Well, now, it takes more than a robin to make the winter go
And it takes two lips of fire to melt away the snow
Well, it takes two hearts a-cookin' to make a fire grow
And baby you've got what it takes
You know it takes a lot of kissin'
SPOKEN (Tell me about it)
to make a romance sweet
Ooh, it takes a lot of lovin' to make my life complete
Mmm, and it takes a lot of woman to knock me off my feet
and baby, you've got what it takes.
I said,
mm, mm, mm. uh-huh, mm, mm, mm
Ah, ah, hah
mm, mm
You know you've got just what it takes!
Because it takes more than an effort to stay away from you
It'd take more than a lifetime to prove that I'll be true
But it takes somebody special to make me say, "I do."
SPOKEN "Oh, yeah"
And baby, you've got what it takes.
Ah, ah, hah
mm, mm, uh-huh, mm, mm, mm
Mmm
You know you've got just what it takes
Because it takes oh yeah
SPOKEN **" You're back in my spot again, honey"**
SPOKEN **"I like your spot"**
To stay away from you
SPOKEN "I can't stay away from you"
It takes more than a lifetime, daddy, to prove that I'll be true
SPOKEN "NOW it's you"
But, it takes somebody special
SPOKEN "Like me, baby"
to make me say, "I do."
And baby you've got what it takes
SPOKEN "C'mon, let's play it again, huh?"
SPOKEN "C'mon, let's do it one more time, all right?"
And baby you've got what it takes
SPOKEN "One more time, Brook"
SPOKEN "Ah-ha, OK, Ah-ha"
And baby you've got what it takes
FADE
NOTE: Exchange at ** apparently prompted when Brook jumped into a line that
Dinah was supposed to sing.
