Wow, It's really good to see you again, baby
And I must admit you're looking very, very, very nice these days
I guess life must be treating you well oh me?
Well, I've just been doing the same ol' thing
I've always been doing, you know
I've got a new lady now and it's a little
Different than it was when I was with you
You know, I think back to when we met
The way I used to be and the cold way I used to act
But more than that, I think of how you changed me
With your love and sensitivity, remember when I used to

Love them and leave them
That's what I used to do
Use and abuse them
Then I laid eyes on you
It was pain before pleasure
That was my claim to fame
With every measure, baby
Tasted teardrop stains, yeah

I was cold as ice, long ago baby, baby
I wasn't very, very, very nice you know
Sugar, sugar, sugar
Then I kissed your lips and
You turned on my fire, baby
And you burned me up within your flame

Took me a little higher
Made me live again
You turned on my fire, baby
Then you showed me what a love could do
Fire and desire, baby
Feel it comin' through
And I thank you baby

Oh how I thank you, baby
You taught me so much
And you showed me so much love and sensitivity
that since you've been gone
I don't think I've ever felt this way before

You know, it's funny how a man can change
So quickly from a cold blooded person
Thinking he's God's gift to women
Remember how I used to do that?
Must have been crazy then
Remember when you used to

Love them and leave them
That's what I used to do
Use and abuse them
Then I laid eyes on you
It was pain before pleasure
That was my claim to fame
With every measure
Tasted your teardrop stains, yeah

You were cold as ice, long ago baby, baby
I, I wasn't, I, I wasn't very nice, I know
Sugar, sugar, sugar, sugar then I kissed your lips and you
You turned on turned you turned on on
You turned on my fire, baby fire
Then you showed me what a love can do
Fire and desire, fire and desire
Feelin' good to you, you turned on my fire, you turned on fire
Baby and you burned me up within your flame
You burned me, you burned me
Fire and desire, fire and desire
And we're both to blame, both to blame
