Richie, Lionel - Can't Slow Down Lyrics




I know what's on your mind.
You feel you're wasting time.
Wanna talk about it?
You feel there's something wrong.
Don't feel like holding on.
You better think about it.
You say you jest can't see.
Don't lay that hurt on me.
What I'm trying baby.
Got something on my mind.
Something I've got to find.
I'm on the move baby.

[Chorus:]
You see I (can't slow down)
Got to keep movin' baby (can't slow down)
No I (can't slow down)
Oh (can't slow down)
Got to keep movin' on, oh baby.

I'm out here on the run.
Trying to get things done.
Can you hear me baby?
You think my love's nowhere.
You think I just don't care.
Are you kidding baby?
Don't make me play no games.
Too hard to just stay sane.
You know that time won't wait
Why should I hesitate.
Got to do it baby.

[Chorus]

I'm working hard tryin' to pull it together.
You know I've got to right now.
'cause girl I can't quit once I get started,
I've got to make it somhow...
Ah, (I got to keep movin', I can't stop movin')
(I got to keep movin', I can't stop)
(I got to keep movin', I can't stop movin')
(I got to keep movin', I can't stop)
Oh, (I got to keep movin', I can't stop movin')
(I got to keep movin', I can't stop)
That's right (I got to keep movin', I can't stop movin')
That's right (I got to keep movin', I can't stop)
(can't slow down)
(can't slow down)
(can't slow down)
Oh, (can't slow down)
(can't slow down)
(can't slow down)
Baby

Ooh girl I'm all fired up.
Ooh girl I'm all fired up.
Just can't get enough, girl of it, ah
Girl I'm on the one, 'cause I keep on keepin' on.
Oh yeah, oh.
You see I (can't slow down)
Got to keep movin' baby
Oh (can't slow down)
Ooh, just (can't slow down)
(can't slow down)
Can't stop baby (can't slow down)
Ooh, alright (can't slow down)
Ah running, (can't slow down)
Running, running baby (can't slow down)
Ooh, (can't slow down)
Got to keep movin' (can't slow down)
Ooh yeah girl (can't slow down)

    Can't Slow Down

    I know what's on your mind.
    You feel you're wasting time.
    Wanna talk about it?
    You feel there's something wrong.
    Don't feel like holding on.
    You better think about it.
    You say you jest can't see.
    Don't lay that hurt on me.
    What I'm trying baby.
    Got something on my mind.
    Something I've got to find.
    I'm on the move baby.

    (chorus)
    You see I (can't slow down)
    Got to keep movin' baby (can't slow down)
    No I (can't slow down)
    Oh (can't slow down)
    Got to keep movin' on, oh baby.

    I'm out here on the run.
    Trying to get things done.
    Can you hear me baby?
    You think my love's nowhere.
    You think I just don't care.
    Are you kidding baby?
    Don't make me play no games.
    Too hard to just stay sane.
    You know that time won't wait
    Why should I hesitate.
    Got to do it baby.

    (chorus)
    You see I (can't slow down)
    I got to keep movin' baby (can't slow down)
    No I (can't slow down)
    Can't stop baby, no (can't slow down)
    Got to keep pushin'
    Got to keep movin' on.
    Oh, oh baby, ah, oh, oh baby.

  2. soham 121ay

    Anyone from family guy ?????

  3. Pete Jones

    I did not know who I was until I heard this album

  4. Zoliana Khupchong

    Peter Griffin brought me here..

  5. Lucas Pitts

    You can tell this album had a lot of influence from the success of thriller

    - Buehmann

    I always think the rhythm, and bass where stolen from Wanna Be Startin' Somethin'.

  6. Ralph O' LIVE Music

    Wanna be startin' something, gotta be startin' something!

  7. Luan Murseli

    Wanna Be Startin' Somethin' Wanna Be Startin' Somethin' Wanna Be Startin' Somethin'........ What a ripp off. But i love other songs i just hate this one.

    - Buehmann

    Even though I love this song, I'm glad I'm not the only one who feels like he ripped off that song.

