“The Beautiful Ones”

baby, baby, baby
what’s it gonna be
baby, baby, baby
is it him or is it me?
don’t make me waste my time
don’t make me lose my mind baby

baby, baby, baby
can’t u stay with me tonight
oh baby, baby, baby
don’t my kisses please u right
U were so hard 2 find
the beautiful ones, they hurt u everytime

paint a perfect picture
bring 2 life a vision in one’s mind
the beautiful ones
always smash the picture
always everytime

if I told u baby
that I was in love with u
oh baby, baby, baby
if we got married
would that be cool?

U make me so confused
the beautiful ones
U always seem 2 lose

baby, baby,
baby, baby,
baby, baby,
what’s it gonna be baby?

do u want him?
or do u want me?
cause I want u
said I want u
tell me, babe
do u want me?
i gotta know, i gotta know
do u want me?
baby, baby, baby

listen 2 me
i may not know where I’m going (babe)
i said I may not know what I need
one thing, one thing’s 4 certain baby
i know what I want, yeah
& if it please u baby
please u, baby
i’m begging down on my knees
i want u
yes I do
baby, baby, baby, baby
i want you

yes I do
