Lyrics


Wild thing, you make my heart sing

You make everything groovy, wild thing

Wild thing, I think I love you

But I wanna know for sure

Come on and hold me tight

I love you


Wild thing, you make my heart sing

You make everything groovy, wild thing

Wild thing, I think you move me

But I wanna know for sure

Come on and hold me tight

You move me


Wild thing, you make my heart sing

You make everything groovy, wild thing

Wild thing, you make my heart sing
