1.Tearin' It Up
Written by Bunny Sigler and Jane Lumibao


VERSE 1:
I'm gonna make you love
If it's the last thing I do
I'm gonna make you with
That there were two of you

BRIDGE 1:
I think you're gonna need help
'Cause I've been saving my love
For nobody but you
I'll make you melt
Like the snow in the summer
'Cause you're blowin' my mind
I know it's gonna be all better
When you touch me (oh, oh, give it to me baby)
Love can't wait, You'll never get away

CHORUS:
Tearin' it up, tearin' it up
You were tearin' it up
Tearin' it up, tearin' it up
You were tearin' it up

VERSE 1

BRIDGE 2:
Sittin' here checkin' you out
I know your moves
And all your grooves
And there's no doubt
That you give off a love vibe
That's all the way live
It's a woman's perogative to change her mind
Hurry up, please stop wastin' time
Just give up, you'll never get away

Chaka: I'm gonna make you love me
Male: girl, I'm gonna make you love me too
Chaka: I'm gonna make you love me, boy

CHORUS

I know you can make it,
Keep holdin' on because times is hard
It feels so good
To get close to you, can't give it up
Let me satisfy your life's desires
I wanna take you there
Opportunity knocks with passion and emotion

Male: I'm gonna make you love me
Chaka: Ooh, say it again and again and again and again
Male: I'm gonna make you love me if it's the last thing I do
Chaka: I'm gonna make you wish that there were two of you

Gonna make you love me, babe, Gonna make you love me (7x)
Gonna make you love me, babe, again and again and a-
Gonna make you love me, babe, gonna make you love me
Gonna make you love me, babe, again and again and a-

2.Slow Dancin' (featuring Rick James)
Written by Loz Netto

I catch your reflection
Through smoke filled ayes
I begin my inspection
And I'm watchin' you
Your smooth syncopation
You synthesize
Your beatin' vibration
Makes me watchin' you

BRIDGE:
(And) If I smiled at you
Would you walk away
Or would you have this dance with me

Slow dancin' (Slow dancin')
Slow dancin' (Slow dancin')
Slow dancin' (Slow dancin')
Yeah, just you and me, baby, oh babe

Something about your freaky ways
Gives me a shiver
I watch you
You're a smooth operator
With sexy eyes, in anticipation
I watch you (I watch you, too)

BRIDGE

Slow dancin' (Slow dancin')
(Slow dancin', slow dancin')
So fine (Slow dancin')
Oh baby, slow (Slow dancin')
And goin' low (Slow dancin')
Oh just you and me

Oh you dance with, oh you dance with
Oh you dance with, oh you dance with me
Just round and round, and dance slow

La la la slow, la la la dancin'

Slow dancin', slow dancin'
Slow dancin', just you and me, babe

Dance with me, dance with me, baby, oh
(Slow dancin') Let's go grindin'
Just you and me

Baby, just one slow dance
Baby, just one slow grind
Baby, let's get down low
And see what we will find
Baby, just one slow dance
Let's give it just one slow grind
Chaka just get down low
And see what we will find

BRIDGE

Dancin' (Slow dancin')
(Slow dancin', slow dancin')
Just you and me

(Slow dancin') Baby, let's dance
(Slow dancin') Baby, get slower
(Slow dancin') Try to get lower
(Slow dancin') You and me, babe
(Slow dancin') Baby, let's dance
(Slow dancin') Baby, get slower
(Slow dancin') Try to get lower
(Slow dancin') Let's go grindin'

3.Best In The West
Written by Dominick Bugatti and Frank Musker

Best in the west, that's your name
Makin' love's your claim to fame
Better than the best, oh everyone say
How'd he learn to love that way

You're the best in the west
You're a tough sharp shooter
And you aim to win
And I wish you'd love me now
Like you did then
You're the best in the west
You're the best I've ever had
A naughty boy
And the memory of you fills me with joy
Let's do it again, let's do it again

