Peter Jones For a first release as a group leader, this is a great listen. OK, some of it may sound a little derivative but it's almost the nature of the genre and - of course - at times it's intentional. Enjoy it for what it is - good fun funk.

Love, love, love why'd you take so long to come to me, aw baby And love, love yo' love tell me where you hiding from me All the time Each time I try to find someone to take your place It was all in vain, no their lips were never quite the same, no baby When I was kissing someone new deep inside I was missing you Aw baby, you make me fall in love with you Now I don't know just what I'm gonna do Aw honey, I looked out into empty space and all I saw was your Sweet face Love, love, love you can't imagine what you did to me, aw baby And love, your love every time you smile it goes Through me all the time Day by day I'm falling more in love with you And that's no lie, cross my heart and honey I hope to die 'Cause I'm not trying to mislead ya believe me girl I really need you Aw baby, you make me fall in love with you Now I don't know just what I'm gonna do Aw honey, I looked out into empty space and all I saw was Your sweet face Aw baby, you make me fall in love with you Now I don't know just what I'm gonna do Aw honey, I looked out into empty space and all I saw was Your sweet face Love, love, love Love, love
