Lyrics

Ev'rybody needs attention,
Ev'rybody wants to smile,
Ev'rybody needs a mention,
Attention, attention, for a while.

Come on, baby, give it all you've got,
Get into the power of the plot.
You know we'll only get it if we try,
Give me your attention for a while.

Feel it, feel it when you tell me,
You've got time to give me,
Time can run away.

See it, see it in the children,
People of tomorrow,
Living for today.

Your love is fine,
Your love can be mine.

Come on, baby, give it all you've got,
Get into the power of the plot.
You know we'll only get it if we try,
Give it your attention for a while.

Ev'rybody needs attention, (ev'rybody needs attention)
Ev'rybody wants to smile, (ev'rybody wants to smile)
Ev'rybody needs a mention, (ev'rybody needs a mention)
Attention, (attention)
Attention, (attention)
For a while.

Give me your attention for a while.
