Come on girls
Do you believe in love?
'Cause I got something to say about it
And it goes something like this

Don't go for second best baby
Put your love to the test
You know, you know, you've got to
Make him express how he feels
And maybe then you'll know your love is real

You don't need diamond rings
Or eighteen karat gold
Fancy cars that go very fast
You know they never last, no, no

What you need is a big strong hand
To lift you to your higher ground
Make you feel like a queen on a throne
Make him love you till you can't come down

Don't go for second best baby
Put your love to the test
You know, you know, you've got to
Make him express how he feels
And maybe then you'll know your love is real

Long stem roses are the way to your heart
But he needs to start with your head
Satin sheets are very romantic
What happens when you're not in bed

You deserve the best in life
So if the time isn't right then move on
Second best is never enough
You'll do much better baby on your own

Don't go for second best baby
Put your love to the test
You know, you know, you've got to
Make him express how he feels
And maybe then you'll know your love is real

Express yourself
You've got to make him
Express himself
Hey, hey, hey, hey

So if you want it right now
Make him show you how
Express what he's got
Oh, baby ready or not

And when you're gone he might regret it
Think about the love he once had
Try to carry on but he just won't get it
He'll be back on his knees

To express himself
Express himself
Hey, hey

What you need is a big strong hand
To lift you to your higher ground
Make you feel like a queen on a throne
Make him love you till you can't come down

And when you're gone he might regret it
Think about the love he once had
Try to carry on but he just won't get it
He'll be back on his knees

So please, don't go for second best baby
Put your love to the test
You know, you know, you've got to
Make him express how he feels
And maybe then you'll know your love is real

Express yourself
You've got to make him
Express himself
Hey, hey, hey, hey

So if you want it right now
Make him show you how
Express what he's got
Baby ready or not

Express yourself
Respect yourself
Hey, hey

(So if you want it right now)
(Then make him show you how)
Express what he's got
Oh, baby ready or not

Express yourself
Respect yourself
Hey, hey

(So if you want it right now)
(Then make him show you how)
Express what he's got
Oh, baby ready or not

Express yourself
