  • Baby the harder you work the further you get with me, with me
    I think you can, I think you can
    Turn up prepared and make sure that you can keep up with me, with me
    I think you can, I think you can

    But be aware, I always get what I deserve
    Keep your focus, keep your nerve
    Ready, set, go

    Pick up the pace and step on it
    Rip up the place if you want it
    Work, work
    You know you gotta work, work
    I got the goods and I want you
    Put your boots on baby get to
    Work, work
    You know you gotta work, work

    I tend to get what I want to, are you starting to see, to see
    I think you do, I think you do
    It's time for you to step up if you wanna be with me, with me
    I think you do, I think you do

    But don't go slow
    That is not the way we play
    Slowly ain't my kinda game
    Ready, set, go

    Pick up the pace and step on it
    Rip up the place if you want it
    Work, work
    You know you gotta work, work
    I got the goods and I want you
    Put your boots on baby get to
    Work, work
    You know you gotta work, work

    And it's up to you how far we take this
    Yes it's up to you so take the lead
    And it's up to you so tell me what I gotta sign
    Waiting at the finish line baby
    Ready, set, go

    Pick up the pace and step on it
    Rip up the place if you want it
    Work, work
    You know you gotta work, work
    I got the goods and I want you
    Put your boots on baby get to
    Work, work
    You know you gotta work, work

    Pick up the pace and step on it
    Rip up the place if you want it
    Work, work (work)
    You know you gotta work, work
    I got the goods and I want you
    Put your boots on baby get to
    Work, work
    You know you gotta work, work, work, work
    Oh yeah
    Work, work
    You know you gotta work, work
    You know you gotta work, work Writer/s: HARRY MIKAEL SOMMERDAHL, INA WROLSDEN, KARL JONAS PETTER ENGSTROM
