Sex Shooter

I need you to get me off
I'm your bomb, baby, ready to explode
I need you to get me off
Be your slave, do anything I'm told

I'm a sex shooter
Shootin' love in your direction
I'm a sex shooter
Come and play with my affection

I need you to pull my trigger, baby
I can't do it alone
I need you to be my main thing
Plaything, pillar of stone

I'm a sex shooter
Shootin' love in your direction
I'm a sex shooter
Come and play with my affection
Come on, kiss the gun

Whoa, whoa
Whoa, whoa
Whoa, whoa
Whoa, whoa

Sex shooter
Shootin' love in your direction
Oh, I'm a sex shooter
Come and play with my affection

No girl's body can compete with mine
No girl's rap can top my lines
No girl's kiss can ring your chimes
Come on boy, let's make some time

I'm a sex shooter
Shootin' love in your direction, oh yeah
I'm a sex shooter
Come and play with my affection

Sex shooter
Shootin' love in your direction
(I can't hear you!)
Sex shooter
Come and play with my affection
All the nasty people sing it yeah

Manic Monday

Six o'clock already
I was just in the middle of a dream
I was kissin' Valentino
By a crystal blue Italian stream
But I can't be late
'Cause then I guess I just won't get paid
These are the days
When you wish your bed was already made

It's just another manic Monday (oh)
I wish it was Sunday (oh)
'Cause that's my fun day (oh)
My "I don't have to run" day
It's just another manic Monday

Have to catch an early train
Got to be to work by nine
And if I had an airplane
I still couldn't make it on time
'Cause it takes me so long just to figure out
What I'm gonna wear
Blame it on the train
But the boss is already there

It's just another manic Monday (oh)
I wish it was Sunday (oh)
'Cause that's my fun day (oh)
My "I don't have to run" day
It's just another manic Monday

All of my nights
Why did my lover have to pick last night
To get down?
(Last night we got down)
Doesn't it matter
That I have to feed the both of us
Employment's down (oh)
When she tells me in her bedroom voice
"C'mon honey, let's go make some noise" (I can't resist)
Time it goes so fast
(When you're having fun)

It's just another manic Monday (oh)
I wish it was Sunday (oh)
'Cause that's my fun day (oh)
It's just another manic Monday

Noon Rendezvous

I've been wondering what to wear
I love our noon rendezvous
I know you tell me you missed me
And I want to make love to you

Your words, they intoxicate me
I shiver each time that you speak
How much more can I endure, my love?
The sound of your voice makes me weak

If my bodily functions operate
This way when you just call my name
I'd hate to see when we are finally
Playing that nasty love game

Your words, they intoxicate me
I shiver each time that you speak
How much more can I endure, my love?
The sound of your voice makes me weak

The words are all over your face, my love
What shall you or shall not do?
You could show me some new tricks, my love
I'd love to be taught by you

I've been wondering what to wear
I love our noon rendezvous

100 MPH

One, two, three, yeah

There's a fairy tale that says
Once upon a time
Funky music belonged to people who
Drank cheap wine

That's why I gotta get on my own way
That's the new golden rule
Enjoy the closest human
I'm much too hot to be cool
100 miles an hour, baby
That's what it's all about
I need a lover that can slow me down
Somebody that'll make me shout

There's a misconception that says
Everything on the one (everything on the one)
Then my first reaction is just try to
Have a little fun

That's why I gotta get on my own way
That's the new golden rule
Enjoy the closest human
I'm much too hot to be cool
100 miles an hour, baby
That's what it's all about
I need a lover that can slow me down
Somebody that'll make me shout

Ugh, ha, ha, ha, ha

There's a fairy tale that says
Twice in the Land of Oz (twice in the Land of Oz)
Dorothy make love to the Lion because
Because, because

That's why I gotta get on my own way
That's the new golden rule
Enjoy the closest human
I'm much too hot to be cool
100 miles an hour, baby
That's what it's all about
I need a lover that can slow me down
Somebody that'll make me shout, make me shout
That'll make me shout
Woman who'll make me shout

