lyrics
------
make up your mind
decide to walk with me
around the lake tonight
around the lake tonight
by my side
by my side

i'm not gonna lie
i'll not be a gentleman
behind the boathouse
i'll show you my dark secret

i'm not gonna lie
i want you for mine
my flesh and blood
my lover, be my lover yeah....

don't be afraid
i didn't mean to scare you
so help me jesus

i can promise you
you'll stay as beautiful
with dark hair
and soft skin.....forever
forever

make up your mind 
make up your mind, 
and i'll promise you
i will treat you well
my sweet angel 
so help me jesus

yeah..hey..yeah

give it up to me             >
