Morning
Some of y'all may think
That this next track
A little risky for a Luther joint
But all you gotta do is listen to get it
Get it right
Alright, ch'all, lets start from number one
And get down till it's done

Now watch this sketch as I stretch this mall
Too live to drive so we put it in park
With Luther hoping that you feeling his groove
Get you open on the instruments too, one two, one two
And I say, jottin' down the lines
Like dots on the Parkway
My Auntie Eloise say stay on your Q's and P's
And until the days of D's, I'm doin' what I please
Ease on down like the road
Depending on the mood, definitely into more
And you can catch a yellow brick
You need to run and tell your click
That the female in town is bringing it
Now listen, Mission Impossible
Keep it general like the hospital
Shake, rattle and roll, to rock wit' chu
The Pre to the C-I-S-E do

Let's get this thing to workin'
There's no reason to wait
The time is now to start it
We all could use the change

Do it till we get it, get it right
Till we get it
Ain't no doubt, "Cise" is gonna turn it out
Do it till we get
Stay with it and get it right
Do it till we get it
Never stop, Luther take it to the top
Do it till we get it
Take the time and get it right

Get all up in your back and down your spine
Got to keep it on track like the A train line
To the junction out in Brooklyn
What's your function
Keep you lookin' once again
As I punch in those lines like the SV-1200
Precise on the mic, you
But we gon' get top shot at the party
Started rockin'
And I got first dibs on the dark skinned kid

And I know just how to do it
To make it really nice
There's no mystery to it
Do it till you get it right

Do it till we get it, get it right
Till we get it
Ain't no doubt, "Cise" is gonna turn it out
Do it till we get
Stay with it and get it right
Do it till we get it
Never stop, Luther take it to the top
Do it till we get it
Take the time and get it right

Feels so good to get it
Get it
It's so good to get it
Get it, get it right
Feels so good to get it
Get it
It's so good to get it
Get it, get it right

And oh, don't give up now
We can make it, we can take it right to the top
Come on and never stop
Oh, and let's reach for the sky
And if we keep believing we can never go too high
Why don't we give it a try
Come on and keep reaching up
And don't you worry
No, you won't use up your stuff
No way to get enough
Do it till we get it right
And even if it takes from morning till way into night
We got to

Do it till we get it, get it right
Till we get it
Ain't no doubt, "Cise" is gonna turn it out
Do it till we get
Stay with it and get it right
Do it till we get it
Never stop, Luther take it to the top
Do it till we get it
Take the time and get it right

Till we get it
Ain't no doubt, "Cise" is gonna turn it out
Do it till we get it
Stay with it and get it right
Never stop, Luther take ya to the tpo
Do it till we get it
Take the time and get it right

How y'all feeling tonight
Better hold on tight
Throw your hands in the air If you're getting it right
What we got you'll like
But it's not quite the regular jam
Luther and Precise
How y'all feeling tonight
Better hold on tight
Throw your hands in the air if you're getting it right
What we got you'll like
But it's not quite your regular jam
Luther and Precise

Every girl wants my guy (My guy)
And I can understand it (They want my guy)
Well, they ain't never gonna get him (My guy)
Why can't they see that the boy loves me?

Oh, I'm hot tonight like dynamite
So I know I can keep that man
When it comes to love I'm a cut above
Any other woman
I'm a rough and tough and ready girl (Ow)
So don't you even try it
He can never find any love like mine
So don't you know you're wasting time?

Every girl wants my guy (My guy)

When they see my guy walking down the street
The other guys are mesmerized
He's the kind of guy that they wanna be
But they know not to even try
He's a rough and tough and a ready guy (Ow)
So I don't even worry about
Any girl who thinks she can turn his eye
I feel bad for her when she finds out

Every girl wants my guy (My guy)
And I do understand it (They want my guy)
Well, they ain't never gonna get him (My guy)
Why can't they see that the boy loves me?

Oh, same old thing. Girls trying to jerk me for my man.
Um hmm. Oh yeah, Mm hmm. Miss Thang is really after him.
Uh huh. Yeah, but you know, I'm going for a black out with him.
Oh yeah, girl, he's been snatched by me now.
We are full search, for sure
He is so totally tubular. (We want your guy)
Who is... who is that? Who else is on the line?
Kitty, do you have a party line? Well, let me tell you all something.

I Wish It Would Rain

length: 4:40
producer: Luther Vandross
mixer: Michael Brauer
recording engineer: Michael Brauer
composer: Barrett Strong, Norman Whitfield
lyricist: Roger Penzabene
Sunshine blue skies please go away
The girl has found another and gone away.
With her went my future my life is filled with gloom
So day after day I stay locked up in my room.
I know to you, it might sound strange but I wish it would rain,

'Cause so badly I wanna go outside
But everyone knows that a man ain't supposed to cry
Listen, I gotta cry 'cause crying eases the pain,
Oh yeah, people this hurt I feel inside.
Words could never explain, I just wish it would rain.

Day in day out my tear-stained face
Pressed against the window pain,
My eyes search the skies desperately for rain,
Cause rain-drops will hide my tear -drops
And no one will ever know that I'm crying,
Crying when I go outside.
To the world outside my tears,
I refuse to explain, oh I wish it would rain,
Let it rain, let it rain.
I need rain to disguise the tears in my eyes.
Oh, let it rain.
I'm a man and I got my pride
Til' it rains I'm gonna stay inside and let it rain.

Better Friends Than Lovers

length: 4:12
producer: Luther Vandross
mixer: Michael Brauer
recording engineer: Michael Brauer
writer: Michael Lovesmith
Ooooohhh
Why are we fighting
Why do we scream
Seems all we do now is treat each other mean
We used to be so understadning
About each others ways
Since we've come together
Seems all we do is get in each other's way

[Chorus]
Better Friends than lovers ( so much better friends)
We used to have a ball
Let's not wait until the friendship breaks
Cause we don't have to lose it all
Better friends than lovers
Honey can't you see
You need you and I need me
So its time now to set each other free

You get mad when guys stare at me
And I'm mad when girls look
I don't believe we're ready now
For living by this book
The things we love about us
Are the things we seem to hate
When we go out for good times
We just come home with big headaches

[Chorus]

We were both out there fishing
We weren't ready to care
And no room in our hearts for love
To love each other back

[Chorus]

We come home with big headaches

[Chorus]

I Got Your Love

recording engineer: Michael Brauer
writer: Luther Vandross
[Chorus]
I got your love
It's all that i got
I got your love
It's all i ever think about
I got your love
Every last drop
I got your love
It's all I ever think about
It's all I ever think about
It's all I ever think about

Baby In the heart of my heart I want more
Of the man who just walked through that door
The only one that my eyes see

Baby the moments have drifted away
And the hours became lonely days
You're the answer to what i have prayed
I, I will be good to you
I, I will be good to you

[Chorus]

Baby, losing you's all that i fear
And I'm losing it when you're not here
I never could go on without you

Baby, I feel like a shower of light
And I need you right here by my side
I'm craving you all of my life

I, I will be good to you
I, I will be good to you

[Chorus]

Aah you move me
Baby
Aah you move me

I got your love
It's all I ever think about
I got your love
Every last drop
I got your love
It's all I ever think about
All I ever think about (come to me baby)
All I ever think about (come to me baby)
All I ever think about
Your love
