Hey
Ah

Something's the matter, baby, 'm goin' insane
Something inside of me keeps talkin' 2 my brain
Y can't stop this demonic lust?

'm possessed
& don't know what 'm gonna do
'm possessed, ooh
& 'm so crazy N love with U, baby
Oh
Ooh

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

'm possessed, ooh
& don't know what 'm gonna do
'm possessed
'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, baby, it's so hard 2 relate
can't stop this yearnin', Lord knows 've tried
Free me from dispair, 'm much 2 young 2 die

'm possessed, ooh
& don't know what 'm gonna do
'm possessed, ooh
So crazy N love with U, baby
Does anybody want this body?

Have U ever had the feeling
That some1 was tearing U up n2 little bitty pieces
& contemplating selling U 4 a jigsaw puzzle?

U R like an animal running around inside the cage
Oh, Y aren't U due 4 a vacation, dirty liar?

Some1's N my body, some1's N my body
Some1's N my body, some...
Some1's N my body, some1's N my body
Some1's N my body, some...
Ow
