  • Do you want to ride?

    Baby, let me tell you
    I've been watching you
    See you dancing in my dreams
    Feel you heartbeat inside of me
    So if you feel it coming on
    Catch me getting in the mood
    Boy, I'll give you anything
    Cruising's all you have to do

    Do you want to ride in my Mercedes boy?
    Tell me what you're gonna do with me
    'Cause if you want to ride in my Mercedes boy
    There are so many things that I'm gonna do to you

    Baby,let me tell you
    I've been wanting you
    Always on the scene good looks and more possessing all of me
    So when it starts to coming on
    Catch me getting in the mood

    Oh Baby....

    Boy, I'll give you anything
    Cruising's all you have to do

    Do you want to ride in my Mercedes boy?
    Tell me what you're gonna do with me
    'Cause if you want to ride in my Mercedes boy
    There are so many things that I'm gonna do to you

    Do you want to ride in my Mercedes boy?
    Tell me what you're gonna do with me
    'Cause if you want to ride in my mercedes boy
    If I could reach the stars, I'd pull one down for you
    Shine it on my heart, so you could see the truth
    That this love I have inside, is everything it seems
    But for now I find, it's only in my dreams

    Do you want to ride ?

    Do you want to ride in my Mercedes boy?
    Tell me what you're gonna do with me
    'Cause if you want to ride in my Mercedes boy
    There are so many things that I'm gonna do to you

    Do you want to ride in my Mercedes boy?
    Tell me what you're gonna do with me
    'Cause if you want to ride in my Mercedes boy
    There are so many things that I'm gonna do to you Writer/s: PERRI ARNETTE REID
