Lyrics Post: “Express Yourself”

She’s one of the queens of her era, and will always hold a special place in my heart, Madonna, telling us all how it is…and we are so lucky for that…

Hoo!

Hoo!

Come on girls

Do you believe in love?

‘Cause I got something to say about it

And it goes something like this

Don’t go for second best, baby

Put your love to the test

You know, you know, you’ve got to

Make him express how he feels

And maybe then you’ll know your love is real

You don’t need diamond rings

Or eighteen karat gold

Fancy cars that go very fast

You know they never last, no no

What you need is a big strong hand

To lift you to your higher ground

Make you feel like a queen on a throne

Make him love you ’til you can’t come down

You’ll never come down

Don’t go for second best, baby

Put your love to the test

You know, you know, you’ve got to

Make him express how he feels

And maybe then you’ll know your love is real

Long-stem roses are the way to your heart

But he needs to start with your head

Satin sheets are very romantic

What happens when you’re not in bed?

You deserve the best in life

So if the time isn’t right, then move on

Second best is never enough

You’ll do much better, baby, on your own

Baby, on your own

Don’t go for second best, baby

Put your love to the test

You know, you know, you’ve got to

Make him express how he feels

And maybe then you’ll know your love is real

Express yourself

You’ve got to make him express himself

Hey, hey, hey, hey

So if you want it right now

Make him show you how

Express what he’s got

Oh baby, ready or not

And when you’re gone he might regret it

Think about the love he once had

Try to carry on, but he just won’t get it

He’ll be back on his knees

To express himself

You’ve got to make him express himself

Hey hey

What you need is a big strong hand

To lift you to your higher ground

Make you feel like a queen on a throne

Make him love you ’til you can’t come down

You’ll never come down

And when you’re gone he might regret it

Think about the love he once had

Try to carry on, but he just won’t get it

He’ll be back on his knees, so please

Don’t go for second best, baby

Put your love to the test

You know, you know, you’ve got to

Make him express how he feels

And maybe then you’ll know your love is real

Express yourself

You’ve got to make him express himself

Hey, hey, hey, hey

So if you want it right now

Make him show you how

Express what he’s got

Oh baby, ready or not

Express yourself

(You’ve got to make him)

So you can respect yourself

Hey, hey

So if you want it right now

Make him show you how

Express what he’s got

Oh baby, ready or not

Express yourself
