I'm so glad to be here tonight (yeah), I'm so glad to be home
And I've got a message for every woman and every man here tonight that ever needed somebody to love (damn right)
Someone to love them really bad
Someone to please them all the time (ah yeah)

Someone to push them when they're down
And someone to talk to when they're up

(...) somebody all the time - you can do that

You know, sometimes, you get what you want
But you lose what you had
And everybody here listen to my song tonight
It could save the whole world


Everybody needs somebody
Everybody needs somebody to love
Somebody to love
Somebody to kiss
Sometime to miss

Someone to tease
Someone to please


I need you, you, you

I need you, you, you
I need you, you, you
I need you, you, you

Oh sometimes I feel

Feel a little sad inside
My baby mistreats me
And I kind of get a little, little (...)
 

I need you, you, you
I need you, you, you
I love you

Oh, say yes
Let me hear you say yes...

I need you...


...somebody to love
Somebody to kiss (I need you you you...)
Sometime to miss

Somebody to tease
Sometime to please

Somebody to love, yes
Somebody to love
Ah yeah, somebody to love
Somebody to hold...

Ah yes
I need you, you, you
I need you, you, you
I need you, you, you

I need you, you, you

I need you, you, you

I need you, you, you
