Can't Speak French

  • I wait underneath the covers
    All night beside you
    And who could ever question any crying I do

    My heavy heart is beating out a rhythm
    All night inside me
    And I fall a little harder every time that I do

    Watch me living it up, you totally
    Got me stuck in a rut, you're made for me
    How am I gonna step up and say to you
    I get the feeling boy, I want you, want you

    (Now)
    Conversation is tough because you're totally
    Walking around all the stuff you wanna say to me
    Words are never enough
    Oh, baby, baby, you turn my dust to gold

    I can't speak French
    So I'll let the funky music do the talking talking
    Now oh
    I can't speak French
    So I'll let the funky music do the talking

    Oh, oh, oh
    I can't speak French
    So I'll let the funky music do the talking talking
    Now oh
    I can't speak French
    So I'll let the funky music do the talking

    I gotta let you know
    I wanna give in to my temptation
    And let my feelings show
    I gotta let you know oh, oh, oh

    I gotta let you know
    I wanna give in to my temptation
    And let my feelings show
    I gotta let you know oh, oh, oh

    I can't speak French
    So I'll let the funky music do the talking talking
    Now oh
    I can't speak French so I'll let the funky
    Music do the talking

    Oh, oh, oh
    I can't speak French
    So I'll let the funky music do the talking talking
    Now oh
    I can't speak French
    So I'll let the funky music do the talking
