Ooh, now let's get down tonight
Baby I'm hot just like an oven
I need some lovin'
And baby, I can't hold it much longer
It's getting stronger and stronger
And when I get that feeling
I want Sexual Healing
Sexual Healing, oh baby
Makes me feel so fine
Helps to relieve my mind
Sexual Healing baby, is good for me
Sexual Healing is something that's good for me
Whenever blue tear drops are falling
And my emotional stability is leaving me
There is something I can do
I can get on the telephone and call you up baby, and
Honey I know you'll be there to relieve me
The love you give to me will free me
If you don't know the things you're dealing
I can tell you, darling, that it's Sexual Healing
Get up, Get up, Get up, Get up, let's make love tonight
Wake up, Wake up, Wake up, Wake up, 'cos you do it right
Baby I got sick this morning
A sea was storming inside of me
Baby I think I'm capsizing
The waves are rising and rising
And when I get that feeling
I want Sexual Healing
Sexual Healing is good for me
Makes me feel so fine, it's such a rush
Helps to relieve the mind, and it's good for us
Sexual Healing, baby, is good for me
Sexual Healing is something that's good for me
And it's good for me and it's good to me
My baby ohhh
Come take control, just grab a hold
Of my body and mind soon we'll be making it
Honey, oh we're feeling fine
You're my medicine open up and let me in
Darling, you're so great
I can't wait for you to operate
I can't wait for you to operate
When I get this feeling, I need Sexual Healing (ad lib)

    This song could use a trombone because all i hear are drums and guitar

    Strange, but for the first time ever, i am sort of doubting the complete message of the song. First he makes reference to calling on the phone and getting "healed. " booty call, right? But at the very end of the ad-lib, the last 4 lines before the end of the fade...

    "i got to have the sexual healing when i'm all alone,
    Sexual healing, darling, when you come back home,
    Please don't procrastinate,
    I'm here to masturbate"

    Strange that he refers to getting phone work twice there as well. Could this be much less love than straight booty call or even paid booty call? I just hope they really care about each other and he needs her even when one of them is on the road.

    Peace
