Make me know it, baby, I crave some action;
Make me know it, baby, prove what you say;
I want no fooling, and I don't mean maybe,
I've had my fooling; I wasn't born today.

Make me know it, baby, if you mean business,
Make me know it, baby, and don't delay;
I like your style, your smile, your pretty hair,
But this don't get me anywhere,
Make me know it if you mean just what you say.

You claim that you love me true,
And there's nothing you won't do.
Now, sweet child, if you're sincere,
Listen while I cuddle near,
I've heard the sweet wind blow before,
Had the wolf at my door;
My brain isn't made of wood,
I guess it's understood.

Oh, baby, I crave some action;
Oh, baby, prove what you say;
I want no fooling, and I don't mean maybe,
I've had my fooling; I wasn't born today.

Baby, if you mean business,
Baby, now don't delay;
I like your style, your smile, your pretty hair,
But this don't get me anywhere,
Make me know it if you mean just what you say.
