Oh, ooh baby there's something that I gotta tell you
Maybe you should know what's on my mind
Ooh, baby I'm feeling out situation
Its gettin' stronger and we're on it
But I gotta take my time

See there's so much about you that I want to explore
Physical attraction we just can't ignore it
But before we go to far across the line
I gotta really make sure that I'm sure

Slow down babe
Lets take our time (slow down babe)
Slow down babe
If you don't mind (babe slow down)
Slow down babe
Before we make this move
Slow down babe (before we make this move)
Baby slow down (I think it's really to soon)

Ooh baby i'ts like I've known you forever
My medulla obligata
Is electrified
Ooh baby
Whenever were alone together
I'm bout' to explode and it feels so right
But I gotta take my time

See there's so much about you that I want to explore
Physical attraction we just can't ignore it
But before we go to far across the line
I gotta really make sure that I'm sure

Slow down babe
Lets take our time (slow down babe)
Slow down babe (slow down babe)
If you don't mind (babe slow down)
Slow down babe
Before we make this move (I'm feeling good too)
Slow down babe (but before we make this move)
Baby slow down (I think it's really to soon, soon)

See I know what is best cause I've been there before
Gave myself to someone for all the wrong reasons (reasons)
But this time around I don't want to do that again
I just want to make this the way that I've dreamed of
So baby you got to

Slow down babe (I'm feeling you)
Lets take our time (ya feeling me too)
Slow down babe
If you don't mind (no, it's really too soon)
Slow down babe (slow down babe)
Before we make this move
Slow down babe
Baby slow down (I think it's really to soon yeah)

Slow down
You got to slow down
You got to slow down
Babe slow down
You got to slow down
You got to slow down
You got to slow down
