Do You Wanna Make Love

Album: Pete McCann (1977)
Charted: 5
  • Sometimes the love rhymes that fill the afternoon
    Lose all their meaning with the rising moon
    so hold me and tell me that the words you say are true
    Answer the question I must ask of you

    Do you want to make love
    Or do you just want to fool around
    I guarantee it will bring you down
    If you try and fool yourself
    Do you want to make loe
    Or do you just want to fool around

    You can take it seriously or take it somewhere else
    Tale all the freedom that a lover will allow
    If you feel the feeling that I'm feeling now
    Where love goes a fool knows that the hurt can go as deep
    Don't make a promise that you cannot keep

    Do you want to make love
    Or do you just want to fool around
    I guarantee it will bring you down
    If you try and fool yourself
    Do you want to make love
    Or do you just want to fool around

    You can take it seriously or take it somewhere else
    But if you want to get close to me
    You could do it so easily
    Is it love that I see when I look in your eyes
    Or just another empty lie?
