Love o' love o' love o' love
Say love o' love o' love o' love
I had a love so pure so strong
I keep wondering just where my love went wrong
My love went wrong

I say why oh why won't love free me
Why o why won't love free me
Oh untie my hands unchain my feet
And set my poor ol' body free

Why must love keep me a slave oh
Why why must love keep me a slave
I can't help myself I ain't got no friends
It will take me take me straight to my grave
Love will take me straight to my grave
