Johnny Gill - Quiet Time To Play Lyrics

I know just what you need
Oooh... oh yeah
Oooh... ooh yeah
Oooh... yeah, yeah, alright
Listen, hush

Hush, don’t say a word
Just come on in, my baby
Your body language explains
it all.
Girl, you need love

It’s been a hard day
for you and me
But now we’re free
Enjoy a summer’s evening

Now the work is over
Let the tension fade
Now it’s a quiet time
for loving, babe

Let me hold you near me
I ain’t too proud to beg
’Cos it’s a quiet time for loving
Yeah, yeah

Hush, grab a special
hold that says I love ya, yeah
I’ll rub it on you girl
and you can rub it all over me
I love that part

No phone, no TV
No company
It’s just you and me
In our own world of ecstacy

Now the work is over
Let the tension fade
Now it’s a quiet time
for loving
Now it’s a quiet time for play

Let me hold you near me
I ain’t too proud to beg
Now it’s a quiet time for loving
Quiet time for play

Oh you play the game so well
Using all my energy
Everytime you hold me close
I know you know what to do
When you did
When you did to me girl

Oh oh oh...
It’s a quiet time to play
Hush, ooh
Don’t say a word
Come on, come on
Hmm, ahh

Do you want me
Ah girl I want you
I can’t keep it quiet baby
’Cos I want you, yeah

Hush, love me, to love me
Let me love you, woah
To love me, to love me
Let me love you, oooh

Hush, let me hold you near me
You’ll never go wrong
in my arms, my arms
Let us get away
We gotta get away

I want you so bad
I can hardly wait
Ohh yeah
Do do do, do do do, babe
I want you so bad I can...
Do do, do do, do do do do...
Do do do...

    one of the greatest voices ever of rnb singers/sangers/crooners....and JG definitely proves it in this track! come on back Johnny!

  53. Follow Love

    Oh yes let the tension fade I ain't to proud to beg


    Mugs was sleep on Johnny!! He really had some cuts 4real!

  55. bgblkb

    I`ve got to cop the Best of Johnny now.He`s what the R&B game`s been missing.

  56. Pelle Sörensson

    I never compare anyone, I just enjoy....

  57. Kee Lah C

    JG does it again! What an exotic song......if this doesn't set the perfect mood for evening after a long day at the office, I don't know what does. Johnny can so take the lead since we lost the late, great LV!! My opinion....

  58. rich g

    johnny gill was a good singer,but he is not in the same class as luther!

  59. K Love

    I will submit this, the key word is soothing and on songs like MY MY MY, and Where Do We Go From Here, Johnny just tries too hard and is all over the place. That is is style. Not smooth or soothing IMHO, but still good. Now if you were to say Will Downing, James Ingram, or Pebo Bryson then I would say yeah cause their styles are smoother and more like Luther IMHO

  60. K Love

    Are you serious? Johnny sings good but Luther was a GREAT singer and had the body of work to back it.

  61. pacmanfever100

    He needs to come back.
    The R&B game needs him.

  62. Chuzy Anyakoha

    great song. I rang this track along marvin gaye-I want U

  63. dimplesdk

    Beautiful song and one of the best male voices ever! Does anyone know if he still sings?

  64. Christopher Bryant

    One of the best singers from the 90's!!!!

  65. Nina Blaze

    Does any one kno the lyrics to this song?? Cant find it anywhere :(

  66. rthominc

    " it's amazing some artist greatest work do
    not become a mainstream hit ". Johnny can't
    do too much better than this!!!

  67. jagirl8

    oh man i forgot about this song it is so beautiful.

  68. Shana

    The Sexiest Song Ever!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    "Hush.....whoo! Don't say a word. Come on, Come on, hush..."

    I love it when he brings it down. That part gets me everytime. Thanks for posting.

  87. Dimitris Mamalis

    JG is THE VOICE!

  88. Kevin D Chase

    I agree but you have to remember there are many things that you can blame the current state of the industry. There is one main thing, however that you can blame: the consumer. If the consumer purchases it, the record companies will make it. It is no longer quality or quantity, and that sucks.

  89. Christopher Crocke

    It is so rediculous how today, if you can actually sing. You do not get the exposure of a true "Talent". The present generation seems to be only fixated with how a person looks, how he/she can shake their ass or gyrate their body. When will we ever get back to artist like Johnny Gill, Toni Braxton, The Jackson's, Bebarge, Lakeside, Earth Wind & fire, New Birth, The Emotions, and anyone that can truly sing. I will admit that Chris Brown is a blessing for this current generation.
