  • When I first laid my eyes upon you
    I knew right then and there you were the one
    Eyes so deep, you send me melting
    And then you smiled as if to say, “Oh, yeah”

    But then you seemed to change your mind
    You looked away like you were, oh, so shy
    Is the game you're playing hard to get
    Won't you tell me, oh, ho

    Want me, want me like I want you
    To touch you and to hold you tight
    Don't you want me like I want you
    To kiss and love all through the night

    I'd like to know more than just your name
    Did you come here alone or with someone
    If only you would open up
    And let me know just where you're comin' from

    Are you lookin' for a new love
    Or does commitment seem to bring you down
    Is that a look of yes or is it no
    Please don't tease me, ho...oh...

    Want me, don't you want me
    To touch you and to hold you tight
    Don't you want me like I want you
    To kiss and love all through the night

    Oh, whoa, yeah
    Don't you want
    Oh, whoa, yeah
    Don't you want

    Want me, don't you want me
    To touch you and to hold you tight
    Don't you want me like I want you
    To kiss and love all through the night

    Are you lookin' for a new love
    Or does commitment seem to bring you down
    Is that a look of yes or is it no
    Please don't tease me, oh...oh...

    Want me, don't you want me
    To touch you and to hold you tight
    Don't you want me like I want you
    To kiss and love all through the night

    Want me, don't you want me
    To touch you and to hold you tight
    Don't you want me like I want you
    To kiss and love all through the night

    Want me (Oh, oh), don't you want me (Yeah)
    (Don't you want me)
    Want me (Oh, oh), don't you want me (Yeah, yeah)
