ROBERT PALMER LYRICS



ADDICTED TO LOVE

Your lights are on, but you're not home
Your mind is not your own
Your heart sweats, your body shakes
Another kiss is what it takes

You can't sleep, you can't eat
There's no doubt, you're in deep
Your throat is tight, you can't breathe
Another kiss is all you need

Whoa, you like to think that you're immune to the stuff, oh yeah

It's closer to the truth to say you can't get enough, you know you're

Gonna have to face it, you're addicted to love

You see the signs, but you can't read
You're runnin' at a different speed
You heart beats in double time
Another kiss and you'll be mine, a one track mind

You can't be saved
Oblivion is all you crave
If there's some left for you
You don't mind if you do

Whoa, you like to think that you're immune to the stuff, oh yeah

It's closer to the truth to say you can't get enough, you know you're

Gonna have to face it, you're addicted to love

Might as well face it, you're addicted to love
Might as well face it, you're addicted to love
Might as well face it, you're addicted to love
Might as well face it, you're addicted to love
Might as well face it, you're addicted to love

Your lights are on, but you're not home
Your will is not your own
You're heart sweats and teeth grind
Another kiss and you'll be mine

Whoa, you like to think that you're immune to the stuff, oh yeah

It's closer to the truth to say you can't get enough, you know you're

Gonna have to face it, you're addicted to love

Might as well face it, you're addicted to love
Might as well face it, you're addicted to love
Might as well face it, you're addicted to love
Might as well face it, you're addicted to love
Might as well face it, you're addicted to love

BAD CASE OF LOVING YOU

A hot summer night fell like a net
I've gotta find my baby yet
I need you to soothe my head
and turn my blue heart to red

Doctor Doctor, gimme the news I got a
Bad case of lovin' you
No pill's gonna kill my ill I got a
Bad case of lovin' you

A pretty face don't make no pretty heart
I learned that buddy from the start
You think I'm cute, a little bit shy
Mama, I ain't that kind of guy

Doctor Doctor, gimme the news I got a
Bad case of lovin' you
No pill's gonna kill my ill I got a
Bad case of lovin' you

I know you like it, you like it on top
Tell me mamma, are you gonna stop?

You had me down twenty-one to zip
Smile of Judas on your lip
Shake my fist knock on wood
I got it bad, and I got it good.

SIMPLY IRRESISTIBLE

How can it be permissible
She compromise my principle, yeah yeah
That kind of love is mythical
She's anything but typical

She's a craze you'd endorse, she's a powerful force
You're obliged to conform when there's no other course
She used to look good to me, but now I find her

Simply irresistible
Simply irresistible

Her loving is so powerful, huh
It's simply unavoidable
The trend is irreversible
The woman is invincible

She's a natural law, and she leaves me in awe
She deserves the applause, I surrender because
She used to look good to me, but now I find her

Simply irresistible
Simply irresistible

Simply irresistible She's so fine, there's no tellin' where the money went
Simply irresistible She's all mine, there's no other way to go

She's unavoidable, I'm backed against the wall
She gives me feelings like I never felt before
I'm breaking promises, she's breaking every law
She used to look good to me, but now I find her

Simply irresistible
She's so fine, there's no tellin' where the money went
Simply irresistible She's all mine, there's no other way to
go

Her methods are inscrutable
The proof is irrefutable, Ooh-ooh-ooh-ooh-ooh-ooh-ooh
She's so completely kissable, huh
Our lives are indivisible

She's a craze you'd endorse, she's a powerful force
You're obliged to conform when there's no other course
She used to look good to me, but now I find her

Simply irresistible
Simply irresistible

She's so fine, there's no tellin' where the money went
Simply irresistible She's all mine, there's no other way to go
She's so fine, there's no tellin' where the money went
Simply irresistible She's all mine, there's no other way to go

Simply irresistible

SOME LIKE IT HOT

We want to multiply, are you gonna do it
I know you're qualified, are you gonna do it
Don't be so circumscribed, are you gonna do it
Just get yourself untied, are you gonna do it

Feel the heat pushing you to decide
Feel the heat burning you up, ready or not

Some like it hot and some sweat when the heat is on
Some feel the heat and decide that they can't go on
Some like it hot, but you can't tell how hot 'til you try
Some like it hot, so let's turn up the heat 'til we fry

