Listen, baby, ain’t no mountain high

Just call my name, I’ll be there in a hurry
You don’t have to worry
‘Cause baby, there ain’t no mountain high enough
Ain’t no valley low enough, ain’t no river wide enough
To keep me from getting to you, baby

I told you, you could always count on me, girl
And from that day on I made a vow
I’ll be there when you want me some way, some how

Oh I’m just about to lose my mind
Honey, honey yeah

Ah, baby, let’s get it on
Let’s love, baby
Let’s get it on, sugar

Understand me, sugar (ooh ooh)
Since we’ve got to be here
Let’s live
