Oh think (think)
Think about what you're tryin' to do to me.
Woo-hoo think (think)
Let your mind go let yourself be free.

Song lyrics[edit]

  • Speak your name
    And I'll feel a thrill.
    You said I do,
    And I said I will.

    I tell you that I'll stay true,
    And give you just a little time.
    Wait on me baby,
    I want you to be all mine.
    I just get so blue.

    Since you've been gone, baby
    (why'd you do it? why'd you have to do it?)

  • People walkin' around everyday,
    Playin' games and takin' scores.
    Tryin' to make other people lose their minds.
    Well be careful you don't lose yours.

    Oh think (think)
    Think about what you're tryin' to do to me.
    Woo-hoo think (think)
    Let your mind go let yourself be free.

    You need me (need me)
    And I need you (don't cha know)
    Without each other
    There ain't nothin' we two can do.

  • I want to be what he wants when he wants it, and whenever he needs it
    And when he's lonesome and feelin' love starved
    I'll be there to feed it
    I'm givin' him a little bit for each day
    He turns me right on when I hear him say

    (Hey baby let's get away, let's go somewhere far)
    (Baby can we?)
    Well I don't care.

  • Step n' move your hips
    With a feelin' from side to side
    Sit yourself down in your car
    And take a ride.

    And while you're movin'
    Rock steady
    Rock steady baby.
    Let's call this song exactly what it is
    (What it is -what it is - what it is)

  • You walked in on the sly
    Scopin' for love
    In the crowd, I caught your eye
    You can't hide your stuff.

    You came to catch
    You thought I'd be naive and tame
    You met your match
    I beat you at your own game.
