Love Me True
I want you sweeter than sugar
darker than night
and capable of making me
in what I shouldn't.
I want you lovely,
a she-devil at night
and give me what you
with velvet claws.
I want you chaste
enjoy the chase
you have never been caught.
I want you strong
and very tender
a tiger and a kitten
is that too much
and offer me security.
Now you have my head spinning
you are looking for superman
let me don my cape
in the telephone booth
and get my self
a spandex outfit.
Great, and you should
also be a great lover
You got criteria
I'm not sure I fit.
And the two decided to not to mix
love and business.
So she settled for Mr. Right Now, Right Here
and he settled for Single Nights
each having made a stand
for the future.
