Lyrics



Mm, mm, mm, mm, mm, mm

Mm, mm, mm, mm mm, mm, mm mm


Come on

Lovin' you has got to be (Take me to the other side)

Like the devil in the deep blue sea (Take me to the other side)

Forget about your foolish pride (Take me to the other side)

Oh take me to the other side (Take me to the other side)


My mama told me there'd be days like this

And man she wasn't foolin'

'Cause I just can't believe the way you kiss

You opened up your mouth with bated breath

You said you'd never leave me

You love me, you hate me, I tried to take the loss

You're cryin' me a river but I got to get across


Lovin' you has got to be (Take me to the other side)

Like the devil in the deep blue sea (Take me to the other side)

Forget about your foolish pride (Take me to the other side)

Oh take me to the other side (Take me to the other side)


I'm lookin' for another kind of love

Oh lordy, how I need it

The kind that likes to leap without a shove

Oh honey, best believe it

To save a lot of time and foolish pride

I'll say what's on my mind, girl

You love me, you hate me, you cut me down to size

You blinded me with love and, yeah, it opened up my eyes


Lovin' you has got to be (Take me to the other side)

Like the devil and the deep blue sea (Take me to the other side)

My conscience got to be my guide (Take me to the other side)

Oh honey, take me, take me, take, take, take, take


Take me to the other side

I'm lookin' for another kind of love

Oh, lordy, how I need it

The kind that likes to leap without a shove

Honey, you best believe it

Now I ain't one for saying long goodbyes

I hope all is forgiven

You loved me, you hate me, I used to be your lover

You know you had it coming, girl

So take me to the other side


Lovin' you has got to be (Take me to the other side)

Like the devil and the deep blue sea (Take me to the other side)

My conscience got to be my guide (Take me to the other side)

Oh honey, take me to the other side (Take me to the other side)


Lovin' you has got to be (Take me to the other side)

Like the devil in the deep blue sea (Take me to the other side)

Forget about your foolish pride (Take me to the other side)

Oh take me to the other side
