Baby take off your coat
Real slow
Take off your shoes
I'll take off your shoes
Baby, take off your dress
Yes, yes, yes

You can leave your hat on
You can leave your hat on
You can leave your hat on

Go over there, turn on the lights
All the lights
Come back here, stand on that chair
Get up woman, that's right
Raise your arms up in the air
And now shake 'em

You give me reason to live
You give me reason to live
You give me reason to live
You give me reason to live

Sweet darling
(You can leave your hat on)
Just leave your hat on, girl
A little wild man
(You can leave your hat on)
Leave your hat on
(You can leave your hat on)
(You can leave your hat on)

Suspicious minds are talkin'
They're tryin' to tear us apart
They don't believe in this love of mine
They don't know what love is

They don't know what love is
They don't know what love is
They don't know what love is
I know what love is

And baby, put it my way
(You can leave your hat on)
And just leave your hat on now
They don't wanna
(You can leave your hat on)
Won't you do that for me, babe?
(You can leave your hat on)
And just leave your hat on, girl
(You can leave your hat on)

hey, it's pretty cool that listeners are rating a tune that's never been played. What's up with that?
 

Got the album.
This is a far cry from You've Got A Friend In Me.

I like Joe's version better, still this is an 8 to me cuz Randy Newman is cool.  Long Live RP!!
 
Love this. Joe Cocker's  is even better - far more sexy. But Tom Jone's version nails it - he understands sex appeal in a way that Randy must just shake his head at and that Joe only dreamt of. But I love this original for even existing.
An outstanding album!
It seems to me the musical stylings of Mr. Newman would be a perfect fit for the quirky, eclectic tunes here on RP, and yet, he is very rarely played. I always appreciate whenever I hear one of his songs played, though.

But in the movie, they used Joe Cocker's cover of the song. Newman's is way better. When he sings "Raise your arms up to the air...now shake 'em!" Newman makes it clearer what he wants shaken.
Anyone that\'s a movie nut has seen 9 1/2 weeks. This song is in there.. and Ms. Bassinger does a strip tease for Mr. Rourke to this song... HOT HOT HOT! And yes they played to the song\'s lyrics.. she left her hat on till the last. :eek: :D
