 The easy, fast & fun way to learn how to sing:

Security, yeah yeah
I want some security
I want security, yeah
Without it I'm at a great loss
Yes I am, now
Security, yeah, yeah
And I want it any cost, yes I do now

Don't want no money now
Don't want no pay
But with security, yeah, yeah
I'll have all these things
Yes, I will now

Security, yeah
That's all I want from you
Yes, I do now
Talkin' bout security, yeah, yeah
And a little love that'll be true
Right now

Your sweet lips, you know
They tell me
That you're the one for me
Darlin', how can I forget now?
How can I forget?

Security is what I want right now
Your love is all right
But I need a little more honey
I cant spend your love
At the grocery store

I need security, right now
Security, yeah
I tell you once again
Yes I will now
Talkin' about security, yeah
And I want it to the end, yes I do

Your sweet tender lips, you know
They tell me
That you're the one for me
Darling, how can I forget now?
How can I forget?
Security, yeah, security is what I want
