  • Where did you come from lady
    And ooh won't you take me there
    Right away won't you baby
    Tendoroni you've got to be
    Spark my nature
    Sugar fly with me
    Don't you know now
    Is the perfect time
    We can make it right
    Hit the city lights
    Then tonight ease the lovin' pain
    Let me take you to the max

    I want to love you (P-Y-T)
    Pretty young thing
    You need some lovin' (T-L-C)
    Tender lovin' care
    And I'll take you there
    I want to love you (P-Y-T)
    Pretty young thing
    You need some lovin' (T-L-C)
    Tender lovin' care
    And I'll take you there

    (Anywhere you want to go)

    Nothin' can stop this burnin'
    Desire to be with you
    Gotta get to you baby
    Won't you come, it's emergency
    Cool my fire yearnin'
    Honey, come set me free
    Don't you know now is the perfect time
    We can dim the lights
    Just to make it right
    In the night
    Hit the lovin' spot
    I'll give you all that I've got

    I want to love you (P-Y-T)
    Pretty young thing
    You need some lovin' (T-L-C)
    Tender lovin' care
    And I'll take you there
    I want to love you (P-Y-T)
    Pretty young thing
    You need some lovin' (T-L-C)
    Tender lovin' care
    And I'll take you there

    Pretty young things, repeat after me
    I said,
    Na na na
    Na na na na
    Na na na na
    Na na na
    Na na na
    I said na na na na na
    Na na na na na
    I'll take you there

    I want to love you (P-Y-T)
    Pretty young thing
    You need some lovin' (T-L-C)
    Tender lovin' care
    And I'll take you there
    I want to love you (P-Y-T)
    Pretty young thing
    You need some lovin' (T-L-C)
    Tender lovin' care
    And I'll take you there Writer/s: James Ingram, Quincy Jones

  • Steve from Whittier, CaThis song has a spooky resonance since 1993. After all, that was when he got charged [if he had had a thing for young girls a la Jack McLellan, that is.] Everythime this comes one I'm reminded of a pervert, unlike back in the day..:( [no disrespct..]
  • Kaz from C, OhThis song is to get dressed to ow!
