By R. Goodrum / G. Ballard

Ooh, ooh, ooh

Oh, yeah

Baby, what's your hurry

Where are you going so fast

You can keep your motor runnin'

But don't run out of gas

Getting there is half the fun

Cause you've got the rest of the night to hold me

And the best of my love's yet to come (yet to come)

For the rest of my life I'm gonna love you

So take a little longer, my love can only get stronger

(Stronger, stronger)

If we're gonna climb a mountain

We gotta take our sweet time

When you're traveling down love's highway

Don't you know speeding is a crime

Listen, getting there is half the fun

Cause you've got the rest of the night to hold me

And the best of my love's yet to come (yet to come)

For the rest of my life I'm gonna love you

So take a little longer

My love can only get stronger (stronger, stronger)

Oh, my Baby, we gotta slow down (ooh)

Take your time, ease your mind (oh, Baby, mmm)

Stronger, rest of my life, I'm gonna love you

So just take a little longer, and our love is gonna get stronger

(Cause you've got the rest of the night) oh---, yeah

(And the best of my love) yet to come (yet to come)

Oh, baby, for (rest of my life) I'm gonna love you

I want you to take your time

Love me baby, love me baby, love me, love me (rest of my life)

Slow down baby, I ain't going no where (best of my love)

So why don't we just take our sweet time (rest of my life)

Don't rush me, you're gonna crush me, let the feeling come

Oh, remember that song about a slow hand (rest of the night)

Now she had the right idea (oh--)

So, Baby, what's the hurry, (best of my love)

We've got forever

If we don't use it up too fast (oh, ah--)

Take it slow, calm down, smell the roses

We'll get there, don't you worry

(Rest of the night, to hold me) (best of my love, yet to come...)
