Love Is Like An Itching In My Heart
Holland/Dozier/Holland
The love bug done bit me
Didn't mean for him to get me
Woo, get up in the morning
And I'm filled with desire
No no, I can't stop the fire
Love is a real live wire
Ooh, it's a burning sensation
Far beyond imagination

Love is like an itching in my heart
Tearing it all apart
Just an itching in my heart
And, baby, I can't scratch it

Keeps me sighin'
Ooh (keeps me cryin')
Keeps me yearnin'
No, Mama can't help me
No, Daddy can't help me

I've been bit by the love bug
And I need some information
To help me out this situation
Now, when you're ill, you take a pill
When you're thirsty, drink your fill

Whatcha gonna do
Oh, yeah, when love gets a hold,
A hold on you?
Love is like an itching in my heart
And, baby, I can't scratch it

INSTRUMENTAL BRIDGE

Love is a nagging irritation
Causing my heart complication
Love is a growing infection
And I don't know the correction
Got me rockin' and a-reelin'
And I can't shake the feelin'

Love is like an itching in my heart
Tearing it all apart
Just an itching in my heart
And, baby, I can't scratch it

Keeps me sighin'
Ooh (keeps me cryin')
Keeps me yearnin'
Keeps me burnin'
Keeps me tossin'
Keeps me turnin'
Keeps me yearnin'
(Keeps me burnin')

I've been bit by the love bug
And I need some information
To help me out this situation
Love is a nagging irritation
Causing my heart complication
I've been bit by the love bug
(fade out)
