(Muffled Scatting by Scatman John)

GIRLS: Take your time on the morning after
Better watch your heart, when the beat gets faster
Baby I know, I'll never let you go

(Scatting by Scatman John)

GIRLS: Take your time on the morning after
Better watch your heart, when the beat gets faster
Baby I know, I'll never let you go
I'll never let you go

JOHN: Listen my friend, you don't need any more
When you already got what you're looking for
When you're on the run, from emotions of the past
No relation you make can ever last

You're not ready for love, put it on the shelf
The relationship you need first, is with yourself
Put the cart before the horse and she's gonna turn cold
She don't have any freedom when you try to control

Listen my friend - come close to me
Love is in your hand - you've got to let it be...

GIRLS: Take your time on the morning after
Better watch your heart, when the beat gets faster
Baby I know, I'll never let you go

(Scatting by Scatman John)

GIRLS: Take your time on the morning after
Better watch your heart, when the beat gets faster
Baby I know, I'll never let you go
I'll never let you go

JOHN: The hole in your soul keeps making you smug
You'll only wanna use the lady as a drug
It's you that you need, not a woman possessed
'Cause when you got you, you'll be ready for the rest

Slow it down brother or you'll miss what you're looking for
It keeps you on the go, and you'll always need more
Love is in the moment - the kind of love that lasts
But you can't have the moment if you're stuck in the past

Look, and you'll see love is there in your hand
Just open your eyes, and you'll begin to understand
Wanna hear the secret? Let yourself be,
You'll inherit your life - it's ecstasy

(Muffled Scatting by Scatman John)

GIRLS: Take your time on the morning after
Better watch your heart, when the beat gets faster
Baby I know, I'll never let you go

(Scatting by Scatman John)

GIRLS: Take your time on the morning after
Better watch your heart, when the beat gets faster
Baby I know, I'll never let you go

(Scatting by Scatman John)

GIRLS: Take your time on the morning after
Better watch your heart, when the beat gets faster
Baby I know, I'll never let you go
I'll never let you go...
