  • The right stuff
    The right stuff

    First time was a great time
    Second time was a blast
    Third time I fell in love
    Now I hope it lasts
    I can see it in your walk
    Tell 'em when you talk
    See it in everything you do
    Even in your thoughts

    You got the right stuff, baby
    Love the way you turn me on
    You got the right stuff, baby
    You're the reason why I sing this song

    All that I needed was you
    Oh girl, you're so right
    And all that I wanted was you
    You made all (my dreams come true)

    Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh
    Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, the right stuff
    Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh
    Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, the right stuff

    Your first kiss was a sweet kiss
    Second kiss had a twist
    Third and your fourth kiss
    I don't want to miss
    I can see it in your walk
    Tell 'em when you talk
    See it in everything you do
    Even in your thoughts

    You got the right stuff, baby
    Love the way you turn me on
    You got the right stuff, baby
    You're the reason why I sing this song

    All that I needed was you
    In my life, you're so right
    And all that I wanted was you
    You made all (every one of my dreams come true)

    Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh
    Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, the right stuff
    Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh
    Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, the right stuff

    Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh
    Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, the right stuff
    Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh
    Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, the right stuff

    Girl, yeah baby, yeah
    You know you got the right stuff
    And girl, yeah, baby
    You know, you know you got it, girl

    In my life, you're so right
    You made all (you know what you did)

    Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh
    Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, the right stuff
    Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh
    Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, the right stuff

    You got the right stuff, baby
    Love the way you turn me on
    You got the right stuff, baby
    You're the reason why I sing this song Writer/s: MAURICE STARR

  • Esskayess from Dallas, TxThis song is fine, but I'll take Bryan Ferry's song of the same name over this one.
  • Megan from Stevenson, AlThis song was playing when I gave blood for blood assurance!!! HA! I was singing along...IT WAS AMAZING! It actually calmed me down. lol Love this song!
  • Andre from The Bronx, NyThe "Right Stuff" song is great, the Kids look great and the dance moves on the video and moreso in person were eye-catching and admirable. Guess what? Two decades later by popular demand the NKOTB are back big time on a successful national tour with the same great songs, great looks and great dance moves. It worked then; it works now! --Dre