The girl is at your side, are you gonna do it
She wants to be your bride, are you gonna do it
She wants to multiply, are you gonna do it
I know you won't be satisfied until you do it

Some like it hot and some sweat when the heat is on
Some feel the heat and decide that they can't go onV Some like it hot, but you can't tell how hot 'til you try
Some like it hot, so let's turn up the heat 'til we fry

Feel the heat pushing you to decide
Feel the heat burning you up, ready or not

Some like it hot and some sweat when the heat is on
Some feel the heat and decide that they can't go on
Some like it hot, but you can't tell how hot 'til you try
Some like it hot, so let's turn up the heat 'til we fry

Some like it hot, some like it hot
Some like it hot, some like it hot
Some like it hot, some like it hot

Some like it hot, some like it hot

YOU'RE GONNA GET WHAT'S COMING

You came upon me like a landslide,
Once in a while I get taken like that and I like it.
I've got a Thunderbird parked right outside,
Give me a minute to finish this thing and we'll light it.
In all this heat it's a job keepin' cool
And I could fry an egg on you.
You came upon me like a landslide,
Once in a while I get taken like that and I like it.

You're gonna get what's coming,
You been askin' for it two days runnin'
You're gonna get what's comin'
You're gonna get what's coming to you.

I hope that you're half as intrepid as you make out,
Often or not, but you never got what you asked for.
Keep on pouring until you hear me shout,
And turn up the sound if you want me to drive any faster.
Caution went out when you walked in the room,
If it never came back it would be too soon.

You're gonna get what's coming,
You been askin' for it two days runnin'
You're gonna get what's comin'
You're gonna get what's coming to you.

You came upon me like a landslide,
Once in a while I get taken like that and I like it.

You're gonna get what's coming,
You been askin' for it two days runnin'
You're gonna get what's comin'
You're gonna get what's coming to you.

JOHNNY AND MARY

Johnny's always running around
Trying to find certainty
He needs all the world to confirm
That he ain't lonely
Mary counts the walls
Knows he tires easily
Johnny things the world would be right
If it would buy truth from him
Mary says he changes his mind
More than a woman
But she made her bed
Even when the chance was slim

Johnny says he's willing to learn
When he decides he's a fool
Johnny says he'll live anywhere
When he earns time to
Mary combs her hair
Says she should be used to it
Mary always hedges her bets
She never knows what to think
She says that he still acts like he's
Being discovered
Scared that he'll get caught
Without a second thought

Johnny feels he's wasting his breath
Trying to talk sense to her
Mary says he's lacking a real
Sense of proportion
So she combs her hair
Knows he tires easily

Johnny's always running around
Trying to find certainty
He needs all the world to confirm
That he ain't lonely
Mary counts the walls
Says she should be used to it

SHE MAKES MY DAY

I feel so lucky loving her
Tell me what else is magic for
She thinks it's better left unsaid

She makes her mind up at a glance
It really made a difference
I seem to be unconditionally hers

She's like a new girl every day
And all the rest don't bother me
I'm far too busy lovin' her

I'll never be lonely now I know her
     (She
Now I know her
She fills my heart with joy
     (that's in our best interest. She makes my day)
She just has to smile to blow my cares away
     (She
She just has to touch my hand to make me stay

She's all good lovin' at once
She's all good lovin' at once
She's all good lovin' at once
She's all good lovin' at once

Our love was unintentional
She says we're not responsible
She thinks with her chin up

She always makes uncommon sense
Always knows just what to say
She always takes me unawares

In less time than it takes to fall down here
And there you are
We never fought it anyway

I'll never be lonely now I know her
     (She
She fills my heart with joy
     (that's in our best interest. She makes my day)
She just has to smile to blow my cares away
     (
She just has to touch my hand to make me stay

I feel so lucky loving her
Tell me what else is magic for
She thinks it's better left unsaid

She makes her mind up at a glance
It really made a difference
I seem to be unconditionally hers

She's like a new girl every day
And all the rest don't bother me
I'm far too busy lovin' her

I'll never be lonely now I know her
     (She
She fills my heart with joy
     (that's in our best interest. She makes my day)
She just has to smile to blow my cares away
     (
She just has to touch my hand to make me stay

She's all good lovin' at once
She's all good lovin' at once
She's all good lovin' at once
She's all good lovin' at once
She's all good lovin' at once
She's all good lovin' at once
She's all good lovin' at once
She's all good lovin' at once
