I WANNA BE LOVED
Dinah Washington


I wanna be loved with inspiration

I wanna be loved starting tonight

Instead of merely holding conversation

Hold me tight


I wanna be kissed until I tingle

I wanna be kissed starting tonight

Embrace until our heartbeats intermingle

Wrong or right


I feel like acting my age

I'm past the stage of merely turtledoving

(be careful, be careful what you do)

I'm in no mood to resist

And I insist the world owes me a loving


I wanna be thrilled to desperation

I wanna be thrilled starting tonight

(love me, love me, love me)

With every kind of wonderful sensation

I wanna be loved


I feel like acting my age

I'm past the stage of merely turtledoving

I'm in no mood to resist

And I insist the world owes me a loving


I wanna be thrilled to desperation

I wanna be thrilled starting tonight

With every kind of wonderful sensation

I wanna be loved
