Flesh and blood
Only flesh and blood {sampled}
Oh yeah, yeah
Only flesh and blood

OK baby, I hear U talkin'
U say U got it goin' on
OK baby, I am walkin'
But U better not try 2 steer me wrong
I guess U could say that I've been used 2 love no good
But I'm ready and willin' if U treat me like I should b treated

I'm only flesh and blood, I'm only flesh and blood
But I will do what's necessary when love's revolutionary
I'm only flesh and blood, I'm only flesh and blood
I will do what's necessary when love's revolutionary, oh
Flesh and blood
Mmm

OK baby, is this ur language? (Only...)
And will it keep my grass evergreen? (Only... flesh and blood)
OK baby, U b Napoleon (Only...)
U b Napoleon and I'll b Joséphine
I'd never ever let a lover comb my hair on me (Only...)
But I'd give it all up if I can live out my fantasy

I'm only flesh and blood, I'm only flesh and blood
I will do what's necessary when love's revolutionary
I'm only flesh and blood, I'm only flesh and blood (Oh)
I will do what's necessary when love's revolutionary, oh
Oh, flesh and blood (Oh)

When I hear U talkin' and I am walkin' (Flesh and blood)
And I can do what's necessary now
But I've already seen Los Angeles, I've been 2 Rome
I already heard the usual, "I'll buy U a car, I'll buy U a home"
Give me somethin' I can believe n (Flesh and blood)
Give me somethin' I can use
And give me a kiss that'll make me go ba-ba-ba-ba-boom
And I'll give up the fuse

Flesh and... {sampled}

OK baby, I hear U talkin' (Only...)
U say U got it goin' on (Only...)
OK baby, I am walkin' (Only...)
But U better not try 2 steer me wrong (Only)
I guess U could say that I've been used 2 love no good
I'm ready and willin' if U treat me like I should b treated

I'm only flesh and blood, I'm only flesh and blood
But I will do what's necessary when love's revolutionary (Get it on)
I'm only flesh and blood, I'm only flesh and blood (Yeah)
I will do what's necessary when love's revolutionary (Oh yeah)
I'm only flesh and blood, I'm only flesh and blood (Oh yeah)
I will do what's necessary when love's revolutionary
(Come on and tell me what's on ur mind)
I'm only flesh and blood, I'm only flesh and blood
(Talk 2 me, girl)
But I will do what's necessary when love's revolutionary (Yeah)
I'm only flesh and blood, I'm only flesh and blood
I will do what's necessary when love's revolutionary

I am walkin' right now (Only...)
Right now (Only... flesh and blood)

Only flesh and blood {sampled}

Only flesh and blood, only flesh and blood
I will do what's necessary when love's revolutionary (Yeah)
Only flesh and blood, only flesh and blood (Ooh Lord)
