  • (Ten nine eight seven six five four three two one)

    You set my lips on fire
    You won the key to my heart
    You've got a special way to move me
    Don't stop now let's do it again
    You keep me dancing through the moonlight
    I feel the pleasure in your touch
    And everything you are is heaven
    Oh I can't get enough no I can't get enough

    (Instant replay) I've got to have it
    (Instant replay) ooh woh ooh-ooh
    (Instant replay) got to have your love again

    I feel so good about us
    I found a shining star
    And when I look into your eyes it's magic
    Well I just know this can't be a dream
    I'm so happy must be real
    In every way it's getting stronger
    Now you know it let me show it

    (Instant replay) I've got to have it
    (Instant replay) woo-woo-woo-ooh
    (Instant replay) got me floating on a cloud
    Got me dancing all around all around all around (woo)

    Ooh ooh ooh ooh
    Eeya-eeya eeya eeya-eeya

    Got to have it 'cause I need it

  • Jbt from Atlanta, GaAs much as it might sound like Dan is singing about a girl that he is excited about - it isn't...Dan was a very closeted gay man. And while Dan did die from a brain tumor, it was AIDS that caused the tumor.

    The song is likely about meeting his lover du jour. You will note that not once is there a "she," "her," or any other reference to a woman - or a man for that matter. Incidentally, this song was one of the most popular dance songs in gay bars across the country when it came out. RIP Dan.
