Billy Ocean - Syncopation Lyrics




Syncopation. Syncopation.

Oh, I miss that syncopation.
I guess I'll never really understand.
She gave no indication
that she was loving any other man.

When she holds me
her body does strange things to mine.
When she loves me
then I know she's one of a kind.

She's really special.
She knows what good love is all about.
Ooh, yeah.
She's got something
I don't want to live without.
Ooh, yeah.

I miss that syncopation.
I guess I'll never really understand.
She gave no indication
that she was loving any other man.

I can't imagine
my baby with somebody new.
Oh, no, no. I'm so confused
that I don't know what to do.

Ooh, ee.
I took love for granted,
and now I'm left here all alone.
Alone and crying.
You're all I'm wanting
so girl won't you come back home?

Ooh, I miss that syncopation.
I guess I'll never really understand.
She gave no indication
that she was loving any other man.

Ooh, I miss that syncopation.
I guess I'll never really understand.
She gave no indication
that she was loving any other man.

You see I never had a lover
who could make me over like this, like this.
And there'll never be another
who could take me over like this, like this.

Ooh, how I miss that syncopation.
Baby's found another.
Baby's found another.
She's found another lover.
Ooh my baby.
Woo.

Ooh, how I miss that syncopation.
Baby's found another.
Baby's found another.
She's found another lover.
Ooh my baby.
Woo.

Ooh, I miss that syncopation.
I guess I'll never really understand.
She gave no indication
that she was loving any other man.

Baby come back 'cause I
miss your syncopation.
Baby come back 'cause I
miss your syncopation.

Baby, why'd you go?

Baby come back 'cause I
miss your syncopation.
Baby come back 'cause I...

I'm really missing your love!

Baby come back 'cause I
miss your syncopation.
Baby come back 'cause I
miss your syncopation.

M' m' m' my baby.

  32. Joe Ireri

    Superb !!

  33. mrhoffame

    This was Billy's jam that just never hit the charts very high.  Total gem of a song kind of hidden on this album behind the bigger hits.  This and Mystery Lady.

    Omg...the way he holds he word "home" at 2:14!!  Vintage Billy right there :)

    Keven Woods

    mrhoffame you right man that whole album was good this song was a gem alone with mystery lady ,both never got strong radio play , both songs smooth from start to finish

    Monica Najera

    Bad jam💕

    Collectorofstuff

    Just watched your comments about this song on your Deep Cuts video and came directly here! Good stuff!

    sl1893sa

    This song has a classic feel to it- really, it should've been a huge hit. The chorus is catchy, the bridge is well-developed, and the overall structure is amazing.

    Deborah Norris

    mrhoffame , believe, The Ladies Knew It was Great! 😉 He’s singing to us and we felt that shsssshhaatttt! 🥰

  34. landyachtfan79
