I definitely do not recall "ILI" ever being demoed, or even played live until 1982

Lyrics

Note that the lyrics as performed live by Depeche Mode slightly differ to the original lyrics of the song. The lyrics below are transcribed from Depeche Mode's live performances of the song.

I like it, I like it
I like the way you run your fingers through my hair
And I like the way you tickle my chin
And I like the way you let yourself in
When your mama's not there

I like it, I like it
I like the things you say and all the things you do
And I like the way you straighten my tie
And I like the way you're winkin' your eye
And I know I like you, and I know I like you

Do that again
You're driving me insane
Kiss me once more
That's another thing I like you for

I like it, I like it
I like the funny feeling being here with you
And I like it more with every day
And I like it always hearing you say
You're likin' it too, you're likin' it too

Do that again
You're driving me insane
Kiss me once more
That's another thing I like you for

I like it, I like it
I like the funny feeling being here with you
And I like it more with every day
And I like it always hearing you say
You're likin' it too, you're likin' it too

Whoa oh, I like it
Are you likin' it too?
