"C'mon and Love Me" is a 1975 single by the American rock band Kiss. It was originally featured on the group's third album Dressed to Kill.

Background[edit]

Written by Paul Stanley in under an hour, a live version of the track exists on Alive!. Stanley was inspired by the Moody Blues song "Question" when composing the tune.[1]

The lyrics are a playful narrative portraying a Don Juan who takes the unique tack of offering himself up to his romantic prey: "Baby, baby don't you hesitate/'Cause I just can't wait/Lady, won't you take me down to my knees/You can do what you please/C'mon and Love Me."

"C'mon and Love Me" became a favorite in concert and a regular part of Kiss' 1970s performances. It has retained a cult following among the ensemble's fans and was later covered by Skid Row (this rendition can be found on B-Side Ourselves).
