I’m going with the Two Phils and Easy Lover.

I loved this when it came out in 1984. It never fails to get my feet tapping.

“Easy Lover”
Lyrics courtesy AZLyrics.com
Writer(s): Phil Collins, Philip James Bailey, Nathan Harrell East

Easy lover
She’ll get a hold on you believe it
Like no other
Before you know it you’ll be on your knees
She’s an easy lover
She’ll take your heart but you won’t feel it
She’s like no other
And I’m just trying to make you see

She’s the kind of girl you dream of
Dream of keeping hold of
You’d better forget it
You’ll never get it
She will play around and leave you
Leave you and deceive you
Better forget it
Oh you’ll regret it

No you’ll never change her, so leave it, leave it
Get out quick cos seeing is believing
It’s the only way
You’ll ever know

She’s an easy lover
She’ll get a hold on you believe it
Like no other
Before you know it you’ll be on your knees
She’s an easy lover
She’ll take your heart but you won’t feel it
She’s like no other
And I’m just trying to make you see

You’re the one that wants to hold her
Hold her and control her
You’d better forget it
You’ll never get it
Oh she’ll say that there’s no other
Till she finds another
Better forget it
Oh you’ll regret it

And don’t try to change her, just leave it, leave it
You’re not the only one, ooh seeing is believing
It’s the only way
You’ll ever know, oh

No don’t try to change her, just leave it, leave it
You’re not the only one, ooh seeing is believing
It’s the only way
You’ll ever know, oh

She’s an easy lover (she’s an easy lover)
She’ll get a hold on you believe it (get a hold on you)
(She’s) like no other
Before you know it you’ll be on your knees (you’ll be down on your knees)
She’s an easy lover
She’ll take your heart but you won’t feel it (you won’t feel it)
She’s like no other
And I’m just trying to make you see (trying to make you see, yeah)

She’s an easy lover
She’ll get a hold on you believe it (get a hold on you)
And like no other
Before you know it you’ll be on your knees (you’ll be down on your knees)
(yeah yeah yeah)
She’s an easy lover
She’ll take your heart but you won’t feel it (you won’t feel it)
She’s like no other
And I’m just trying to make you see (trying to make you see)

She’s an easy lover
She’ll get a hold on you believe it…

About pensitivity101

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination and wacky sense of humour which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and am a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes! We have an elderly dog called Maggie who adopted us as a 7 week old pup in March 2005. From 2014 to 2017 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat where we made strong friendships both on and off the water. We were close to nature enjoying swan and duck families for neighbours, and it was a fascinating chapter in our lives. We now reside in a small bungalow on the Lincolnshire coast where we have forged new friendships and interests.

    This is an awesome song. Takes me back to high school. I graduated in 1984. 🙂

    • I left school at 16 in 1972.

      • Lisa Coleman says:

        Wow! My mom married at 16, had me when she was 19. She still managed to graduate though. I’m guessing it worked out for you? 🙂

      • I’m in the UK, got 3 O levels and started work after I left school. Over the years, I always worked with money or figures. It wasn’t until 1989 that I came into my own with an American Bank. I was there for over 12 years and had 2 promotions, one to a signatory for the bank in a supervisory role after a year, and as a financial analyst for 5 years until I was made redundant in September 2001. I was good at my job, but had no paper qualifications to say I could do it. From there I went into credit control and reduced their aged debt percentage to less than 2% within a year. I retired in 2007 with a small bank pension, but won’t get my state pension until 2022.
