I don't know why I love you like I do
After all these changes that you put me through
You stole my money and my cigarettes
And I haven't seen hide nor hair of you yet

I wanna know
Won't you tell me (won't you tell me)
I'd love to stay (take me, take me)

Take me to the river (take me to the river)
And wash me down (wash me down)
Won't you cleanse my soul (ooh my soul)
Get my feet on the ground (on the ground, yeah)

I don't know why you treated me so bad (oo-ooh)
After all these things that we could have had (oo-ooh)
Love is a notion that I won't forget (oo-ooh)
My sweet sixteen, now I never regret

I wanna know
Won't you tell me (won't you tell me)
I'd love to stay (take me, take me)

Take me to the river (take me to the river)
And wash me down (wash me down)
Won't you cleanse my soul (ooh my soul)
Try to get my feet on the ground (on the ground, yeah)

Hold me (hold me)
Love me (love me)
Squeeze me (squeeze me)
Tease me 'til I can't, 'til I can't take it baby

Take me to the river (take me to the river)
Wash me down (wash me down)
Won't you cleanse my soul (ooh my soul)
Got to get my feet on the ground (on the ground yeah)

Oh Yeah, Come On, Yeah

I don't know why I love you like I do (ooh yeah)
After all these changes that you put me through (ooh yeah)
You stole my money and my cigarettes (ooh yeah)
And I haven't seen hide nor hair of you yet

I wanna know
Won't you tell me (won't you tell me)
I'd love to stay, oh yeah (take me, take me)


I said I said I said
Take me to the river (take me to the river)
Wash me down (wash me down)
Won't you cleanse my soul (ooh my soul)
Get my feet on the ground (on the ground, yeah)

Hey yeah (yeah yeah yeah yeah)
Hey yeah yeah (yeah)

Dip me in the water (take me, take me, take me to the river)
Dip me in the water, baby (take me, take me, take me to the river)
Dip me in the water (take me, take me, take me to the river)
Dip me in the water yeah yeah yeah yeah yeah (take me, take me to the river)
Dip me
I said dip me
I said dip me in the water yeah yeah yeah
