Manic Monday
6 o'clock already, I was just n the middle of a dream
I was kissing Valentino by a crystal blue Italian stream
But I can't b late cuz then I guess I just won't get paid
These r the days when U wish ur bed was already made

It's just another manic Monday (Whoa)
I wish it was Sunday (Whoa)
Cuz that's my fun day (Whoa)
My "I don't have 2 run" day
It's just another manic Monday

Have 2 catch an early train, got 2 b 2 work by 9
And if I had an airplane, I still couldn't make it on time
Cuz it takes me so long just 2 figure out what I'm gonna wear
Blame it on the train but the boss is already there

It's just another manic Monday (Whoa)
I wish it was Sunday (Whoa)
Cuz that's my fun day (Whoa)
My "I don't have 2 run" day
It's just another manic Monday

All of the nights, why did my lover have 2 pick last night 2 get down?
Last night we got down
Doesn't it matter that I have 2 feed the both of us?
Employment's down (Oh)
But when she tells me n her bedroom voice
"C'mon, honey, let's go make some noise," I can't resist
Time, it goes so fast when U're havin' fun

It's just another manic Monday (Whoa)
I wish it was Sunday (Whoa)
Cuz that's my fun day (Whoa)
It's just another manic Monday

Noon Rendezvous
I've been wondering what 2 wear
I love our noon rendezvous
I know U tell me U miss me
And I want 2 make love 2 U

Ur words, they intoxicate me
I shiver each time that U speak
How much more can I endure, my love?
Sound of ur voice makes me weak

If my body functions operate
This way when U just call my name
I'd hate 2 see when we r finally
Playing that nasty love game

Ur words, they intoxicate me
I shiver each time that U speak
How much more can I endure, my love?
The sound of ur voice makes me weak

The words r all over ur face, my love
What shall U or shall I do?
U could show me some new tricks, my love
I'd love 2 b taught by U

I've been wondering what 2 wear
I love our noon rendezvous

Make-Up
Blush, eyeliner
Hush, see what U made me do?

Base, mascara
Erase, I wanna look good 4 U

Comb hair
Don't care, I hate 2 comb my hair
Make-up, make-up

Pink, blue
Purple, I wanna make it good 4 U
Make-up, make-up
Make-up, make-up

If I wear a dress, he will never call
So I'll wear much less, I guess I'll wear my camisole
Make-up, make-up
Make-up, make-up

Smoke a cigarette, I'm not ready yet
Make-up, make-up
Make-up, make-up
Smoke a cigarette, I'm not ready yet

100 MPH
1 2 3, uh

There's a fairy tale that says, "Once upon a time
Funky music belong 2 people who drink cheap wine"

That's why I got 2 get off my own way, that's the new golden rule
Enjoy the closest human, I'm much 2 hot 2 b cool
100 miles an hour, baby, that's what it's all about
I need a lover that'll slow me down, somebody that'll make me shout

There's a misconception that says everything on the 1
And my 1st reaction is just try 2 have a little fun

That's why I got 2 get off my own way, that's the new golden rule
Enjoy the closest human, I'm much 2 hot 2 b cool
100 miles an hour, baby, that's what it's all about
I need a lover that'll slow me down, somebody that'll make me shout, uh
Hahaha
Oh

There's a fairy tale that says, "Twice n the Land of Oz
Dorothy made love 2 the Lion cuz... because because"

That's why I got 2 get off my own way, that's the new golden rule
Enjoy the closest human, I'm much 2 hot 2 b cool
100 miles an hour, baby, that's what it's all about
I need a lover that'll slow me down, somebody that'll make me shout
Make me shout
Can U make me shout?

You're My Love
U want 2 know if I care 4 U
When U ought 2 know by now
How can U stand there just pretending?
When U know how I feel

Oh baby, U're my love and I love everything U do 2 me
U're my love and I love when U're around, oh
U're my love and I'll never let U down

U want 2 know what I see n U
But I can't really say 4 sure
All I know is that I needed U
More, more than I've ever needed anyone else b4

Oh baby, U're my love and I love what U do, do 2 me
U're my love, I love when U're around, yeah
U're my love, I love when U're around

Seasons changing faster than they did when we were young
It's funny but we didn't seem 2 care
The only thing we cared about was keeping our love strong
And as long as U're there, I'll always care

U're my love, I love what U do 2 me, my love
U're my love, I love when U're around, oh baby
Honey, I love, yeah...
Stop ur pretending, U know how I feel
I love U, baby... love U... yeah...
I love U...
U're my love, U're my love, yeah

The Glamorous Life
Don't U get me?

