Whitney Houston Lyrics


Jump to: Overall Meaning ↴  Line by Line Meaning ↴

From the moment I saw you, I went outta my mind
I never believed in love at first sight
But you got a magic, boy, that I just can't explain
Well, you got a, you got a way that you make me feel
I can do, I can do anything for you, baby

I'll be down for you, baby
Lay all my cards out tonight
Just call on me, baby
I'll be there in a hurry
It's your move, so baby, baby decide

Whatever you want from me
I'm givin' you everything
I'm your baby tonight
You've given me ecstasy
You are my fantasy
I'm your baby tonight

From the second you touched me
I was ready to die
I've never been fatal, you're my first time

I feel like an angel who just started to fly
Well, you got a, you got a way that you make a me
Feel I can, feel I can, do anything for you baby
I will fly for you baby
Hold on and enjoy the ride
I'm not in no hurry
We can fly all night, baby
It's your move, now baby, baby let's fly

Whatever you want from me
I'm givin' you everything
I'm your baby tonight
You've given me ecstasy
You are my fantasy
I'm your baby tonight

Whatever you want from me
I'm givin' you everything
I'm your baby tonight
You've given me ecstasy
You are my fantasy
I'm your baby tonight

Whatever I do, boy
It's all about you, baby
And ain't the truth, boy
I'm helplessly in love with you
What else can I do, boy
But be there for you, baby
You got a, you got a way that you make a me
Feel I can, feel I can do any, do anything

Whatever you want from me
I'm givin' you everything
I'm your baby tonight
You've given me ecstasy
You are my fantasy
I'm your baby tonight

Whatever you want from me
I'm givin' you everything
I'm your baby tonight
You've given me ecstasy
You are my fantasy
I'm your baby tonight

Looks like I'm fatal, it's all on the table
And baby you hold the cards
You got the magic and I've got to have it
I don't want the pieces, I want every single part
I'll be your angel, I'm ready and able whatever you want is fine
Whenever you're ready, just call on your lady and I'll be your baby tonight

I'm your baby tonight, I'm your baby tonight

Whatever you want from me
I'm givin' you everything
I'm your baby tonight
You've given me ecstasy
You are my fantasy
I'm your baby tonight

Whatever you want from me
I'm givin' you everything
I'm your baby tonight
You've given me ecstasy
You are my fantasy

Whatever you want from me
I'm givin' you everything
I'm your baby tonight
You've given me ecstasy

@@tangled55 IT ISN'T AN EASY SONG TO SING BECAUSE YOU SAY IT ISN'T.WHY SHOULD I JUST GO WITH THAT.HOW DO YOU KNOW HOW HARD THIS SONG IS TO SING.ARE YOU NOW A MUSICOLOGIST OR A VOCAL TEACHER.UHH NO YOU'RE NOT.BUT EVEN SO,THERE HAS STILL BEEN MANY SINGERS WHO HAVE MADE A RECORD IN ONE TAKE.HERE'S A FEW YOU MIGHT HAVE HEARD OF
1.TUPAC-HAIL MARY
2.THE BEATLES-TWIST AND SHOUT
3.KIM CARNES-BETTE DAVIS EYES
4.ELVIS PRESLEY-THAT'S ALL RIGHT MAMA
5.EMINEM-LOSE YOURSELF
6.AND MY FAVORITE,FUNKADELIC-MAGGOT BRAIN
AND MANY MANY MORE.
NOW IF YOU KNOW MUSIC,YOU KNOW HOW LONG MAGGOT BRAIN IS AND IF YOU DON'T,IT'S OVER 10 MINUTES LONG.NOW I WOULD THINK THAT WOULD HARDER TO PULL OFF THAN WHITNEY HOUSTON SINGING I'M YOUR BABY TONIGHT.BUT HEY LISTEN I NEVER MEANT TO GET INTO A DEBATE AND CERTAINLY NOT AN ARGUMENT OVER YOUR AND MY COMMENT.I WAS ONLY SAYING IT'S NOT THAT UNUSUAL TO DO A SONG IN ONE TAKE.
