Lyrics

Ah ha, ah ha, ooh hoo
Alright, baby
Ooh hoo hoo hoo, hoo baby, hmm
Do do do hoo
Do do do hoo
Do do do hoo hoo hoo
Do do do do

If you look into your heart
With a positive mind
Take some inventory of your woman and your glory
Leave the bad things behind

Everybody's got a story, yes, they do
About love and the good things
But for the spices of your life, you have got to pay the price
If you know what I mean, yeah

Telling everybody, I'm letting you know
How a girl becomes so proud
When I thought that there was nothing left
I do believe I found myself and I want to give it to you, baby
Oh, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah baby

So if you look into your heart
With a positive mind
Go ahead, take some inventory of your woman and your glory
Leave the bad things behind
Hoo-hoo-hoo

I know my man, he really loves me
We don't have that every day
I know my man really needs me and whatever he want to do
I wanna do it with you, baby
Yeah yeah (yeah, yeah)
Ah ha ha
(Do do do hoo) do do do hoo
(Do do do hoo) oh, mercy, baby, mercy, baby
(Do do do hoo) do do do hoo hoo hoo
(Do do do hoo)

(Yeah, yeah, yeah) The dark of the night
Love's not an easy game and he's strong, he's straight
Now that I see what he's giving me
And whatever he wanna do, I wanna do it with you, baby, hey baby

Loving you more and more and more
And giving you all, all you need, yeah, yeah, yeah hey, mercy baby
Loving you more and more and more
And giving you all you need, ooh baby
(Loving you more) more, more
Mercy baby, mercy baby, mercy baby
