What do I have to do to get you to love me



What do I have to do to get you to love me
Be a star
Play sports or go up far
Do what you say
Or say what  you did
Be nice
Have good looks
Or read good books
Can I cook
Oh, sure
If you'll be with me that my cure
Can I sing
Can I dance
If you'll be mine we'll have a nice romance
Do you want me to cut off a finger or ear
I'll do anything to be so dear
