Mariah carey - One night

Don't you know that life is sweet
It swiftly goes, so I just gotta know
That it's more than lust (so in love)
That you're worth my trust (so in love)
You gotta search inside yourself and purely open up to me

Before I'll be with you, you
You gotta give me something sacred
More than merely physical (so in love)
One night's not enough
Gotta be certain I'm so in love with you, you

It's just another Saturday evening
He's watching all the girls go by
He finds your body kind of appealing
So he hits you with his favorite line, yes
He's looking you over
He whispers, "Let's get to know each other better, baby"
He's moving in closer
But what you see may not be the entirety, so be wary

He's just out for the one night (hey)
He just wants you 'til he gets his way now, baby-baby
So don't gamble with your life
It don't pay (no)
No, no, no, no
(No) No, no, no, no

You see her standing there on the corner
Sashaying as the cars go by
You casually look over your shoulder
As she winks at you and bats her eyes, yes
You're thinking about it
Your conscience tells you to go
But something's in the way now
The prospect's arousing
You think just this once can't hurt none
But you might have another thing coming

You're just out for a good time, baby (yeah, oh yeah)
So later you'll forget her name now, baby-baby (yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah)
So don't gamble with your life (no, no)
It don't pay (no)
No, no
Don't-don't (no), no it surely don't, hey
Woo, ohh
Just a little advice now, baby baby
Said you better think twice, now

You're just out for the one night
But it's more than just a little game now, baby-baby
(It's more, more, yeah, yeah)
So don't gamble with your life (oh, no, no)
It don't pay

Yeah, yeah, no, no, no, no (it don't pay)
Don't pay (it don't pay)
No, no, no, no, (oh), no it don't (it don't pay)
Woo, oh, no, it don't, no, it don't (it don't pay)
No, it don't, baby
Oh, yeah (it don't pay, no)
Oh, yeah-yeah (it don't pay)
(No, no) Yeah, yeah
(It don't pay) Yeah, yeah
(It don't pay)
