"Take Me to the River" as written by Al L. Green and Mabon Hodges....
I dont know why I love you like I do
After all these changes that you put me through
You stole my money and my cigarettes
And I havent seen hide nor hair of you yet

I wanna know wont you tell me, am I in love to stay?
(Take me, take me)
Take me to the river and wash me down
Wont you cleanse my soul get my feet on the ground
I dont know why you treated me so bad
Look at all these things that we could have had
Love is a notion that I wont forget
my sweet sixteen now I never regret
I wanna....

Bridge:
Hold me love me squeeze me tease me till I die till I de
Repeat verse one, then chorus, then
Yeah, yeah yeah yeah yeah
Dip me in the water
Dip me in the water baby
