  • Some boys got the look of a Greek Adonis
    Some boys try to talk you off your feet
    Some boys they're gods gift to woman
    Some boys think they're sweet enough to eat
    Try to change the habit of a lifetime
    Don't even try
    Cause when you cut down deeper than the icing
    You realize

    What you get is what you see
    Ain't nothing more to it
    And if you want to love a woman like me
    It takes a man to do it
    If what you get is what you see
    Then I don't want your kind of love

    Some guys got lips that you can't help kissing
    And some guys got a smile you can't resist
    Some guys gotta build a reputation
    They just want to add you to the list
    You got a lot of physical attraction
    I can't deny
    But can you guarantee me satisfaction
    While I'm still waiting, waiting, waiting....

    What you get is what you see
    Ain't nothing more to it
    And if you want to love a woman like me
    It takes a man to do it
    If what you get is what you see
    Then I don't want your kind of love

    So let me see your cards on the table
    Before I buy
    I always read the writing on the label
    So give me reason to believe there's more to you than meets the eye Writer/s: GRAHAM HAMILTON LYLE, TERRY BRITTEN
