if you don’t want me, don’t lead me on girl,
But if you need me, show me that you love me
And when I’m feeling’ blue and I want you,
There’s just one thing that you should do,
Just gimme some kind of sign girl My baby
to show me that you’re mine girl, Oh yeah.
Just gimme some kind of sign girl, Oh my darling’,
To show me that you’re mine girl alright
But if you do want me, gimme little sweet talk,
If you don’t want me, don’t lead me on girl,
But if you need me, show me that you love me
And when I’m feeling down wearing a frown
You be there when I look around,
Just gimme some kind of sign girl
My baby, to show me that you’re mine girl
Alright
Just gimme some kind of sign girl – Oh my darling’,
To show me that you’re mine girl alright
Just gimme some kind of sign girl
Ooh, my baby, to show me that…
