Lyrics: Daryl Hall, John Oates, Sara Allen
Music: Daryl Hall

Easy ready willing overtime
When does it stop, where do you dare me to draw the line
You got the body now you want my soul
Don't even think about it say No Go
Now I'll do anything you want me to
I'll do almost anything that you want me to
But I Can't Go For That
No Can Do
I can't go for being twice as nice
I can't go for just repeating the some old lines
Use the body now you want my soul
Oo forget about it say No Go
Yeah I'll do anything you want me to
I'll do almost anything that you want me to
But I Can't Go For That
No Can Do.

    I think, they sold their soul to the devil and they made a commitment where they sold their body and now hes (it) asking for his soul and hes saying no to that. It has nothing! To do with an affair i believe, which is why they were only a hit in the early 80s and the that was the end of them.
