Oh

I don't think that man should sleep alone
I don't think it's fair (Do you, baby)
I don't think that man should sleep alone
Somebody should be there

Oh, sugar

This world that we live in
Has too many laws and too many rules
The thought of you and me sleeping here
Seems like everybody disapproves

Now I'm not, I'm not, I'm not sayin'
I'm right, everyone else is wrong
I admit I've got a problem
I can't stand sleepin' alone, oh

I don't think that man should sleep alone
I don't feel it's right (Do you, baby)
I don't think that man should sleep alone
At least not tonight

Oh, sugar
Yeah, baby
Ooh

I can't seem to get held enough
Even before I get in the sheet
I may as well be honest, girl
I think I need a little body heat, mmm

Wake up, wake up, baby
'Cause I know it's a quarter to 3
Either you're comin' here or I'm comin' there
'Cause I just can't get to sleep, no

I don't think that man should sleep alone
I don't think it's fair (Do you, baby)
I don't think that man should sleep alone
Your body should be here, oh

Baby, come on
I wanna feel you lyin' next to me (Don't you, baby)
Sugar, come on
Mmm, sleep, oh

{Come on, come on}
Let's hold each other, baby
{Come on, come on}
I won't try nothin', baby
{Come on, come on}
But honey, it could feel good
If you only let loose, come on

I don't think that man should sleep alone
Oh, I don't feel it's right (Do you, baby)
I don't think that man should sleep alone
You should be here tonight

Help me, baby, yeah, ooh
I need body heart (Don't you, baby)
Sugar, come on, girl
I wanna feel your shoo doo bop shoo doo bop

Baby, come on
Sugar, come on, girl, mmm
I wanna feel your heart, oh
