“Cupid” by Sam Cooke Lyrics

Cupid draw back your bow
And let your arrow go
Straight to my lover’s heart for me, for me

Cupid please hear my cry
And let your arrow fly
Straight to my lover’s heart for me

Now I don’t mean to bother you but I’m in distress
There’s danger of me losing all of my happiness
For I love a girl who doesn’t know I exist
And this you can fix, so

Cupid draw back your bow
And let your arrow go
Straight to my lover’s heart for me
Nobody but me

Cupid please hear my cry
And let your arrow fly
Straight to my lover’s heart for me

Now, Cupid if your arrow make a love storm for me
I promise I will love her until eternity
I know between the two of us her heart we can steal
Help me if you will, so

Cupid draw back your bow
And let your arrow go
Straight to my lover’s heart for me
Nobody but me

Cupid please hear my cry
And let your arrow fly
Straight to my lover’s heart for me

Now, Cupid, don’t you hear me
Calling you? I need ya
Cupid help me, I need ya
