Tom Tom Club – Measure Up lyrics

If you live in the city or you live in the bush, love is a thing that you just don't rush
Look at my boyfriend and you'll see what I mean
I'm not gonna blow it by spoiling his dream
I can see that apple, high up in a tree
I'm not going to rock it, let it fall to me
Speak of the devil and he'll walk right in
If he talks to me, I'm just giving in
Take a little measure (Take a little measure), measure up my heart (Measure up)
The shark could eat me (Shark could eat me) or I could eat the shark (Measure up)
Take a little measure (Take a little measure), a measure of my soul (Measure up)
If there's still cold water (Still cold water), then I'm running cool (Measure up)
If you live in the mountains or down by the sea, love is a thing to make your heart bleed
I'm awake, it's alright, I just jumped to my feet
I smile so hard, you can see all of my teeth
The boy fills me with such energy, I'll play this hand intuitively
We'll ignore the problems that destroy the rest
Turn good to better and better to best
Take a little measure (Take a little measure), measure up my heart (Measure up)
The shark could eat me (Shark could eat me) or I could eat the shark (Measure up)
Take a little measure (Take a little measure), a measure of my soul (Measure up)
If there's still cold water (Still cold water), then I'm running cool (Measure up)
If you live in the desert or among the trees, love is a thing to take at your ease
Well, I can take us, go ride the waves
We'll serve the time for the rest of our days
We'll see all the places that we've never been
No matter where, our love will begin
I know he's not the only fish in the sea but man-oh-man there is no other for me
Take a little measure (Take a little measure), measure up my heart (Measure up)
The shark could eat me (Shark could eat me) or I could eat the shark (Measure up)
Take a little measure (Take a little measure), a measure of my soul (Measure up)
If there's still cold water (Still cold water), then I'm running cool (Measure up)
