Somebody get a fireman
Somebody come along and hose me down
I think I'm going crazy
She got me dancin' like a clown
The d.j. plays desire
(catch a fire)
Wanna take you higher
(liar liar)
This gun's for hire
She's gonna burn my playhouse down

She said her name was venus
I think she came out of the nile
But all my friends who've seen her
Say she's not by style
The tv's showing "dallas"
(shrinking alice)
Down the streets of paris
(elysee palace)
I lost my balance
She turned me upside down

Y'know I can't stop I can't stop
I can't stop must be love must be love
I can't stop I can't stop
I can't stop I can't get enough can't get enough
I can't stop I can't stop

I squeeze her in a taxi
With legs up to my ears
She smiles and then she smacks me
I think she's getting pretty weird
And then she took me swimming
(I was grinning)
In the beginning
(my head was spinning)
I said you gotta be kidding
She turned and stole my heart away

I can't stop I can't stop I can't stop
Gotta be love I can't get enough
I can't stop I can't stop I can't stop
Gotta be love gotta be love
I can't stop I can't stop

She's burning with desire
(I'm catching fire)
I can't get no higher
(on the wire)
Call me a liar
(but I'm a trier)
Yes, I'm a liar
(and getting shyer)
But I think I've gotta retire
If I survive tonight

Y'know I can't stop I can't stop I can't stop
Can't get enough of this funky stuff
I can't stop I can't stop I can't stop
Must be love gotta be love
I can't stop I can't stop
Must be love
