Lyrics of Billy Idol Songs

 

TO BE A LOVER

words and music by: William Bell/Booker T. Jones, 1969

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

 

Have I told you

Lately that I love you

If I din't, darlin',

You see, I'm so sorry

Didn't I reach out

And hold you

In these lovin' arms

Well, if I didn't, oh baby.

Well, I'm so sorry

 

When I realized that you need love too,

Gonna spend my life makin' love to you.

Got to be a lover.

Have mercy.

Forgot to be a lover, babe. (Have mercy)

Forgot to be a lover. (Have mercy)

Forgot to be a lover.

Make it on through to you somehow. (Have mercy, baby)

Got to be a lover, babe. (Forgot to be a lover)

Woo! Woo!

 

Well, did I ask you,

Yes, would you come and share,

Oh, share,

Oh, the burden and the task

That's at love's command

Didn't I say

All those lovin' special things

That you long to hear

To show how much I care

 

Well, when I realize

That you need love too,

Gonna spend my life

Makin' love to you

Forgot to be a lover,

Have mercy

 

Well, well I worked all day

Hard as I can

Worked all night, didn't make me a man.

(Forgot to be a lover)

Have mercy, Oo,

 

When I realized

That you need love too,

Gonna spend my life

Makin' love to you. (Forgot to be a lover)

Got to be a lover, babe.

Oo, mercy. (Have mercy)

Have mercy, baby. (Have mercy, baby)

 

I'm gonna make it on through

To you somehow,

So have mercy. (Have mercy, have mercy, baby)

 

Have I told you,

Yes, lately that I love you

If I didn't, oh baby,

Yes, I'm so sorry.

Ah, but you know I really love you, baby.(Love you baby)

I really love you baby (Love you baby)

I really need you baby (Need you baby)

I really want you baby (Want you baby)

 

When I realized,

That you need love too,

I'm gonna spend my life

Makin' love,

Makin' love,

Makin' love to you

Well, I worked all day

As hard as I can,

Worked all night,

It didn't make me a man, babe.

(Forgot to be a lover) (Have mercy)

Oo, have mercy baby (Have mercy)

Have mercy baby (Have mercy)

Oo, have mercy baby (Have mercy baby)

Oo, make it through.

 

Well, when I realized that you need love too,

I'm gonna spend my life,

Gotta spend my life makin' love to you.
