  • Well you can just believe
    I'm the only girl in your life
    I'll be your sugar in the morning
    And the sweet stuff you need at night
    And you can just make believe
    When it comes down to makin' love
    I'll satisfy your every need
    And every fantasy you think up

    [Chorus]
    So when you need a little peace of mind
    Come on over boy, anytime
    I'll keep you happy and so satisfied
    In my house, in my house

    So when you need some lovin' tenderness
    And it's me baby that you miss
    Here's the key to unlock the door
    To my house (to my house)
    wo-oo-oo-oo- in my house
    wo-oo-oo-oo in my house

    Well anytime of the day or night
    When you call me I'll be there
    Just call me up on the phone
    When you need someone around to care
    And when you feel sad and blue
    You just come and see me anytime
    I'll be waitin' for you dear
    And your fears you can leave behind
    So when you need a little peace of mind
    Come on over boy, anytime
    I'll keep you happy and so satisfied
    In my house, in my house
    So when you need some love and tenderness
    And it's me baby that you miss
    Here's the key to unlock the door to my house (to my house)
    In my house
    In my house
    In my house.
