Chorus
Oooohhh, Aaaahhh, Your Body,
Close to my Body,
Making me so High,
Make me wana dabadoo…
Oooohhh, Aaaahh, Your Loving,
Oooohhh I wana scream,
Making me wana fly
Makes me wana dabadadoo…

Verse 1
Do you want me? Or do you wanna love me,
Tell me something I wanna Know
Divinely were reaching that place,
Your loving is what I need
I want you to cook it for me,
I want you bake it for me,
I want you to roast it for me,
Like it hot & steamy

Verse 2
Let me take you
To that place you’ve never ever been before,
Now youre her in my arms
Spiritually were growing, cus this is real
Emotions grow, we losing ourselves,
I want you to cook it for me,
I want you bake it for me,
I want you to roast it for me,
Like it hot & steamy

Bridge / Middle 8
Slowly hold me (Take me baby)
Love me; touch me (To those places)
Take me baby
Wana be your lady
