Yeah
Oh yeah, yeah
Yeah now, yeah, uh

Darling, mm, it appears 2 me
That U could use a date 2night
A body that'll do U right, uh
Am I qualified, yeah?
Darling, uh, I know it's hard 2 believe, yeah
This body here is free 2night, mm
Ur very own 1st class flight
And my plane's parked right outside

I'm an international lover
Let me take U around the world, yeah
I'll buy U diamonds and pearls
Only if U're good, girl, yeah

Darling, I know it's been a long time
Since U've been satisfied
I can tell by the look n ur eyes
That U need it real bad, yeah oh
Baby baby baby, if U're good, girl
I'll introduce U 2 my ride
Don't U wanna come inside?
Come on, baby, I won't fly 2 fast, I've got so much class

I'm an international lover
Let me take U around the world
I'll buy U diamonds, pearls
Only if U're good, girl
Let me say it 1 more time, 1 more time
I'm an international lover, yeah
And baby, U can b my pet
I know how 2 keep U wet
Peggy, r U listening?
Only if U're good, girl
Break it down

Good evening, this is ur pilot Prince speaking
U r flying aboard the Seduction 747
This plane is fully equipped with anything ur body desires
If 4 any reason there is a loss n cabin pressure
I will automatically drop down 2 apply more
2 activate the flow of excitement
Extinguish all clothing materials, pull ur body close
Place my lips over ur mouth and kiss normally

N the event there's overexcitement
Ur seat cushion may b used as a flotation device
We ask that U please observe the "No Letting Go" sign
I anticipate a few turbulence along the way
Yeah, yeah!
We r now making our final approach n2 Satisfaction
Bring ur lips, ur arms, ur hips n2 the upped and locked position
Hahaha...
Yeah, yeah!
Ahh
Welcome 2 Satisfaction
Please remain awake until the aircraft has come 2 a complete stop
Thank U 4 flying Morris International, don't touch the cymbals
The next time U fly, fly the International Lover

Give me a nice ending right here
Just touch the cymbals a little bit, U know, just...
Fiddle around a little bit
Did U like that?
Wanna do it again?
Ahh
