Lyrics

NO WORRIES

Written By: Ned Rifken

NO WORRIES EVER SINCE I STARTED LOVING YOU
NO WORRIES CAN'T BELIEVE THAT I'M NOT FEELING BLUE
JUST SO ALL UNKNOWN GOT A GIRL OF MY OWN
NEVER KNEW I COULD BE FOUND UNTIL YOU
NO WORRIES NOW MY WORLD IS HAPPY AS CAN BE
NO WORRIES I JUST SMILE AT EVERYONE I SEE
BABY THIS IS IT I'M ADDICTED TO YOUR KISS
EVER ON IT'S GONNA BE YOU AND ME
LOVE THE WAY YOU TALK
LOVE THE WAY YOU WALK
GIRL YOU'RE FITTIN ME LIKE A TEE
IF YOUR SO INCLINED SPEND A LITTLE TIME
ON THE COUCH TURN OFF THE TV
WHEN THE NIGHT IS DONE SAY GOOD MORNING TO THE SUN GET UP ABOUT A QUARTER TO 3
