    "The Pleasure Principle
    " – Janet Jackson

    You might think I'm crazy, but I'm serious

    It's better you know now

    What I thought was happiness was only part-time bliss

    You can take a bow

    It was all just one big night out on the town

    Riding in your limousine

    We turned right and I say wrong which brings us to a stop

    As the light is changing

    Oh my meters running so I got to go now

    It's the pleasure principle oh oh oh

    It's the principle of pleasure Oh oh

    It's the pleasure principle oh oh oh oh

    It's true you want to build your life of guarantees

    Hey take a ride in a big yellow taxi

    I'm not here to feed your insecurities

    I wanted you to love me

    This has become an all too familiar scene

    It's not the first time I paid the fare

    Where'd you get the idea of material possession?

    Thank you for the ride nowhere

    And oh my meters running so I've really got to go

    It's the pleasure principle oh oh oh oh oh

    It's the principle of pleasure ohhh

    It's the pleasure principle oh oh oh oh oh

    I know – what you mean to me

    Baby this is nowhere

    You know – what became between you and me

    human differential

    It's the principle of pleasure

    Oh ohhhh oh ohhhh

    It's the pleasure principle – principle

    Oh oh oh oh

    You might say that I'm no good

    I wouldn't trust your looks baby if I could

    I got so many things I wanna do

    before I'm through

    Hey

    It's the pleasure principle

    It's the pleasure principle

    Baby you can't hold me down

    Baby you can't hold me down

    After all the lovin' we've been through

    And after all you've put me through

    Yeah yeah, hey yeah

    Love me, hey yeah, Love me yeah

    Hoo hoo hoo hoo

    It's the pleasure principle of love

    yeah, yeah
