Mother You, Smother You
(Brian HollandLamont DozierEdward Holland, Jr.R. Dean Taylor)



I wanna mother you, smother you

with a love you've never known

I wanna talk to you,

say sweet things to you

Let you know that I'm yours alone

Now, you need a lot of loving,

and my darlin', you need it now

You've been alone for so long

You've forgotten what love is all about

Let me rock you in the cradle of my arms,

let my love protect you from all harm

I'll be your shelter when you want me to

I'll be your comfort when you need me to



I wanna mother you, smother you

with a love that's gentle and true

I wanna talk to you,

say sweet things to you

and my love will see you through

Put your head on my shoulder

Put your hand, darling, in mine

Just let me take you in my arms,

and love away the loneliness you hide

And when life sometimes gets you down,

and you need to cry

Oh, I'll be standing by your side

To be your strength and be your guide



I wanna mother you, smother you

Show me what love is about

I wanna talk to you,

say sweet things to you

Take away all of your doubt



Just let me mother you, smother you

with a love you've never known

I wanna talk to you,

say sweet things to you

Let me know that I'm yours alone



Ooh, mother you, smother you

with a love you've never known

I wanna talk to you,

say sweet things to you

Let me know that I'm yours alone



Mother you,

smother you