She wears a long fur coat of mink even n the summertime
Everybody knows from the coy little wink
The girl's got a lot on her mind
She's got big thoughts, big dreams and a big brown Mercedes sedan
What I think this girl, she really wants is 2 b n love with a man

She wants 2 lead the glamorous life
She don't need a man's touch
She wants 2 lead the glamorous life
Without love it ain't much
Oh

She saw him standing n the section marked
"If U have 2 ask, U can't afford it" lingerie
She threw him bread and said, "Make me scream"
N the dark, what could he say?
Boys with small talk and small minds really don't impress me n bed
She said, "I need a man's man, baby, diamonds and furs
Love would only conquer my head"

She wants 2 lead the glamorous life
She don't need a man's touch
She wants 2 lead the glamorous life
Without love it ain't much
Ooh
Oh

They made haste n the brown sedan
They drove 2 55 Secret Street
They made love and by the 7th wave, she knew she had a problem
She thought real love is real scary, money only pays the rent
Love is 4ever and that's all ur life
Love is heaven sent, it's glamorous

Lead the glamorous life
She don't need a man's touch
She wants 2 lead the glamorous life
Without love it ain't much

She wants 2 lead the glamorous life
She don't need a man's touch
She wants 2 lead the glamorous life
Without love it ain't much, it ain't much
Lead the glamorous life
She don't need a man's touch
She wants 2 lead the glamorous life
Without love it ain't much...

Gigolos Get Lonely Too
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

No longer can I resist Ur guiding light
That gives me the power 2 keep up the fight
Oh Love... Thy will b done

Love... Thy will b done {repeated loop}
Yeah, oh!

Dear Michaelangelo
Every summer n the gardens of Florence, a peasant of female persuasion
Used 2 cry 4 Michelangelo 2 save her from death's invitation
Some say this woman was crazy, others say this woman was possessed
But just 1 look at her face and it's evident 2 her he was the best

Oh Dear Michelangelo, color the dreams n my head
I look at ur paintings and I'm with U n ur bed
Dear Michaelangelo, save me from death's invitation
I will make love 2 no 1 unless he's of ur persuasion

By summer's end came many offers, all of which the peasant refused
She wanted Michelangelo and no other, no other man would do
No 1 could speak with passion and touch her, touch her the way he does
No 1 except Michelangelo, it was him or a life without love

Dear Michelangelo, color the dreams n my head
I look at ur paintings and I'm with U n ur bed
Dear Michelangelo, save me from death's invitation
I will make love 2 no 1 unless he's of ur persuasion

A life without love, a life without love
Don't die, don't die without love
Dear Michelangelo, Dear Michelangelo

Dear Michelangelo, color the dreams n my head
I look at ur paintings and I'm with U n ur bed
Dear Michelangelo, save me from death's invitation
I will make love 2 no 1 unless he's of ur persuasion
Dear, Dear, Dear Michelangelo, angel

Dear Michelangelo, color the dreams n my head
I look at ur paintings and I'm with U n ur bed
Dear Michelangelo, save me from death's invitation
I will make love 2 no 1 unless he's of ur persuasion
{repeat chorus}

Nothing Compares 2 U

It's been 7 hours & 13 days
Since U took ur love away
Oh...
go out every night & sleep all day
Since U took ur love away
Oh...
& since U've been gone
can do whatever want
can C whomever choose
Oh...
can eat my dinner N a fancy restaurant
But nothin'...
said, nothin' can take away these blues
Cuz nothing compares...
No, nothing compares 2 U
Nothing, nothing

It's been so lonely without U here
'm like a bird without a song
Oh...
Nothin' can stop these lonely tears from falling
Tell me, baby
Where did go wrong?
can put my arms around every girl C
But they'd only remind me of U
Oh...
went 2 the doctor
Guess what he told me, guess what he told me?
He said, "Boy, U better try 2 have fun
No matter what U do"
But he's a fool
Cuz nothing compares...
No, nothing compares 2 U
Nothing, nothing

All the flowers that U planted, mama
N the backyard
All died when U went away
Oh...
know that livin' with me, baby
Was sometimes hard
But 'm willing 2 give it another try
Cuz nothing compares...
No, nothing compares 2 U
Ooh
said, nothing compares...
No no, nothing compares 2 U
