    I love you
    But I gotta stay true
    My morals got me on my knees
    I'm begging please stop playing games

    I don't know what this is
    But you've got me good
    Just like you knew you would
    I don't know what you do
    But you do it well
    I'm under your spell

    You got me begging you for mercy
    Why won't you release me
    You got me begging you for mercy
    Why won't you release me
    I said release me

    Now you think that I
    Will be something on the side
    But you got to understand
    That I need a man
    Who can take my hand, yes I do

    I don't know what this is
    But you got me good
    Just like you knew you would
    I don't know what you do
    But you do it well
    I'm under your spell

    You got me begging you for mercy
    Why won't you release me
    You got me begging you for mercy
    Why won't you release me
    I said you'd better release me
    Yeah yeah yeah

    I'm begging you for mercy
    Just why won't you release me?
    I'm begging you for mercy

    You got me begging
