Now if I can't be your hotdog lemme be your little weiner
Baby if I can't be your regular man lemme be your in betweener
And if I can't be your human torch lemme be your submariner
Well hey baby don't you leave me this way lemme be somethin'
Yeah If I can't be your Abercrombie bitch lemme be your five and tener
If I can't be your all-the-time lemme be your now-and-thenner
And if I can't be your now-and-thenner lemme be your you-tell-me-whenner
Mmm hey baby don't you leave me this way lemme be somethin'
And if I can't be your datenut bread lemme be your soda cracker
And if I can't be your boom-a-dee boom lemme be your clickity clacker
And if I can't be your seven-course meal lemme be your midnight snacker
Yeah baby don't you leave me this way lemme be somethin'
Yeah if I can't be your lovey-dovey lemme be your flirty-flirty
And if I can't be your orchestra lemme be your little hurdy gurdy
And if I can't be your Mr Clean lemme be your Mr Dirty
Oh hey baby don't you leave me this way lemme be somthin'
Hey if I can't be your Sunday man lemme be your Monday action
Yeah well if I can't be your big big show lemme be your coming attraction
And if I can't be your coming attraction lemme be your momentary satisfaction
Yeah well hey baby don't you leave me this way lemme be somethin'
And if I can't be your bombardier let me be your tail gunner
If I can't be your serious love lemme be your just-for-funner
And if I can't be your big collision lemme be your hit-and-runner
Yeah well hey baby don't you leave me this way lemme be somethin'
