Paula Abdul — Opposites Attract lyrics

(oliver leiber)

Baby seems we never ever agree
You like the movies
And I like t.v.
I take thing serious
And you take em light
I go to bed early
And I party all night
Our friends are sayin
We aint gonna last
Cuz I move slowly
And baby Im fast
I like it quiet
And I love to shout
But when we get together
It just all works out

I take--2 steps forward
I take--2 steps back
We come together
Cuz opposites attract
And you know--it aint fiction
Just a natural fact
We come together
Cuz opposites attract

Whod 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
Shes got the money
And he's always broke
I don't like cigarettes
And I like to smoke
Things in common
There just aint a one
But when we get together
We have nothin but fun

I take--2 steps forward
I take--2 steps back
We come together
Cuz opposites attract
And you know--it aint fiction
Just a natural fact
We come together
Cuz opposites attract

Repeat chorus

Baby aint it somethin
How we lasted this long
You and me
Provin everyone wrong
Don't think well ever
Get our differences patched
Don't really matter
Cuz were perfectly matched

Repeat chorus twice

Raps:
Im m.c. kat on the rap so mic it
Heres a little story and you're sure to like it
Swift and sly and Im playing it cool
With my homegirl, paula abdul

Nothing in common but this trust
Im 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 Im telling you jack
Its useless, opposites attract
