Lyrics:
 

I've got something to tell you that I think you ought to know
That my eyes are on you baby since a long time ago
And now I finally got the nerve and I'm gonna make my move
Now don't you try to turn me off 'cause it's gonna be hard to do

1. I've got a thing about you baby ain't nothing I can do
I've got a thing about you baby, a thing about lovin' you

 

Ain't no two ways about it baby your love was meant for me
I know that I can't do without it, it fits me to a tee
Ooh there's something about you baby can't get you off my mind
I know that I can't live without you I think about you all the time

 

1. (repeat)

Ain't it just like a woman when she knows she's got a man
She'll wring you out and turn you 'bout in the palm of her hand
And then she starts to thinkin' then maybe she's put you in a blind
She'll give you just a little lovin' it will get you every time

 

1. 1. (repeat)
