THE MONKEES lyrics - Love's What I Want

THE MONKEES
"Love's What I Want"

Love's what I want
What I want for us all
Yes, sir, it's all we have to give
Love's what I want
What I want for us all
Yes, ma'am, it's the only way to live

I know it's a dark old world
When we can't get along
I just have this one idea
And put it in my song

There's crazy folks out there who will take your dreams away
For some strange reason or another
Perhaps they never had that someone saying "I love you"
Perhaps they weren't cuddled by their mother

Love's what I want
What I want for us all
Yes, sir, it's all we have to give
Love's what I want
What I want for us all
Yes, ma'am, it's the only way to live

I know it's a dark old globe
With sorrow black as pitch
I bet we could make it black
If we could find the switch

There's crazy folks out there who will take your dreams away
And think it's all about the money
Perhaps they never had that someone special in their life
That someone who would call them honey

Love's what I want
What I want for us all
Yes, sir, it's all we have to give
Love's what I want
What I want for us all
Yes, ma'am, it's the only way to live

Love's what I want
What I want for us all
Love's what I want
What I want for us all
Love's what I want
What I want for us all
Yes, ma'am, it's the only way to live (Love's what I want, what I want for us all)
Love's what I want
What I want for us all
Yes, ma'am, it's the only way to live (Love's what I want, what I want for us all)

Why don't you be like me?
Why don't you stop and see?
Why don't you hate who I hate
Kill who I kill to be free?

Why don't you be like me?
Why don't you stop and see?
Love is all we need
Love's all we need
