Lyrics

[Verse 1] Listen to me, baby I'm trying to make you see That I want to be with you, girl If you want to be with me [Chorus] But if you gotta go It's all right But if you gotta go, go now Or else you gotta stay all night [Verse 2] I am just a poor boy, baby Trying to connect But I don't want you thinking Oh, that I ain't got any respect [Chorus] But if you gotta go It's alright But if you gotta go, go now Or else you gotta stay all night [Verse 3] Now I'm not trying to question you To take part in any quiz It's just that I don't have a watch And you keep asking me what time it is [Chorus] But if you gotta go Well, it's alright But if you gotta go, go now Or else you gotta stay all night [Verse 4] Now I don't want to make you give Anything you never gave before It's just that I'll be sleeping soon It'll be too dark for you to find the door [Chorus] But if you gotta go Well, it's alright Well, if you gotta go, go now Or else you gotta stay all night
