  • Baby let's cruise, away from here
    Don't be confused, the way is clear
    And if you want it you got it forever
    This is not a one night stand, baby, yeah so

    Let the music take your mind, ooh
    Just release and you will find

    You're gonna fly away
    Glad you're goin' my way
    I love it when we're cruisin' together
    The music is played for love
    Cruisin' is made for love
    I love it when we're cruisin' together

    Baby tonight belongs to us
    Every thing's right, do what you must
    And inch by inch we get closer and closer
    To every little part of each other ooh baby, yeah

    So let the music take your mind
    Just release and you will find

    You're gonna fly away
    Glad you're going my way
    I love it when we're cruisin' together
    The music is played for love
    Cruisin' is made for love
    I love it when we're cruisin' together

    Cruise with me baby
    Cruise, cruise

    Baby let's cruise, let's flow, let's glide
    Ooh let's open up, and go inside
    And if you want it you got it forever
    I can just stay there inside you
    And love you baby

    Let the music, take your mind
    Just release and you will find

    You're gonna fly away
    Yeah, I'm glad you're going my way
    I love it, when we're cruisin' together
    The music is played for love
    Cruisin' is made for love

    I love it, I love it, I love it, I love it
    I love it, when we're cruisin' together
    The music is played for love
