Dm                  A#7/A7
    If I gave you my love,
Dm                      A#7/A7
    I tell you what I'd do
    Dm    G      C7    B7 Bb7 A7           Dm G Am
    I'd expect a whole lotta love out of you... Ohh

Dm                       A#7/A7
    You gotta be good to me
Dm                       A#7/A7
    I'm gonna be good to you
    Dm        G          C7 B7 Bb7 A7            Dm G  Am
    There's a whole lotta things you and I could do... Ohh

Same once during heys, yeahs and babys

                       Dm      G  Am
What about the way you love me
                   Dm      G  C7 B7 Bb7 A7
And the way you squeeze me... Ohh
              Dm     G  Am
Hey simply beautiful... Heyy!
