who hears me - I just wanna shout

I just wanna be loved by you
Loved by you...
I wanna be loved by you

Our love don't need maturing like some fine old claret wine
Let's uncork the bottle, now - I'm tired of wasting time

I just wanna be loved by you
Loved by you...
I wanna be loved by you
