Gimme the Word

Boy: Like a rubber band wound too tight
Streched to the limit, that’s what it’s like
If you’ve been sittin’ back seein’ just how much I can take
This is it, I’m about to break

Girl: Don’t rush me honey, that’s not the way
You gotta be patient if you want me to play
Boy: Like a runner waitin’ for a gun
Anticipation’s got me all undone

Boy: Gimme the word, you know I got to hear it
Girl:Gimme the word, gimme the word, gimme the
Gimme the word, you know I got to hear it
Gimme the green light, tonight

Girl: Spell it out, you know I want to–ooh, ooh....

Girl: Easy come and easy go
I really like you so I’m takin’ it slow
I made up my mind from the moment we met
Only way to you was to play hard to get

Boy: When an irresistible force meets an immovable mountain
Something’s got to give
Something’s got to give
Something’s got to give

Girl: I’ve gotta be sure in the cold light of day
You still want to know me and you just won’t walk away

Boy: Gimme the word, you know I got to hear it
Girl:Gimme the word, gimme the word, gimme the
Gimme the word, you know I got to hear it
Gimme the green light, tonight

Girl: Spell it out, you know I want to–ooh, ooh....

Boy: Gimme the word, you know I got to hear it
Girl:Gimme the word, gimme the word, gimme the
Gimme the word, you know I got to hear it
Gimme the green light, tonight

Girl: Spell it out, you know I want to–ooh, ooh....
