Joe Tex – I Gotcha lyrics

Oh, I gotcha!
Uh-huh, huh!
You thought I didn't see ya, now
Didn't ya? Uh!
Uh-huh, huh
You tried to sneak by me, now
Didn't you?
Uh-huh, huh
Now, give me what you promised me
Give it here, come on!


Good God!

You promised me the day
That you quit your boyfriend
I'd be the next one
To ease on in

You promised me
It would be just us two
And I'd be the only man
Kissin' on you

Now, kiss me
Hold it a long time
Hold it!
Don't turn it-a loose, now
Hold it
A little bit longer, now
Hold it!
Come on!
Hold it, girl
Hold it, come on
Hold it!
Hold it!
A-ease up for me
Now, get back
You're high!
The girl's alright, ya'all
Good Lord!

You made me a promise
And you're gonna stick to it
You shouldn't have promised
If you wasn't gonna do it

You saw me and ran
In another direction
I'll teach you to play
With my affection

Now, give it here
You never should-a promised to me
Give it, here
Don't hold back, now

Give it, here
Don't say nothin'
Just give it, here
Come on!

Give it, here, uh!
Give it, here, uh!
Give it, here
Give it, here!
Give it to me, now!
You're high!

Oh, I gotcha
Never should-a promised to me
You never should-a promised to me
Give it on, here

I gotcha!
You thought you got away from me
Didn't the door lock?
Gotcha, ha-ha-ha

Oh, I gotcha
Give it on up
I've gotcha!
Give it over, here
I gotcha
You tried to sneak from me
Now, didn't you?

Oh, I gotcha
Ooh, I gotcha!
