Lyrics


I don't want you be no slave

I don't want you work all day

I don't want 'cause I'm sad and blue

I just want to make love to you, baby

Love to you, baby

Love to you, baby

Love to you


I don't want you cook my bread

I don't want you make my bed

I don't want your money too

I just want to make love to you, baby

Love to you, baby

Love to you, baby

Love to you


Well I can tell by the way that you twitch and walk

See by the way that you baby talk

Know by the way that you treat your man

I can love you, baby, till the night train


I don't want you wash my clothes

I don't want you leave the home

I don't want 'cause I'm sad and blue

I just want to make love to you, baby

Love to you, baby

Love to you, baby

Love to you


Yeah


I don't want you wash my clothes

I don't want you leave the home

I don't want 'cause I'm sad and blue

I just want to make love to you, baby

Love to you, baby

Love to you, baby

Sweet love to you, baby

Love to you, baby

I just wanna make love to you, baby

Love to you, baby

Love to you, baby

Love to you

I just, I just want ot make love to you, baby

I just want to make love