Best in the west, when you were five
Kissed the girls and made them cry
Better than the best, oh you built your place
Lovin' is a symphony

You're the best in the west
You've been a ladies man with class
Since way back when
And you stand so high above all the men
You're the best in the west
And your lovin' seemed to fell me
From the start
And the fantasy of you is in my heart
Let's do it again, let's do it again
Let's do it again, (Ooh let's do it, baby)
Let's do it again
(The way you do it, baby's good to me yeah)

Well I'm pretty damn good myself
But I must confess
when it comes to makin' love
Baby, your the best in the west

CHORUS:
Best in the west, that's your name
When you gonna love me again
Let's do it again

CHORUS

Better than the best, everyone say
How'd he learn to love that way
Let's do it again

CHORUS

Better than the best and everyone say
How'd he learn to love that way
Best in the west, that's your name
Makin' love's your claim to fame
Let's do it again
Better than the best and everyone say
When you gonna love me again
Let's do it again
Better than the best and everyone say
How'd he learn to love that way
Let's do in again

4.Got To Be There
Written by Elliot Willensky

Got to be there
Be there in the mornin'

Got to be there
Be there in the mornin'
When he says hello to the world
Got to be there
Be there bringin' good times
And show him that I'm his girl
Oh what a feeling there'll be
The moment I know he loves me

CHORUS:
'Cause when I look in his eyes
I realize
I need him sharin' the world beside me
That's why I've got to be there

Be there in the mornin'
And welcomin' him into the world
And show him that I'm his girl
When he says hello world - world
(The moment, the moment I know he loves me)
He loves me

CHORUS

Be there when the love begins
And that's everywhere he goes
I've got to be there so he knows
That when he's with me he's home
He's home

Got to be there, to be there

Ooh baby, ooh baby
Ooh baby, ooh baby
You've got me reelin'
You've got me swingin' to your melody

Oh yeah

I never knew a man
Could love me this way
I never knew it
Now I'm happy to say
I'm gonna get some reelin'
I want a lovin' feelin'
Baby, how you blew me away
It must have been love
Wasn't ready for the heavy way
It took me by surprise
Now I'm lovin' and it feels okay
We let our lovin' take us far away

Ooh baby, ooh baby
Ooh baby, ooh baby
You've got me reelin'
You've got me swingin' to your melody

I'm in a hot house

Come on, sailor

I'm calling you, I am calling you
I wanna know do you have to go
Come on, sailor
I'm calling you, I am calling you
Calling you

Come on, baby
Come, I'll be waiting right here
Anyone's love for a price can be found
Come home with me, baby

Casbah

I'm calling you, I am calling you
I wanna know do you have to go
Come on, sailor
I'm calling you, I am calling you
Calling you

Calling you, calling you, hey you

Oh baby, what a feel in the flight
Come on, sailor

What did you say, what did you say
I wanna play, I wanna play
Why don't you stay, why don't you stay
Don't run away, don't run away

What did you say, what did you say
I wanna play, I wanna play

Play your sax for your lady
I'm makin' tracks with you, baby
Play your horn for me, baby
Heaven has hit me
Blind me completely

Ooh baby, ooh baby
Ooh baby, ooh baby

I'll drag the phone right around
There is no, not a sweeter melody
I'll drag the long night around
There is no, not a nicer melody

Mi corazón
I didn't know how to say (Con alma)
Ooh I love you
Oh what a price to pay
Ooh this time
You'll never run away
You and me, baby

Takin' giant steps, takin' giant steps

Giant steps, giant step, giant steps

6.Twisted
Written by Mic Murphy and David Frank

Here, certified unsound I feel like you
There's someone I've found, so far he's true

Out of me there's a voice which keeps calling
I'm hiding alone, crazy I know, and I am
Tied to your strings and twisted
I'm just waiting to show the others who know
And I am tied to your strings and twisted

So medication still the devil in me
So into make believe, your smile I see

Out of me there's a voice which keeps calling
I'm hiding alone, crazy I know, and I am
Tied to your strings and twisted
I'm just waiting to show the others who know
That I am tied to your strings and twisted

