Lyrics

[Verse 1]
When I am lonely and blue
I’m always dreaming of you,
Then I’m missin’ your love and kissin’ and lots of other things too;
Nobody every can be
What you have been dear to me That’s the reason why, now I sigh
This one melody

[Verse 2]
Sweet papa, I’ve tho’t about
Some night that you’re steppin’ out,
I can’t just believe you’d cause me to Greece, still somehow I’m in doubt
Lately when you say good by,
I miss that lingering sigh
If I lose you dear I just fear
I would surely die

[Chorus]
Oh Pete, you’re so nice,
It’s Paradise,
When you are by my side,
That’s when I’m satisfied,
Come on and kiss me, do,
And hug me, tight in my car
There’s nothing sweeter
In my two seater
Peter, Peter,
Peter, Peter,
Call around tonight
See how good you are.
