Ooh, such a velvet touch, you'd melt a heart of stone 

Anytime, anyplace, I'm just the fool who puts a smile on your face
A slave to love and keep you young 
All it takes and no mistakes is just a slip of the tongue 

And if I want a little love I gotta take a little pain
Make me think a thousand times before I kiss again 
I'm waiting on your, every day and every night
If I don't try to satisfy there's gonna be a fist fight 


The sun is slowly rising and I'm sinking to my knees 
I'm dying just to close my eyes, I'm begging, darlin' please 
I hear you calling and I'm crawling cross the floor 
I give you everything I got and still you ask for more
