  • Baby, baby, baby
    From the day I saw you
    Really, really wanted to catch your eye
    Somethin' special 'bout you
    I must really like you
    'Cause not a lot of guys are worth my time, ooh

    Oh baby, baby, baby
    It's getting kind of crazy
    'Cause you are taking over my mind

    And it feels like ooh
    You don't know my name
    I swear, it feels like ooh
    You don't know my name
    (Round and round and round we go, will you ever know)

    Oh, baby, baby, baby
    I see us on our first date
    Doing everything that makes me smile
    When we had our first kiss
    It happened on a Thursday
    Ooh it set my soul on fire

    Ooh baby, baby, baby
    I can't wait for the first time
    My imagination's running wild

    It feels like ooh
    You don't know my name
    And I swear it baby, it feels like ooh
    You don't know my name
    (Round and round and round we go, will you ever know)

    I'm sayin', he don't even know what he's doin' to me
    Got me feelin' all crazy inside
    I'm feelin' like, oh
    Doing nothing I've ever done
    For anyone's attention
    Take notice of what's in front of you

    'Cause did I mention (oh)
    You bout' to miss a good thing
    And you'll never know how good it feels
    To have, all my affection
    And you'll never get a chance to experience, my lovin' (oh)
    'Cause my lovin' feels like

    Ooh
    You don't know my name
    And I swear it feels like
    Ooh
    You don't my name

    You don't know my name
    Baby, baby I swear
    It's like
    Ooh

    You don't know my name
    It feels like
    Ooh
    And you don't my name
    And I swear on my mother and father it feels like
    Ooh
    Ooh
