Yeah yeah yeah
Yeah yeah yeah
Yeah yeah yeah
Yeah yeah yeah

I love you
But I gotta stay true
My morals got me on my knees
I'm begging please stop playing games

I don't know what this is
Cause you got me good
Just like you knew you would

I don't know what you do
But you do it well
I'm under your spell

You got me begging you for mercy
Why won't you release me
You got me begging you for mercy
Why won't you release me

I said release me

Now you think that I
Will be something on the side
But you got to understand
That I need a man
Who can take my hand yes I do

I don't know what this is
But you got me good
Just like you knew you would

I don't know what you do
But you do it well
I'm under your spell

You got me begging you for mercy
Why won't you release me
You got me begging you for mercy
Why won't you release me

I said you'd better release
Yeah yeah yeah

I'm begging you for mercy
Yes why wont you release me
I'm begging you for mercy

You got me begging
You got me begging
You got me begging

You got me begging you for mercy
Why won't you release me
You got me begging you for mercy
Why won't you release me

You got me begging you for mercy
I'm begging you for mercy
I'm begging you for mercy
I'm begging you for mercy
I'm begging you for mercy

Why won't you release me yeah yeah
Break it down

    General Comment:In case anyone is wondering what she is saying during the rap part, here it is:

    (2:11) -

    You look at me and think we're the same kind
    'Cos you don't know what I got and,
    I'm gonna get more than I'm asking for,
    But I just don't want to waste my time.

    You know that I'll be the other girl,
    Just like there's nothing in this world.
    I know that I'm gonna get me some
    I just don't know where to get it from.

    General Comment:This in an excellent song!!! so catchy and really gets u singing along without even knowing it. she has an amazing voice as well... the lyrics are fab too.

    Typical situation that we all find ourselves in sometimes. theres a perfect guy who can do no wrong and totally captivates us with his every move..."I dont know what you do but you do it well, im under your spell" and sometimes we just cant help falling for them even thought we know it might not be rights so we just want them to screw up somehow, showing us mercy!!!

    i think i over-anylised it but oh wells. i loooooove it!!!

    and wooooop! 1st comment!:D

    General Comment:Yeah I agree it's like a classic from another era.
    This line "Will be some thing on the side" to my mind, seems like the song is sung by a mistress to her married lover.

    General Comment:Very good beat and overall song, this artist is amazing and well round, I've listened to a few tracks from her and so far she's very talented, nice sweet voice and soulful performance.

    You MUST listen to I'm scared . Though the lyrics are not here yet
