I don't want you to be no slave
I don't want you to work all day
I don't want 'cause I'm sad and blue
I just want to make love to you, baby

Love to you, baby
Love to you, baby
Love to you
 

I don't want you to cook my bread
I don't want you to make my bed
I don't want your money too
I just want to make love to you, baby

Love to you, baby
Love to you, baby
Love to you


'Cause I can tell by the way that you stitch and walk
See by the way that you baby talk
Know by the way that you treat your man
I could love you, baby, 'til a crying shame

I don't want you to wash my clothes
I don't want you to keep my home
I don't want 'cause I'm sad and blue
I just want to make love to you, baby

Love to you, baby
Love to you, baby
Love to you - yeah!


I don't want you to wash my clothes
I don't want you to keep my home
I don't want 'cause I'm sad and blue
I just want to make love to you, baby

Love to you, baby
Love to you, baby
Sweet love to you, baby

Love to you, baby
I just want to make love to you, baby
Love to you, baby
Love to you, baby
Love to you - I just
I just want to make love to you, baby
I just want to make...
