Lyrics adapted from the band's YouTube channel.[6]

I ain't trying to talk for ya
But I know just what you need
If you'll let me, I'll show ya
That you're the one, the one for me
Pull you in the middle
A little by little
And I'll hold you close to me
I'm not sentimental
But I can't let you go
Baby, you're one of a kind
I’m-a give you all my time
Even if it takes all night
All night

PRE-CHORUS:
Baby, I’m-a work, work, work for it
I'm-a work for it
Gettin' down and dirty, 'cause I work for it
I'm-a work for it, ooh

CHORUS:
You're the one I really want
I really want to hear you say it
Say yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah
You're the one I really want
I really want to hear you say it
Baby, I'm-a work for it

The way that you're movin'
Has got my head spinnin'
I'm in it
The minute you step in the room
Body to body
You know I'm about it
You got it
The baddest head I ever knew

You shine like you're in the spotlight
And you got me tongue-tied
When I look in your eyes
One look, and that's all that it took
I'm addicted, I'm hooked
Got me, got me so good
Baby, you're one of a kind
I’m-a give you all my time
Even if it takes all night
All night

PRE-CHORUS

CHORUS

In the morning, in the night
You can bet I do it right
'Cause I'm often qualified
I'm-a work for it
I won’t quit it 'til it's done
'Cause you're worth it, yeah

PRE-CHORUS

CHORUS
