  • If you need someone to count on, count me in
    Someone you can rely on through thick and thin
    When you start to count the ones that you might ever doubt
    If you think of counting me, count me out
    When you count the ones that want you, count me, too
    And if I'm not first on your list, count me blue
    Just be sure you count on me and when the countin's through
    Count me madly in love with you
    If you need someone to count on when you're down
    And all your other friends you've lost, count me found
    Just be sure you count on me when you're down and out
    Count me in through thick and thin or it don't count
    When you count the ones that want you, count me, too
    And if I'm not first on your list, count me blue
    Just be sure you count on me and when the countin's through
    Count me madly in love with you
    (ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh)
    (ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh)
    FADE
