The First Night



JD:

Baby baby tell me whats up? Can you hear me?

Or do I do I need to turn it up? (Huh huh)

Baby baby tell me whats up? Can you hear me?

Or do I do I need to turn it up? (Huh what)

Baby baby tell me whats up? Can you hear me?

Or do I do I need to turn it up? (Huh huh)

Baby baby tell me whats up? Can you hear me?

Or do I do I need to turn it up? (Huh what)


Monica:

Boy this evening was it only me

Feelling completly down to be open

Down to be open for some satisfaction

Didn't want to say yes, afraid of your reaction

I knew it was wrong, but feelling this way

Exspecialy the thought of givin' in on the first date

Couldn't let go, it stayed on my mind

At the end of the night I had to decide

I was thinkin'...


Chorus:

I should make a move but I won't,

And then you probly thinkin' somethin' is wrong.

Knowin' if I do that it won't be right.

I don't get down on the first night.

I should make a move but i won't,

And then you probly thinkin' somethin' is wrong.

Knowin' if I do that it won't be right.

I wanna get down, but not the first night.


Monica:

We was chillin' watching your T.V.

I felt it was comin' the closer that you got to me

Wanted to tuch you, wanted to kiss you

And some how in one night, discoverd I love you

Felt so right, but it felt so wrong

And look how your carryin' on

Tryin' to say things to get me to stay

But my watch is telling me it's getting to late

I'm thinkin'


Chorus


Monica

If you want me you got to know (Got to know me)

And if you want my love (My love) you gotta win my love

Ba Baby that's the way its got to be

Get to know me (Get to know me) so we can do this

Oooohhh


I should (echo)

I know your probly thinkin' (echo) (I want I want babe)

Knowin' if I do (echo) (I want I want babe)

I don't get down, on the first night.

I should make a move, but I won't.

I know your probly thinkin' somethin' is wrong.

Knowin' if I do that it won't be right.

I wanna get down, but not the first night.


Repeat chorus 2x

    General CommentThis song gives out a good message like Amanda's "Everybody Doesn't." Although I never really liked this song when it was out, it's starting to grow on me now. I like how she admits she does want to "get down" but not on the first night. :)

    General CommentI agree with Simplistic because I like that line too. This is a really good song because it shows that she has morals, but she is also human.
