Lyrics

[Intro] [Verse 1 : Brook Benton, Dinah Washington] Well now, it takes more than a robin to make the winter go And it takes two lips of fire to melt away the snow Well, it takes two hearts a-cookin' to make a fire grow And baby, you've got what it takes (yeah) [Verse 2 : Dinah Washington, Brook Benton] You know it takes a lot of kissin' (Tell me about it) To make a romance sweet (uh huh) Ooh, it takes a lot of lovin' to make my life complete Mmm, and it takes a lot of woman to knock me off my feet And baby, you've got what it takes [Bridge: Dinah Washington and Brook Benton] I said, mmm, mmm, mmm Uh huh, mmm You know you've got just what it takes [Verse 3: Brook Benton, Dinah Washington] Because it takes more than an effort to stay away from you It'd take more than a lifetime to prove that I'll be true But it takes somebody special to make me say, "I do" (yeah) And baby, you've got what it takes [Bridge : Dinah Washington and Brook Benton] Ah, ah, hah mmm, mmm, mmm Mmm You know you've got just what it takes [Verse 4 and Tag: Dinah Washington and Brook Benton] Because it takes, (yeah, oh yeah) (You're back in my spot again, honey) (I like your spot) To stay away from you (I can't stay away from her) It takes more than a lifetime, daddy To prove that I'll be true (Now it's you) But it takes somebody special (Like me, baby) To make me say, "I do" And baby, you've got what it takes (Ha, ha, say it again, huh?) (C'mon, let's do it one more time, all right?) And baby, you've got what it takes (One more time, Brook) (Ah-ha, alright okay, ah-ha) And baby, you've got what it takes
