Michael McDonald - If That's What It Takes Lyrics




How do I please you
How do I please you
How do I please you
How do I please you
Girl, in your one way heart
In your one track mind
How do I please you
How do I please you

Oh, when I say that you're the only one
I'm not tryin' to fool you, baby
Well, I'm only here to get the job done
'cause you're so used to getting what you want
Well, look no further, baby

[Chorus:]
If that's what it takes
I don't need to know anymore
Ain't no doubt about it
That's what I came here for

So how do I please you
How do I please you
Girl, in your one way heart
In your one track mind
How do I please you
How do I please you

Well, I don't know much about the life you lead
But it ain't enough just to offer my heart
Girl, I know I could get you what you need
'cause you're so use to getting what you want
Well, look no further, baby

[Chorus]

If that's what it takes
I ain't gonna lose any time
Whatever you want from me, baby
Whatever it takes to make you mine

    Having the vinyl record and a good sound system is key … 'dragging a diamond through a ditch' (re:playing vinyl) there is magic in it, and there is so much soul in this album

    If thats you... because somebody has my energy like this... somebody pulls me right here... somebody gets happy when im around... and somebody gets resentful sometimes... is that all you?

    I sat next to Michael McDonald years ago at a salon in Green Hills Area in Nashville Tennessee, I had to take a second look because I could not believe I was sitting next to the one of this world's best singers, I have listened to him since I was a teenager. He sings and brings serenity to the heart. Thank you God for allowing him to share his voice with all of us. Blessings always.
