"Red Light Special" as written by and Kenneth Edmonds....
Take a good look at it
Look at it now
Might be the last time you'll
Have a go round
I'll let you touch it if you'd
Like to go down
I'll let you go further
If you take the southern route
Don't go too fast
Don't go too slow
You've got to let your body flow
I like 'em attentive
And I like 'em in control

Baby it's yours
All yours
If you want it tonight
I'll give you the red light special
All through the night
Baby it's yours
All yours
If you want it tonight
Just come through my door
Take off my clothes
And turn on the red light

I know that you want me I can
See it in your eyes
You might as well be honest 'cause the
Body never lies
Tell me your secrets and I'll
I'll tell you mine
I'm feelin' quite sexy
And I want you for tonight
If I move too fast just let me know
'Cause it means you move too slow
I like some excitement
And I like a man that goes

Baby it's yours
All yours
If you want it tonight
I'll give you the red light special
All through the night
Baby it's yours
All yours
If you want it tonight
Just come through my door
Take off my clothes
And turn on the red light

If you want me
Let me know it
I'll make time but
You've got to show it
If you need me
I want to see
But don't mistake me
I don't want you down on your knees
I need someone a real man
I need someone who understands
I'm a woman a real woman
I know just what I want
I know just who I am

Baby it's yours
All yours
If you want it tonight
I'll give you the red light special
All through the night
Baby it's yours
All yours
If you want it tonight
Just come through my door
Take off my clothes
And turn on the red light

    General Commentrar. how very sexy. this is a woman who knows what she wants in a lover. very empowering. she feels a man should feel privileged to be her lover.

    General Commentdefinitely one of the sexiest songs of all time. however, it would be much more alluring if i didn't know kenny edmonds wrote it. he has the sole writing credit, so i'm guessing that means no woman contributed to these lyrics which any guy would love to hear sung to him at 2 a.m. on a friday night. regardless, this song is steaming.

    it kinda sounds like an ernie isley guitar solo. that's what i came here to do: comment on this song's sexiness, express remorse that it actually wasn't written by a woman, and find out if ernie isley played the guitar on this one. but it doesn't seem like anyone has discussed the guitar solo...which is pretty sexy too!

    General Commentthe guitar solo was written and composed by guns and roses guitarist Slash. I cant believe he did that, just seems like its not his style but I think it adds so much spice to the song. Babyface writes the best songs so I dont know why people are bashing him

    General CommentBy the way, knowing what a "red light special" is, it's kind of creepy that a guy wrote this song. lmao

    General CommentI guess the song, to me, never felt like it came from a woman's point of view. I'm listening to it now, but finding out that Baby composed it (of course) and that people have issues with it... I'll have to give it another listen.
    OKAYE... so the verses are what she's saying to her man && the chorus is what she wants to hear from him. She wants to him to be in control and she wants to hear him say: "I'll give you the RLS"

    && Slash on the guitar??? YESSSS!! ♥
