The lyrics to “Personality” by Lloyd Price are as follows:

“Over and over
I tried to prove my love to you
Over and over
What more can I do

Over and over
My friend says I’m a fool
But over and over
I’ll be a fool for you

‘Cause you got personality
Walk, with personality
Talk, with personality
Smile, with personality
Charm, with personality
Love, with personality

And plus you’ve got
A great big heart

So over and over
Well, I’ll be a fool for you
Now over and over
What more can I do?

‘Cause you got personality
Walk, with personality
Talk, with personality
Smile, with personality
Charm, with personality
Love, with personality

And plus  you’ve got
A great big heart

So over and over
Well, I’ll be a fool for you
Now over and over
What more can I do?

Over and over
I said that I love you
Over and over, honey
Now it’s the truth

Over and over
They still say I’m a fool
But over and over
I’ll be a fool for you

‘Cause you got personality
Walk, with personality
Talk, with personality
Smile, with personality
Charm, with personality
Love, with personality

And plus you’ve got
A great big heart

So over and over
Well, I’ll be a fool for you
Now over and over
What more can I do?”
