Lyrics

(Musixmatch)

I got chills, they’re multiplying

And I’m losing control

‘Cause the power you’re supplying

It’s electrifying You better shape up

‘Cause I need a man

And my heart is set on you

You better shape up

You better understand

To my heart I must be true

Nothin’ left, nothin’ left for me to do You’re the one that I want (you are the one I want)

Ooh, ooh, ooh, honey

The one that I want (you are the one I want)

Ooh, ooh, ooh, honey

The one that I want (you are the one I want)

Ooh, ooh, ooh

The one I need (the one I need)

Oh, yes indeed (yes, indeed) If you’re filled with affection

You’re too shy to convey

Meditate in my direction

Feel your way I better shape up

‘Cause you need a man

I need a man

Who can keep me satisfied

I better shape up

If I’m gonna prove

You better prove

That my faith is justified

Are you sure?

Yes, I’m sure down deep inside You’re the one that I want (you are the one I want)

Ooh, ooh, ooh, honey

The one that I want (you are the one I want)

Ooh, ooh, ooh, honey

The one that I want (you are the one I want)

Ooh, ooh, ooh

The one I need (the one I need)

Oh, yes indeed (yes, indeed) You’re the one that I want (you are the one I want)

Ooh, ooh, ooh, honey

The one that I want (you are the one I want)

Ooh, ooh, ooh, honey

The one that I want (you are the one I want)

Ooh ooh, ooh

The one I need (the one I need)

Oh, yes indeed (yes, indeed) ooh, ooh You’re the one that I want (you are the one I want)

Ooh, ooh, ooh, honey

The one that I want (you are the one I want)

Ooh, ooh, ooh, honey

The one that I want (you are the one I want)

Ooh, ooh, ooh

The one I need (the one I need)

Oh, yes indeed (yes, indeed) You’re the one that I want (you are the one I want)

Ooh, ooh, ooh, honey

The one that I want.
