First you'll needa pay attention
The rules keep changing all the time
Before you think about approaching
Don't bother wasting all your lines

I'll spell it out
In black and white
I'll make it clear what you're gonna need tonight
It isn't hard
Just listen up
Do you think you got enough

You've gotta be tall, gotta be strong
Not too emotional
Someone to pick me up whenever I fall
You've gotta be sweet, gotta be kind
Romantically inclined
If you wanna be the one for me

Now the picture's getting clearer
But if you think you got the stuff
Before you try to take it further
You're gonna need to have the touch

I'll spell it out
In black and white
I'll make it clear what you're playing for tonight
It isn't hard
Just listen up
Do you think you got enough

You've gotta be smart, gotta be wise
It's more than bedroomised
Someone to listen whenever I call
You've gotta be cool, gotta be fine
But not the jealous kind
If you wanna be the one for me
You've gotta be

Oh, you've gotta be
If you wanna be the one for me (you gotta be cool)

I'll spell it out
I'll make it clear
It isn't hard
So when you hear
Just listen up
To what you need
It's what you gotta be

You've gotta be tall, gotta be strong
Not too emotional
Someone to pick me up whenever I fall
You've gotta be sweet, gotta be kind
Romantically inclined
If you wanna be the one for me

You've gotta be smart, gotta be wise
It's more than bedroomised
Someone to listen whenever I call
You've gotta be cool, gotta be fine
But not the jealous kind
If you wanna be the one for me
You've gotta be

You've gotta be
Gotta be
