"Anything" as written by and Porcaro/paich/dozier/mischke/trugman....
It's gonna take a lot
To drag me away from you
There's nothing that a hundred men
Or more could ever do

No, I don't know
What you do when you do what you do, boy
But baby, baby, baby, baby
I don't even care no more

You've got me so
Caught up in this careless voodoo, boy
But baby, baby, baby, babe
I wanna be there for sure

'Cause every time that we rendezvous
I don't wanna go back home
And every time that I'm holding you
There ain't no way to let you go

You're shining down, boy, the game is through
And I don't wanna play no more
'Cause the only one that I want is you
So tell me what you wanna do because baby

'Cause I just can't stay away
There's nothing that I can do
And baby, you can have your way
Just as long as I can have you

And I'd do anything, baby
Do anything for ya
You, and I'd do anything, baby
Do anything for ya

Now I've been told
That you got you got you a few
And you ain't sure
But baby, baby, baby, baby
You gon' wanna let him go

'Cause I've been sold
On you, I don't check for dues no more
'Cause baby, baby, baby, baby
You the way I wanna roll

'Cause every time that we rendezvous
I don't wanna go back home
And every time that I'm holding you
There ain't no way to let you go

You're shining down, boy, the game is through
Listen, I don't wanna play no more
'Cause the only one that I want is you
So tell me what you wanna do because baby

'Cause I just can't stay away
There's nothing that I can do
And baby, you can have your way
Just as long as I can have you

'Cause I'd do anything, baby
Do anything for ya
'Cause I'd do anything, baby
Do anything for ya

I'm down, anything, boy, you and me
It's the way you know it's supposed to be
'Cause I would do anything for you

I'm down, anything, boy, you and me
Should be doing what comes naturally
'Cause I would do anything for you

'Cause I just can't stay away
There's nothing that I can do
And baby, you can have your way
Just as long as I can have you

See, I'd do anything, baby
Do anything for ya
See, I'd do anything, baby
Do anything for ya

'Cause I just can't stay away
There's nothing that I can do
And baby, you can have your way
Just as long as I can have you

'Cause I'd do anything, baby
Do anything for ya
'Cause I'd do anything, baby
Do anything for ya

'Cause I'd do anything, baby
Do anything for ya
'Cause I'd do anything, baby
Do anything

    General CommentI have to say... I love a lot of Jojo's music. It's very catchy. But I have lost a lot of respect for her after this song. It of course, samples "Africa" by Toto and that is a classic, awesome song. One of my all-time favorites. She butchered it and it sends chills down my spine whenever I hear it. I cannot believe she ruined such a classic song.

    General CommentSo i really think that song meanings really come out from how ur feeling so one person can take one song one way and then another may take it totally different. Thats the beauty of music.
    >> Anyway>>
    This song is about a girl who is seeing this guy but there not official and all she wants is for this guy to be hers...She loves when there together, and never wants to leave him

    love this song..

    General Commenti think she did the song beautifully. "Africa" is a beautiful song about something different, but she took the music and replaced the lyrics very nicely. the music has been sampled numerous times in R&B because it's so unique but i think Jo's song is one of the best if not *the* best...

    General Commenti disagree with the first comment. I quite like this song. she didn't kill it, the tune and everything flows well together.

    Also, couldn't help but notice that some lyrics are wrong. This is what I hear should be the lyrics:

    -----

    I don't wanna go back home
    And every time that I'm holding you
    There ain't no way to let you go
    You're shining down boy the game is through
    I don't wanna play no more
    Cause the only one that I want is you
    So tell me what you wanna do because baby

    Cause I just can't stay away
    There's nothing that I can do
    And baby you can have your way
    Just as long as I can have you

    And I'd do anything baby
    Do anything for ya
    Cos I'd do anything baby

    Now I've been told
    That you got you a few and you ain't sure

    General CommentI actually also disagree that she's ruined it. I really love her version, yes it's a different style to the origional, but it's very catchy and just as good.
