I've got you where no one can ever find you,
No one can take you from me;
You and I, we will never be apart,
You're safely locked up in my heart.

Hmm, no matter where you are today,
Even though it's miles away,
There's nothin' in this world can ever keep us apart,
You're safely locked up in my heart.

Now, for years,
My life had been vacant,
And I was alone, forsaken,
But the day that I saw you and was thrilled,
'Twas then I knew my life had been filled.

Now that I've got you under lock and key,
No one can take you from me!
And there's nothin' in this world can ever keep us apart,
You're safely locked up in my heart.

Now that I've got you under lock and key,
No one can take you from me!
And there's nothin' in this world can ever keep us apart,
You're safely locked up in my heart.
