The Temptations The Way You Do the Things You Do Lyrics

Last updated: 04/12/2010 11:00:00 AM

Lead: Eddie Kendricks

You've got a smile so bright,
you know you could have been a candle.
I'm holding you so tight,
you know you could have been a handle.
The way you swept me off my feet,
you know you could have been a broom.
The way you smelled so sweet,
you know you could have been some perfume.

Well, you could have been anything that you wanted to,
and I can tell the way you do the things you do.
*Eddie: Ah, baby.
*Other Tempts:(The way you do the things you do)
(The way you do the things the do)

As pretty as you are,
you know you could have been a flower.
If good looks was a minute,
you know that you could be an hour.
The way you stole my heart,
you know you could have been a cool crook.
And, baby, you're so smart,
you know you could have been a schoolbook.

Well, you could have been anything that you wanted to,
and I can tell the way you do the things you do.
*Eddie: Ah, baby, yeah
*Other Tempts:(The way you do the things you do)
(The way you do the things you do)

You made my life so rich,
you know you could have been some money.
And, baby, you're so sweet,
you know you could have been some honey.

Well, you could have been anything that you wanted to,
and I can tell the way you do the things you do.
(The way you do the things you do)
You really swept me off my feet (the way you do the things you do)
You made my life complete
(the way you do the things you do)
You made my life so bright
(the way you do the things you do)
You make me feel all right
(the way you do the things you do)
You make me feel all right
(the way you do the things you do)
You make me feel all right
(the way you do the things you do)
Come on, now, baby.

Finally a website that gets the lyrics right!
I've seen everything from "your good looks paused a minute" (instead of "if good looks was a minute")to "you could have been a school whip" (instead of "you could have been a school book").
