Palmer, Robert - I Didn't Mean To Turn You On Lyrics




When I took you out
I knew what you were all about
But when I did
I didn't mean to turn you on
Now I bring you home
You tell me "Good night's" not enough for you
I'm sorry, baby
I didn't mean to turn you on
Oh, I didn't mean to turn you on
You read me wrong
I wasn't tryin' to lead you on
Not like you think
I didn't mean to turn you on
I know you
Expected a one-night-stand, when I refused
I knew you wouldn't understand
I'm sorry, baby
I didn't mean to turn you on
I told you twice
I was only tryin' to be nice
Only tryin' to be nice
Oh, I didn't mean to turn you on
Hey, now why should I
Feel guilty 'cause I won't give
Guilty 'cause I won't give in
I didn't mean to turn you on
Oh, baby, I didn't mean to turn you on
When I took you out
I knew what you were all about
But when I did
I didn't mean to turn you on
Oh, baby, I didn't mean to turn you on

Palmer, Robert I Didn't Mean To Turn You On Comments
  1. Julie Raymond

    No wonder Arcadia were so disappointed. Seems Andy and John decided to make an album they wanted , that was outside Duran’s pop music, and did well.Even had a second album a decade or so later Arcadia, no.

  7. Frank Paya

    The way the song begins with those three beeps is kind of ironic now, being that he died of a heart attack at the age of 54.

    Robert, he was so coo l

  31. Pall Mall

    Robert Palmer was pure class.

  32. twalsh06

    Robert didn't launch himself into the excessive 80s rock lifestyle. He didn't do drugs, excessive boozing, or irresponsible partying. The only bad thing he did was... he smoked 3 packs a day. And that was enough to kill him. Don't smoke.

  33. akis asimakopoulos

    Very clever song! PIONEER MUSIC!

  44. Scherie Gaitor

    I can't believe this song and video is 34 years old. My favorite song from Robert Palmer. He made made coin for Cherelle who wrote and sang the song!! RIP Mr. Palmer.

  45. Kevin Farries

    I'm the one that told Robert Palmer to quit the pimp game and start doing covers to songs I originally wrote for other artist. I had my stylist make them street women into the first professional video models. T. K. Kirkland

  46. Kumi Kumi

    Still rocking this song in 2020🔥🔥🔥

  47. KuroiHato69

    I always liked Palmer's version more than the original... You don't see 'cool' like this in today's music scene.....

  48. Julie Raymond

    He was like this in the late ‘70’s, too. Before Power Station, I liked him since ‘78-‘79 when “ Bad Case Of Loving You “ was all over the radio. “Every Kinda People” ,was there ,then also.

  49. azeleapark

    My man had the hottest assistants

  50. marikuraba

    No one even noticed the girls weren't really playing the instruments

    marikuraba

    No one even cares

  51. Nalebranc

    The dancer on the far right of the group in the white is super sexy, featured prominently at 1:54. Even had the best looking moves out of all of them. I know she's in her 50s by now but that sex appeal never goes away.

  52. Damon Edwards

    I like it, but how much cocaine were they on when they made this? The correct answer is all of the cocaine.

    whizz1der

    Coke? Nah, more like too much whiskey and cola

  53. L Joyce

    cherrelle brought me here...i went back immediately

  54. Kia Jones-Glenn

    No men, or even us women for that matter, cared that the ladies weren’t really playing the instruments. It was a really good video lesson on HOW TO BE FREAKING SEXY!!!

  55. octavio santiago

    i still play the cd in my car

  56. Picogram

    Anyone bumpin this funky-ass jam in 2020?

  57. YummyBaer

    Girls looking straight out of a Nagel Print.

  58. YummyBaer

    Again, Mr Palmer...How many women should we put in the video?

    Palmer: All of them

  59. Glenn Hoddle

    *You just know he turned all of them on.Hell, he probably did them all !*

  60. Timothy Midgett

    Feminist and lesbian paradise video, females playing all instruments and dancing!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  70. Myechia Baker

  83. Lesley Carpenter

    The epitome of COOL.

  84. רוברט ויינגר

    Robert palmer had a short solo career, he started in 1974 and ended in 2003 as he died untimely at that year, I mostly knew him from his album from 1976, and from his hits from solo career and with the band power station which got plenty appearances on MTV because his special videos and terrific songs, he was a great artist, he could sing romantic songs to hard rock songs, I love especially his album from 1994, R.I.P

  85. tube4625

    Lyric:

    I Didn't Mean To Turn You On




    When I took you out

    I knew what you were all about

    But when I did

    I didn't mean to turn you on

    Now I bring you home

    You tell me the night's not enough for you

    I'm sorry, baby

    I didn't mean to turn you on

    Woah, baby, I didn't mean to turn you on

    You read me wrong

    I wasn't tryin' to lead you on

    Not like you think

    I didn't mean to turn you on

    I know you

    Expected a one-night-stand when I refused

    I knew you wouldn't understand

    I'm sorry, baby

    I didn't mean to turn you on

    I told you twice

    I was only tryin' to be nice

    Only tryin' to be nice

    Oh, I didn't mean to turn you on

    Hey, now why should I

    Feel guilty 'cause I won't give

    Guilty 'cause I won't give in

    I didn't mean to turn you on

    Woah, baby, I didn't mean to turn you on

    When I took you out

    I knew what you were all about

    But when I did

    I didn't mean to turn you on

    Woah, baby, I didn't mean to turn you on

  91. Danny Agundez

    Great Song 👌

  92. Denise Thomas Hudson

    You read me wrong.

  93. Denise Thomas Hudson

    Tough jam. I'm sorry baby I didn't mean to turn you on.

    "I didnt mean to turn you on"
    Well i'm sorry that you're so fucking cute alright? XD

  96. Lando9566

    Can't wait to meet him, where ever we go after this.

  97. Tyrone Phillips

    This dude looked awkward and emotionless in this video, and sung this remake really flat, yet it went number one. Only Rob could pull this off. 😂

  98. Juan Carlos Sánchez Diaz
