  • The Mi-the Mi-the Midas touch-touch-touch-touch

    Touch, touch
    Touch, touch
    Touch, touch
    Touch, touch

    You say you're going through changes
    Every day it seems your life is up and down
    And you say that you're lookin' for an answer
    Everywhere you look it seems you can't be found

    Like searchin', tryin' to find the rainbow
    No one's ever found it, yet it's told to be
    But if you're lookin' for a lover
    Everything you need, you can find right here with me

    I've got the Midas touch
    Everything I touch turns to gold, oh, sugar
    I've got the Midas touch
    Baby, let me touch your body and your soul

    Now you've been trapped by love
    Someone takes your heart and then says goodbye
    So you say that you'll never love another
    Tired of playin' games and that's the reason why

    But now whenever we're together
    There's a certain feelin' there, we both agree
    And it's time that you've opened up to love
    'Cause if you don't ever try, then baby, you may never see

    I've got the Midas touch
    Everything I touch turns to gold, yeah, darlin'
    I've got the Midas touch
    Baby, let me touch your body and your soul, whoa

    Together you and I were meant to be
    I'll be right beside you whenever you need me
    This love we have will never fade away
    You can count on me 'cause I'm here to stay

    I've got the Midas touch
    Everything I touch turns to gold, yeah, darlin'
    I've got the Midas touch
    Baby, let me touch your body and your soul
    (Won't you do that for me)

    I've got the Midas touch
    Everything I touch turns to gold, oh, sugar
    I've got the Midas touch
    Baby, let me touch your body and your soul, whoa

    Touch, touch
    Touch, touch
    Touch, touch

    The Midas touch-touch-touch-touch

    Touch, touch
    Touch, touch
    Touch, touch

    Touch, touch
    Touch, touch
    Touch, touch

    Oh, oh, oh, oh

    Together you and I were meant to be
    I'll be right beside you whenever you need me
    This love we have will never fade away
    You can count on me 'cause I'm here to stay

    I've got the Midas touch
    Everything I touch turns to gold, it's all in my hands
    I've got the Midas touch
    Baby, let me touch your body and your soul
    (Won't you let me touch you, baby)

    I've got the Midas touch
    Everything I touch turns to gold, yeah, baby
    I've got the Midas touch
    Baby, let me touch your body and your soul
    (Everything I touch)

    I've got the Midas touch
    Everything I touch turns to gold, yeah, darlin'
    I've got the Midas touch
    Baby, let me touch your body and your soul
    (Won't you let me touch you, baby) Writer/s: Boaz Watson, June Kerenhappuch Williams
