Listen to me baby and I don't mean maybe. Listen to my story, it's terrifficly true. I gotta find a way of telling you that I really go for you. I hope you really believe me baby 'cause I certainly do. 'Cause you're thrillin' me, you're really, really thrilling when you tell me that you probably got a kind of crush on me, That moves me, grooves me. How divine can one woman be?
