  • Who in this party's off the hook?
    I had to take a closer look
    Would it be possible, honey
    To have a little talk with you?
    Oh, baby

    I'll be your shelter when your homeless
    Be your light in the dark
    This ain't no line, honey
    If that's what's going through your mind
    Ah, baby

    I just what to be your 24-7 man, now
    (24-7, 24-7, 24-7 man)
    Just as strong as I can
    I just what to be, I want to be
    Your 24-7 man, girl
    Ain't no shame in my game, girl

    Some men may cheat, some men may lie
    Without ever batting an eye
    But I'm not that kind of guy, honey
    You're pressin' heavy on my mind, oh baby

    You need some lovin' come to me
    You need some company come to me
    You need some squeezin' come to me
    You need a little kissin' come to me

    I just what to be your 24-7 man, girl
    (24-7, 24-7, 24-7 man)
    Just as long as I can
    I just what to be, I want to be
    Your 24-7 man, girl
    Ain't no shame in my game, girl

    You need a little money come to me
    You need a little honey come to me
    You positively look delicious, baby
    You're really rockin' up my mind, aw baby

    I want to rock with you, baby
    I want to roll with you, honey
    I want to squeeze you, baby
    Till you drop all of my money

    24-7, hey now girl
    24-7, hey now
    I want to rock with you, babe
    All night long, yeah
    I want to squeeze you, baby
    All night long, yeah
    I want to run my fingers all up and down you, yeah
    Hey now, yeah
    Hey
    24-7 man, yeah

If counterpoint and polyrhythms are your thing, you might love these guys. Even by Progressive Rock standards, they were one of the most intricate bands of the '70s. Then their lead singer gave us Bon Jovi.
