"Straight Up" as written by and Elliot Wolff....
Lost in a dream;
I don't know which way to go.
A-let me say if you are all that you seem,
Then baby, I'm movin' way too slow.
I've been fooled before;
Wouldn't like to get my love caught in the slammin' door.
How about some information, please?

Straight up, now tell me ,
Do you really wanna love me forever,
Oh, oh, or am I caught in hit and run?
Straight up, now tell me,
Is it gonna be you and me together,
Oh, oh, oh, or are you just havin' fun

Time's standing still waiting for some small clue.
I keep getting chills when I think your love is true.
I've been a fool before;
Wouldn't like to get my love caught in the slammin' door.
How about some information, please?

Straight up, now tell me ,
Do you really wanna love me forever,
Oh, oh, or am I caught in hit and run?
Straight up, now tell me,
Is it gonna be you and me together,
Oh, oh, oh, or are you just havin' fun

You are so hard to read.
You play hide and seek with your true intentions.
If you're only playin' games, I'll just have to say:
A b-b-b-bye, b-b-b-b-bye.
Do, do you love me, do you love me, baby?
Do, do you love me, do you love me, a hey baby?
Do, do you love me, do you love me, baby?
Do, do you love me, do you love me, a-tell me baby!

I've been fooled before;
Wouldn't like to get my love caught in the slammin' door.
How about some information, please?

Straight up, now tell me ,
Do you really wanna love me forever,
Oh, oh, or am I caught in hit and run?
Straight up, now tell me,
Is it gonna be you and me together,
Oh, oh, oh, or are you just havin' fun

Straight up, now tell me ,
Do you really wanna love me forever,
Oh, oh, or am I caught in hit and run?
Straight up, now tell me,
Is it gonna be you and me together,
Oh, oh, oh, or are you just havin' fun

    General CommentI love this song! It's great to dance to and expresses every emotion you have when you like a guy. You don't want to be hurt again.. you've been hurt enough and it's easier just to hear it straight up than being played around with. Some might say "well, wouldn't you be able to tell if they're not really into you?" Well, you know, when you are in deep smit with some guy, lets face it, you're thinking is definitely impaired. Love this song.. good release of energy!

    General CommentThis song explains how I feel about guys right now. My last boyfriend was a dick and just played around with my feelings for him. I'd much rather hear it from him "Straight Up" than be hurt after I gave him everything.
