We don’t have much in common
We don’t think the same
I prefer the sunshine
And you like the rain
I’d rather read a book
While you watch TV
But in the bedroom
We have Chemistry

You are conservative
I’m a liberal
I am always on the move
You keep standing still
You have few close friends
I like everyone I meet
But we dance so well
When we’re between the sheets

I like my food spicy
You prefer it mild
Your manner is mature
I act like a child
You watch your money closely
I am frivolous
But we meld into one
When I touch you like this

Opposites attract, or so they say
You and I are as different as night and day
But when we get alone and we start to play
I know I wouldn’t want you any other way

I like getting lost
While you need a map
I am restless all day
And you take a nap
I like to laugh at my movies
You’d rather shed a tear
But at the end of the day
We must have our bodies near

So watch your TV
I’ll go read a book
I’ll order take out
And you can cook
Go out with your friends
I’ll go make some new ones
But when the sun goes down
We’ll get together for some fun
