We gotta get out of this place!
If it's the last thing we ever do ...
We gotta get out of this place,
'cause girl, there's a better life ... for me and you

--"We Gotta Get out of This Place" (1965)

"Just a little lovin’ early in the mornin' beats a cup of coffee for startin' out the day."--"Just a Little Lovin' (Early in the Morning)" – Dusty Springfield

Baby, baby, I'd get down on my knees for you
If you would only love me like you used to do, yeah

--"You've Lost That Lovin' Feelin'" (1964)
