I’m outta time and all I got is 4 minutes (x8)
Come on, Yeah
Break down, Come on

Come on boy
I’ve been waiting for somebody
To pick up my stroll

(Justin:)
Well don’t waste time
Give me a sign
Tell me how you wanna roll

(Madonna:)
I want somebody to speed it up for me
Then take it down slow
There’s enough room for both

(Justin:)
Well, I can handle that
You just gotta show me where it’s at
Are you ready to go
(Are you ready to go)

(Madonna & Justin:)
If you want it
You come and get it
If you thought it
It better be what you want
If you feel it
It must be real just
Say the word and help me give you what you want

But if I die tonight
At least I can say I did what I wanted to do
Tell me, how bout you?
