Paula Abdul Love Don’t Come Easy

It all went down at the cantina that she liked

Everyone would watch her as she danced all through the lights

She was the center of attraction in his mind

Maria thought she’d never find a man worth her time

Oooo he came into the room

Oooo she really liked the way that he began to move

They were in the mood for romancin’

There’s a fire in little Havana

Flame so hot you can’t stand it

Things are getting a little crazy

Someone better tell them that

Love don’t come that easy

(I know you’re ready boy)

We’ve got to control all emotions that we’re feeling

Love don’t come that easy

We’ve gotta be strong — swing

We’ve gotta stay strong — straight

As he took her in his arms

She got an instant chill

A sense of passion

She thought no one could make her feel

Their bodies moved with such intensity

The lights went down

Made sighs of pleasure

Like there was no one else around

Ooh now she’s in the mood

Ooh to show him what she wants to do

She’s got him crazy

There’s a fire in little Havana

Flame so hot ya can’t stand it

Thing’s are gettin’ a little crazy

Can you feel it — ooh

Are you ready — ooh

[Chorus]

Paula Abdul Opposites Attract

Baby seems we never

Ever agree

You like the movies

And I like T.V.

I take things serious

And you take ’em light

I go to bed early

And I party all night

Our friends are sayin’

We ain’t gonna last

‘Cause I move slowly

And baby I’m fast

I like it quiet

And I love to shout

But when we get together

It just all works out

I take 2 steps forward

I take 2 steps back

We come together

‘Cause opposites attract

And you know, it ain’t fiction

Just a natural fact

We come together

‘Cause opposites attract

Who would’ve thought

We could be lovers

She makes the bed

And he steals the covers

She likes it neat

And he makes a mess

I take it easy

Baby I get obsessed

She’s got the money

And he’s always broke

I don’t like cigarettes

I like to smoke

Things in common?

There just ain’t a one

But when we get together

We have nothin’ but fun

I take 2 steps forward

I take 2 steps back

We come together

‘Cause opposites attract

And you know, it ain’t fiction

Just a natural fact

We come together

‘Cause opposites attract

2 steps forward

2 steps back

We come together

‘Cause opposites attract

And you know, it ain’t fiction

Just a natural fact

We come together

‘Cause opposites attract

You know it, baby

We come together

We come together

Baby, ain’t it something how we lasted this long?

You and me proving everyone wrong

I don’t think we’ll ever get our differences patched

It don’t really matter ’cause we perfectly matched

And I take 2 steps forward

I take 2 steps back

We come together

‘Cause opposites attract

And you know, it ain’t fiction

Just a natural fact

We come together

‘Cause opposites attract

2 steps forward

2 steps back

We come together

‘Cause opposites attract

And you know, it ain’t fiction

Just a natural fact

We come together

‘Cause opposites attract

2 steps forward

2 steps back

2 steps back

We come together

‘Cause opposites attract

It ain’t fiction

You know it’s a fact

We come together

‘Cause opposites

‘Cause opposites

2 steps forward

2 steps back

2 steps back

Opposites attract

We come together

We go together

‘Cause opposites

2 steps forward

2 steps back

2 steps back

Opposites attract

We come together

We go together

Opposites

I said, opposites attract

Paula Abdul One Or The Other

If you think you’re gonna have the time

To make up your mind

You shouldn’t even try

I’m tired of hearing all of your lines

Just tell me that you’re mine

You know I’m better than she’ll ever be

It’s very clear to me

No more I’ll let you mess with me

But, baby, can’t you see

[2x]

You can only have one or the other

Is it gonna be her or is it gonna be me?

You can only have one or the other

If it’s gonna be her

You gotta set me free

Let me tell you that it hurts so bad

When you’re the last to know

My friends told me so

My heart was always just for you

But now you want her too

You see her, you try her

You’re always on fire

But, boy, I’ve got news for you

You’ve taken advantage

But, baby, you can’t have

Your cake and eat it too

You can only have one or the other

Is it gonna be her or is it gonna be me?

You can only have one or the other

If it’s gonna be her

You gotta set me free

One or the other

You can’t get it right

You say I’m your lover

But someone else is waiting

One or the other

I’m not gonna fight

This won’t last forever

So, stop your hesitating

One or the other

You can’t get it right

You’re so undercover

You always think I’m playing

One or the other

You want me tonight

I’m not gonna play it boy

No, I’m not with it

You gonna mess around?

