I guess U've heard of my reputation
I've had my share of foolin' around
But everybody needs stimulation
And mine just happens 2 b all over town
It's an easy-money occupation
1st-class psychiatry
But just once, I'd like 2 make love without taking off my clothes
Just once, I wanna make love with somebody who really and truly knows

Contrary 2 rumor, gigolos get lonely 2
All my lovers need stimulation
But honey babe, I think that I need U

Maybe U're the kind of person
That could turn my world around
Won't U gimme a little inspiration?
Maybe that's what I need 2 make me settle down
But it's an easy-money occupation
But honey, 1 thing understand
I've got more money than U could imagine n ur wildest dreams
But honey, uh, money don't make no happy man

Cuz contrary 2 rumor, gigolos get lonely 2
Yes they do
All my lovers need stimulation
But honey babe, I think that I need U
{scatting}

Just once, I want a love without taking off my clothes
Just once, I want a love with someone who really knows
I got more money than U could ever see
But money won't make me get off my knees

Gigolos get lonely 2, yeah
All my lovers need stimulation, yeah (I'll sleep with U)
Honey babe, I think that I need U
Contrary 2 rumor, yeah, gigolos get lonely 2
All my women (lovers) need stimulation, yeah
Honey babe

Ooh baby
