When it comes to kissin’
I just got to keep insistin’
Oh, baby, you sure do swing
When it comes to kissin’
I just got to keep insistin’
Oh, daddy, you are the king
Baby, you’ve got me beat up and down
Inside out and across, oh yeah
But in the middle of the night
When the moon is shinin’ bright
You’re the boss

Talkin’ ’bout a-dancin’ and a-down home romancin’
Oh, daddy, you make the scene
Talkin’ ’bout a-dancin’ and a-down home romancin’
Oh, baby, you are the queen
Man, when push comes to shove
When it comes down to love, you’re the boss
Oh, but in the middle of the night
When the moon is shinin’ bright
You’re the boss
You’re the best of everything
You’re a peach
You’re a plum
You’re a diamond
You’re a pearl
You’re the best of everything
Oh, daddy, you’re my man
Oh, baby, you’re my girl

When it comes to knowin’ which way the wind is
blowin’
Oh, baby, you sure are wise
And when it comes to knowin’ which way the wind is blowin’
Oh, daddy, you take the prize
Baby, you’re a genius when it comes to cookin’ up some chili sauce
But in the middle of the night
When the moon is shinin’ bright
Oh, you’re the boss
You’re the boss
You’re the boss
You’re the boss

Oh, baby, you’re a genius when it comes to
cookin’ up some chili sauce
But in the middle of the night
When the moon is shinin’ bright
Oh, you’re the boss
Oh, when it comes to kissin’
I just got to keep insistin’
Oh, baby, you sure do swing
And when it comes to kissin’
I just got to keep insistin’
Oh you, daddy, you are the king
Oh, you’ve got me beat up and down
Inside out and across
But in the middle of the night
When the moon is shinin’ bright
You’re the boss
You’re the boss
You’re the boss
Oh, baby, you’re the boss
Oh, baby, you know I like it when you’re the boss
You know I like it when you say that I’m the boss
Or maybe tonight I’ll be the boss
And tomorrow night I’ll be the boss
You’re the boss
You like it when I’m the boss
