Now, when I ask you for roses,
And you know I like pretty roses,
Go out and bring me some red roses,
Or leave me alone!

Now, when I ask you for huggin',
And you know I like plenty huggin',
Get busy, brother, and hug me!
Or leave me alone.

Now, the moon and stars 'way up above
Said, "I love you, I love you!"
There's only one thing in this wide world
That I want you to do, oh, baby!

When I ask you for money,
And you know I gotta have plenty money,
Go out and fetch me some money,
Mmm, baby, or leave me alone!
