  • Say baby, say baby, say baby

    What you doin'? (What you doin'?)
    Where you at? (Where you at?)
    Oh, you got plans? (You got plans?)
    Don't say that (shut yo' trap)

    I'm sippin' wine (sip, sip)
    In a robe (drip, drip)
    I look too good (look too good)
    To be alone (woo-hoo)

    My house clean (house clean)
    My pool warm (pool warm)
    Just shaved (smooth like a newborn)

    We should be dancing, romancing, in the east wing
    And the west wing of this mansion, what's happenin'?

    I ain't playin' no games
    Every word that I say
    Is coming straight from the heart
    So if you tryna lay in these arms

    I'ma leave the door open
    (I'ma leave the door open)
    I'ma leave the door open, girl
    (I'ma leave the door open, hopin')

    That you feel the way I feel
    And you want me like I want you tonight, baby
    Tell me that you're coming through

    Ooh, you're so sweet (so sweet)
    So tight (So tight)
    I won't bite (uh-huh)
    Unless you like (Unless you like)

    If you smoke (what you smoke?)
    I got the haze (purple haze)
    And if you're hungry, girl I got filets (woo-hoo)

    Ooh, baby, don't keep me (Waiting)
    There's so much love we could be making (shamon)

    I'm talking kissing
    Cuddling
    Rose pedals in the bathtub, girl, lets jump in
    It's bubblin'

    I ain't playin' no games
    Every word that I say
    Is coming straight from the heart
    So if you're tryna lay in these arms

    I'ma leave the door open
    (I'ma leave the door open)
    I'ma leave the door open, girl, mmm
    (I'ma leave the door open, hopin')

    That you feel the way I feel
    And you want me like I want you tonight, baby
    Tell me that you're coming through
    (C'mon girl)

    La, la, la, la-la-la-la
    I need you, baby

    La, la, la, la-la-la-la
    I got to see you, baby

    La, la, la, la-la-la-la
    Girl, I'm tryna give you this
    Ah

    Hey, hey
    I'ma leave my door open, baby (I'ma leave the door open)

    I'ma leave
    I'ma leave my door open, girl
    (I'ma leave the door open, hopin')
    And I'm hopin'
    Hopin' that you feel the way I feel
    And you want me like I want you tonight, baby
    Tell me that you're coming through, woo

    (La, la, la, la-la-la-la)
    Tell me (tell me that you're coming through)

    Woo, woo-woo, woo, woo-woo, woo, woo-woo
    Woo, woo-woo, woo, woo-woo, woo, woo-woo

    (La, la, la, la-la-la-la) la, la, la, la-la
    (Tell me that you're coming through)

    Girl, I'm here just waiting for you (ayy)
    Come on over, I'll adore you (girl, gotta know)
    (La, la, la, la-la-la-la)
    I'm waiting, waiting, waiting for you (tell me that you're coming through)
    Girl, I'm here just waiting for you
    Come on over, I'll adore you

  • Sam Williams from Sherman OaksIt truly amazes me how a song like this could become a number one record in 2021. It just goes to show you how good Philly Soul music was and still is to this day. I hope Anderson and Bruno recognize the likes of Gamble & Huff and Thom Bell as influences for this song as they truly deserve to be brought into to spotlight as these two essentially took what they created about 53 years go and brought it to the forefront of younger generations in the midst of modern pop & hip hop & rappers of today’s popular musical landscape with this song. Also this song is definitely one of my favorites because the man in this song is basically asking a girl to come over to his place so they can make love & have fun. Sometimes I find myself in the situation in this song, so for me it’s very relatable. I for sure can’t wait to hear the album when it comes out. It will be nice & refreshing to hear music like this in today’s world (and this is all coming from a 25 and soon to be 26 year old btw).
