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 NEVER HAD IT SO GOOD,
NEVER HAD IT SO GOOD
BEFORE.
NEVER HAD IT SO GOOD,
NEVER HAD IT SO GOOD
BEFORE.

ONLY ONCE IN A LIFETIME
THE RIGHT GIRL COMES ALONG.
WHEN YOU FIND HER
YOUD BETTER HOLD ON.
COULD I LEAVE MY BABY?
NO,
I DONT THINK I COULD,
BECAUSE:

I NEVER HAD IT SO GOOD,
I NEVER HAD IT SO GOOD
BEFORE.

IM ALWAYS SO PROUD
TO TAKE HER OUT,
AND WHEN IM AROUND THE GUYS,
SHES ALL I TALK ABOUT.
AND SHE TREATS ME,
OH,
JUST LIKE SHE SHOULD,
AND I:

NEVER HAD IT SO GOOD,
NEVER HAD IT SO GOOD
BEFORE.

NOW I WANT TO
TELL THE WORLD
ABOUT MY GIRL
SHE IS LIKE THE RAIN
THAT MAKES A FLOWER GROW,
THATS WHY
I LOVE HER SO.
SHE PLEASES ME
IN EVERY WAY,
I MEAN WHAT I SAY:

NEVER HAD IT SO GOOD,
NEVER HAD IT SO GOOD BEFORE.
NEVER HAD IT SO GOOD,
NEVER HAD IT SO GOOD
BEFORE.

SHE MAKES ME FORGET
ABOUT THE BAD TIMES,
MY HEARTACHES
AND CARES,
THEY ARE ALL LEFT BEHIND.
COULD I LEAVE MY BABY?
NO,
I DONT THINK I COULD
BECAUSE I:

NEVER HAD IT SO GOOD,
NEVER HAD IT SO GOOD
BEFORE.
NEVER HAD IT SO GOOD,
NEVER HAD IT SO GOOD
BEFORE.
NEVER HAD IT SO GOOD,
NEVER HAD IT SO GOOD
BEFORE.
NEVER HAD IT SO GOOD,
NEVER HAD IT SO GOOD
BEFORE.

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!
