LyricsEdit

I got chills, they're multiplyin'
and I'm losin' control
'cause the power you're supplyin'
it's electrifyin'

You better shape up
'cause I need a man (I need a man)
and my heart is set on you
you better shape up
you better understand (better understand)
that to my heart I must be true
(nothing left) nothing left for me to do

You're the one that I want
(you are the one that I want, do do do)
honey you're the one I want
(you are the one that I want, do do do)
honey you're the one that I want
(you are the one that I want, do do do)
the one I need, oh yes indeed, yeah

If your filled with affection
and you're too shy to convey
meditate in my direction
feel your way, "That's pretty gay"

I better shape up 'cause you need a man
I need a man who could keep me satisfied
I better shape up if I'm gonna prove
you better prove that my faith is justified
are you sure
yes I'm sure down deep inside

'Cause you're the one that I want
(you are the one that I want, do do do)
honey you're the one that I want
(you are the one that I want, do do do)
honey you're the one that I want
(you are the one that I want, do do do)
the one I need, oh yes indeed
you're the one that I want

The one I need, oh yes indeed, yeah
