Genius of Love

written and performed by Tom Tom Club

What you gonna do
When you get outta jail
I'm gonna have some fun
What do you consider fun
Fun, nat'ral fun

I'm in heaven
With my boyfriend
My laughing boyfriend
There's no beginning and there is no end
Time isn't present in that dimension
He'll take my arm
When we're walking
Rolling and rocking
It's one time I'm glad I'm not a man
Feels like I'm dreaming but I'm not sleeping

I'm in heaven
With the maven of funk mutation
Clinton's musicians such as Bootsy Collins
Raise expectations to a new intention
No one can sing
Quite like Smokey, Smokey Robinson
Wailin' and skankin' to Bob Marley
Reggae's expanding with Sly an Robbie

Oops yo mama said uh
Oops yo mama said uh
Oops yo mama said uh
Oops yo mama
All that weekend
Boyfriend was missing
I sure am missing
Having him hold me in his warm arms
We were insane when we took cocaine
Steppin' in a rhythm to a Kurtis Blow
Who needs to think when your feet just go
With a hippity hop an a hippity low
Who needs to think
When your feet just go
Bohannon, Bohannon, Bohannon, Bohannon
James Brown, James Brown,
James Brown, James Brown
If you see him
Please remind him
Unhappy boyfriend
Well he's the genius of love
He's got a greater depth of feeling
Well he's the genius of love
He's so deep
