Oh yeah...
Baby...
Oh, how I wish I was by your side.
Oh yeah...

Verse 1
Lucious and Angie

I wanna be all you need baby.
And I want you to be my superwoman.
Boy, I will be your friend forever.
Well, gone and leave me that heart and you can get mine.
I'm gonna be your baby tonight.
If you're in the dark I'll be your some light.
Cause all you need is my love.
Telling you what's up.
So just make room for love.


Chorus
(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
Well, baby put your hands up then
(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.


Verse 2
Girl, I wanna share my existence.
And through time my love will stay persistent, boy.
All of me is what you 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.
I'm taking your love.
Won't you just give it up?


Chorus
(It's a shake down, shake down)
Shake down
I'm robbing you for your love, boy
you robbing me for my love
(It's a shake down, shake down)
Shake down
But you ain't gotta say nothing, oh.
(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.


Bridge
If love is the crime, I'm down for it
If love is the crime
Let love be the judge
I receive the verdict
Now, take me baby
Take me
In your arms
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
I'm willing to do some time, baby
Do your time
To make sure that your love is mines
All mines


Chorus
(It's a shake down, shake down)
I'm robbing you for your love
You robbing me for my love
(It's a shake down, shake down)
Ohhh...
And you ain't gotta say nothing
(Shake down, shake down, down)
(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


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


Cause it's a shake down.
