About 1-2-3

"1-2-3" (sometimes listed as "1, 2, 3") is a popular song by Gloria Estefan and the Miami Sound Machine. The song was written by the band's drummer and lead songwriter Enrique "Kiki" Garcia along with Estefan and appears on the multi-platinum album Let It Loose. Released as the fifth and final single from that album in the late summer of 1988, "1-2-3" peaked at #3 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart in July 1988, and was the band's seventh Top 10-hit. It also saw a second release (outside the US) in January 1989 after the success of (out of US rereleases) "Can't Stay Away From You" and "Anything For You" in late 1988. It became the band's seventh Top 10 hit in the US. In addition, the song became their fourth #1 hit on the Billboard adult contemporary chart. On the Billboard R&B chart, "1-2-3" peaked at 54, and on the UK Singles Chart it peaked at #9. After the success of the re-releases of "Can't Stay Away From You" and "Anything For You", 1,2,3 also saw a re-release outside the US in January 1989. Although the single version was very similar to the album version, it was remixed to add more horns, a stronger rhythm track, and a different intro to the song; this version was issued on Gloria Estefan Greatest Hits and The Essential Gloria Estefan. An extended version of the song was also released on 12" single.

They tell me you're a shy boy 
But I want you just the same 
Don't play innocent with me 
You know it's not just fun and games 
When I look into your eyes 
So much passion burns inside 
But if you need some coaxing 
I will do it 
Step by step there's nothing to it 

1-2-3-4 come on baby say you love me 
5-6-7 times 
8-9-10-11 I'm just gonna keep on counting 
Until you are mine 

Come out of your shell, boy 
You know we go like hand in glove 
You're afraid of giving in 
But I am never giving up on your love 
And no matter what it takes 
I will steal your heart away 
Take a chance for once you won't regret it 
Want my love just come and get it 

1-2-3-4 come on baby say you love me 
5-6-7 times 
8-9-10-11 I'm just gonna keep on counting 
Until you are mine 

So no matter what it takes 
I will steal your heart away 
Take a chance for once you won't regret it 
Want my love just come and get it 

1-2-3-4 come on baby say you love me 
5-6-7 times 
8-9-10-11 I'm just gonna keep on counting 
Until you are mine 

1-2-3-4 come on baby say you love me 
5-6-7 times 
You got to give me your love 
8-9-10-11 I'm just gonna keep on counting baby 
Until you are mine
