Lyrics

Something in the way she moves
Attracts me like no other lover
Something in the way she woos me
I don’t wanna leave her now
You know I believe in how

Somewhere in her smile she knows
That I don’t need another lover
Something in her style that shows me
I don’t wanna leave her now
You know I believe in how

You’re askin’ me will my love grow
I don’t know, I don’t know
You stick around now, it may show
I don’t know, I don’t know

Something in the way she woos me

Something in the way she knows
And all I have to do is think of her
Something in the things she shows me
I don’t wanna leave her now
You know I believe in how
