The Right Thing

In the middle of the night, when the time is right
Sex­ily right, I’m gonna do the right thing
Gonna move you slow, much harder though
Sex­ily so, I’m gonna do the right thing
Feel­in’ hot, I ain’t nev­er gonna stop
To get what you got, you bet­ter take what I bring
Feel it now, much harder now
More than any old how, say you feel the pain

Feel I’m get­ting harder now, get off your back four
Get on top more owww!
Feel I’m sink­ing farther down, get off your back four
Get on top more

I told you to stop, “You’re sleep­ing out a lot”
You told me get lost, where’s your under­stand­ing
I feel it now much harder than I’ve ever done now
I’d bet­ter do the right thing

I’m gonna do the right thing
I’m gonna do the right thing

Feel I’m get­ting harder now, get off your back four
Get on top more owww!
Feel I’m sink­ing farther down, get off your back four
Get on top more

In the middle of the night, when the time is right
Sex­ily right, I’m gonna do the right thing
Gonna move you slow, much harder than I’ve ever done now
I’m gonna do the right thing

I’m gonna do the right thing
I’m gonna do the right thing

I’m on fire
I’m on fire
You know I told you that I would nev­er dream of leav­ing
If I did it right
I’m gonna do the right thing
