Roots – Get It On Tonite lyrics

~~Verse 1~~
When I'm looking at you, I keep thinkin'
Why can't she be like you
So I'm scheming,
I can't go through this, believeing, that her love is true
Standing on the dance floor, while she's trickin'
You are all I want girl, she's a chicken
We might be together, but love is missing
Girl I want you, So what can we do?

Girl, if it's all right
Lets go somewhere and get it on tonight
You shouldn't have to be alone tonight
Its one on one tonight, tonight

~~Verse 2~~
Now she's lookin' at me, but keep talkin'
Oh, now she's tryin' to ice you, lets start walkin'
Over on the dance floor, it's her fault
But what can she do? Tell me baby

~~B Section~~
Mj: Girl, If your ready
Girl: I'm ready
Mj: We can get it on
Girl: We can get it on
Mj: I know where I went wrong
Girl: She's where you went wrong
Mj: With you is where I belong

Girl, if I could find the words to say
I've gotta get away, from a love
That kills me everyday, I'd gladly say to you
