Mona, I need you
Mona, ooo-ooo, Mona
Tell ya Mona, what I wanna do
Get-a my house a-next door to you
Can I see you sometime?
A-we could go kissin' through the blind
Can you come out in the front do'?
Listen to my heart go bumpbity-bump
I'll lead you baby, that's no lie
Without your love I will surely die
Hey! Whoa-oh, whoa-ooh, Mona
Can you come out on the front?
Listen to my heart go bumpity-bump
Hey little baby, that's no lie
Without your love I will surely die.
(Guitar to end)
