“Love You To” {Harrison}

Each day just goes so fast
I turn around, it’s past
You don’t get time to hang a sign on me
Love me while you can Or I’ll get a plan
A lifetime is so short
A new one can’t be bought
But what you’ve got means such a lot to me
Make love all day long
Make love singing songs
Make love all day long
Make love singing songs
There’s people standing round
Who screw you in the ground
They’ll fill you in with all the things you see
I’ll make love to you If you want me to
