Lyrics I WANT A GUARANTEE,
I WANT A GUARANTEE
THAT YOU'RE REALLY
GOING TO LOVE ME.
I WANT YOU
TO WRITE YOUR NAME,
SIGN IT
ON THE LINE ABOVE,
I WANT A GUARANTEE
BEFORE I GIVE YOU
MY LOVE.
I WANT A GUARANTEE
AND SOME SECURITY
THAT YOU'RE NOT
GOING TO HURT ME.

THERE ARE STEPS
THAT I MUST TAKE
TO PROTECT MYSELF
AGAINST HEARTBREAK
I WANT A GUARANTEE
THAT YOU'RE REALLY
GOING TO LOVE ME.

YOU GOT ME IN LOVE
LIKE NEVER BEFORE,
AND I COULD LOVE YOU
EVEN MORE.
I DO EVERYTHING
THAT YOU WANT ME TO
BUT THERE IS
JUST ONE THING
THAT I ASK OF YOU:
I WANT A GUARANTEE!
GOT TO HAVE
A GUARANTEE.

I WANT A GUARANTEE,
SO IF WE DISAGREE,
THAT YOU WILL NEVER
EVER LEAVE ME.
IT WILL SPECIFY
THAT YOU WILL N EVER
EVER SAY GOODBYE.
I WANT A GUARANTEE
THAT YOU'RE REALLY
GOING TO LOVE ME.

Lyrics IT'S TORTURE,
LIKE AN ITCH
YOU CAN'T SCRATCH,
AND HURTS
LIKE BEING BURNED
WITH A MATCH.
IT'S TORTURE,
BEING CLOSE TO YOU,
AND NOT LOVE YOU
LIKE I WANT TO.

I KNOW YOU WANT ME
LIKE I WANT YOU,
AND AS MUCH
AS I LOVE YOU,
YOU LOVE ME TOO.
YOU KEEP ON PLAYING
THIS WAITING GAME,
MEANTIME,
HONEY,
MY HEART
IS IN PAIN.

BABY,
I'M APPEALING
TO YOUR DEEPEST
FEMININE FEELINGS
GIVE ME LOVE
AND NOT REJECTION,
BABY,
I'M STARVING
FOR YOUR AFFECTION.

IT'S TORTURE,
LIKE AN ITCH
YOU CAN'T SCRATCH,
AND HURTS
LIKE BEING BURNED
WITH A MATCH.
IT'S TORTURE,
BEING CLOSE TO YOU,
AND NOT LOVE YOU
LIKE I WANT TO.

LOVE IS SUPPOSED
TO BE BEAUTIFUL,
WHEN THE FEELING
IS MUTUAL
AND IT'S MUTUAL,
THIS LOVE I KNOW,
SO WHY
MAKE ME SUFFER SO?

BABY,
I'M APPEALING
TO YOUR DEEPEST
FEMININE FEELINGS,
GIVE ME LOVE
AND NOT REJECTION,
BABY,
I'M STARVING
FOR YOUR AFFECTION.

IT'S TORTURE,
LIKE AN ITCH
YOU CAN'T SCRATCH,
AND HURTS
LIKE BEING BURNED
WITH A MATCH.
IT'S TORTURE,
BEING CLOSE TO YOU,
AND NOT LOVE YOU
LIKE I WANT TO.

Lyrics HELP A LITTLE GIRL LOST,
STRANDED IN THE JUNGLE,
HELP A LITTLE GIRL LOST,
GET OUT OF THE JUNGLE.

SOMEHOW I LOST MY MAN,
PLEASE HELP ME FIND HIM
IF YOU CAN.

HELP A LITTLE GIRL LOST,
STRANDED IN THE JUNGLE,
HELP A LITTLE GIRL LOST,
GET OUT OF THE JUNGLE.

LIKE JACK AND JILL,
HAPPY ON A HILL,
HE CAME TO TOWN
JUST LOOKING
FOR A DREAM
NOW WHERE DID HE GO?
IS THERE ANYONE HERE
WHO WOULD KNOW?

HELP A LITTLE GIRL LOST,
STRANDED IN THE JUNGLE,
HELP A LITTLE GIRL LOST,
GET OUT OF THE JUNGLE.

HELP A LITTLE GIRL LOST
WHO HAS LOST EVERYTHING,
HELP A LITTLE GIRL
FIND A WEDDING RING,
OH WHAT HAPPINESS
IT CAN BRING.

HELP A LITTLE GIRL LOST,
STRANDED IN THE JUNGLE,
HELP A LITTLE GIRL LOST,
GET OUT OF THE JUNGLE.

OH, I'M LOST
IN THIS GREAT BIG CITY,
WON'T SOMEBODY HERE
HAVE A LITTLE PITY?
SOMEBODY TAKE MY HAND,
HELP ME FIND MY MAN.

HELP A LITTLE GIRL LOST,
STRANDED IN THE JUNGLE,
HELP A LITTLE GIRL LOST,
GET OUT OF THE JUNGLE.

Lyrics HE'S ALWAYS COMPLAINING
ABOUT THIS AND THAT,
AND WHEN HE GOES OUT
HE FORGETS
TO TAKE OFF HIS HAT.
HE'S NOT THE FANCY KIND
BUT I'M SO GLAD
HE'S MINE,
BECAUSE I LOVE THAT MAN,
LOVE THAT MAN.
SOMETIMES I WAIT FOR HIM
LATE AT NIGHT,
HE NEVER THINKS TO CALL
AND SAY
THAT HE'S ALL RIGHT.
I'M MAD ON THE PHONE
BUT I'M GLAD
WHEN HE COMES HOME
BECAUSE I LOVE THAT MAN,
LOVE THAT MAN.

