May have this dance?

Darlin', it appears 2 me
That U could use a date 2night
A body that'll do U right
Tell me, am qualified?
say baby, know it's hard 2 believe
But this body here is free 2night, ooh-oh
Ur very own 1st class flight
My plane's parked right outside, baby
Don't U wanna go 4 a ride?

Yeah, 'm an international lover, yeah, that's right
Let me take U around the world
'll buy U diamonds & pearls
Only if U'r good girl, ooh

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

International lover (That's right, baby)
Let me take U around the world, yeah
will buy U diamonds & pearls, baby
Only if U'r good girl (Gotta B good, U gotta B good)
Yeah, yeah, please!

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
will automatically drop down 2 apply more
& 2 activate the flow of excitement
Extinguish all clothing materials & pull my body close 2 urs
Place my lips over ur mouth & kiss, kiss normally
N the event there is overexcitement
Ur seat cushion may B used as a flotation device
La la la... ooh

We ask that U please observe the "No Letting Go" sign
anticipate a few turbulence along the way
Ooh... ow!

We R now making our final approach 2 Satisfaction
Please bring ur lips, ur arms, ur hips n2 the upped & locked position
4 landing
Can U feel it? Can U feel it?
Ooh, ow, yeah!
Mmm, 've been thinkin' about U, oh Lord yeah
Yeah... oh

Welcome 2 Satisfaction
Please remain awake until the aircraft has come 2 a complete stop
Thank U 4 flying Prince International
Remember, the next time U fly, fly the International Lover
