        Oh no, not me baby
        what did I do to make you pick on me
        Oh no, what did I do, ah
        what did I say to make you come to me

        You could've said no
        a thousand times before
        You could've said less yes's
        and said more no's, but oh no

        Baby such a big shot, standing on a small spot
        why do opposites attract (opposites attract)
        Baby such a big shot, standing on a small spot
        why do opposites attract, (opposites attract) oh
        Baby such a big shot, standing on a small spot
        why do opposites attract, (woh, opposites attract) oh
        Baby such a big shot, standing on a small spot
        ooohhh

        But oh no, ah, here I go
        why did you do it, I'm in love again
        But oh no, not me baby
        why did we do it, I'm in love again

        You could've said no
        a thousand times before
        You could've said less yes's
        and said more no's, but oh no

        Baby such a big shot, standing on a small spot
        why do opposites attract, (opposites attract) oh
        Baby such a big shot, standing on a small spot
        why do opposites attract, (opposites attract) oh
        Baby such a big shot, standing on a small spot
        why do opposites attract, (woh, opposites attract) oh
        Baby such a big shot, standing on a small spot
        ooohhh, oh-oh

        You could've snapped your finger
        uncross your thighs and walk out the door girl
        You could've left home early
        but no, you wanted to stay and play, ooohhh, ooohhh
        You could've said less yes's (yeah-yeah-yeah)
        you could've said more no's
        But oh no, you had to stay, we're back in the parade
        of love's up's and down's and charade

        Baby such a big shot, standing on a small spot
        why do opposites attract (opposites attract)
        Baby such a big shot, standing on a small spot
        why do opposites attract, (opposites attract) woh
        Baby such a big shot, standing on a small spot
        ooohhh, woh, opposites attract (baby)

        Ooohhh, ah, oh yeah
        ah, ooohhh, woh, opposites attract
        Ah, ooohhh, ah, oh yeah
        ah, ooohhh, woh, opposites attract
        Ah, ooohhh, ah, oh yeah
        ooohhh-ooohhh, woh, opposites attract
        Ah, oh-oh, ah, oh yeah ...
