Lyrics

I know something that you would never believe

I wish I was able to finally make you agree


Now you set me straight

And you tell me things and erase my slate

I'll do what you say

As long as you feel

That I can be here without sex appeal


I know something that you would never believe

I wish I was able to finally make you agree

It's times like this, baby, that makes it all seem worthwhile

I'm lookin' for something that I can't find in a smile


Now you set me straight

And you tell me things and erase my slate

I'll do what you say

As long as you feel

That I can be here without sex appeal
