or
The Supremes

I want to mother you, smother you
With a love you've never known
I want to talk to you,
Say sweet things to you

Let you know that I'm yours alone
Now, you need a lot of loving,
And my darlin', you need it now
You've been alone for so long

You've forgotten what love is all about
Let me rock you in the cradle of my arms,
Let my love protect you from all harm

I'll be your shelter when you want me to
I'll be your comfort when you need me to

I want to mother you, smother you
With a love that's gentle and true
I want to talk to you,
Say sweet things to you

And my love will see you through
Put your head on my shoulder
Put your hand, darling, in mine
Just let me take you in my arms,

And love away the loneliness you hide
And when life sometimes gets you down,
And you need to cry
Oh, I'll be standing by your side
To be your strength and be your guide

I want to mother you, smother you
Show me what love is about
I want to talk to you,
Say sweet things to you
Take away all of your doubt

Just let me mother you, smother you
With a love you've never known
I want to talk to you,
Say sweet things to you
Let me know that I'm yours alone

Ooh, mother you, smother you
With a love you've never known
I want to talk to you,
Say sweet things to you
Let me know that I'm yours alone

Mother you,
Smother you
