<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' <Brook> 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, <Both> mm, mm, mm. uh-huh, mm, mm, mm
<Dinah> Ah, ah, hah <Both> 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 <Both> 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 <Dinah> 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

NOTE: Exchange at ** apparently prompted when Brook jumped into a line
that Dinah was supposed to sing.
