  • Shoo do, shoo
    Shoo do, shoo do do do do
    Shoo do, oh shoo do do do, shoo do

    Oh, many say
    That I'm too young (to let you know)
    To let you know just just where I'm coming from
    Oh, but you will see
    That it's just a matter of time
    (My love will surely)
    My love will surely make you mine

    Ooh, living in a world of ghetto life
    Everybody around seems so uptight
    But nothing's wrong
    It's alright with my man, my man
    I like the kinds of ways we have our fun
    His loving ways send me on and on
    Yeah, hey, with my man
    People out there can understand
    I'm giving him something he can feel
    Ah ha ha, to let him know (this love is real)
    My love is real

    Yeah, I'm giving him something he can feel
    Yes I am baby
    To let you know (this love is real)
    My love is real
    (This love is real)

    So much love for us to sing
    So much hope for material things
    Are they only in my dreams?
    Well, so I, so I write this song for you
    To prove that real things do come true
    (Tell me what it means)
    Tell me, tell me what it means, I wanna know, baby

    Living in a world of ghetto life
    Everybody around seems so uptight
    But nothing's wrong
    It's alright with my man
    I like the kinds of ways we have our fun
    His loving ways send me on and on
    Ooh, with my man
    (People out there) People out there, can you understand
    I'm giving him something he can feel
    I sure want you to have it, baby
    To let him know (this love is real)
    My love, my love is is real, real, real