HE NEVER DOES
WHAT HE'S SUPPOSED TO
WHEN HE OUGHT TO,
LEAST WHEN I EXPECT IT
HE SAYS
HONEY,
LOOK WHAT I BROUGHT YOU.
YOU CAN SEE
WHAT IT MEANS TO ME,
UNDERSTAND
WHY I LOVE THAT MAN,
LOVE THAT MAN.

I GUESS
I COULD NEVER
EVER LET HIM GO,
I TELL HIM
OVER AND OVER
I LOVE HIM SO.
TO ME
HE MEANS THE WORLD
AND I'M HIS GIRL,
BECAUSE I LOVE THAT MAN,
LOVE THAT MAN,
LOVE THAT MAN,
LOVE THAT MAN.

Lyrics ONE IN A MILLION,
A MILLION TO ONE,
MY WILDEST DREAMS
AND EVERY DESIRE
ROLLED INTO ONE.
I ONLY KNOW
I'VE GOT
TO MAKE HIM MINE,
WHATEVER IT TAKES,
I DON'T MIND
I'LL PAY ANY PRICE,
AND I'LL MAKE
ANY SACRIFICE
FOR HIM.
ONE IN A MILLION,
A MILLION TO ONE,
IF THERE IS A BOY
CREATED FOR ME,
THIS IS THE ONE.
AND ANY PART OF ME
HE WANTS TO CHANGE,
I'M HIS TO REARRANGE
ANYTHING
TO MAKE HIM SEE,
HE IS
THE ONE IN A MILLION
FOR ME.

I CAN'T BE WRONG,
I FEEL IT
TOO STRONG,
UNDERNEATH THE SUN,
HE IS THE ONLY ONE
FOR ME.

ONE IN A MILLION,
THAT CERTAIN SMILE,
THAT CERTAIN LOOK
THAT TELLS YOU
ONE KISS
WOULD DRIVE YOU WILD.
AND THAT'S WHY
I'VE GOT
TO MAKE HIM MINE,
WHATEVER IT TAKES,
I DON'T MIND
I'LL PAY ANY PRICE,
AND I'LL MAKE
ANY SACRIFICE
FOR HIM.

HE'S ONE IN A MILLION,
A MILLION TO ONE,
HE'S ONE IN A MILLION,
A MILLION TO ONE.

Lyrics ONE STEP AT A TIME,
BOY,
YOURE MOVING TOO FAST,
BOY.
ONE STEP AT A TIME,
BOY,
YOURE MOVING TOO FAST,
BOY.

IM THE KIND OF GIRL
WHO LIKES TO TAKE IT
SLOW AND EASY.
SO PLEASE BE KIND,
NO MATTER WHAT YOU DO,
JUST TAKE YOUR TIME.
IT DOESNT PAY
TO MOVE TOO FAST,
NOT IF YOU WANT
A LOVE THAT WILL LAST.
SO BABY:

DONT PUSH ME,
SLOW DOWN,
DONT PUSH ME,
WHATS YOUR HURRY?
DONT PUSH ME
ALL YOU GOT TO DO IS:

ONE STEP AT A TIME,
BOY,
ONE STEP AT A TIME,
BOY.

ROME WASNT BUILT IN A DAY,
IT TOOK A LOT
OF PLANNING
SO THEY SAY.
LIKE ROME WAS BUILT
VERY CAREFULLY,
YOU GOT TO DO THE SAME.
IF YOU WANT ME.
IT TOOK A LOT OF TIME
TO MAKE THIS WORLD,
IF YOU WANT ME
TO BE YOUR GIRL,
OH, BABY:

DONT PUSH ME,
SLOW DOWN,
DONT PUSH ME,
WHATS YOUR HURRY?
DONT PUSH ME
ALL YOU GOT TO TAKE IS:

ONE STEP AT A TIME,
BOY,
ONE STEP AT A TIME,
BOY,
ONE STEP AT A TIME,
BOY,
ONE STEP AT A TIME,
BOY,
ONE STEP AT A TIME,
BOY,
ONE STEP AT A TIME,
BOY,
ONE STEP AT A TIME,
BOY,
ONE STEP AT A TIME!

Lyrics WHEN YOU GET
THAT SURE FEELING
THAT THIS IS IT,
YOUR HEART
BEATS FASTER,
IT JUST WON'T QUIT,
WELL IT'S A SURE SIGN
THAT YOU'RE IN LOVE
THIS TIME.
WHENEVER
HE WALKS BY
AND YOUR KNEES
GET WEAK,
YOU WANT TO SAY HI,
BUT YOU
JUST CAN'T SPEAK,
WELL WHEN YOU
ACT LIKE THAT
IT'S AN ABSOLUTE FACT
YOU'RE IN LOVE.

YOU HEAR BELLS,
YOU'RE UNDER A SPELL,
AND HERE COME
THE BUTTERFLIES.
THAT HAPPY FACE
IN THE MIRROR
LOOKS A LITTLE BIT
NEARER
BECAUSE
IT'S IN YOUR EYES.
BECAUSE YOU'RE IN LOVE,
OH YEAH,
YOU'RE IN LOVE.

WHEN YOU GET
THAT STRANGE SENSATION
YOU'RE WALKING ON AIR
AND PEOPLE ARE STARING
BUT YOU DON'T CARE,
WELL HOEY,
THAT RULES OUT
ANY POSSIBLE DOUBT,
YOU'RE IN LOVE,
OH YEAH,
YOU'RE IN LOVE.
