  • Whoa! I feel good, I knew that I would, now
    I feel good, I knew that I would, now
    So good, so good, I got you

    Whoa! I feel nice, like sugar and spice
    I feel nice, like sugar and spice
    So nice, so nice, I got you

    When I hold you in my arms
    I know that I can't do no wrong
    And when I hold you in my arms
    My love won't do you no harm

    And I feel nice, like sugar and spice
    I feel nice, like sugar and spice
    So nice, so nice, I got you

    When I hold you in my arms
    I know that I can't do no wrong
    And when I hold you in my arms
    My love can't do me no harm

    And I feel nice, like sugar and spice
    I feel nice, like sugar and spice
    So nice, so nice, 'cause I got you

    Whoa! And I feel good, I knew that I would, now
    I feel good, I knew that I would
    So good, so good, 'cause I got you
    So good, so good, 'cause I got you
    So good, so good, 'cause I got you
