Lyrics

Elle:
I don't know why I love you like I do
After all these changes that you put me through
You stole my money and my cigarettes
And I haven't seen hide nor hair of you yet

I wanna know
Won't you tell me
Am I in love to stay?
(Stay, stay, stay)

Take me to the river (take me to the river)
And wash me down (wash me down)
Won't you cleanse my soul (cleanse my soul)
Put my feet on the ground (put my feet on the ground)

I don't know why she treated me so bad
Look at all those things that we could have had
Love is a notion that I can't forget
My sweet sixteen I will never regret

I wanna know (I wanna know)
Won't you tell me
Am I in love to stay?
(Stay, stay, stay)

Take me to the river (take me to the river)
And wash me down (wash me down)
Won't you cleanse my soul (cleanse my soul)
Put my feet on the ground (put my feet on the ground)

Hold me, love me, please me, tease me
Till I can't, till I can't take no more

I don't know why I love you like I do
After all the things you put me through
The sixteen candles burning on my wall
Turning me into the biggest fool of them all

I wanna know (I wanna know)
Oh won't you tell me
Am I in love to stay?

Take me to the river (take me to the river)
And wash me down (wash me down)
Won't you cleanse my soul (cleanse my soul)
Put my feet on the ground (put my feet on the ground)

Take me to the river (take me to the river)
And wash me down (wash me down)
Won't you cleanse my soul (cleanse my soul)
Put my feet on the ground (put my feet on the ground)

Take me to the river (take me to the river)
(take me to the river, river
take me, take me, take me to the river)
Take me to the river (take me to the river)
(take me to the river, river
take me, take me, take me to the river)
Take me to the river (take me to the river)
(take me to the river, river
take me, take me, take me to the river)
