Lyrics[]

I've got something you've got nothing to lose

I can give you so much more than you're used to



move a little closer maybe we can slip away

right now we could use a little privacy

all too much attention from your friends

in here move a little closer

trust me out on the lake

yes and I

if I can pull you over tell me what you'd say



get a grip

don't resist

read my lips

it's a trip

ain't a risk

read my lips

get a grip

don't resist

read my...lips


part of you wanna get lucky

part of you wanna try

part of you wanna go looking

part of you want to stay



(rock it)



get a grip

don't resist

read my lips

it's a trip

ain't a risk

read my lips

get a grip

don't resist

read my...lips



she's all mine

she's all mine

she's all mine

she's all mine

she's all mine, all mine, all mine, all mine, all mine

she's all mine, all mine, all mine, all mine, all mine
