The Secret Garden

THE SECRET GARDEN
(Q.Jones, R.Temperton, S.Garrett & E.DeBarge)

This song was co-written with Rod Temperton, Quincy Jones and El DeBarge. We all actually sat in a room together, at Rod’s house writing this tune from early evening till very, very early the following morning. We knew that day – we had something really special. This song was finally recorded for Quincy’s “Back On The Block” CD. It was sung by the fabulous James Ingram, Barry White, El Debarge and Al B. Sure!

I WANNA READ YOUR MIND, KNOW YOUR DEEPEST FEELINGS
I WANNA MAKE IT RIGHT FOR YOU
BABY SHOW ME, LET ME SHARE THE MYSTERY
COME ON, COME ON, COME ON, COME ON
LISTEN TO YOUR HEART TONIGHT, ALRIGHT COME ON, COME OUT TONIGHT
I KNOW A MELODY, THAT WE COULD SING TOGETHER
I’VE GOT THE SECRET KEY TO YOU
LET’S MAKE MUSIC, HARMONIZING ECSTASY
COME ON, COME ON, COME ON, COME ON SING IT TO ME
HERE IN THE GARDEN, WHERE TEMPTATION FEELS SO RIGHT
PASSION CAN MAKE YOU FALL FOR WHAT YOU FEEL
IN THE GARDEN, WE CAN MAKE IT COME ALIVE
EVERY NIGHT, OH WOMAN – YOUR SECRET GARDEN
I NEED TO BE WITH YOU, LET ME LAY BESIDE YOU
DO WHAT YOU WANT ME TO, ALL NIGHT
GONNA HOLD YOU, OOH BABY CAN I TOUCH YOU THERE
COME ON, COME ON, COME ON, COME ON
I CAN KEEP YOU SATISFIED
COME ON, COME ON, COME ON, ALL NIGHT COME ON, COME OUT TONIGHT
I’LL TAKE GOOD CARE OF YOU, DO WHAT A MAN’S SUPPOSED TO DO
AND I’LL BE THERE FOR YOU, ALL THE TIME
LET YOUR HAIR DOWN, LET ME GET YOU IN THE MOOD
COME ON, COME ON, COME ON, COME ON, TAKE ME WITH YOU
INTO THE GARDEN, WHERE TEMPTATION FEELS SO RIGHT
PASSION CAN MAKE YOU FALL FOR WHAT YOU FEEL
IN THE GARDEN, WE CAN MAKE IT COME ALIVE
EVERY NIGHT, OH WOMAN, YOUR SECRET GARDEN
IF YA THINK I AM GONNA TAKE CARE OF YOU
IF YA THINK I, I GOT WHAT CHA NEED – SHO YA RIGHT
IF YA THINK I AM GONNA BE GOOD TO YOU
IF YA THINK I, I LIKE WHAT CHA DO – SHO YA RIGHT
