Baby You've got What it Takes

Baby You've got What it Takes

Brook Benton

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

You know it takes a lot of kissin'
Spoken: (Tell me about it) to make a romance sweet
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

I said, mm, mm, mm. uh-huh, mm, mm, mm
Ah, ah, hah mm, mm

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"

Spoken: "Oh, yeah"
And baby, you've got what it takes

Ah, ah, hah mm, mm, uh-huh, mm, mm, mm
Mmm

You know you've got just what it takes
Because it takes oh yeah
Spoken: **" You're back in my spot again, honey"**

Spoken:**"I like your spot"**
To stay away from you

Spoken: "I can't stay away from you"
It takes more than a lifetime, daddy, to prove that I'll be true
Spoken: "Now it's you"

But, it takes somebody special Spoken: "Like me, baby to make me say, "I do"
And baby you've got what it takes

Spoken: "see'mon, let's play it again, huh?"
Spoken: "see'mon, let's do it one more time, all right?"
And baby you've got what it takes
Spoken: "One more time, Brook"

Spoken: "Ah-ha, OK, Ah-ha"
And baby you've got what it takes
