"Do What You Want" as written by and Billy Preston....
I saw you standing alone across the crowded room
You look so fine oh baby
But I knew you wouldn't make the move
So what am I supposed to do with you
Looking but you just don't act
You gotta make your move
And it ain't in the groove
Come on now baby don't hold back
So you gotta
Throw away your inhibitions
Come on and make the man's decision
Tell me now what is your ambition
Show me all the things that I've been missing
[chorus]
Do what you want to
Say what you gotta
Be what you want to be with me baby
Sooner or later your gonna have to
Do what you want to do with me yeah
Out on the sidewalk
You're acting like you just come out there
Don't disappoint me baby
I know that you're concerned that you care
So you gotta
Throw away your inhibitions
Come on and make the man's decision
Tell me now what is your ambition
Show me all the things that I've been missing
[chorus]
When you gonna show me that you understand (please baby) [X3]
When you gonna treat me like your a man (Please baby) [X2]
Come on show ya now
[chorus X2]
Do what you want to (Do what you wanna)
Be what you want to (be what you wanna)
Sooner or later your gonna have to
Do what you want to do with me yeah
