Back to back and side to side
There's only music on my mind
Nothing to worry about but the beat
I wanted you to come and dance with me
But you wanted to stay home and watch TV
Ahhh, but when I got there to my surprise
There was another guy looking in your eyes

I don't want, don't want us to fuss and fight
From right now 'til tomorrow night
So if you promise to love only me and be by my side
I'll let you slide

Without a doubt tonight is the night
That we gon' really roll when the time is right
And we're gonna carry it into the dawn
Oh, but where are you, where can you be?
I've been waiting, it seems an eternity
I took our favorite song from the record stack
It was "Hey, Jimmy Mack"
When are you coming back?

Well I'm so disappointed you're gone tonight
'Cause your love is the spice of my life
But if you hurry back in the mornin'
Then, alright, I'll let you slide tonight
Up and down, pacing around, walking in my sleep
'Cause you've got a promise to keep
You've got to come back
And love, love, love, love me right
And, huh, I'll let you slide tonight

I can't wait till tomorrow, baby
Can't you come over tonight?
I can't get to sleep my baby
Come and rock my cradle left to right
I tossed and turned and called you up
But there wasn't anybody home
It makes me sad, I need you bad
But I guess I'm just gonna have to wait until tomorrow comes
Slide, I knew it, I knew it.
How could you do it?
Slide, it's alright, I'll let you slide tonight
I'll let you slide
Oh, how could you do it, how could you do it?
Slide, it's alright, I'll let you slide tonight

I hired me a private eye
To check up on your cool little alibis
And what he discovered was woeful to me
Baby, if you intend to stay with me
Then you can't see the guys I know you see
Come on, let's make up and promise to start anew
Let's take the morning off, I've got some plans for you

Making love by the moon can be mighty fine
But when the sun rises, so do I
So if you rock it to me in the morning
Then alright, I'll let you slide tonight
Really missed you today, I was on the run
So wake me up when the morning comes
I think I'll dance to some music and groove on the party lights
And let you slide tonight

Get up, oooh, let's love baby
Be my sugar and spice in the mornin'
And alright, I'll let you slide tonight

Get up, oooh, let's love baby
It's really nice in the mornin'
And alright, I'll let you slide tonight
