Back in the day when I was younger.
I fell in love about every summer.
And I would be calling up the radio.
To dedicate my favorite song to her.
And I sung along with everything.
The words in the song, they spoke to me.
Now I need to know, where did the music go.
Cause my heart is crying out.

I need a love song, about now.
Don't need no ring tone, songs now.
Please tell the DJ, slow it down.
I wanna think about my baby now.
I want a old school type of slow jam.
You know the kind that really used to romance.
When Luther used to sing like 'baby'
And Michael made the world go crazy.
I need a twelve play, two step, Kelly kinda record (Oh)
I need a love song right now.

(Ooh. C'mon, c'mon, c'mon)

Back in the day when I got older.
The music in me had taken over.
So I wrote the songs that made the lovers dance.
Like "I'll Make Love" and "Breathe Again"
Now I want to know, where love has been.
It's just not the same, as it was back then.
And the world needs to fall in love again.
Cause my heart is crying out.

I need a love song, about now.
Don't need no ring tone, songs now.
Please tell the DJ, slow it down.
I wanna think about my baby now.
I want a old school type of slow jam.
You know the kind that really used to romance.
When Luther used to sing like 'baby'
And Michael made the world go crazy.
I need a twelve play, two step, Kelly kinda record (Oh)
I need a love song right now.

And remember when we used to slow grind.
Everybody used to electric-slide.
We'd be partying the whole night.
And then we took it home, oh baby
Rock the boat to the radio, don't ya' know, I miss it all right now.
Cause my heart is crying out.

(X2)
I need a love song, about now.
Don't need no ring tone, songs now.
Please tell the DJ, slow it down.
I wanna think about my baby now.
I want a old school type of slow jam.
You know the kind that really used to romance.
When Luther used to sing like 'baby'
And Michael made the world go crazy.
I need a twelve play, two step, Kelly kinda record (Oh)
I need a love song right now.

I need a love song.
Please tell the DJ.
I need a love song.
Please tell the DJ.
