Lyrics

Ad lib lead over intro- You’re makin’ it harder
(Girl,) you’re makin’ it harder

Verse- Diff’rent bodies…diff’rent names
I used to think they were all the same
There were no tears… I felt no shame
There were no rules…it was only a game

Lift- Find ‘em, forget ‘em, might be the mark of a man (oooh)
But never regret ‘em was the law (oooh) in my land…

Chorus- It’s gettin’ harder (harder and harder)…to say no to you (no, baby)
I’m gettin’ closer (closer and closer)…to sayin’ I do

Verse- Diff’rent girl in every town
I’d pick one up and put two down
Playing the field…trav’lin’ around
The very next day I just couldn’t be found

Lift- Find ‘em, forget ‘em, might be the mark of a man (oooh)
But never regret ‘em…was the law (oooh) in my land…

Chorus- It’s gettin’ harder (harder and harder) and harder…to say no to you
I’m gettin’ farther (farther and farther) and farther….from all I once knew
tellin’ you

You’re makin’ it (harder and harder) and harder…to say no to you (no, baby)
I’m gettin’ closer (closer and closer) and closer…to sayin’ I do….really love you

Musical interlude/guitar ride from verse groove

Repeat chorus…You’re makin’ it, you’re makin’ it

Bkgds repeat chorus melody-Harder and harder…to say no…to you
Farther and farther…from all I one knew
Harder and harder…to say no to you
Closer and closer…to sayin’…I do

Ad lib lead over clarinet ride from chorus groove continues to fade
