Let me light your cigarette
And lay your shoes down by the door
Show you all that love you need
Isn't that what you came here for?
Let me just massage your back
Then run my fingers through your hair
Give you all that love you need
and rid your worries while I’m there

Cause I’m a giver
Hey baby, I’m a giver

Let me take away the pain
Those girls before me may have caused
Bring new joy into your life
Cause really you should have it all
Let me just be where you are
I’m pretty sure it’s where I fit
No it ain't a hassle baby
cause for you it’s all worth it

Cause I’m a giver
Hey baby
I’ll be your giver
I’m a giver
I’m a giver
What you need? What you need? What you need?
I’m a giver, I’ll be your giver, I’ve been that giver


Anything, anything you ask
I’d be your giver
Was she your giver?
What you need? What you need?
I’ll be your giver, I am your giver
Anything, anything you’d ask
I’d say yes, I’d say yes, I’d say yes, I say yes!
I’d say yes, yes, yes, yes, yes, yes, yes, yeah yeah yeah
Yeah yeah yeah yeah yeah yeah yeah
Was she your giver?
I am your giver!
What you need?
I will give, I did give!
Was she your giver? Is she your giver?
I am your giver!

Will she take them? Honey will she take them?
Will she take, all of those problems baby?
Would she take them, honey would she take them?
Would she take all of your problems baby?

Because I did, I did, I did, give you what you needed baby
What you needed baby
I did, I did, I did, I gave you all you needed baby
