  • Ev'ry time I try to prove I love you,
    One, two, three, red light,
    You stop me,.
    Baby you ain't right to stop me.
    One, two, three, red light, you stop me.
    Ev'ry time I make a move to love you,
    One, two, three, red light, you stop me.
    Baby, ev'ry night you stop me.
    One, two, three, red light.
    Stop the game, you've got too much to lose.
    If you stop me again, that's when we might end.
    So don't refuse.
    Ev'ry time I make a move to love you,
    One, two, three, red light, don't stop me.
    Baby you ain't right to stop me,
    One, two, three, red light won't stop me.
    Ev'ry time I try to prove I love you,
    One, two, three, red light won't stop me.
    When I know I'm right don't stop me.
    One, two, three, red light. Writer/s: B. TRIMACHI
