[text from the original TV registration]

I donít know why, I feel so sad
I long to try something I never had
Never had no kissiní
Oh, what Iíve been missiní
Lover man, oh, where can you be?

The night is cold and Iím all alone
Iíd give my soul just to call you my own
Got a moon above me
But nobody to love me
Lover man, oh, where where can you be?

Iíve heard it said
That the thrill of romance
Can be like oh heavenly dream
I go to bed with a prayer
That you shall make love
Oh, make love to me

Someday youíll come
And youíll dry all my tears
Then whisper sweet
Little things in my ear
Hugging and kissing
Oh, I say God what I've been missing
Lover man, oh, where where can you be?

<instrumental interlude>

I've heard it said
That the romance
Can be like oh heavenly dream
I go to bed with a prayer
That you tell me make love
Make make love to me

Someday youíll come
And youíll dry all my tears
And whisper sweet
Litte little things in my ear
Hugging and kissing
Oh, I say God what I've been missing
Lover man, where can you be?
