Lyrics

Getting You in The Mood

Written By: DawsonJames DeVries

Chorus: getting you in the mood, when that timing’s right, It’s all I want to do, to make you feel allright. Getting you in the mood, when that timing’s right, I’s all I want to do, to make you feel alright. All night
Verse: Here I am now, thinking of the way to please you, It’s all I can do, To make it feel allright. We’re all alone now, I like it the way that you do, We can make it , Last all night.
Bridge: I can feel that, heat rising from your body. Your eyes wide open, pleasure within. It’s about time, we got this party started. Cause I can tell that, you’d like to begin.

Turnaround: X2 !
Verse 2: She’s got me drowning in desire, she uses everything that she wants. Wish she would light my world on fire, You know I like the way that she flaunts.
Chorus: “ “
Turnaround: X2!
Chorus: “ “

Verse 3: I find it hard to be around her, Her silky skin turns me on, She eats me up like clam chowder, I wish I knew what I’m doing wrong.

Bridge : I, know you’re probably wondering but, You can’t relate, you can’t even ponder, My…
Verse 2: through these eyes, the stars are sized, like grains of sand, in ocean tides, the road is long, there’s much to do, to pave the path of solitude
