Little Stevie Wonder was only 16 years old when he sang this ultimate love song. He wrote the song with his mother Lula Mae Hardaway, a woman named Sylvia Moy (Motown), and the song's producer Henry Cosby. By the way, I'm just finding out that Stevie's mother co-wrote many of his songs when he was still a teen. In fact, the song "Signed, Sealed, Delivered" -- a favorite of my own mother's and father's -- earned her a nomination for the 1970 Grammy Award. Who knew???


But back to Little Stevie. This musical genius was born six weeks premature, but that didn't stop him from using all of his God-given talents. By the time he was 11 years old, he had a record deal with Motown, and by 12 his first album was released.

Motown billed him as "Little" Stevie Wonder, the boy genius, and he certainly was because he easily played most of the instruments on his albums -- including the keyboard, bass, drums and harmonica.

Now here, without further ado, is the extended version of the adorably romantic song by Little Stevie Wonder:


I was born in Lil' Rock,
Had a childhood sweetheart,
We were always hand in hand.

I was hightop shoes and shirt tails,
Suzy was in pig tails,
I know I loved her even then.

You know my papa disapproved it,
My mama boohooed it,
But I told them time and time again,
"Don't you know I was made to love her,
Built a world all around her"
Yah! Hey, hey, hey.

She's been my inspiration,
Showed appreciation
For the love I gave her through the years.

Like a sweet magnolia tree
My love blossmed tenderly,
My life grew sweeter through the years.

I know that my baby loves me,
My baby needs me,
That's why we made it through the years.

I was made to love her,
Worship and adore her,
Hey, hey, hey.

All through thick and thin
Our love just won't end,
'Cause I love my baby, love my baby. Ah!

My baby loves me,
My baby needs me,
And I know I ain't going nowhere.

I was knee high to a chicken
When that love bug bit me,
I had the fever with each passing year.

Oh, even if the mountain tumbles,
If this whole world crumbles,
By her side I'll still be standing there.

'Cause I was made to love her,
I was made to live for her, yeah!

Ah, I was made to love her,
Built my world all around her,
Hey, hey, hey.

Oo baby, I was made to please her,
You know Stevie ain't gonna leave her, no,
Hey, hey, hey.

Oo wee baby, my baby loves me,
My baby needs me,
Hey, hey, hey.

OO my baby loves me....
