  • To all the lovers in the place... lovers in the place
    This song is for you, this song is for you
    To all the haters in the place... haters in the place
    I ain't singing to you... I ain't singing to you

    It's been a long crazy week, all I want is a little time
    Rest my hands, cross my feet, let it go tonight
    Leave the stress at home, tell the drama no
    You ain't gonna kill my vibe, oh no

    I look at you, you look at me, you are ready now
    What I want, what I need is to meet me on the floor
    I can feel your love when our bodies touch
    If anyone is feeling like me tonight

    [Chorus]
    Now throw your hands up for the next three minutes it's about the lovers
    (You know it, you know it)
    Baby stand up if you're single but you're looking for another
    (You know it, you know it)
    Ladies tell your men you love them (yeah)
    Fellows tell your girl you love her (yeah)
    So throw your hands up for the next three minutes it's about the lovers

    Thinking about the ones that are looking down on you and me
    Lovers in together now, now I'm completely free
    Life is way too short, you might as well get yours
    Lord knows I'm doing me

    To all the lovers in the place...
    This song is for you, this song is for you
    To all the haters in the place...
    I ain't singing to you... I ain't singing to you

    [Chorus]

    If your lover ain't around
    That don't mean you can't get down
    (you know it, you know it)
    And if you came her all alone
    Find someone and hold them close
    (you know it, you know it)

    So throw your hands up
    And baby let me see you stand up
    And if you're single it don't matter
    'Cause this song is for everyone who believes in love

    [Chorus]

    To all the lovers in the place... lovers in the place
    This song is for you, this song is for you
    To all the haters in the place... haters in the place
    I ain't singing to you... I ain't singing to you Writer/s: CLAUDE N KELLY, FLOYD NATHANIEL HILLS, MARCELLA N ARAICA
