98 Degree Blues

I'm gonna get up in the morning
do like Buddy Brown
Gonna get up in the morning
do like Buddy Brown
I'm gonna eat my breakfast
rider, and lay back down
I say, I'm gonna eat my breakfast
man, and lay back down

When a man get hairy
know he needs a shave
When a man get hairy
know he needs a shave
When a woman get musty, you
know she needs to bathe
I say, when a woman get musty
oh, you know she needs a bathe

I've got something to tell you, make the
hair rise on your head
I've got something to tell you
make the hair rise on your head
Got a new way of loving a woman, make the
springs screech on her bed
I've got a new way of loving a woman
make the springs screech on her bed

If you don't believe I love you
look what a fool I've been
If you don't believe I love you
look what a fool I've been
Woman, if you don't believe I love you
ah, look what a shape I'm in

Says I love my baby, baby, lord
better'n I do myself
I says I love my baby
better'n I do myself
If she don't love me, she won't
love nobody else
