lyrics

provided for research and private study only (see above for copyright details):

If you got a minute, baby

if you’ve got a minute baby
call me, I’ll be waiting here, patiently
if you’ve got a minute baby
calm down, you’ll find me hanging around

I’m doing nothing baby, ’cept thinking of you
I’m with you here, I know what to do
so come on to me baby, take up my time
if you calm down I’ll make you mine

there is nothing I would rather do
than spend each lonely minute with you
with you in my arms I know
I never want to let you go

if you’ve got a minute baby
make me feel good you know I can’t help this feeling of love
so come on to me baby, come on down
you’ll find me hanging around
you’ll find me hanging around

with you in my arms I know
I’ll never want to let you go

if you’ve got a minute baby
if you’ve got a minute baby, mm
