Hello Sugar, how many do you take in your coffee?
‘Cos I just made some and I was hopin’ you could stay for some
and help get this loneliness off me
Hello Baby, can you save me
From my tummy-teasin’ record of unfulfilling relations?
Hello Mama, do you wanna
Get to know me more than a little better
‘Cos I’ve been hiding for too long in poems and songs
It’s time I changed things up. I don’t care if I’m right or I’m wrong
Hello Baby, do you care to sate me?
You could such real things, the stuff that makes hearts sing
Hello Honey, you’re beautiful and funny
Some people make me nervous but you, yes you put me at ease … at ease
Maybe I’m sayin’ too much
As a matter of fact I probably am
But you’re a ray of sunshine
And you, you make me feel good again
Hello Baby, can you save me?
Hello Mama, do you wanna … get to know me … more than a little better?
I’ll be waiting in the sand
