Lyrics / Paroles

Whatever you got, I want
Whatever you want
Iíll give to you
Whatever you got, I want
Whatever it takes
Iím willing to do, girl

Your eyes speak
Your walk is rhythm in motion
Youíre too hot to handle
Youíre full of emotion, girl

My prideís weak
I can tell Iím standing in line again, yeah
(In line again)
When you pass by
Guys double take
Itís a crime, yeah

Where thereís a will thereís a way
(Say it)
Even with the games you play
Girl, youíve got a one track mind
(Iíll make you mine)
Iíll make you mine to stay, now, now

Whatever you got, I want
Whatever you want
Iíll give to you
Whatever you got, I want
Whatever it takes
Iím willing to do, girl

You got me
Right on your finger tips
But Iím gonna keep my balance
I wonít slip
Your sunshine ainít gonna melt my heart, yeah
If you let it shine on me
Weíll never part

Where thereís a will thereís a way
(Say it)
Even with the games you play
Girl, youíve got a one track mind
Iíll make you mine to stay, now, now

Whatever you got, I want
Whatever you want
Iíll give to you
Whatever you got, I want
Whatever it takes
Iím willing to do, girl
Yeah, yeah
Now

Whatever you got, I want
Whatever it takes
Iím willing to do
