- 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 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.
