Cupid, draw back your bow
And let your arrow go
G D G D
Straight to my lover's heart for me, for me
Cupid, please hear my cry
And let your arrow fly
G d C7 G
Straight to my lover's heart for me------
Now, I don't mean to bother you, but I'm in distress
There's danger of me losin' all of my happiness
For I love a girl who doesn't know I exist
And this you can fix, so...
Now, Cupid, if your arrow make her love strong for me
I promise I will love her until eternity
I know, between the two of us, her heart we can steal
Help me if you will, so...
Cupid, don't you hear me calling you?
I need you, Cupid
then fade until you can't be heard