Hm, not on my time

So, you think you can have it all?

One or the other

Uh-uh, ’cause if you can play, so can I

Ben, play!

One or the other

Is it gonna be her or is it gonna be me?

You can only have one or the other

If it’s gonna be her

You gotta set me free

You can only have one or the other

You got to get it right

Said you can’t have your cake and eat it too

You can only have one or the other

You got to get it right

Said you can’t have your cake and eat it too

One or the other

Is it gonna be her or is it gonna be me?

You can only have one or the other

If it’s gonna be her

You gotta set me free

You can only have one or the other

You got to get it right

Said you can’t have your cake and eat it too

You can only have one or the other

You got to get it right

Said you can’t have your cake and eat it too

Paula Abdul Straight Up

Lost in a dream

I don’t know which way to go.

(A-let me say it.)

If you are all that you seem

Then, baby, I’m movin’ way too slow.

Wouldn’t like to get my love caught in the slammin’ door.

You play hide-and-seek

With your true intentions.

If you’re only playing games,

I’ll just have to say

A-bye, bye, bye, bye, bye, bye, bye, bye, bye.

A-do-do you love me, do-do you love me, baby?

A-do-do you love me, do-do you love me?

Come on now.

A-tell me, baby.

I’ve been a fool before.

Wouldn’t like to get my love caught in the slammin’ door.

Or am I a page in your history book?

I don’t mean to make demands,

But the word and the deed go hand in hand.

How about some information, please?

Straight up. Now tell me (tell me)…

Paula Abdul Bend Time Back Around

He led me astray

When my mind was weak

That’s all I can say

Ba-baby

He filled me with words

And knew I would believe

He’s nothing but dirt

Sorry

If you bend time back ’round

Will you bend it to me?

If you bend time back ’round

Will you bend it to me?

If you bend time back ’round

Will you bend it to me?

If you bend time back ’round

Will you bend it to me?

He’s a pretty face

Dressed up to the “T”

Nothing but a space

Underneath

I felt like a fool

I turned from you so fast

Time takes me from you

Bend it back

[Chorus]

If I could do it once again

I’d never let the bastard in

He’s puttin’ on a show

The curtain’s crashing down and closin’

I wish to back up my steps

So you’d have nothing to forget

A flip to reality

I wanna pretend you did not see it

Dika dika dy-i-i, dika dika doo

Dika dika dy-i-i, dika dika doo

Dika dika dy-i-i, dika dika doo

Dika dika dy-i-i, dika dika doo

Twisted up in knots

He had me so confused

He turned my every thought

Away from you

I was drifted out

On a fantasy

But now I’m comin’ ’round

Back to me

[Instrumental]

Du doop du doop doo, hey- du doop du doop doo

Du doop du doop doo hey- du doop du doop doo

Du doop du doop doo, hey -du doop du doop doo

Du doop du doop doo, hey- du doop du doop doo

If you bend time back

Bend it back to me

(Oh)

If you bend time back

Bend it back to me

(Oh)

(I said)

[Chorus 2x to fade]

Paula Abdul Skat Strut

MC Skat Kat: Well You’ve never seen a kat with so much charisma

Got More Moves than a mutant nina- turtle that is

And I’m doing the Skat Strut

To hell with John Travolta and the Disco Duck

They call me Skat Kat, the dance floor maniac

One more of my hip is like an afro-disiac

Swinging and wingingI’m just doing my own thing

Girls don’t jump me

Give me room to be funky

Step to the dance floor bust a little spin

(I thought I saw a putty kat, I did)

SHUT UP KID!!

This is a new dance so shake your butt

And get a load of what its like to be doing Skat Strut

Now Jack was nimble and Jack was quick

But it was Skat Kat that made Jack trip

I burned him on the butt with a flick of my bic

And then I cold ran away with the candle stick

I’ve got all the right moves

Ladies think I’m Loveable

Love to wine and dine sippin’ on bubble

But most of all, I like dancing y’all

And doing my Skat Strut from wall to wall

It’s as simple as it gets, just stick out your neck

Lift up your leg and step to the left

Now shake a little as you groove to the beat

–Bend over, shake your big booty

And if you get dizzy from shaking your butt

You must have shook the wrong end cuz you ain’t doing

The Skat Strut (I though I saw a putty kat- I did, I did)

As we go a little something like this– Hit it!!