  8. The Serious Thomas Collector

    First time hearing this I had this feeling of toto vibes and I was right because Jeff did the drumming for this song.

  9. - Buehmann

    0:08-0:15 & 3:21-3:29 Epic string builds. (low-pass filter??) And the wind effect you hear afterwards make it cooler.

    Also, it sounds like he stole the rhythm and bass line from Wanna Be Startin' Somethin' by Michael Jackson.

  10. Town Drunk

    Growing up this song always sounded and reminded me of something Jermaine Jackson would sing, write and produce. This whole album is classic tho!

  11. Marjolein Van Dijk

    😍😍🤤I WAS ,,,🤔, ..15 YEARS ....
    AND I L💖VE THE COMMODORES
    BUT ,THIS ALBUM ,,I 💝SO MUCH❣️A LOT OF L💗VE FROM
    🌹🌺💖AM⭐DAM😜❌❌❌

  12. Cool Cat

    Awesome track. Should've been a radio single IMHO.

  13. Curtis Boswell

    When stationed at Camp Stanley, Korea, in 1985-1986, I wore this cassette out, in my portable jam box. Loved this particular track more than any of Lionel's worthy stuff. Danceable, and very motivational song.

  14. Alessio Roma

    🌍❤🎶🎶

  15. Xennial Hipster

    I don't get how the album had 5 singles and this wasn't one of them. It's the most funk R&B and closest to the Commodores sound. After three ballads (Hello, Stuck on You and Penny Lover) it would've been a great choice for another upbeat single, which kinda sounds like "Wanna Be Startin' Something".

    Cool Cat

    Agreed. This had Top 40 hit written all over it & is a very cool track. I guess they figured they already had too many singles on the radio & ballads were usually given more preference then rock songs back then. But, in the end, it still didn't hurt Lionel's record sales cuz he still ended up selling a ton of albums.

  16. eric bright

    well this one used to go down

  17. Est lhm

    Was always driving or going somewhere to this song

  18. Derek Alvarado

    You have been hurt. That much is clear. Who hurt you? Who hurt you?

    LoDiego Castillo

    Derek Alvarado Peter!

  19. marinerosany

    Great driving song!!!!

  20. IronMan93

    This album is where Lionel Richie truly became a pop artist. Nevertheless, it's very good album.

  21. Legalidad Humana

    Otra más de esas melodías agresivas en su momento 👍🏽

  22. Tim Long

    This is the song that got me stuck on Lionel back in 1983......

    john orofino

    Tim Long ,yup me to

  23. Greg D

    You sped it up... turned it into rock and destroyed the entire vibe..

    Cool Cat

    Nope. This is actually the original tempo.

  24. Henry Dorval

    This sounds like Thriller's intro "Wanna Be Starting Something"

    Citizen Helene

    The intro sounds almost identical to the instrumental breakdown bit in Thriller

    The Serious Thomas Collector

    That’s because toto is very diverse when working with all artists. Toto did a lot for thriller and Toto’s original drummer Jeff did the drumming for this song

    ilj274

    I said the exact same thing. He sampled MJ's style of music.

    Ellis Woodall

    @ilj274 Yes Indeed

    Ellis Woodall

    @The Serious Thomas Collector I love Toto, I like that they did Human NATURE

  25. Kel Raphiel

    man i wish i was signed with motown i love songs with awesome beats and melodies

  26. Rohan Padiyar

    This song should fit Sonic The Hedgehog to a tee.

    starkid77

    +Rohan Padiyar I can see Sonic bumpin' to this, lol.

    somekidnamedold

    The Sonic CD game especially.

    John

    how does sonic not cheat when playing golf

  27. Nathan Milliron

    Has LR ever performed this song live?

    Vladimir Barriere

    Amazing mix of virtuosity and simplicity

  28. ShyGuy83

    This album is to Lionel Richie what Thriller is to Michael Jackson.

    *SUPERSTAR LEGEND TRIBUTES*

    +quiktymevideo ;)

    CocoaFemme 1015
