. Words in ( ) are a female backup.

I got a date tonight with such a sweet little innocent thing
I ll sweep er off her feet before she knows what s a-happening
I m gonna hand her (ooh) my "sweet-talkin " line
I know it kills her (shriek!) every time
She s gonna love me from the start
And then I m gonna break her heart

Oh, yes I will

Yes, I will

Oh, yes I will, yes I will, yes I will!!

I m just a big bad wolf, I know tonight I ll be looking so good
She ll be a helpless child just like a-Little Red Riding Hood
I m gonna charm her (mmm!) right into a trance
I know she ll never (wow!) stand a chance
She s gonna love me from the start
And then I m gonna break her heart

Oh, yes I will

Yes, I will

Yes I will, yes I will, yes I will!!

But I m a lover!!!

Man, my reputation!!
FADE
