They say we're young and we don't know
We won't find out until we're grown
Well I don't know if all that's true
'Cause you got me, and baby I got you


Babe, I got you babe
I got you babe

They say our love won't pay the rent
Before it's earned, our money's all been spent
I guess that's so, we don't have a pot
But at least I'm sure of all the things we got


I got flowers in the spring
I got you to wear my ring
And when I'm sad, you're a clown
And if I get scared, you're always around

So let them say your hair's too long
'Cause I don't care, with you I can't go wrong
Then put your little hand in mine
There ain't no hill or mountain we can't climb


I got you to hold my hand
I got you to understand
I got you to walk with me
I got you to talk with me
I got you to kiss goodnight
I got you to hold me tight
I got you, I won't let go
I got you to love me so
I got you babe

I got you babe
I got you babe
(repeat to fade)

    General CommentWhy the hell has this song not got any comments prior to mine?! It's a classic!!!

    I love everything about it - the lyrics are adorable, and the music is all jangly and 60's-like (that's technical terminoligy you don't see every day ladies and gentleman!)

    Watching them perform it as a duet is even cuter - Cher ruffles Sonny's hair as she sings the line "Let them say your hair's too long..."

    I guess you have to have seen it...

    General CommentThere probably aren't many comments cause people are looking for this song under "Sonny & Cher" and not just "Cher".
