1.Sometimes I wonder, baby, why I put up with you,

            E

    you ought to pay attention, I've got better things to do.

                      A

    I could be tearing the Eiffel Tower down to the ground,

                       E

    I could be helping Superman and break the speed of sound,

          B7                                              A

    nobody tells me what to do, and I don't love you 'cause I have to,

       E                                                                                  ~

    I love you 'cause I want to, I love you 'cause I want to.

2. Sometimes I'm feelin' wicked and I want to sneak around,

        E

    sneak up from behind you, baby, while you're out on the town.

                  A

    Now if you don't take me with you, I might catch you in the act,

      E

    you can't run and hide and keep your alibis intact.

           B7                                             A

    Nobody tells me what to do, and I don't love you 'cause I have to,

       E

    I love you 'cause I want to, I love you 'cause I want to.

 

       A                                                                E

    This just ain't some game we play, so you better straighten up,

    A                                                   - B7

    I ain't doin' this for my health, I'm         doin' it for love, love.

3. Life is an adventure and I just can't get enough,

     E  - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -

    love can be so simple, it don't have to be so tough.

                      A

    I could be anybody's sweetheart, anybody's girl,

                   E

    I could marry me a rich man and sail around the world.

              B7

    But I think I'll stay right here with you,

                   A                                                 ~

    'cause I never do nothing I don't want to.

       E

    I love you 'cause I want to, I love you 'cause I want to !

       E

    I love you 'cause I want to, I love you 'cause I want to !
