Jump to: Overall Meaning ↴  Line by Line Meaning ↴

Well I got the love
And I'm gonna give it
I got the love
And you're gonna get it
I got the love girl and with it
Lay down your arms to mine and surrender

I got the love
I got the love
Yes I got the love
And I wanna shout it
I got the love
The rain has gone

I got the love
I'm about to bear one heavenly burden
Lay down your arms to mine and surrender

I got the love
I got the love

Oh I got the love
I got the love
I got the love
I got the love
And it don't stop, I'm gonna pop

I got the love
And I'm on a winner
I got the love
The rain has gone
I got the love
C'mon sugar, don't make me wait
No later than Monday
I got the love

Oh I got the love
Oh I got the love
Oh I got the love

And if it don't, stop I'm gonna pop

I got the love
And I'm on a winner

C'mon sugar, don't make me wait
No later than Monday
I'm about to bear one heavenly burden
Lay down your arms to mine and surrender
