Oh, honey

Oh, honey

Why is it that ya act so funny

When we should be making love

Oh, I'm willing

I'm so willing

But nothing that ya do seems thrilling

I long for your petting

Where am I getting

There's the moon

Way up high

Here are you

And here am I

Oh, do

Do do something

I ain't been hugged

And ain't been kissed

And I wanna see just what I missed


Oh, do

Oh, do something

I got the time and the place and the place and the time I know

I gotta bench and a park

And a park and a bench and all

Ya, know other pairs their making haste

But look at me I'm just born to waste

So, Oooooh do

Oooooh, do something

Summer nights stars galore

Oh, tell me what are we waiting for


Awww, c'mon honey

Awww, c'mon

Do something


Ya, know

It's been told and explained

Nothing tried is nothing gained


Oh, do...

Do something

I gotta hug and a kiss and a kiss and a hug or two

I wanna give some away

And I'm gonna give some away

To you


Sitting around seems so dumb

And look at me I'm getting numb


Oh, do

Oh, do something

* Instrumental

All alone

Just we two

And I feel so


Ooooh, do

Do do
