  • You

    She's tried on everything
    Every little thing inside her closet
    And she knows it's getting late
    Knows that I been waiting and I'm starving
    'Cause we been working overtime
    She wants to make a night that we'll remember
    And I'm staring at the time
    Thinking it's alright, put on whatever

    But I've been on my best behaviour
    Pacing back and forth
    And ten thousand lifetimes later
    When she walks through the door

    I said hey you with the red dress on
    I gotta find a way to take it off
    I got a lot of love and it's growing strong
    When I see you with your red dress on
    You in that red dress
    You in that red dress

    Yeah, it's hard to concentrate
    Finish up your plate, she whispers to me
    But I got one thing on my mind
    As they pour the wine and it consumes me

    But I've been on my best behaviour
    Not to 'cause a scene
    But when we finally get home later
    It's just you and me

    And I said hey you with the red dress on
    I gotta find a way to take it off
    I got a lot of love and it's growing strong
    When I see you with your red dress on
    Hey you with the red dress on
    I gotta find a way to take it off
    I got a lot of love and it's growing strong
    When I see you with your red dress on
    You in that red dress
    You

    Hey you with the red dress on
    I said hey you with the red dress on

    Hey you with the red dress on
    I gotta find a way to take it off
    I got a lot of love and it's growing strong
    When I see you with your red dress on
    You in that red dress
    You with that red dress on
    You with that red dress on Writer/s: ADAM MESSINGER, ALEX TANAS, BEN SPIVAK, HAYLEY PENNER, MARK PELLIZZER, NASRI ATWEH
