Mine By Daylight

Have you heard 'bout the work little darlin'
We've been workin' hard our way
Makin' three to five on Friday
Spend the weekend gettin' paid
Give us calls, we give new ____?
I gives calls, your mama too
Tonight I wanna call you something
Mind if that's alright with you

All the love you can spend
Let me be your man
Hold on real tight

You'll be mine by daylight
Mine by daylight
Let me love you all night
You'll be mine by daylight
We'll be kissin' in the moonlight
Gonna get it alright
Say let me love you all night
You'll be mine by daylight
Daylight, daylight
Daylight, daylight

Let's go up to twelfth and fourth
And maybe drive a bike (?) to you
Down the road for a cup of coffee
Maybe a little somethin' sweet
Speakin' of that sweet thing baby
Will you be my sweet delight
I can't wait to hear you call me
Your sweet sugar daddy tonight

Babe I have a plan
First we make a stand
If we make love, all night

You'll be mine by daylight
Mine by daylight
Let me love you all night
Mine by daylight
And we're kissin' in the moonlight
I wanna get it alright
Let me love you all night
You'll be mine by daylight
Daylight, daylight
Daylight, daylight

Here's a tip for the baby sitter
Turn the news and shove the shades
I got love that ain't no quitter
Guaranteed and not run away
Put me through the hottest water
Spend all day on the tumble-drier (?)
When I walked your daddies daughter
Down the isle girl this was why

All the love you can stand
Let me be your man
Hold on real tight

You'll be mine by daylight
Mine by daylight
Let me love you all night
You'll be mine by daylight
Oh kissin' in the moonlight
Yes we're gonna get it alright
Let me love you all night
You'll be mine by daylight

You'll be mine by daylight
Mine by daylight
Let me love you all night
You'll be mine by daylight
Kissin' in the moonlight
Yes we're gonna get it alright
Let me love you all night
You'll be mine by daylight
Daylight, daylight
Daylight, daylight
