And I must admit you're looking very, very, very nice these days.
Oh me?
I've got a new lady now and it's a little different than it was when I was with you.
But more than that, I think of how you changed me with your love and sensitivity.

That's what I used to do Use and abuse them
It was pain before pleasure
With every measure, baby
I was cold as ice, long ago baby, baby
Sugar, sugar, sugar
You turned on my fire, baby
Took me a little higher
You turned on my fire, baby
Fire and desire, baby
And I thank you baby
Oh how I thank you, baby.
that since you've been gone
You know, it's funny how a man can change so quickly from a cold blooded person,
Remember how I used to do that?
Remember when you used to
TM: Love them and leave them (oh)
Then I laid eyes on you
That was my claim to fame
Tasted your teardrop stains, yeah
[Rick James (Teena Marie)]
(I, I wasn't, I, I wasn't very nice, I know)
(You turned on)
(You turned on)
(You turned on)
(Fire and Desire)
(you turned on fire)
(You burned me, you burned me)
(Fire and Desire)
