I'm M.C. Kat on the rap so mic it
Here's a little story and you're sure to like it
Swift and sly and I'm playing it cool
With my home girl, Paula Abdul

Baby seems we never ever agree
You like the movies and I like TV
I take things serious and you take 'em light
I go to bed early and I party all night

Our friends are sayin' we ain't gonna last
'Cuz I move slowly and baby I'm fast
I like it quiet and I love to shout
But when we get together, it just all works out

I take two steps forward, I take two steps back
We come together 'cuz opposites attract
And you know it ain't fiction just a natural fact
We come together 'cuz opposites attract

Who'd a thought we could be lovers
She makes the bed and he steals the covers
She likes it neat and he makes a mess
I take it easy baby, I get obsessed

She's got the money and he's always broke
I don't like cigarettes, I like to smoke
Things in common, there just ain't a one
But when we get together, we have nothin' but fun

I take two steps forward, two steps back
We come together 'cuz opposites attract
And you know it ain't fiction just a natural fact
We come together 'cuz opposites attract
You know it baby, baby

Nothing in common but this trust
I'm like a minus, she's like a plus
One going up, one coming down
But we seem to land on common ground
When things go wrong we make corrections
To keep things moving in the right direction
Try to fight it but I'm telling you Jack
It's useless, opposites attract

Baby ain't it somethin' how we lasted this long
You and me provin' everyone wrong
Don't think we'll ever get our differences patched
Don't really matter 'cuz we're perfectly matched

I take two steps forward, I take two steps back
We come together 'cuz opposites attract
And you know it ain't fiction just a natural fact
We come together 'cuz opposites attract

Two steps forward, two steps back
We come together 'cuz opposites attract
And you know it ain't fiction just a natural fact
We come together 'cuz opposites attract

Two steps forward, two steps back
We come together 'cuz opposites attract
It ain't fiction you know it's a fact
We come together 'cuz opposites attract

Two steps forward, two steps back
Two steps back 'cuz opposites attract
We come together, we go together
Opposites, I said, Opposites attract
