"Sweet Thing" as written by Scott Saunders, James R. Robertson, Tim R. Rollinson, Terepai Richmond and Alexander Richard Hewetson....
I will love you anyway
Even if you cannot stay
I think you are the one for me
Here is where you ought to be
I just want to satisfy you
Though you're not mine
I can't deny you
Don't you hear me talking baby?
Love me now or I'll go crazy

Oh sweet thing
Don't you know you're my everything?
Oh sweet thing
Don't you know you're my everything?
Yes, you are

I wish you were my lover
But you act so undercover
To love you child my whole life long
Be it right, or be it wrong
I'm only what you make me, baby
Don't walk away, don't be so shady
Don't want your mind, don't want your money
These words I say, they may sound funny, but

Oh sweet thing
Don't you know you're my everything?
Oh sweet thing
Don't you know you're my everything?
Yes, you are, yes you are

You are my heat
You are my fire
You make me weak with strong desire
To love you child my whole life long
Be it right, or be it wrong

I just want to satisfy you
Though you're not mine
I can't deny you
Don't you hear me talking baby
Love me now or I'll go crazy

You're the heat, you are the fire
You're not mine, I can't deny ya
Don't you hear me talking, baby?
Love me now, or I'll go crazy

You're the heat, you are the fire
You're not mine, I can't deny ya
Don't you hear me talking, baby?
Love me now, or I'll go crazy

You're the heat, you are the fire
You're not mine, I can't deny ya
Don't you hear me talking, baby?
Love me now, or I'll go crazy

You're the heat, you are the fire
You're not mine, I can't deny ya
Don't you hear me talking, baby?
Love me now
