Well, now, it takes more than a robin to make the winter go
And it takes two lips of fire to melt away the snow
Well, it takes two hearts a-cookin' to make a fire grow
And, baby, you've got what it takes

You know it takes a lot of kissin' (tell me about it)
To make a romance sweet
Oh, it takes a lot of lovin' to make my life complete
Mmm, and it takes a lot of woman to knock me off my feet
And, baby, you've got what it takes

I said, mm, mm, mm, uh-huh, mm, mm, mm
Ah, ah, ah, mm, mm
You know you've got just what it takes

Because it takes more than an effort to stay away from you
It'd take more than a lifetime to prove that I'll be true
But it takes somebody special to make me say "I do"
Oh, yeah
And, baby, you've got what it takes

Ah, ah, ah, mm, mm, uh-huh, mm, mm, mm
Mmm
You know you've got just what it takes

Because it takes, oh, yeah
You're back in my spot again, honey
I like your spot
To stay away from you
I can't stay away from you
It takes more than a lifetime, daddy, to prove that I'll be true
Now it's you
But it takes somebody special
Like me, baby
To make me say "I do"
And, baby, you've got what it takes

Come on, let's play it again, huh?
Come on, let's do it one more time, all right?
And, baby, you've got what it takes
One more time, Brook
Ah-ha, okay, ah-ha
And, baby, you've got what it takes
