P.Y.T. (Pretty Young Thing)

(James Ingram and Quincy Jones)

1st Verse
Where did you come from lady
And ooh won’t you take me there
Right away won’t you baby
Tenderoni you’ve got to be
Spark my nature
Sugar fly with me

Don’t you know now
Is the perfect time
We can make it right
Hit the city lights
Then tonight ease the lovin’ pain
Let me take you to the max

Chorus
I wanna love you (P.Y.T.)
Pretty young thing
You need some lovin’ (T.L.C.)
And I’ll take you there

I wanna love you (P.Y.T.)
Pretty young thing
You need some lovin’ (T.L.C.)
Tender lovin’ care
I’ll take you there

Background Group
Anywhere you wanna go

2nd Verse
Nothin’ can stop this burnin’
Desire to be with you
Gotta get to you baby
Won’t you come, it’s emergency
Cool my fire yearnin’
Honey, come set me free

Don’t you know now is the perfect time
We can dim the lights
Just to make it right
In the night
Hit the lovin’ spot
I’ll give you all I’ve got

Chorus
I wanna love you (P.Y.T.)
Pretty young thing
You need some lovin’ (T.L.C.)
Tender lovin’ care
And I’ll take you there

I wanna love you (P.Y.T.)
Pretty young thing
You need some lovin’ (T.L.C.)
Tender lovin’ care
And I’ll take you there

I wanna love you (P.Y.T.)
Pretty young thing
You need some lovin’ (T.L.C.)
And I’ll take you there
