(I told you, if Jermaine likes it... then I like it)

(Don't leave
Don't, don't leave)
(Repeat x8)

I am thinking of you in my sleepless solitude tonight
If it's wrong to love you
Then my heart just won't let me be right
'Cause I've drowned in you and I won't pull through without you by my side

I'd give my all
(My all)
To have
(To have)
Just one more night with you
I'd risk my life to feel
(To feel)
Your body next to mine
'Cause I can't go on living in the memory of our song
I'd give my all for your love tonight

So put your loving arms around me, boy
And hold me like I was a cuddly toy
Let me feel that warmth of your embrace
Don't let go
'Cause there could be no sadder sight to see
Than if we were to miss this opportunity
So send me up a signal and I'll catch the line
If there's no time, you know it's up to you
So why don't you

Stay a little while, child
(Stay)
Stay a little while... child
(Stay)
Stay a little while, child
(Stay)
Stay a little while... child
(Ooh)

(Now let's take it uptown, get down)

Well since you put it that way, honey I'm gon' stay
And only your love can make Peter parlay
Let the limo leave, we'll cancel the flight
And not only will I stay, girl I'm spending the night
And if it's right, I'm spending my life all out
And if it seems like I'm rushing, then I'll sleep on the couch
MC, it's your call
I'm ready to ball and if you need me, I'm ready to brawl

And that's forever by law
Together we ball, we takin' it all
I make you feel the way a woman never felt before
I seen women on many levels, never hot and young
With a body like that, that face no flaw
You got to be heaven-sent, sayin' you's a dime
You off the meter and a seven then
You like the way I rhyme
Yes shine, I'm a veteran
Picture me and honey spending money like whatever then
We both got it

Why don't you
Stay a little while, child
(Stay)
Stay a little while... child
(Mmm, why don't you)
Stay a little while, child
(Stay)
Stay a little while... child
(Ooh)

There's no need to act surprised
'Cause there's no room to serve this right
So let's push love to the limit and life to the edge
I've only one request of you
Stay awhile

I'd give my all to have just one more night with you
I'd risk my life to feel your body next to mine
'Cause I can't go on living in the memory of our song
I'd give my all for your love tonight
