Lionel Richie - Penny Lover Lyrics

The first time I saw you
Oh, you looked so fine
And I had a feeling
One day you'd be mine
Honey you came along and captured my heart
Now my love is somewhere lost in your kiss
When I'm all alone it's you that I miss
Girl a love like yours is hard to resist
Oh, oh, ooh, ooh, oh

Penny lover, my love's on fire
Penny lover, you're my one desire
Tell me baby could this be true
That I could need someone, like I need you

Nights warm and tender
Lying next to you
Girl I surrender
Oh, what more can I do
I've spent all of my life in search of your love
Now there's one more thing I'd like to say
Don't you ever take your sweet love away
Girl I'll do anything, just please stay
Oh, oh

I don't understand it, oh what's come over me
But I'm not gonna worry, no not anymore
'cause when a man's in love, he's only got one story
That's why my love is somewhere lost in your kiss
When I'm lost and alone it's you that I miss
With a love like yours, it's hard to resist
Ooh, ooh, oh

[begin fade]
Penny lover, don't you walk on by (don't you walk on by)
Penny lover, don't you make me cry (don't you make me cry baby)
Penny lover, don't you walk on by (don't you walk on by)
Penny lover, don't you make me cry (oh penny baby)
Penny lover, don't you walk on by (don't you walk on by)
I remember the first time I saw you baby
Penny lover, don't you make me cry
You had the look in your eye, you had the look in your eye, yeah, yeah
Ooh pretty baby
I just wanted to reachout and touch you baby
I just want to reach out and hold ya, I want to reach out and say ooh, ooh
Don't make me cry
I wanna talk about you everyday (penny lover)
Need you, need you baby ...

  54. Simple Marìa

    la primera vez que te ví
    lucías tan bien
    y tuve el presentimiento
    de que un día ibas a ser mía

    caramelito viniste y atrapaste mi corazón
    ahora mi amor esta perdido sin tus besos
    cuando estoy completamente solo es a tí a quien extraño
    nena un amor como el tuyo es muy difícil de resistir
    oh oh oh oh oh oh


    penny amor, no vayas por ahí
    penny amada, eres el deseo de mi corazón
    dime nena podría ser esto cierto ahora
    ahora que necesito a alguien
    como te necesito a tí

    noches tiernas y calurosas
    yaciéndo junto a tí
    nena, me rindo
    qué mas puedo hacer

    gasté toda mi vida
    en busca de tu amor
    una cosa más te quiero decir
    no te alejes de mí
    nena hare lo que sea, por favor quédate
    oh oh oh oh oh


    no puedo entender
    lo que me estÀ pasando
    y ya no me preocuparÈ
    no,ya no mÀs..

    porque un hombre enamorado solo tiene una historia
    y es que mi amor se perdió en tus besos
    cuando estoy solo y perdido, es a ti a quien extraño
    nena un amor como el tuyo es dificil de resistir

  55. Edinho Dias

    Quando eu ouço essa música Penny Love , eu viajo no tempo , em 1987 saindo daqui do Rio de janeiro em direção a são Paulo i quando chego lá acompanhado do amor da minha vida pegamos a estrada Raposo Tavares , até chegar na casa da mulher da minha vida , " M.M " eu sinto a sua falta.😑

  56. NO bs

    Back when it was okay to feel sweet, tender and expressive.

    Valerie Burkhardt

  69. E Stew

    I’m ashamed to say that I discover this song in 2019 and only cuz on Pandora I typed in ‘80’s soft rock’. This song played and here I am. In shock that I ever missed this song.

    Aglaya Majorem

    Wow, wished that I have that experience of the magic of ever hearing the song the first time all over again.

  81. Manu Ginobilis Bald Spot

    Can't Slow Down was just one of four studio albums that slowed the Thriller juggernaut in 1983, along with Synchronicity by The Police (a classic), Business As Usual by Men At Work (a classic), and Metal Health by Quiet Riot for one week (okay, two out of three ain't bad). In this era, you couldn't just put out janky had to be GREAT to be received greatly. That's why people look back so reverently at 80's music. Yeah, there was obviously some filler, but the highs were so much higher than the stuff you see now. It's not even close. Production values, songwriting, etc...we're never getting the art of music back on the pop level.

  82. John Smith

    Pure class

    Luisa Vazquez

    For sure... and pure love