You're My Love

You want to know if I care for you
When you ought to know by now
How can you stand there just pretending
When you know how I feel

Oh baby, you're my love
And I love everything you do to me
You're my love
And I love when you're around
You're my love
And I'll never let you down

You wanna know what I see in you
Well I can't really say for sure
All I know is I need you
More than I've ever needed
Anyone else before

Oh baby, my love
I love do, do, do to me
You're my love
I love when you're around
Yeah, you're my love
I love when you're around

Seasons changing faster than they did
When we were young
It's funny but we didn't seem to care
The only thing we cared about
Was keeping our love strong
And as long as you're there
I'll always care

You're my love
I love what you do to me
You're my love
I love when you're around, oh baby
Honey, I love oh yeah
Stop your pretending
You know how I feel, yeah
I love you babe, love you babe, love you babe
Love you, love you, love you, yeah, yeah, yeah

I love you
I love you
I love you
I love you
I love you
I, I, I love you
You're my love
You're my love

Baby, You're A Trip

Doo doo, do doo
Doo doo, do doo

I know what people say
They say you don't know how to love
But I want you anyway
You're like a drug and I can't get enough
You'd be great in motion pictures
'Cause baby, you really got me blind
You're the only one I wanna see
You're the only one that does it to me every time

Baby, you're an ocean that's too wide to cross
And baby, you're the cross that's too deep to bear
Baby, you're the star that's too far away
Baby, you're a trip and a half, but I don't care

I know what people think
They think I'm a star struck little fool
Baby, you could be flat broke
I'd still be crazy for you
And I know that I'm in love
'Cause I'd change my whole life just to make you smile
And I still can't have you when I want
But when I do it's only for a little while

'Cause baby, you're an ocean that's too wide to cross
Baby, you're the cross that's too deep to bear, yeah
Baby, you're the star that's too far away, oh yeah
Baby, you're a trip and a half, but I don't care

You say, it's in my diet
Something in the water don't compute
Ooh baby, I'm quite happy after you give me love
You can see who's the fool

You're, you're an ocean to wide to cross (baby, you're an ocean that's to wide to cross)
(Baby, you're the cross that's to deep to bear) cross too deep to bear, yes you are
You are the star that's to far away, baby baby (baby, you're the star that's to far away)
(Baby, you're a trip, I don't care)
You're a trip and a half, I don't care

(Baby, you're an ocean that's to wide to cross)
(Baby, you're the cross that's too deep to bear) you
(Baby, you're the star that's too far away) baby, you
(Baby, you're a trip - care) trip and half, trip and a half
(Baby, you're a trip) yeah, no, yeah
(Baby, you're a trip) you're a trip and a half
(Baby, you're a trip) oh I don't, I don't, I don't care baby
(Baby, you're a trip) yeah a trip and a half

I'd do anything you want me to do, baby
I'd change my life for you, you (baby, you're a trip)
You are the star who's much to far away (baby, you're a trip)
I don't care girl 'cause I, I, I, I love you, love you, baby, oh yes (baby, you're a trip)
Yeah, yeah, yeah (baby, you're a trip)
You're a trip and a half, a half (baby, you're a trip)
You're a trip and a half (baby, you're a trip)

I, I know those people say (baby, you're a trip)
They say you don't know how to love
But I want you anyway, baby, you're like a drug
I can't get enough 'cause you
You'd be great in motion pictures, girl
'Cause you really got me blind
You'd be the only one I wanna see
Only one that done it every time
I'd do the do with you

You're like an ocean much to wide to cross
You are the cross that's much to deep to bear
You are the star much to far away
But I don't care, you're a trip and a half
I want you every day, hey!

The Glamorous Life

Don't you get me?

