about

I Want to Be Loved by Johnny Green, Edward Heyman and Billy Rose - arranged by Elaine Dame and Jim Cox

lyrics

I wanna be loved with inspiration
I wanna be loved starting tonight
Instead of merely holding conversation
Hold me tight

I wanna be loved I crave affection
Those kisses of yours I'd gladly share
I want your eyes to shine in my direction
Make me care

I want the kind of romance
That should be strong and equally as tender
I only ask for the chance
To know the meaning of the word, surrender

I wanna be thrilled by only you dear
I wanna be thrilled by your caress
I wanna find each dream of mine come true dear
I wanna be loved

I want to be loved with inspiration
I want to be loved starting tonight
Instead of merely holding conversation
Hold me tight

I want to be kissed until I tingle
I want to be kissed starting tonight
Embrace me till our heart beats intermingle
Wrong or right

I feel like acting my age
I'm past the stage of merely turtle dovin'
I'm in no mood to resist
And I insist the world owes me a lovin'

I wanna be thrilled to desperation
I wanna be thrilled starting tonight
With every kind of wonderful sensation
I wanna be loved, I want to be loved, I want to be loved
