​Check It Out

This song is by Bobby Womack and appears on the album I Don't Know What The World Is Coming To (1975) and on the album So Many Rivers (1985).

Girl, Baby
What gave it away?
You had somethin' on your mind
That you didn't know how to say
How can I love you
If you keep runnin' away
Doin' everything in my power to make to make you stay
Hey baby, keep runnin' away
Checking out see what I'm all about
And in your mind, you can have no bout
Have no bout, all ya' do is check it out

Your vibes, baby, lemme tell you about 'em
Is what I kept feelin' inside
I was tryin' to be a stubborn type of fellow
But I kept holdin' holdin' back my pride

How can we make love to each other
If you keep runnin' away, if you keep runnin' away
Doin' everything in my heart to make you stay
Make ya stay, Make ya stay
Doin' everything in my power to make to make you stay
Hey baby, can't stpp runnin' away
Checking out see what I'm all about
Don't have to listen to your friends
'Cause you'll find out, all ya' do is check it out

Get on down, you'll have to get up
If you want to get down
I'll give you my love
And I'll put it where you want it
But you gotta' stick around

How I can make love to you
If you keep runnin' away

Doin' everything in my power to make to make you stay
Make ya stay, Make ya stay
Girl pick it up, let it lay, let it lay

Checking out see what I'm all about
And in your mind, you can have no bout
Have no bout, all ya' do is check it out
Yeah, Yeah Yeah Yeah Yeah Yeah Yeah Yeah

Get on up, Get on down
I'll be around when your sun goes down
Hey baby, Gotta, Gotta, Gotta