She wears a long fur coat of mink
Even in the summer time
Everybody knows from the coy little wink
The girl's got a lot on her mind
She's got
Big thoughts
Big dreams
And a big brown Mercedes sedan
What I think this girl
She really wants is to be in love with a man

She wants to lead the glamorous life
She don't need a man's touch
She wants to lead the glamorous life
Without love it ain't much

She saw him standing in the section marked
"If you have to ask you can't afford it" lingerie, lingerie
She threw him bread
And said make me scream
In the dark what could he say
Boys with small talk and small minds
Really don't impress me in bed
She said I need a man's man baby
Diamonds and furs
Love would only conquer my head

She wants to lead the glamorous life
She don't need a man's touch
She wants to lead the glamorous life
Without love it ain't much

They made haste in the brown sedan
They drove to 55 Secret Street
They made love and by the seventh wave
She knew she had a problem
She thought real love is real scary
Money only pays the rent
Love is forever that's all your life
Love is heaven sent
It's glamorous

Lead the glamorous life
She don't need a man's touch
She wants to lead the glamorous life
Without love it ain't much

She wants to lead the glamorous life
She don't need a man's touch
She wants to lead the glamorous life
Without love it ain't much, it ain't much
She wants to lead the glamorous life
She don't need a man's touch
She wants to lead the glamorous life
Without love it ain't much, it ain't much

Gigolos Get Lonely Too

I guess you've heard of my reputation
I've had my share of foolin' around
But everybody needs stimulation
And mine just happens to be all over town
It's an easy-money occupation, a first-class psychiatry
But just once, I'd wanna make love without taking off my clothes
Just once, I wanna make love with somebody who really and truly knows

Contrary to rumor, gigolos get lonely too
All my lovers need stimulation
But honey babe, I think that I need you

Maybe you're the kind of person
That could turn my world around
Won't you gimme little inspiration?
Maybe that's what I need to make me settle down
It's an easy-money occupation, but honey one thing understand
I've got more money than you could imagine in your wildest dreams
But honey, money don't make no happy man

'Cause contrary to rumor, gigolos get lonely too, yes they do
All my lovers need stimulation
But honey babe, I think that I need you

Da, da da da da, da da da, doo doo
Da, da da da da, da da da, doo doo

Just once, I wanna love without takin' off my clothes
Just once, I wanna love with somebody who knows
That I got more money than you could ever see
But honey, money won't get me up off my knees

Gigolos get lonely too, yeah
All my lovers need stimulation
But honey babe, I think that I need you

Contrary to rumor, gigolos get lonely too
All my women need stimulation, yeah
Honey babe (honey babe)

Do, baby?

Love... Thy Will Be Done

Love thy will be done
I can no longer hide, I can no longer run
No longer can I resist Your guiding light
That gives me the power to keep up the fight

Oh Lord, Love thy will be done
Since I have found you, my life has just begun
And I see all of Your creations as one perfect complex
No one less beautiful or more special than the next
We are all blessed and so wise to accept
Thy will, Love, be done

Love thy will be mine
And make me strive for the glorious and divine
I could not be more, more satisfied (satisfied)
Even when there's no peace outside my window, there's peace inside
And that why I no longer run (I no longer run)
Love thy will be done

Love thy will be done
I can no longer hide, I can no longer run
Oh Love thy will be done
Thy will, Love, be done

Oh, no longer can I resist (no)
The guiding light (guiding light)
The light that gives me power to keep up the fight
I couldn't be more satisfied (no)
Even when there's no peace outside my window, there is peace inside
And that's why I can no longer run
Love, thy will be done
Love, thy will be done
Love, thy will be done
Oh!

