Straight Up

Rewrite of Paula Abdul's hit song of the same name

It makes me just wanna scream
Still don't know which way you like to go
If you are all that you seem
Then, sorry baby, but I'm bettin' that's why you lost the big show

Wondering out here on the dance floor
Baby, have you been caught
Do I really dare you show my slammin' door
Ooh before I decide
How about some information please

Straight up now tell me
Have you really ever had a woman lover oh oh oh
Or is this thing between us just gonna be a first time try it, hit it and run
Straight up now tell me

Are you gonna leave me later for a male lover oh oh oh
For fame alone are you just leading me on

Can hardly believe I'm standing here still
Waiting for you to spill some small clue
I keep getting chills
Popping pills
When I see my love eyeing another guy
And I start thinkin'
Oh God what if it's true

Straight up now tell me
Have you really ever had a woman lover oh oh oh
Or is this thing between us just gonna be a first time try it, hit it and run
Straight up now tell me

Baby, please I'm beggin' you
Don't remain so damn hard to read
Stop playing hide and seek
With your true sexuality
And tell me
What's up with this list of boys and girls names
Are you straight, gay, or bi bi b-b-bi

Are you really into me
Into me me me
Just me
Ooh baby do you love him or do you love me

Straight up now tell me
Have you really ever had a woman lover oh oh oh
Or is this thing between us just gonna be a first time try it, hit it and run
Straight up now tell me
Are you really all that hot for me
Or am I just another one here to give you that staight look
Best understand I'm not the kind of girl
Made only to carter to your diva demands
Boy, oh boy, if you really wanna go on holding my hand
And being my man
I'm gonna need this information-please

Straight up now tell me
Have you really ever had a woman lover oh oh oh
Or is this thing between us just gonna be a first time try it, hit it and run
Straight up now tell me

Straight up now tell me
Have you really ever had a woman lover oh oh oh
Or is this thing between us just gonna be a first time try it, hit it and run
Straight up now tell me

I'm utterly speechless.... well done. I totally adore it. Mary xxx
thats nice poison.i like that one
I love this poem Poison, I agree with you totally, I know I have an angel or two, and meet other Angels quite often. I love being this age, now I'm able to recognize them and let them know. I believe everyone has a guardian Angel, Excellent poem once again Poison.--Melvina--
