The greatest romance that's ever been sold
Ooh

So whataya know, U and me finally face 2 face
Checkin' each other up and down n all the obvious places
Was there ever a reason 4 us 2 b apart?
The air that fills up this room says, "Not hardly"
So this is where U end and U and I begin
This is where U and I, U and I begin

The greatest romance that's ever been sold
Ooh
The greatest romance that's ever been sold
Baby, baby

Now ur mind is open 2 poetry seldom heard
U're heart has never been broken until U've heard these words
Ur body was designed 2 respond 2 mine
N spite of ur desire 2 mold me
And n the middle of it all we kiss and like rain we fall

N2 the greatest romance that's ever been sold
Ooh baby, ooh baby, baby
The greatest romance that's ever been sold

Oh, I know U feel me, I know that U can dance (Yo)
But what do U know about the greatest romance?
Not what U think but what U believe (Tell me)
What was the real reason that Adam never left Eve?
And if the truth sounds like a memory
Then U know it was meant 2 b, meant 2 b
Leave ur inhibitions behind
C'mon, come on and see (Why?)
So this is where U end and U and I begin (U)

The greatest romance that's ever been sold
The greatest romance that's ever been sold (Uh-huh, uh-huh)

I know U can feel me, I know U can dance
But what do U know about the greatest romance? (The greatest romance)
Not what U think but what U believe
Can U tell me the rea..., ur reason that Adam never left Eve?
(The greatest romance that's ever been sold) Listen 2 me, uh
U brought me the grapes from the vine, oh yes U did
(The greatest romance that's ever been sold) Can I talk 2 U?
Listen, can U help me 2 remember the secrets of time? (Ooh)

And U... U offer me ur love... so divine
And n return, girl, and n return I will surrender, oh yeah
I will surrender, oh yes I will
Ooh

The greatest romance that's ever been sold
