Why would you want to take it slow
Hold me till I let you go
Or treat me like a tennis pro?
Why would you want to do that?
Why would you want to do that?

Why would you want to dim the light
Or let that record play all night
Or scramble yolk in with the white?
Why would you want to do that?
Why would you want to do that?

Because I asked you
Because I asked you to

Why would you want to tell the truth
Or furnish me with mathematical proof
Or jump with me off of the roof?

Why would you want to do that?
Why would you want to do that?

Why would you want to hold me tight?
Talk me out of my stage fright
Help me out with my rewrites

Why would you want to do that?
Why would you want to do that?

Because I asked you
Because I asked you to

I'll look in your eyes
I am so polite
Think about it
I'll be here all night

Why would you want to let me sleep
Or look before you cross the street
Into my dreams, between my sheets?
Why would you want to do that?
Why would you want to do that?

Why would you want to take it slow
Or tell me something I don't know
And when I say so, let it go?
Why would you want to do that?
Why would you want to do that?

Because I asked you
Because I asked you to
Because I asked you
Because I love you

I'll look in your eyes
I am so polite
Just think about it
I'll be here all night
