Human Nature
Human Nature

(Steve Porcaro and John Bettis)

1st Verse
Looking out
Across the nighttime
The city winks a sleepless eye
Hear her voice
Shake my window
Sweet seducing sighs

2nd Verse
Get me out
Into the nighttime
Four walls won’t hold me tonight
If this town
Is just an apple
Then let me take a bite

Chorus
If they say
Why, why, tell ’em that it’s human nature
Why, why, does he do me that way
If they say-
Why, why, tell ’em that it’s human nature
Why, why, does he do me that way

3rd Verse
Reaching out
To touch a stranger
Electric eyes are ev’rywhere
See that girl
She knows I’m watching
She likes the way I stare

Chorus
If they say-
Why, why, tell ’em that it’s human nature
Why, why, does he do me that way
If they say-
Why, why, tell ’em that it’s human nature
Why, why, does he do me that way
I like lovin’ this way
I like lovin’ this way

(Instrumental Section)

4th Verse
Looking out
Across the morning
Where the city’s heart begins to beat
Reaching out
I touch her shoulder
I’m dreaming of the street
