How sweet it is to be loved by you
How sweet it is to be loved by you

I needed the shelter of someone's arms
and there you were
I needed someone to understand
my ups and downs
and there you were
With sweet love and devotion
deeply touching my emotion
I want to stop and thank you baby
I just want to stop and thank you baby

How sweet it is to be loved by you
How sweet it is to be loved by you

I close my eyes at night,
wondering where would I be
without you in my life
Everything I did was just a bore,
everywhere I went
it seems I'd been there before
But you brightened up for me
all of my days
With a love so sweet in so many ways
I want to stop and thank you baby
I want to stop and thank you baby

How sweet it is to be loved by you
How sweet it is to be loved by you

You were better to me
than I've been to myself
For me, there's you and
there ain't nobody else
I want to stop and thank you baby
I just want to stop and thank you baby

[Repeat and fade:]
How sweet it is to be loved by you
How sweet it is to be loved by you
