Sit yourself down, girl, and talk to me;
Tell me what's uh on your mind.
Don't keep on tellin' me everythings OK,
Cause if it was, then you wouldn't be cryin'
You been tossin' and turnin' in yo' sleep lately,
Sittin' round poutin' all day long.
Now how in the hell you expect me to understand,
When I don't even know what's wrong?
Let's straighten it out.
Let's straighten it out.
Let's straighten it out, baby,
Let's straight it out.
For the last five nights, honey, when we went to bed,
Oh, I could tell somethin' just wasn't right.
When you turned your back to me and you covered your head,
Then you didn't even say goodnight.
Now if you tired, and you don't want be bothered baby,
Just say the word and I'll leave you lone.
Instead of layin' out cryin' yo' eyes out, baby,
You and me oughta be getting' it on.
Let's straighten it out
