  • She dances in these sheets at nights
    She dances to his needs
    She dances 'til he feels just right
    Until he falls asleep
    She dances at the crack of dawn
    And quickly cooks his food
    She can't be late, can't take too long
    The kids must get to school

    She's a slave to the rhythm
    She's a slave to the rhythm of
    She's a slave to the rhythm
    A slave to the rhythm of
    The rhythm of love, the rhythm of love

    She's a slave to the rhythm
    She's a slave to the rhythm of
    She's a slave to the rhythm
    A slave to the rhythm of
    The rhythm of love, the rhythm of love

    She dances for the man at work
    Who works her overtime
    She can't be rude as she says
    "Sir, I must be home tonight"
    She dances to the kitchen stove
    Dinner is served by nine
    He says his food's an hour late
    She must be outta her mind

    She's a slave to the rhythm
    She's a slave to the rhythm of
    She's a slave to the rhythm
    A slave to the rhythm of
    The rhythm of love, the rhythm of love

    She's a slave to the rhythm
    She's a slave to the rhythm of
    She's a slave to the rhythm
    A slave to the rhythm of
    The rhythm of love, the rhythm of love

    She works so hard, just to make her way
    For a man who just don't appreciate
    And though he takes her love in vain
    Still she could not stop, couldn't break his chains
    She danced the night that they fell out
    She swore she'd dance no more
    But then she did, he did not quit as she ran out the door

    She danced through the night in fear of her life
    She danced to a beat of her own
    She let out a cry and swallowed her pride
    She knew she was needed back home, home

    She's a slave to the rhythm
    She's a slave to the rhythm of
    She's a slave to the rhythm
    A slave to the rhythm of
    The rhythm of love, the rhythm of love

    She's a slave to the rhythm
    She's a slave to the rhythm of
    She's a slave to the rhythm
    A slave to the rhythm of
    The rhythm of love, the rhythm of love Writer/s: ANTONIO REID, DARYL SIMMONS, KENNETH BABYFACE EDMONDS, ROBERSON KEVIN
