Etta James Wet Match Lyrics

sponsored links
I met this guy who kept bragging about how his lovemaking was goin to blow my mind
Well after the lovemaking I said:
I don't mean to embarrass you but listen...
Your love is like tryin to light a fire with a wet match
you won't even get a spark like that
Your love is like tryin to light a fire with a wet match
you won't even get a spark like that

You said you could always
get a woman excited
every time she mentioned your name
Said they call you good lovin
good lovin daddy, uh uh
ooh-ooh you s**y thing

I needed a lil lovin
couldn't wait to get you in the sack
I was so disappointed
I don't want you to ever come back
Hey!
Your love is like tryin to light a fire with a wet match
you won't even get a spark like that
Your love is like tryin to light a fire with a wet match
you won't even get a spark like that

You know the man was so embarrassed
that he didn't even show his face around here for a long time
hehe
Do you blame him?
Ladies beware, of those fast talkin men
They just ain't ready when you wanna have a lil fun.
Braggin bout how you'll sweep me off my feet
Couldn't even make me put a wrinkle in my sheets

Your love is like tryin to light a fire with a wet match
you won't even get a spark like that
Your love is like tryin to light a fire with a wet match
you won't even get a spark like that
