I Thank You - Sam & Dave/The ZZ Tops/Bonnie Raitt

   
I Thank You
(I want everybody to get up off your seat) 
(And get your arms together, and your hands together) 
(And give me some of that old soul clapping) 

You didn't have to love me, like you did 
But you did, but you did. 
And I thank you. 

You didn't have to squeeze me, like you did 
But you did, but you did. 
And I thank you. 

If you took your love to somewhere else, 
I wouldn't know what it meant to be loved to death 
You made me feel like I've never felt 
Kisses so good I had to holler for help 

You didn't have to squeeze me but you did 
But you did but you did 
And I thank you. 

You didn't have to hold me but you did 
But you did but you did 
And I thank you. 

Every day was something new, 
You pull out your bag and your fine to do 
You got me trying new things too 
Just so I can keep up with you. 

You didn't have to shake me, like you did 
But you did but you did 
And I thank you. 

You didn't have to make it, like you did 
But you did but you did 
And I thank you. 

All my life I've been shortchanged 
Without your love, baby, it's a crying shame 
And now I know what the fellows are talking about 
When they say that they been turned out 

I want to thank you (thank you) 
Thank you (oh, baby) 
Thank you, baby (yeah, yeah) 
Oh, baby (I gotta be thanking) 
Got to say

You didn't have to love me, like you did 
But you did, but you did. 
(And I thank you) 

You didn't have to hold me like you did 
But you did, but you did. 
(And I thank you.) 

Thank you (thank you, baby) 
Baby (Got to thank you) 
Baby (oh, baby) 
Thank, I've got, I've got to (thank you, baby) 
Thank you, baby (oh, baby)
