MAIN MAN

You’re my main man, when you call my heart goes sailin’
My feet refuse to touch the ground when you come around
You’re my main man, that’s what the neighborhood’s been sayin’
Even Mother knows your name
I’ll take your love and never be the same

Oh, you’re my main man
I am your only woman
Oh, you’re my main man
Forever

You’re my main man, paid the gypsy to keep prayin’
I’ll keep a candle lit for love
And watch the street for you from up above

Oh, you’re my main man
I am your only woman
Oh, you’re my main man
Forever....

You’re my main man, when you call my heart goes sailin’
I’ll keep a candle lit for love
And watch the street for you from up above

Oh, you’re my main man
I am your only woman
Oh, you’re my main man
And I am your only woman
Oh, you’re my main man
And I am your only woman
Baby, you’re my main man
Oh, you’re my main man....

GIVE OUR LOVE A FIGHTIN’ CHANCE

So you wanna throw our love away
So you think we ought-a say goodbye
And you tell me we’ve run out-a time
Can’t make a heart skip on a dime

You could always walk away
Like you never saw my face if you wanted to
You could tell yourself a lie
Say this love ain’t worth a try
But you know that isn’t true
Your heart is tellin’ you

Whoa… we gotta take a stand
Give our love a fightin’ chance
We can talk it over baby, woman to man
Give our love a fightin’ chance
A fightin’ chance

So you think you’ll wish it all away
Click your heels and leave it all behind
But you don’t know that in the real world
You gotta fight to keep love alive

There’s a battle to be won
And if both our hearts are strong we can make it through
So don’t turn your back and run
‘Cause your heart’s under the gun
It’s a case of do or die
Break down the walls of pride

Whoa… we gotta take a stand
Give our love a fightin’ chance
We can talk it over baby, woman to man
Give our love a fightin’ chance....

There’s a battle to be won
And if both our hearts are strong we can make it through
You could tell yourself a lie
Say this love ain’t worth a try
But you know that isn’t true
Your heart is tellin’ you

Whoa… we gotta take a stand
Give our love a fightin’ chance
We can talk it over baby, woman to man
Give our love a fightin’ chance

Whoa… we gotta take a stand
Give our love a fightin’ chance
We can talk it over baby, woman to man
Give our love a fightin’ chance
Give our love a fightin’ chance
Give our love a fightin’ chance....

PERFECTION

Bonnie: Hush little baby, gotta be strong
‘Cause in this world we are born to fight…
Darlene: Be the best, prove them wrong
A winner’s work is never done…

Both: Reach the top number one Perfection...

Cher: Oh, perfection
You drive me crazy with perfection
I’ve worn my pride as my perfection
Bonnie:A winner’s work is never done
Perfection… oh!

I was taught to be tough
That the best that you can be ain’t enough
Crack the whip, sacrifice
But I found out paradise had a price

I didn’t know it then, but oh I know it now
You gotta work as hard at love to make the love work out
You know this heart of mine has made some big mistakes
I guess that when it comes to love
I just don’t know what it takes

All my life I’ve been driven by perfection
Pushed it to the limit every day and night
Whoa… I’ve been driven by perfection
But nothin’s perfect when love ain’t right
Nothin’s perfect when love ain’t right…

Gave it all, played my part
I gave everything I had but my heart
Worked so hard, made a name
But the loneliness inside stays the same

When love is here to today and then it’s gone today
You got a list of lovers lookin’ like a resume
You gotta take some times to make it something real
I guess that when it comes to love
I just don’t know how to feel

All my life I’ve been driven by perfection
Pushed it to the limit every day and night
Whoa… I’ve been driven by perfection
But nothin’s perfect when love ain’t right
Nothin’s perfect when the love ain’t right…

Oh, perfection
You drive me crazy with perfection
I’ve worn my pride as my protection
I’m goin’ crazy with perfection....

I didn’t know it then, but oh I know it now
You gotta work as hard at love to make the love work out
You know this heart of mine has made some big mistakes
I guess that when it comes to love
I just don’t know what it takes...

All my life I’ve been driven by perfection
Pushed it to the limit every day and night
Whoa… I’ve been driven by perfection
But nothin’s perfect when love ain’t right

All my life I’ve been driven by perfection
Pushed it to the limit every day and night
Whoa… I’ve been driven by perfection
But nothin’s perfect when love ain’t right

WORKING GIRL

Oh, she’s a working girl

Come Monday morning
You see her waitin’ on the street for her ride
In an hour she’ll be working
In a tower made of steel in the sky

She’s just a pawn in the struggle
In a never-ending fight to survive
Mama had to play someone else’s game
You learn to keep it inside

(working girl)
She’s a working girl livin’ in a man’s world
(working girl)
You gotta take a stand, girl (yeah)

The boss checks out her body
She’s on the telephone tellin’ his lies
Run and get the coffee
And a smile hides the rage in her eyes

Tonight she’s searching for a reason
As she’s walking home alone in the rain
Mama had to play someone else’s game
Someday she’s breakin’ the chain

(working girl)
She’s a working girl livin’ in a man’s world
(working girl)
You gotta take a stand, girl (yeah) …

Nobody knows the dreams she dares to dream
The plans she had made
Or the times she has prayed inside
Or what tears at her pride

(working girl)
Livin’ in a man’s world
(working girl)
She’s a working girl livin’ in a man’s world
(working girl)
She’s a working girl, you gotta take a stand, girl

(working girl) (she’s a working girl) (livin’ in a man’s world)
(working girl) (she’s a working girl) (gotta take a stand, girl)

(working girl)
She’s a working girl livin’ in a man’s world
(working girl)
She’s a working girl, you gotta take a stand, girl
(repeat and fade)