Without a question, its the strut to fame

I can see myself now on the aisles of “Soul Train”

People want to know if its meant to be silly

I say only when it’s done by Milli and Vanilli

The dance is mine a generation of felines

Mastered this step back in ’69

Return of the Skat Strut a brand new dance

(I thought I) could but you can’t– BUST IT

Homeboy Fatz, Why don’t you step up to the microphone

And give them a little taste of

Your beat box boy—

FATZ: Hey man, I’ve told you

I don’t like nobody telling me what to do

Now I’m a beat-box, but I’m a do-it-my-way

Anybody got something to say?

MC Skat Kat: For those who don’t know me,

My name is Skat

I’m the kat who did the rap in “Opposites Attract”

Me and Paula did a duo and then I went solo

To grab the microphone and make the ladies go

HO!

And now that I’ve got you at my command

Its my sole opportunity to make you dance

I want all four paws on the dance floor

Do that strut until your legs get sore

Come on! Come on! Come on!

Paula Abdul Crazy Love

I had everything I ever wanted in my life

Wasn’t lookin’ for nobody to be satisfied

Wasn’t looking for a honey or a steady girl

‘Til I turned around the corner

And you rocked my world

You was walkin’ down the street

Body boomin’ to the beat

You had everything complete

You was cold- too cold

And the funky things you said

Was like music to my head

And you turnded around and said

Baby let’s go

You’re so sexual…(sexual)

So intellectual…(so incrediable) so emotional (emotional)

You have everything I want…

Everything I need

[Chorus:]

Upside down you’re turning me

Ooh it’s an emergency

Could it be I’m fallin’ for your crazy love (Crazy Love)

I want your body next to me

Ooh with such an urgency

Could it be I’m fallin’ for your crazy love

I hear everybody talkin’

That your mind ain’t right

And my friends say I gone crazy girl but that’s alright

Cuz the things we do together

They mean so much more

Boy you got me feeling things

I’ve never felt before

You’re so sexual…(Sexual)

So intellectual…(So Incrediable) so incrediable (Emotional)

You have everything I want…

[Chorus x2:]

Upside down you’re turning me

Ooh it’s an emergency

Could it be I’m fallin’ for your crazy love (Crazy Love)

I want your body next to me

Ooh with such an urgency

Could it be I’m fallin’ for your crazy love

Do you know what you want baby ?

Do you like what you see ?

Mmmm, Do you wanna have some fun with me ?

I can give you just a little taste

Just a little bit

I can give it all to you

Can you handle it- Huh!

Let me have it all, yes

Paula Abdul I Never Knew It

Now you tell me since you’ve been away

There was something you’ve been dying to say

Yes, I thought you had eyes for me

But I never was quite sure

Mighty funny that you never called

Ain’t it funny now that you’re gone

That you say you’re in love with me

Now that’s hard for me to believe

Cause I never knew it baby, never knew it baby

I never knew it baby, never knew it baby

That you loved me so

Now I think about you every night

Said you wanted for us to have fun

What’s the matter, cat got your tongue

It’s not easy to read your mind

So you bet not take too long

Kind of silly just holding the phone

Ain’t it silly that I’m all alone

When you should be here holding me

Or making good love baby, oh so sweet

[Chorus]

I knew somebody would love me

And satisfy this heart of mine

You never should keep it from me

You gotta realize a girl would cry and loose her mind…

[Chorus]

Paula Abdul Next To You

When we met

The sparkle in your eyes

Showed me that

We were meant to be

In love

Sharing our fantasies

You touched me

Then we kissed

I could not believe

That love was so strong

It didn’t take too long

To learn

Love will go on and on

Love’s an everlasting bond

When I’m next to you

Our love flows through

I can’t explain

What you do

When I’m next to you

I feel brand new

I love you for

All the things you do

Can’t deny

The feelings deep inside

Our hearts and minds

Love is alive

It’s true

I’m so into you

I love you

When I’m next to you

Our love flows through

I can’t explain

What you do

When I’m next to you

I feel brand new

I love you for

All the things you do

You know when I’m all alone

And you’re so far away

I wish that you were here

Holding me

And I find myself thinking

Of how it would be

Knowing you’re with me

I love the way I feel

When I look into your eyes

I love you baby

I love the way I feel

When I’m standing by your side

And I want you, baby, I need you

When I’m next to you

Our love flows through

I can’t explain

What you do

When I’m next to you

I feel brand new

I love you for

All the things you do
