Well now it takes more than a robin
To make the winter go
And it takes two lips of fire
To melt away the snow
Well it takes two hearts of cocaine
To make our fire grow (yes, I do)
And baby you got what it takes (that's for sure)

You know it takes a lot of kissing (tell me about it now)
To make a woman swoon
Ohhhh it takes a lot of loving
To make my life complete
Oh it takes a lot of woman
To knock me off my feet (sure)
And baby (baby) you got what it takes

I said ooooooh
(What do you say baby?)
I said ooooooh
You know you got just what it takes

Because it takes more than an effort
To stay away from you (that's right)
It takes more than a lifetime (that's right)
To prove that I'll be true
But it takes somebody special to make me say I do (oh yeah)
And baby you got what it takes (oh yes, she had, oh yes)

I said ooooooh
(I I I I I said)
I said ooooooh
You know you got just what it takes

Because it takes (oh yeah)
Will you back in my spot now honey?
(I like your spot)
And I got stay away from you
(I can't stay away from you)
It takes more than a lifetime
To prove that I'll be true
But it takes somebody special (like you)
To make me say I do
(And I know) And baby you got what it takes
[repeat till end]
