Houston, Whitney - Things You Say Lyrics

Oh baby oh baby yeah yeah yeah
Such a pleasure loving you
It's all mine

I feel better knowing you
Ooh you've got me thinking
It's better to give and take
I don't have to beg you too
You're so good to me
Carries me from day to day
I appreciate the things you do
Ooh but there's one thing I had to tell you boy
I dig your actions
But a lot of things you say

I listen to the things you say
Who you're calling me oh oh
I listen to the things you say
To me baby
In a poem on a card
Serenade my heart
I listen to the things you say
Who you're calling me oh oh
I listen to the things you say
To me baby
In a card of a song
Say my name please

Lovely letters come at times I know I don't deserve it
Any weather you'll come through
Ooh you've got me gleaming
I feel more than I worth
You're my treasure
I'll take you
Over anything
That's pleasing on this earth
I appreciate the things you do
But there's one thing I had to tell you boy
I dig your actions
But I love your words


Every word that you say
Makes a day much brighter
Melody that you play
I hear by the way and the love is lighter
Speak to me

    This should have been a single, for its cross-genre worthy (R&B/Neo-Soul). Its my favorite from the album.

    I like the song, but be honest. When your background singers sound better than you, it tells something. She doesn’t feel this at all, it’s just delivering.

    Eugene Davis

    Josh P it’s her vocals on the background as well man... it’s all her . Lol nobody can do it better than Nippy.

    Josh P

    Eugene Davis, I apologize if I am mistaken. I have every Whitney album and almost every single, some still shrink-wrapped, because the Japanese or overseas versions had more. I need to pull out Just Whitney to see who sang the backgrounds.

    Late Nights In The City

    Eugene Davis read the video description

    Shell Stewart

    Her vocals and Tweet's are nice.....this is supposed to be just smooth.....not over powering
