Diana

I'm so young, and you're so old
This my darling I've been told
I don't care just what they say
'Cause forever I will pray

You and I will we will be as free
As the birds up in the trees
Oh, please, stay by me, Diana

Thrills I get when you hold me close
Oh my darling, you're the most
I love you, but do you love me?
Oh Diana, can't you see?

I love you with all my heart
And I hope we will never part
Oh please, stay by me, Diana

Oh my darling, oh my lover
Tell me that there is no other
I love you, with my heart
Uh ho, uh ho, oh don't you know
I love you, love you so

And only you can take my heart
Only you can tear it apart
When you hold me in your loving arms
I can feel you giving all your charms

Hold me, darling, hold me tight
Squeeze me baby with all your might
Oh please, stay by me, Diana
Oh please, Diana
