How long can you go
Oh can you go a dozen times?
How long can you smile
Oh can you smile a dozen smiles?
'Cos ev'ry way holds a something that's nice
Try it once and then you'll try it twice
Oh mercy, mercy

Chorus

Oh lawdy lawdy
I'll scratch a your back
If you'll just scratch mine:
'Cos when I'm out of sight
Then I'm out of mind.
Oh mercy mercy
Do it over and over again
Scratch your back
You scratch mine
Oh lawdy lawdy

How long will it last
It's getting harder off the cuff
How long does it take
There must be someone with enough
'Cos everytime holds something that's better,
Go on get on up, and forget the letter

Chorus
R E P E A T

How much do you need
What does it take to get you off?
No one's ever made it
Are you tryin' to make me laugh?
'Cos until now you been and tried all the rest,
So now's the time you gotta try out the best

Chorus
R E P E A T

I'll scratch your back you scratch mine
How you scratch mine
Oh lawdy lawdy I'll scratch your back you scratch mine
