Lyrics

Don't have to humble
yourself to me
I ain't your judge
or your king
Baby, you know
I ain't no Queen of Sheba
We may not even
have our dignity
This could be just
a powerful thing
Baby we can choose
you know we ain't no amoeba

Are you ready
for the thing called love
Don't come from me and you
It comes from up above
I ain't no porcupine
Take off your kid gloves
Are you ready for the thing called love

I ain't some icon
carved out of soap
Sent here to
clean up your reputation
Baby, you know
you ain't no Prince Charming
We can live in fear
or act out of hope
For some kind of
peaceful situation
Baby, how come
the cry of love is so alarming

Are you ready
for the thing called love
Don't come from me and you
It comes from up above
I ain't no porcupine
Take off your kid gloves
Are you ready
for the thing called love

Ugly ducklings
don't turn into swans
And glide off down the lake
Whether your sunglasses
are off or on
You only see the world you make

Are you ready
for the thing called love
Don't come from me and you
It comes from up above
I ain't no porcupine
Take off your kid gloves
Are you ready for it
Are you ready
for the thing called love
Don't come from me and you
It comes from up above
I ain't no porcupine
Take off your kid gloves
Are you ready for it
Are you ready for love, baby
Ooh yeah babe
Are you ready for love
