Contact Contact 
Huh huh huh huh hoo huh yeah 
You've been avoiding me 
Like a cat trying to dodge a dog 
I never see ya shine 
You're as cold as the London fog 
You claim you want my love 
Well I wouldn't know by the way you behave 
If you want to feel the thrill of my touch 
You better come out of your cave 

It's so perplexing 
Why you fight it won't you try it 
Love's electric 
Turn me on and see 

Love is a contact sport 
You gotta move in time 
If you want to do it right 
Here I am 
Love is a contact sport 
You gotta act untamed 
If you want to play the game 
So grab my hand, SLAM! 

I hate to sound aggressive 
But I'm tired of waiting for your move 
Cut the formalities 
Cause you've got a few things to prove 
If you really want my love 
I need to feel it down deep from within 
Don't make me wait too long 
I'm ready now come and stroke my skin 

Well all this talking 
Worthless chatter just don't matter 
Time for stalkin' 
Come get next to me 


Hey boy, 
Why dontcha come on over 
So we can make that contact 
Contact you dare 

It's so perplexing 
Why you fight it won't you try it 
Love's electric 
Turn me on and see
