(duet with luther vandross)

Janet:

Boy, when you look at me

Do you judge me by my cover?

Ya got to be kiddin me,

To think that I'm that kind of lover

I don't mean to disagree

Sorry you can't buy my kisses

Open your heart and see

True love comes for free

Luther:

I'm keepin my heart open

Hopin you wont stab me in it

Cause I've been in love before,

And when I had to pay I didn't

Ill lose my sanity

Tryin to measure your intentions

What do you want from me how much will it be?

Janet:

No more than youre willing to give cause

You wont pay nothin for this good lovin

Its for free

Luther:

And I wont make you promises

Ill just do all that I can to be your lover

Cause I understand

Chorus:

The best things in life are free

Now that I've discovered what you mean to me

The best things in life are free

Now that weve found each other

The best things in life are free

Luther:

I know you are my baby

My one and only baby

You said it twice

Ill say it thrice

My baby baby baby

Janet:

I got so much love for you

And its easy to give it

When I know you feel the same way too

Luther:

That's all I expect from you

Just do all that you can to be my lover

Cause I understand (I do)

Repeat chorus

Janet:

No more than youre willing to give cause

You wont pay nothin for this good lovin

Its for free

Luther:

And I wont make you promises

You see I'm gonna be, I'm gonna be,

Were gonna be, I'm gonna be

The very best I can

To be your lover cause I understand

Repeat chorus
