Lyrics

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 a'cookin'
To make a fire grow
And, baby, you've got what it takes
Now, listen, honey. (Alright, baby.)

You know, it takes a lot of kissin'
Ohhh, to make a romance sweet
Ohhh, it takes a lot of lovin'
To make my life complete

Ohhh, well, it takes somebody special
To knock my off my feet
And, baby, you've got what it takes

I said, Ooooohh
Uh huh, Ooooohh
You know you've got just what it takes

Because it takes more than an effort to stay away from you
And it takes more than a lifetime to prove that I'll be true
But it takes somebody special to make me say, "I do,"
And, baby, you've got what it takes

Uh huh, Ooooohh
Uh huh, Ooooohh
You know you've got just what it takes

Because it takes a lot of effort to stay away from you
And it takes more than a lifetime to prove that I'll be true
Well, it takes somebody special to make me say, "I do,"
And, baby, you've got what it takes
C'mon, say that again, honey
And, baby, you've got what it takes
One more time, c'mon
And, baby, you've got what it takes

You've got it, you've got it
Mmmhmm, you know you've got what it takes
You've got it, you've got it
And, baby, don't you know you've got what it takes
You've got it, you've got it
You've got it, baby!
