Featuring Shari Watson

I know you've seen me watching you
Girl, you're looking good to me
I guess that's nothing new
Except tonight, it's time for me
To finally make my move
'Cause everything you do to always
Keep yourself looking good
Gonna pay off tonight
I'll take you to a place (To a place)
Where I can lay you down
Show you chivalry
(Some women don't know what that means)
And when I take you there (Take you there)
Don't you be afraid (No, baby)
Bring your heart to me (Oh... oh... oh... oh...)
How long has it been
Since you've been loved the right way
By the right man
And the right man is me
How long has it been
Since you've been loved the right way
By the right man
And the right man is me
I know you're starting near your pain
It's all over your face
That's why I'm not just runnin' game
I only want to show you what real love is
All about
You think you had it all along
You really been without
I'll take away all the pain
I'll take you to a place (To a place)
Where I can lay you down (Lay you down)
Show you chivalry
(Some women don't know what that means)
And when I take you there (Said I'll take you there)
Don't you be afraid (Don't you be afraid)
Bring your heart to me (Give your all to me)
How long has it been (How long, how long)
Since you've been loved the right way (Has it been)
By the right man
And the right man is me (Since you've been touched in
All the right places)
How long has it been (Ooh, yeah)
Since you've been loved the right way
By the right man
And the right man is me (Oh, yeah, baby)
How long has it been
Since you've been loved the right way (By the right
Man)
By the right man (By the right man)
And the right man is me (Ooh, lady, how long)
How long has it been
Since you've been loved the right way (Since you've
Been touched in all the right places, baby)
By the right man (Ooh)
And the right man is me (Baby, tell me how long)
How Long will I go wrong
When all I've done was give him my very best
My very best
To be happy
Guess the question is, "How long?"
Will it take for it to come along
Are you that someone to call my own
How long has it been
Since you've been loved the right way
By the right man
And the right man is me (I'm what you're looking for
Me)
How long has it been
Since you've been loved the right way
By the right man
And the right man is me (I'm what you're looking for
Me)
How long has it been
Since you've been loved the right way
By the right man
And the right man is me (I'm what you're looking for
Me)
How long has it been
Since you've been loved the right way
