  • Ooh, ooh, ooh
    Ooh, ooh, ooh

    Don't let no one
    No one get you down
    'Cause if they do
    If they do I'll be around

    I want you near
    Standing here by my side
    So my dear wipe
    Those tears from your eyes

    Ooh, ooh, ooh
    Ooh, ooh, ooh

    Don't let no one
    No one get you down
    'Cause if they do
    If they do I'll be around

    I want to see
    You round me all the time
    I want you to know that I am yours
    And you are mines

    Let nobody get you down
    (Hey)
    Let nobody get you down
    Let nobody get you down

    Let nobody get you down
    Let nobody get you down
    Let nobody get you down
    (You keep me happy all the time)

    Let nobody get you down
    (You keep me happy, happy all the time)
    Let nobody get you down
    (You, you, you, you, you, you, you, you)
