Oh yeah, oh yeah
Oh yeah, baby
M A R Y J. Blige
Oh, how I wish I was by your side
Oh yeah yeah

I wanna be all you need, baby
And I want you to be my superwoman
Boy, I will be your friend forever
Well, go on and leave me that heart and you can get mine

I'm gonna be your baby for life
If you're in the dark I'll be a sunlight
'Cause all you need is my love
I'm telling you what's up so just make room for love

It's a shake down, shake down
I'm robbing you for your love
She's robbing me for my love

It's a shake down, shake down
(Shake down)
Boy, you ain't gotta say nothing
No, baby put your hands up 'cause it's a

Shake down, shake down, down
(Shake down)
Shake down, shake down, down
Shake down, shake down, down
Shake down, shake down
I'm robbing you for your love

Girl, I wanna share my existence
And through time my love will stay persistent, boy
All of me is what you're getting, let the world be the witness
Bad times, we'll work it out like fitness or we live it

'Cause I vow to give you my all
Boy, I will hold you up, hold you up if you fall
I see us in your chamber
Your heart's in danger
Oh, taking your love
Won't you just give it up?

It's a shake down, shake down, down
(Shake down)
I'm robbing you for your love, boy
(Ooh, you robbing me for my love, it's love)

It's a shake down, shake down, down
(Shake down)
But you ain't gotta say nothing, nothing, oh

Shake down, shake down, down
(Shake down)
Shake down, shake down, down
(Shake down)

Shake down, shake down, down
Shake down, shake down
I'm robbing you for your love

If love is the crime, I'm down for it
(If love is a crime)
Let love be the judge I receive the verdict
Now, take me, baby in your arms
(Take me in your arms)
Hold me tight, don't put up a fight

It's a shake down, shake down
Come on baby, get down, get down
(Get down)
I'm willing to do some time, baby
(Do your time)
To make sure that your love is mine, all mine

Shake down, shake down
I'm robbing you for your love
I'm robbing you for your love
It's a shake down, shake down
And you ain't gotta say nothing

It's a shake down, shake down, down
Shake down, shake down, down
(Shake down)
Shake down, shake down, down
Shake down, shake down
I'm robbing you for your love

'Cause it's a shake down, shake down
(Shake down, shake down)
Shake down, shake down
(Shake down, shake down)
Oh, it's a shake down

Baby, come bring all your love to me
Don't you hesitate, baby, don't put up a fight

'Cause it's a shake down, shake down
(Shake down, shake down)
Shake down, shake down
(Shake down, shake down)
Oh, it's a shake down
