Letra:

Hey baby, I ain't askin' much of you
No no no no no no no no baby, I ain't askin' much of you
Just a big-a big-a a-big hunk o' love will do
 
Don't be a stingy little mama
You're 'bout to starve me half to death
Well you can spare a kiss or two and
Still have plenty left, oh no no 
Baby, I ain't askin' much of you
Just a big-a big-a a-big hunk o' love will do - that's right
 
You're just a natural born beehive
Filled with honey to the top
But I ain't greedy baby
All I want is all you got, oh no no
Baby, I ain't askin' much of you
Just a big-a big-a hunk o' love will do - that's right
 
I got a wishbone in my pocket
I got a rabbit's foot 'round my wrist
And I'd have every thing my lucky charms could bring
If you'd give me just one sweet kiss, no no no no no no no
Baby, I ain't askin' much of you
Just a big-a hunk-a hunk-a hunk o' love will do - that's right
Just a big-a big-a hunk o' love will do - that's right
