“You Were Mad for Me” by Sam Cooke Lyrics

A fish was made to swim in the ocean
A boat was made to sail on the sea
As sure as there are stars above
I know, I know you were made for me
You were made for me

A grape was made to grow on a vine
An apple was made to grow on a tree
As sure as there are stars above
I know, I know you were made for me

We’ll have our quarrels and you’ll upset me
But what can I do?
You’ve been mine ever since I met you
And I’ll never leave you
No, I’ll never leave you

As sure as there’s a heaven up above me
From you I know I’ll never be free
As sure as there are stars above
I know, I know you were made for me

A fish was made to swim in the ocean
(A boat was made to sail on the sea)
A boat was made to sail on the sea
As sure as there are stars above
I know, I know you were made for me
(You were made for me)
You were made for me

A grape was made to grow on a vine
(An apple was made to grow on a tree)
An apple, an apple was made to grow on a tree
As sure as there are stars above
I know, I know you were made for me

We’ll have our quarrels, and you’ll upset me
But what can I do? (Baby, what I can do?)
You’ve been mine ever since I met you
And I’ll never, never, never, never, never
Never leave you

As sure as there’s a heaven up above me
From you I know I’ll never be free, no, no
As sure as there are stars above
I know, I know you were made for me
