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?
know shouldn't hold U
But my body says I must

'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?
Whoo!
'm possessed, yeah
So crazy N love with U, baby
Yeah, 'm possessed
Yeah, so crazy N love with U, baby
Ooh

Oh
Yes, love it when the horns blow
Everybody watch me dance

Whoo
Ahh

Possessed
Whoo!

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 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...
Ow
