Ooh, Ooh, Ooh, Ooh Baby

( Colin Hay )

I saw you at the bar offered you a drink
I was feeling nervous couldn’t even think
Said I’d like to see you if you had a mind
Soon I would be leaving so we didn’t have much time

Ooh, Ooh, Ooh Ooh maybe
Ooh, Ooh, Ooh Ooh baby

You flew in to see me
I was dressed just right
I had changed three times that day
I couldn’t sleep at night
Then I saw you and I remembered
I caught you with my eye
You got close and sniffed me
And oh so softly sighed

You said
Ooh, Ooh, Ooh Ooh baby
Ooh, Ooh, Ooh Ooh baby
Ooh, Ooh, Ooh Ooh baby
Ooh, Ooh, Ooh Ooh baby

Now you’re standing in the kitchen
With next to nothing on
I think you’re trying to tease me
But you know I could be wrong
I walked up behind you
Put my stubble on your neck
You turned around and bit me
And oh so softly said

You said hold me close and don’t let go
Though I’ll be gone tomorrow
In time we’ll know
With no more fear and distance gone
We’ll kill the sorrow and we’ll follow
Where our love is born
We’re as innocent as love baby
