Song Meaning
Verse 1
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
Verse 2
You know it takes a lot of kissin'
(Tell me about it)
To make a romance sweet
Ooh, it takes a lot of lovin' to make my life complete
Verse 3
Mmm, and it takes a lot of woman to knock me off my feet
And baby, you've got what it takes.
Verse 4
I said, mm, mm, mm. uh-huh, mm, mm, mm
Ah, ah, hah mm, mm
Verse 5
You know you've got just what it takes!
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."
Verse 6
"Oh, yeah"
And baby, you've got what it takes.
Ah, ah, hah mm, mm, uh-huh, mm, mm, mm
Mmm
Verse 7
You know you've got just what it takes
Because it takes oh yeah
"You're back in my spot again, honey"
Verse 8
"I like your spot"**
To stay away from you
Verse 9
"I can't stay away from you"
It takes more than a lifetime, daddy, to prove that I'll be true
"Now it's you"
Verse 10
But, it takes somebody special
"Like me, baby"
To make me say, "I do."
And baby you've got what it takes
Verse 11
"See'mon, let's play it again, huh?"
"See'mon, let's do it one more time, all right?"
And baby you've got what it takes
"One more time, Brook"
Verse 12
"Ah-ha, OK, Ah-ha"
And baby you've got what it takes
