  • I'm telling you now
    I'm telling you right away
    I'll be staying for many a day
    I'm in love with you now
    I'm telling you now
    I'll say what you want to hear
    I'll be saying for many a year
    I'm in love with you now
    Do you think I'm foolin'
    When I say I love you?
    I love you
    Maybe you'll believe me
    When I'm finally through, through, through, through
    I'm telling you now
    I know it's been said before
    Say you love me, and I will be sure
    I'm in love with you now
    I'm telling you now
    I'm telling you right away
    I'll be staying for many a day
    I'm in love with you now
    Do you think I'm foolin'
    When I say I love you?
    I love you
    Maybe you'll believe me
    When I'm finally through, through, through, through
    I'm telling you now
    I know it's been said before
    Say you love me, and I will be sure
    I'm in love with you now
    I'm in love with you now
    I'm telling you now Writer/s: Freddie Garrity, Mitch Murray
