To fill the space inside of yourself, oh, with money, love or power
When you want to have the number one first run anyone
You're crazy 'til you own them, U ought to know better than that, girl
The more that you buy the less you get back, you could say

It's a case of possession obsession
It’s just a taste of possession obsession
Ooh, it brings of a case of possession, I hear you say gimme gimme
Now gimme gimme gimme, gimme gimme

The compulsion to count the percentage of time
Spent between two lovers
Can turn an hour into a crime, oh, all the good times suffer
Though you know it's only jealousy
But you can't help but be haunted by your passion
Now, don't you know it's a matter of fact
The more that you take the less you give back, I can say

It's a case of possession obsession
It’s just a taste of possession obsession
Ooh, it brings of a case of possession, I hear you say gimme gimme
Now gimme gimme gimme gimme gimme, yeah, possession
Ooh, gimme gimme, gimme gimme gimme, gimme gimme, yeah yeah

Ooh, it's a case of possession obsession
It’s just a taste of possession obsession
Ooh, it brings of a case of possession
And I hear you say, yeah yeah yeah yeah, possession
Now, don't you know it's a matter of fact
The more that you take (gimme some) the less you give back
Yeah yeah...Possession...Possession...Possession of...
Gimme some...Gimme some...Yeah yeah yeah yeah yeah...
Possession...Just a case of...Just a taste of...
Just a case of possession obsession of love...
Possession...Possessions of...Gimme some...oh ah...
