There's things that you guess And things that you know There's boys that you can trust And girls that you don't There's little things you hide And little things that you show Sometimes you think you're gonna get it But you don't and that's just the way it goes. It's playing on my mind It's dancing on my soul It's taken so much time So why don't you just let me go? I want your sex I want your love I want your sex I want your sex, sex Ow. It's natural It's chemical Let's do it It's logical habitual Can we do it? It's sensual But most of all Sex is something that we should do Sex is something for me and you.
Released as a single in June , it was the third hit from the soundtrack to Beverly Hills Cop II and the first single from Michael's debut solo album Faith. It peaked at number two in the US and number three in the UK, and was a top five single in many other countries. The song's radio airplay on the BBC was restricted to post- watershed hours due to concerns that it might promote promiscuity and could be counterproductive to contemporary campaigns about AIDS awareness. The song has three separate parts dubbed "Rhythms".
