  • Well you know just what you do to me
    The way you move soft and slippery
    Cut the night just like a razor
    Rarely talk and that's the danger

    It's the one thing
    You are my thing

    You know your voice is a love song
    It's a cat call from the past
    There's no ice in your lovers walk
    You don't look twice 'cause you move so fast

    It's the one thing
    You are my thing

    You've got a dozen men behind you
    You've got dead flowers on the floor
    You're too pretty in the daylight
    It keeps them coming back for more

    It's the one thing
    You are my thing

    It's the one thing
    You are my thing

    It's the one thing
