Too much competition in this love affair,
I want you exclusively, there's nothing I can spare;
So I say, night and day,
Honey, keep your mind on me.

Let them take you dancing, take you out to dine,
But if they begin romancing, don't forget your mine;
When it's love they speak of,
Honey, keep your mind on me.

If someone offers you more than I do
Don't be misled,
Someday you'll find I can offer you, too,
Baby, use your heart and head!

I'm so mad about you, say we'll never part!
I can't live without you; you're the keeper of my heart,
So if you love me, too,
Honey, keep your mind on me.

I'm so mad about you, say we'll never part!
I can't live without you; you're the keeper of my heart,
So if you love me, too,
Honey, keep your mind, honey, keep your mind on me!
