  • I'm just a love machine
    And I won't work for nobody but you (yeah baby)
    I'm just a love machine
    A huggin', kissin' fiend

    I think it's high time you knew
    Whenever I think of you
    My mind blows a fuse (baby)
    When I look in you eyes
    My meter starts to rise, I become so confused
    My voltage regulator cools
    When I'm sitting next to you
    Electricity starts to flow
    And my indicator starts to glow, wooh

    I-I I'm just a love machine
    And I won't work for nobody but you baby
    I'm just a love machine (yeah baby)
    A huggin', kissin' fiend

    I-I I'm just a love machine
    And I won't work for nobody but you
    I'm just a love machine (yeah baby)
    A huggin', kissin' fiend

    I'm gentle as a lamb,
    I'm not that hard to program,
    There's no way that you can lose
    My chassis fits like a glove
    I've got a button for love
    That she's got to use
    If you look into my files
    I am sure you can find out how
    To turn me on just set my dial
    And let me love you for a little while, wooh

    I-I I'm just a love machine
    And I won't work for nobody (but you baby)
    I'm just a love machine (yeah baby)
    A huggin', kissin' fiend

    I'm just a love machine
    And I won't work for nobody but you(baby)
    I'm just a love machine (yeah baby)
    A huggin', kissin' fiend

    I'm just a love machine
    I won't operate for nobody but you
    I'm just a love machine (yeah baby)

  • Seventhmist from 7th HeavenDenny's ran several commercials with this song, showing a dancing rooster as the "love machine."
  • Gregg from San Antonio, TxAlways loved that groove back in the day. My mother was big into disco back then and it opened my eyes to a lot being a pre-teen at the time. Now my teenage son loves this song mostly because of the low voice in the background "ooh ooh yeah!" He gets the goofiest grin when he hears that. Great song.
  • Barry from Sauquoit, NyOn December 20th, 1975 the Miracles performed "Love Machine" on the ABC-TV program 'American Bandstand'...
    Two months earlier on October 25th it entered Billboard's Hot Top 100 chart; and on March 6th, 1976 it peaked at #1 (for 1 week) and spent over a half-year on the Top 100 (28 weeks)...
    It reached #3 in England and #5 on Billboard's Hot Soul Singles chart...
    Lead vocal was by Billy Griffin, who replaced Smokey Robinson in 1972...
    Mr. Griffin will celebrated his 64th birthday come next August 15th.
