You got to be ready
You got to be ready, yeah

This woman don't like no nonsense
I like lovin' every day
And I don't like to find no evidence, no
To prove you're giving my love away
What more can I say

Except you got to be ready for love
If you wanna be mine (ready baby)
You got to be ready for love
If you wanna be mine
You got to be ready
You got to be ready

This woman don't do no hand pickin'
And I don't think one look is a felony
And I don't appreciate no rubber neckin', no
'Bout a man, when he's with me
Out in the street

Except you got to be ready for love
If you wanna be mine (be ready baby)
I said you got to be ready for love
If you wanna be mine
You got to be ready
You got to be ready

Ready for love
Ready for love
Got to be ready for love

You got to be ready
You got to be ready
You got to be ready
You got to be ready, yeah

You got to be ready for love
If you wanna be mine
You got to be ready for love
If you wanna be mine (be ready baby)

Can't be a cold lover
Just like my old lover
If you wanna be mine
You got to get ready
You got to stay ready
If you wanna be mine (be ready baby)