Hold me in this tiny room sedated here I'll stay
Next to me, I beg of you don't throw the key away

Out of me there's a voice which keeps calling
I'm hiding alone, crazy I know, and I am
Tied to your strings and twisted
I'm just waiting to show the others who know
That I am tied to your strings and twisted

I'm hiding alone, crazy I know, and I am
Tied to your strings and twisted
I'm just waiting to show all the others who know
That I am tied to your strings and twisted

I'm going crazy, boy, look out
(Tied to your strings and twisted) Look out, boy

7.So Not To Worry
Written by Colin Campsie and George McFarlane

You think she's really waiting
I heard a different tune
You'll let her think he wants her
And I think she wants him too

What she don't know won't hurt her
She's got her secrets too
She doesn't know about me
The feeling's up to you, up to you

So not to worry
Don't be afraid, not tonight
It's all the same, love
I'm in no hurry and
If we make love, it's alright

Alright (tonight)
Alright (tonight)

Bring back the day I met you
We knew it then, my love
You smiled goodbye, then told me
That your time was not your own
I see you five years later
Two thousand miles away
You left her for a mission
And I left him for the same
For the same

So not to worry
Don't be afraid, not tonight
It's all the same, love
I'm in no hurry and
If we make love, it's alright

Well, well, well, well
My, my, my, my

So much for being faithful
We've let them down again
I wasn't very helpful
And you didn't stop my hand
Stop my hand, oh

So not to worry
When we made love, it felt right
It's all the same, love (all the same, oh)
We didn't hurry (we didn't hurry)
If when we made love, it felt right, alright
So not to worry
If we make love, it's alright

(Alright) It's alright, tonight's the night
That you're gonna love me babe (aw, feels so good)
(Alright) It's alright, tonight's the night
That you're gonna love me babe (aw, it feels so good)
(Alright) It's alright, tonight's the night
That you're gonna love me babe (oooh, feels so good babe)
(Alright) It's alright, tonight's the night
That you're gonna love me babe (alright, feels so good)
(Alright) It's alright, tonight's the night
That you're gonna love me babe (feels so good)
(Alright) It's alright, tonight's the night
That you're gonna love me babe (oh, feels so good)
(Alright) It's alright, tonight's the night
That you're gonna love me babe
(Alright) It's alright, tonight's the night
That you're gonna love me babe (aw, it feels so good, feels so good)
(Alright) It's alright, tonight's the night
That you're gonna love me babe (oh, it feels so good, baby babe)
(Alright) It's alright, tonight's the night
That you're gonna love me babe (oh it's alright)
(Alright) It's alright, tonight's the night
That you're gonna love me babe
(Alright) It's alright, tonight's the night
That you're gonna love me babe (ohh)

8.Pass It On (A Sure Thing) (Pasa Lo Esta Seguro)
Written by Lalomie Washburn and Tony Maiden

A brand new meaning
For what's goin' on today
I felt it comin'
Thought I'd pass it on your way
In case your head's in the mighty fog
There's a thought, a show in the dark, I say

Pass it on, sure thing, pass it on
Pass it on, sure thing, pass it on

Pass it on, a sure thing, baby

Good things coming
If you care to wait your turn
Heart's desire
With enough here left to burn
Because the love's all around you see
If you're lovin' you will receive, I say

Pass it on, sure thing, pass it on
Pass it on, sure thing, pass it on

A sure thing, baby
Make it feel good tonight
Make it feel real good
Baby, baby, baby, baby
Well, well, well, well

Just imagine havin' to know it all
No more guessin'
'Cause your left hand's in the thought
Consult me when you need a friend
Pass it on and you're feelin' lost, well

Pass it on, sure thing, pass it on
Pass it on, sure thing, pass it on
Pass it on, sure thing, pass it on
Pass it on, sure thing, pass it on
Pass it on, sure thing, pass it on
