BABY (YOU'VE GOT WHAT IT TAKES) (Clyde Otis / Murray Stein / Brook Benton) Dinah Washington & Brook Benton - 1960 (Brook) Well, now, it takes more than a robin to make the winter go And it takes two lips of fire to melt away the snow (Dinah) Well, it takes two hearts a-cookin' to make a fire grow And baby you've got what it takes (Dinah) You know it takes a lot of kissin' SPOKEN (Tell me about it) to make a romance sweet (Dinah) Ooh, it takes a lot of lovin' to make my life complete (Brook) Mmm, and it takes a lot of woman to knock me off my feet and baby, you've got what it takes. (Dinah) I said, mm, mm, mm. uh-huh, mm, mm, mm (Dinah) Ah, ah, hah mm, mm (Brook) You know you've got just what it takes! (Brook) Because it takes more than an effort to stay away from you It'd take more than a lifetime to prove that I'll be true (Dinah) But it takes somebody special to make me say, "I do." (Brook) SPOKEN "Oh, yeah" (Dinah) And baby, you've got what it takes. (Dinah) Ah, ah, hah mm, mm, uh-huh, mm, mm, mm (Both) Mmm (Brook) You know you've got just what it takes (Dinah) Because it takes oh yeah (Dinah) SPOKEN " You're back in my spot again, honey" (Brook) SPOKEN "I like your spot" (Dinah) To stay away from you (Brook) SPOKEN "I can't stay away from you" (Dinah) It takes more than a lifetime, daddy, to prove that I'll be true (Dinah) SPOKEN "NOW it's you" (Brook) But, it takes somebody special SPOKEN "Like me, baby" to make me say, "I do." (Both) And baby you've got what it takes (Dinah) SPOKEN "C'mon, let's play it again, huh?" (Brook) SPOKEN "C'mon, let's do it one more time, all right?" (Both) And baby you've got what it takes (Dinah) SPOKEN "One more time, Brook" (Brook) SPOKEN "Ah-ha, OK, Ah-ha" (Both) And baby you've got what it takes FADE
