Duet intro:
Ooh-ooh baby, I love you, yeah
Ooh-ooh baby, I love you

Bo spoken:
Wait a minute!
You know my woman told me, she said
'Bo Diddley, I love you but I"m leavin'
I say, 'What? '
She say, 'I love you but I'm leavin' you'

And I say, 'Baby? '
And she kept sayin, 'Whoa, baby I love you'
What you say, girl?
(Whoa-ooh, baby, I love you)
Wow!
Somethin' wrong here, someplace
(Whoa-oh baby, I love you)

Wait a minute!
She said, 'Here's the key to all'v your locks
Take my name off of yo' mailbox
Here's the key to yo' Cadillac
I got my own parked right out back'

I said, 'What? '
It's somethin' wrong here
And she kept talkin' 'bout, I love you
Fellas, let me tell you somethin'
(Whoa-ooh baby, I love you)
Ha, ha, ha
Wooow, woo, somethin' wrong
(Whoa-oh baby, I love (need) you

Wait a minute!
Let me tell you what else she told me
She said, 'You know one thing, Diddley
I got all my bags packed
In the middle of the dining room flo'
I'm all packed and ready to go'
I said, 'But baby, whoa baby, baby, baby'

And then she told me, she said
'Got my own place with some brand new lock
I'm gonna tell the mailman I got a brand new box'

I said, (whoa-ooh baby, I love you)
Woo, you ain't jivin' are you?
There's somethin' wrong some place
She kept talkin' 'bout
Ooo, baby (I want you)
I love you (I love you)
(I need you)
(I love you) I love you
(I love you).
