You said you love me
I said I love you
Why won't you stop your cryin'? (cryin', cryin')
Dry your weeping eyes
You know that I love - I love - I love - I love you so,
Da-da-dam da-da-damsel

Here I am, me said,
Come rub it 'pon me belly
Wid you guava jelly,
Da-da-dam da-da-damsel

(Here I stand) Wo now!
(Come rub it 'pon me belly) Wo, now!
(Wid you guava jelly) Wo, now!

I really, really - I really love you
Yes, I really, really love you, child
I say you should stop, stop your cryin'
Wipe - wipe your weeping eyes
Tell you how I'm gonna love
Love you from the bottom of my heart
(Damsel) Oh, damsel!

(Here I am) Wo, damsel!
(Come rub it 'pon me belly) Wo, damsel!
(Wid you guava jelly),
Da-da-dam da-da-damsel

(Here I stand) I can't explain,
(Come rub it) Though the fact still remain ('pon me belly)
I need your love (wid you guava jelly) so much
Come-a, come-a, come-a, damsel, oh darlin'

(Here I stand) Oh, damsel, baby
Me say (come rub it 'pon me) - me say (belly)
Me say (wid you guava jelly)

    General CommentI've felt like that before, like telling a certain person " Why don't you stop crying, you know I love you" Only the broken hearted fools would get it.

    General CommentIt clearly clearly has a "sexual" meaning. Bob definatly loved sex, but i dont think theres anything wrond with that :) you could tell he loved it from songs like turn your lights down low, do it twice, bend down low, and many more

    General CommentBob was famous for sleeping with tons of woman. Sounds like his wife was upset about it and he's telling her there is nothing to be upset about. "I love you and you love me, now let's get it on!" I'm guessing the jelly is her natural lube.
