Hey
Ah

Something's the matter baby, I'm goin' insane
Something inside of me keeps talkin' 2 my brain
Why can't I stop this demonic lust?
I know I shouldn't hold U, but my body says I must

I'm possessed
And I don't know what I'm gonna do
I'm possessed, ooh
And I'm so crazy n love with U, baby
Oh
Ooh

Something's the matter baby, U're all I see
Ur voice is all I hear beggin' 2 me
I wish I didn't need U, I wish I didn't care
I wish U find another soul, ur love's 2 much 2 bare

I'm possessed, ooh
And I don't know what I'm gonna do
I'm possessed
I'm so crazy n love with U, baby
Oh
Ooh...

Does anybody want this body?

Something's the matter baby, my mind's n a daze
Trippin' off ur love, girl, it's so hard 2 relate
I can't stop this yearnin', Lord knows I've tried
Free me from dispair, I'm much 2 young 2 die

I'm possessed, ooh
And I don't know what I'm gonna do
I'm possessed, ooh
And I'm so crazy n love with U, baby
Does anybody want this body?
Whoo!
I'm possessed, yeah
So crazy n love with U, baby
Yeah, I'm possessed
Yeah, so crazy n love with U, baby
Ooh
I'm possessed
Oh
I guess I love it when the horns blow, everybody watch me dance

Whoo
Oh my

Listen
If U really relate 2 the feelin'
Let me hear U say yeah, say yeah
Uh
Hurt me
Whoo

Now, now if U really relate 2 the feelin'
Let me hear U say yeah, say yeah
Alright, if U really relate 2 the groove
Let me hear U say ooh, ooh

Have U ever had the feeling
That someone was tearing U up n2 little bitty pieces
And contemplating selling U 4 a jigsaw puzzle?

U r like an animal running around inside the cage
Oh why aren't U due 4 a vacation? Dirty liar

Someone's n my body, someone's n my body
Someone's n my body, some...
Someone's n my body, someone's n my body
Someone's n my body, some...
Ow
