Jump to: Overall Meaning ↴  Line by Line Meaning ↴

How sweet it is to be loved by you
How sweet it is to be loved by you

I needed the shelter of someone's arms and there you were
I needed someone to understand my ups and downs and there you were
With sweet love and devotion
Deeply touching my emotion
I want to stop and thank you baby
I wanna stop and thank you baby, yes I do

How sweet it is to be loved by you, feels so fine
How sweet it is to be loved by you

I close my eyes at night
Wondering where would I be without you in my life
Everything I did was just a bore
Everywhere I went it seems I'd been there before
But you brighten up for me all of my days
With a love so sweet in so many ways
I wanna stop and thank you baby
I just wanna stop and thank you baby, oh yes

How sweet it is to be loved by you, it's just like sugar sometimes
How sweet it is to be loved by you, oh yeah

You were better to me than I was to myself
For me, there's you and there ain't nobody else
I wanna stop and thank you baby
I just wanna stop and thank you baby, oh yes

How sweet it is to be loved by you
How sweet it is to be loved by you
Oh now, how sweet it is to be loved by you
It's like jelly baby, oh
How sweet it is to be loved by you




Just like honey to the bee, baby, yeah, now
How sweet it is to be loved by you
