I Just Want to Make Love to You Lyrics

[Verse 1: Etta James]
I don't want you to be no slave
I don't want you to work all day
But I want you to be true
And I just wanna make love to you

[Chorus: Etta James]
Love to you
Oh
Love to you

[Verse 2: Etta James]
All I want to do is wash your clothes
I don't want to keep you indoors
There is nothing for you to do
But keep me making love to you

[Chorus: Etta James]
Love to you
Oh
Love to you

[Bridge: Etta James]
And I can tell by the way you walk that walk
And I can hear by the way you talk that talk
And I can know by the way you treat your girl
That I could give you all the loving in the whole wide world

[Verse 3: Etta James]
All I want you to do is bake your bread
Just to make sure that you're well fed
I don't want you sad and blue
And I just wanna make love to you

[Chorus: Etta James]
Love to you
Oh
Love to you
Oh

[Bridge: Etta James]
And I can tell by the way you walk that walk
And I can hear by the way you talk that talk
And I can know by the way you treat your girl
That I could give you all the loving in the whole wide world

[Verse 4: Etta James]
Oh, all I wanna do, all I wanna do is cook your bread
Just to make sure that you're well fed
I don't want you sad and blue
And I just wanna make love to you

[Outro: Etta James]
Love to you
Oh
Yeah, love to you
Oh
Love to you
