  • Oh no! Baba bababa baba ba ba
    Baba bababa baba baba

    I can't stand still 'cos you've got me goin'
    Baba ba ba ba ba ba ba
    Your slacks are low and your hips are shown'
    Ba ba ba ba ba ba ba ba ba
    I take you girl as you're standing there
    Your low cut slacks and your long black hair
    Don't want you goin' round with no one else
    'Cause when I'm with you I can't control myself

    Defense is down and you've got me shakin'
    Baba ba ba ba ba ba ba ba
    You've got me so that my nerves are breakin'
    Ba ba ba ba ba ba ba ba ba
    If you knew me like I know you girl
    Your knees would bend and your hair would curl
    You make me move yeah like no one else
    And when I've got this feeling that's inside of me
    It makes me think of how things used to be
    It makes me feel allright
    when I'm with you at night
    and we love-and we love

    You fill me so with this big temptation
    Baba ba ba ba ba ba ba ba
    This kind of feeling could move a nation
    Ba ba ba ba ba ba ba ba ba
    And I'm okay when I'm here with you
    I do the things thatyou want me to
    But do these things for no one else
    But when I've got this feeling that's inside of me
    It makes me feel allright
    when I'm with you at night
    and we love-and we love Writer/s: REG PRESLEY
