Effervescent Sensuality

The lyrics to Floetry “Say Yes” are simply, effervescent and sensual. I’ve been fond of this song for over a decade, because it speaks about the imaginative thoughts that we have whenever we see someone that we like. It describes the uncertainty about if we will or won’t actually indulge our senses and give in to primal urges.

I’ve often thought that this would be a perfect song for a guy to remake, as men are socialized to be more open to one night stands or casual sex, and needing to prod a woman out of her head and into his bed. Nonetheless, Andre Harris and Marsha Ambrosius wrote a stunning piece of work. Enjoy the simplistic, yet very vivid lyrics below.

 “Say Yes”

[Intro:]
See I’ve been watching you for a while your smile and stuff
and I don’t know if I can be with you for tonight alright,
is that alright baby, baby

[Verse 1:]
There is only one for me
You have made that a possibility
We could take that step to see, ohh
If this is really gonna be
All you gotta do is say yes

[Chorus:]
All you gotta do is say yes
Don’t deny what you feel let me undress you baby
Open up your mind and just rest
I’m about to let you know you make me so
All you gotta do is say yes
Don’t deny what you feel let me undress you baby
Open up your mind and just rest
I’m about to let you know you make me so, so, so, so, so, so, so, so,
You make me so, so, so, so, so, so, so, so

[Verse 2:]
Loving you has taken time, taken time
But I always knew you could be mine
I recognize the butterflies inside me
Sense is gonna be made tonight, tonight
All you gotta do is say yes

[Repeat Chorus]

[Ad lib to end]