Love thy will be done
I can no longer hide, I can no longer run
Oh Love thy will be done
Thy will, Love, be done

Oh Love thy will be done
I can no longer hide, I can no longer run
Oh Love thy will be done
Thy will, Love, be done (glory, glory, glory)
Thy will, Love, be done (glory)
Thy will, Love, be done

Dear Michaelangelo

Every summer in the gardens of Florence
A peasant of female persuasion
Used to cry for Michaelangelo
To save her from death's invitation

Some say this woman was crazy
Others say this woman was possessed
But just one look at her face
And it's evident to her he was the best (Oh)

Oh dear Michaelangelo
Color the dreams in my head
I look at your paintings
And I'm with you in your bed

Dear Michaelangelo
Save me from death's invitation
I'll make love to no one unless he's of your persuasion

By summer's end came many offers
All of which the peasant refused
She wanted Michaelangelo
And no other, no other man would do

No one could speak of passion and touch her
Touch her the way that he does
No one except Michaelangelo
It was him
Or a life without love

Dear Michaelangelo
Color the dreams in my head
I look at your paintings
And I'm with you in your bed

Dear Michaelangelo
Save me from death's invitation
I'll make love to no one unless he's of your persuasion

A life without love
A life without love
Don't die
Don't die without love

Dear Michaelangelo

Dear Michaelangelo

Dear Michaelangelo
Color the dreams in my head
I look at your paintings
And I'm with you in your bed

Dear Michaelangelo
Save me from death's invitation
I'll make love to no one unless he's of your persuasion

Dear
Dear
Dear Michaelangelo, angel

Dear Michaelangelo
Color the dreams in my head
I look at your paintings
I'm with you in your bed

Dear Michaelangelo
Save me from death's invitation
I'll make love to no one unless he's of your persuasion

Dear Michaelangelo
Color the dreams in my head
I look at your paintings
And I'm with you in your bed

Dear Michaelangelo
Save me from death's invitation
I'll make love to no one unless he's of your persuasion

Wouldn't You Love to Love Me

Look into my big brown eyes
Tell me what's on your mind
Do you really love me
Or do you just wanna make some time

See, I don't really care
I just want a little company
And I can tell by the look in your eyes
That you really, really want me

Wouldn't you love to love me?
Wouldn't you?
Wouldn't you love to love me baby?
Wouldn't you?
Wouldn't you love to be with me alone?
Wouldn't you love to have me for your very own?

You're really not that hard to get
I only want to make you see
Baby, I'm not ready yet
To give you any part of me
I don't want to tease you
I only wanna turn you on
I know I can please you
'Til your voice is gone
'Til the party's gone

Wouldn't you love to love me?
Wouldn't you?
Wouldn't you love to love me, sugar?
Wouldn't you?
Wouldn't you love to be with me alone?
Wouldn't you love to have me for your very own?

Doo, do, do, do, doo
Doo, do, do, do, doo
Everybody sing it
Doo, do, do, do, doo

Wouldn't you?
Wouldn't you love to love me?
Wouldn't you?
Wouldn't you love to love me baby?
Wouldn't you?
Wouldn't you love to be with me alone?
Wouldn't you love to have me for your very own?

Girl, girl

Don't you wanna be with me alone?
Don't you wanna have me for your very own?

Wouldn't you love to have me for your very own?
I love you
You love me
Oh, baby
Don't you wanna love me?

Nothing Compares 2 U

It's been seven hours and thirteen days
Since you took your love away
(Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh)
I go out every night and sleep all day
Since you took your love away
(Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh)
Since you been gone I can do whatever I want
I can see whomever I choose
(Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh)
I can eat my dinner in a fancy restaurant
But nothing
I said nothing can take away these blues
'Cause nothing compares
No, nothing compares to you
Nothing, nothing

It's been so lonely without you here
Like a bird without a song
(Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh)
Nothing can stop these lonely tears from falling
Tell me baby where did I go wrong?
I could put my arms around every girl I see
But they'd only remind me of you
(Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh)
I went to the doctor guess what he told me?
Guess what he told me?
He said boy you better try to have fun
No matter what you do
But he's a fool
'Cause nothing compares
No, nothing compares to you
Nothing, nothing

All the flowers that you planted, mama
In the back yard
All died when you went away
(Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh)
I know that living with me baby was some kind of hard
But I'm willing to give it another try
'Cause nothing compares
No, nothing compares to you

I said nothing compares
No, no, no nothing compares to you
