Lyrics

Wow.
It's really good to see you again, baby.
And I must admit you're looking very, very, very nice these days.
I guess life must be treating you well.

The vocals in this song are awesome; one would never know that Teena Marie had pneumonia, and was running a high fever when she recorded this song with Rick James. This is a hands down classic and demonstrates what a person can do when they are dedicated too and love his or her craft. RIP Rick and Teena! Thank you for bearing the burdens of this world and sharing your talent.
