I never met a girl who makes me feel the way that you do
(You're alright)
Whenever I'm asked who makes my dreams real
I say that you do
(You're outta sight)
So fee fi fo fum

Look out baby 'cause here I come
And I'm bringing you a love that's true so get ready
So get ready
I'm gonna try to make love to you so get ready
So get ready here I come
Get ready, 'cause here I come
I'm on my way
Get ready, 'cause here I come

If you wanna play hide and seek with love let me remind you
(It's alright)
The loving you're gonna miss and the time it takes to find you
(It's outta sight)
So fiddle-lee-dee fiddle-lee-dum

Look out baby 'cause here I come
And I'm bringing you a love that's true so get ready
So get ready
I'm gonna try to make love to you so get ready
So get ready here I come
Get ready 'cause here I come
I'm on my way
Get ready 'cause here I come
Get ready

All my friends shouldn't want you to I understand it
(Be alright)
I hope I'll get to you before they do the way I planned it
(Be outta sight)
So twiddle-dee-dee twiddle dee dum

Look out baby 'cause here I come
And I'm bringing you a love that's true so get ready
So get ready
I'm gonna try to make love to you so get ready
So get ready here I come
Get ready, 'cause here I come
I'm on my way
Get ready 'cause here I come, boy
Get ready 'cause here I come, boy
