ALL I WANT IS YOU (Ferry)
Bryan Ferry & Roxy Music
Somebody told me told me just the other day
That you're leaving me, we're through!
Well if you knew how it hurt me so,
Then you'd change your mind I'm sure!
Don't want to hear what's going on,
I don't care what's new!
Don't want to know about anything,
'Cause all I want is you!
Going out with other girls
Was always such a bore,
But since I fell in love with you,
I need you more and more!
Don't want to know about one night stands,
Cut price souvenirs.
All I want is the real thing
And a night that lasts for years!
If you ever change your mind,
I've a certain cure;
An old refrain, it lingers on,
"L'amour, toujour l'amour!"
Don't want to learn about etiquette
From glossy magazines,
Why should I try to talk correct
Like they do in other scenes?
Say no more about imagery,
You're starting to confuse!
Just make an offer of more romance,
Of course I can't refuse!
All I want is you,
Ooh-ooh, I'm all cracked up on you!
