  • Well you got me shakin' from my head to the bottom of my toes
    Shakin' all over like nobody knows
    With your head on my shoulder and your hand on my knee
    Losin' up baby now mama can't see

    All I can do is hold on tight
    And make it together all through the night
    Mama don't mend when mama don't see
    It's gettin' so hot but you're burnin' me

    I wanna touch too much of your tender love
    A touch too much of your good good lovin'
    A touch too much of your tender love
    Now I'm runnin' a fever of 90 above

    Well it ain't easy to figure out the way I feel
    Somehow honey it don't seem real
    Gimme the fire of my desire
    Now the flames of love burn higher and higher

    Every little word you say to me
    Make my back bone shiver, I get weak at the knee
    Oh my my, you turn me on
    How can anyone say that you won't let love

    I wanna touch too much of your tender love
    A touch too much of your good good lovin'
    A touch too much of your tender love
    Now I'm runnin' a fever of 90 above

    Ah, come on now honey
    Let's slow it all down, just a little
    I wanna feel your touch
    'Cause honey, you know you make me shake
    And I just want you to do some, a little bit for me
    Oh honey, you know what I want

    I I I I I wanna touch too much of your tender love
    A touch too much of your good good lovin'
    A touch too much of your tender love
    Now I'm runnin' a fever of 90 above Lyrics licensed and provided by LyricFind
