Hey baby, what's in your eyes?
I saw them flashing like airplane lights

You fill my cup, baby, that's for sure
I must come back for a little more

You got my heart, you got my soul
You got the silver, you got the gold
You got the diamonds from the mine
Well that's all right, it'll buy some time

Tell me, honey, what will I do
When I'm hungry and thirsty too?
I'm feeling foolish, that's for sure
Just waiting here at your kitchen door

Hey baby, what's in your eyes?
Is that the diamonds from the mine?
What's that laughing in your smile?
I don't care, no, I don't care

Oh baby, you got my soul
You got the silver, you got the gold
You've got your love, just leave me blind
I don't care, no, that's no big surprise
