Charted: 2
  • Treat me like a fool,
    Treat me mean and cruel,
    But love me.

    Wring my faithful heart,
    Tear it all apart,
    But love me.

    If you ever go,
    Darling, I'll be oh so lonely
    I'll be sad and blue,
    Crying over you, dear only.

    I would beg and steal
    (she would beg and steal)
    Just to feel
    (just just to feel)
    Your heart
    (I want your heart)
    Beatin' so close to mine

    If you ever go,
    Darling, I'll be oh so lonely
    I'll be sad and blue,
    Crying over you, dear only.

    I would beg and steal
    (she would beg and steal)
    Just to feel
    (just just to feel)
    Your heart
    (I want your heart)
    Beatin' so close to mine

    If you ever go,
    Darling, I'll be oh so lonely
    Beggin' on knees,
    All I ask is please, please love me
    Oh yeah Writer/s: FELIX CAVALIERE
