Put Your Head on my Shoulder

Put your head on my shoulder
Hold me in your arms, baby
Squeeze me oh so tight
Show me that you love me too

Put your lips next to mine dear
Won't you kiss me once, baby?
Just a kiss goodnight, maybe
You and I will fall in love

People say that love's a game
A game you just can't win
If there is a way, I'll find it some someday
And then, this fool will rush in

CHORUS: Put your head on my shoulder
Whisper in my ear, baby
Say the words I want to hear, tell me
Tell me that you love me too

CHORUS: Put your head on my shoulder
Whisper in my ear, baby
Words I want to hear, maybe
Put your head on my shoulder
