Originally from Betty Davis' s/t album (1973). You can't top the sexiness of the attitude of this track. Funkalicious.
No I don't wanna love you Cause I know how you are That's why I've been staying away from you That's why I haven't called you Cause I know you could possess my body I know you could make me scrawl I know could have me shaking I know you could have me climbing walls
That's why I don't wanna love you
Cause I know how you are Sure you say you're right on and you're righteous But with me I'd know you'd be right off Cause you know I could possess your body too, don't cha? You know I could make you crawl
And just as hard as I'd fall for you, boy Well You know you'd fall for me harder That's why I don't wanna love you Cause I'd know what you'd do to my heart You'd scorch it just like a hot iron Leave me burning alone in the dark Cause I know you'd could make me suffer I know you could drive me mad I know you'd just take me in a circle And when it got real I know you'd disappear
That's why I ain't gonna love you
Cause I know you like to be in charge But with me you know you couldn't control me, don't cha? Cause you know I'd make you drop your guard Cause I'd have you eating your ego I'd make you pocket your pride And just as hard as I'd be loving you, boy Well you know you'd be loving me harder
That's why I don't wanna love you No no no I said I don't wanna love you No no no no no no I said I ain't gonna No no no I said I don't wanna No no no no no
"There is one testimonial about Betty Davis that is universal: she was a woman ahead of her time. [..] Betty not only wrote every song she ever recorded and produced every album after her first, but the young woman penned the tunes that got The Commodores signed to Motown" [source]
[23'45''sec] Interviewer: When you said you never got high in the 60s.. you really didn't get high.. at all? Betty Davis: No, I didn't get high at all. Interviewer: Why did you make that choice? Betty Davis: Because I didn't feel that I need it to Interviewer: Was it hard not to? Betty Davis: No, when everybody started to get high, I'd leave, it wasn't really difficult, I'd just leave.. because I.. didn't wanna be a drug, you know, or a party pooper, or.. someone that would be there observing.. then I'd just leave. What a classy woman. What a fcuking good taste for making amazing Music.
