  • Do be do be do be do be
    Everybody say to you all the time
    (Do be true)
    Everyone no one but no one can find
    (Do be love)
    A human need that is never failed
    But baby I don’t care
    Just do be there, and do be down

    It's hard to know, just what is love and what you like
    I give you me, you give me you and that’s alright
    Guess what I’m trying to say
    In this gradual way of the love we’ve found
    Since you finally unwound
    Just do be you, and do be down

    I just wanna know, no matter where we go
    Girl let’s not distrust what we adore
    Strangers it may sound
    Let’s keep this love around
    You for me, me for you
    That’s all I wanna do
    Do be do
    But everybody say to you all the time
    To be true,
    Everyone no one but no one can find
    (Do be love)
    A human need that is never found
    But baby I don’t care
    Just do be there, and do be down
    Well baby I don’t care please be there
    And do be down
    Well baby I don’t care do be there
    And do be down
    Well baby I don’t care do be there
    And do be down
