"Sleep On It" as written by and Marti Dodson Pat Buzzard....
I hope you don't mind me saying
I think you're so lovely
I hope you don't mind me staying
'Cause I might never leave
We could rewind to nothing
And start at the beginning
Don't forget to breathe

Baby, I don't have much
But I've got more that enough to keep you
Isn't it nice to touch
Something solid you can cling to?
Baby, I promise you this
You don't know just what you're missing
I've got everything you're wanting
Maybe we could sleep on it tonight

I didn't mean to alarm you
Subtlety's my weakness
Give me a minute to charm you
And you'll know what I mean
Maybe I didn't mention
You won't regret my attention
I've got tricks you've never seen

Baby, I don't have much
But I've got enough to keep you
Isn't it nice to touch
Something solid you can cling to?
Baby, I promise you this
You don't know just what you're missing
I've got everything you're wanting
Maybe we could sleep on it tonight

Now that it's all out on the table,
Come and get it
You better love me while you're able

Baby, I don't have much
But I've got enough to keep you
Isn't it nice to touch
Something solid you can cling to?
Baby, I promise you this
You don't know just what you're missing
I've got everything you're wanting
Maybe we could sleep on it tonight

Baby, I don't have much
But I've got enough to keep you
Isn't it nice to touch
Something solid you can cling to?
Baby, I promise you this
You don't know just what you're missing
I've got everything you're wanting
Maybe we could sleep on it tonight

    General CommentSurprised no one has posted on this song. Anyway...I think it's obvious what she's talking about and as direct as it is, it's as if she still hasn't given up hope. She even says "maybe we could sleep on it tonight," as if he goes home and comes back, he'll change his mind.

    Really interesting that she's stating her case through the whole song.

    General CommentThis song reminds me of this boy i know
    he is the nicest boy i've ever met
    but its not woking out =[[
    and for some reason i can't give up
    even though i should.

    General Commentwow i just searched this song and no ones wrote on it :/
    its one of my favourites of all time <3

    i think its about her liking a certain boy and is willing to do whatever it takes to get him, and she asks him if he could 'sleep on it tonight' as in to think about them being together ? x
