  • Here we are folks
    The dream we all dream of
    Boy versus girl in the World Series of love
    Tell me, have you got the look?

    You walked in, I woke up
    I've never seen a pretty girl
    Look so tough, baby
    You got that look

    Color you peach and black
    Color me takin' aback
    Crucial, I think I want ya

    You've got the look (You've got the hook)
    You sho'nuf do be cookin' in my book
    Your face is jammin'
    Your body's heck-a-slammin'
    If love is good
    Let's get to rammin'

    You got the look
    You got the look

    Look here
    You got the look (you got the look)
    You must'a took (you must'a took)
    A whole hour just to make up your face, baby
    Closin' time, ugly lights, everybody's inspected (Everybody's inspected)
    But you are a natural beauty unaffected (Unaffected)
    Did I say an hour?
    My face is red, I stand corrected (I stand corrected)

    You've got the look
    You've got the hook
    You sho'nuf do be cookin' in my book
    Your face is jammin'
    Your body's heck-a-slammin'
    If love is good
    Let's get to rammin'

    You got the look
    You got the look
    (There's no girl to do)
    Well here we are, ladies and gentlemen, the dream we all dream of
    (Oh, please!) Boy versus girl in the World Series of love slammin'

    You walked in (I walked in)
    I woke up (you woke up)
    I never seen such a pretty girl look so tough
    (I never seen such a pretty girl look so tough)

    Baby (Baby)
    You got that look (you got that look)
    Yes you do (Yes you do)
    Color you peach and black
    Color me takin' aback, baby
    Crucial, I think I want ya

    You've got the look
    You've got the hook
    You sho'nuf do be cookin' in my book
    Your face is jammin'
    Your body's heck-a-slammin'
    If your love is good
    Let's get to rammin' (Now)

    You got the look
    You got the look

    Here we are folks
    The dream we all dream of

    You got the look
    You got the look
    You got the look
    You got the look
    You got the look
