Sweet surrender

Now you wanna know the reason
Why I cheated on you
Well I had to be a hunter again
This little man had to try
To make love feel new again

'Cause there's just a few things honey
I'm not old enough to do for you
And there are things, mama
You just never care to show me

So this flim-flam lover boy found him a flamingo
And his flamingo showed him how to tango
And when they tangoed
It'd send their hearts a flutter
Tease them till they stutter

Made them so young and tender
Seemed to surrender in so sweet surrender
In sweet surrender
Ahh sweet surrender to love

But now you're gonna go out
And get yourself a reputation
But I'm gonna have to show you where to start
And then you're gonna bring back your little reputation
And prove to me what I could not prove to you

Cause I was just too young and hot
I was just too cold honey
Just too hot to care
Ah just too hot
To surrender, surrender to love
Sweet surrender, surrender to love

If we could just surrender
Love would heal the mess we made

So give it up mama
It ain't gonna be no good to keep going round and round
You hurt me, then I hurt you again
All there's left to do is give it up
Give it up and surrender
Sweet surrender, sweet surrender your love
To love... to love...
