Favorite Old School Jam #112

This song captures a situation most people, male or female, have experienced. You think you’ve made a new friend. He or she is looking for some benefits.

It has been covered by my girl Mariah Carey and was given the Robert Palmer but the original by Cherrelle is luminous. Check out the vintage video by clicking on my Myspace link to the right.

Didn’t mean to turn you on
by Cherrelle

Let you take me out
I knew what you were all about
But when I did
I wasn’t tryin’ to lead you on

Now you bring me home
And tell me goodnight’s
Not enough for you
I’m sorry baby
I didn’t mean to turn you on

You read me wrong
I wasn’t trying to lead you on
I want a friend
I didn’t mean to turn you on

I didn’t mean to turn you on

I know you
Expected a one night stand
When I refused
I knew you wouldn’t understand

Boy I told you twice
I was only tryin’ to be nice
Only tryin’ to be nice
Oh
I didn’t mean to turn you on
Oh I didn’t mean to turn you on

Turn you on

Tell me why should I
Feel guilty cause I won’t give
Guilty cause I won’t give in
I didn’t mean to turn you on

(repeat chorus)

You think that I’m a fool
Cause I wouldn’t play by your rules

(I didn’t mean to turn you on)

You don’t stand a chance
All I want to do is dance with you

(I didn’t mean to turn you on)

I told you twice
I was only tryin’ to be nice

(I didn’t mean to turn you on)

I loved you for a friend
But I guess this is the
End of our relationship
Cause I didn’t mean to turn you on

I didn’t mean to turn you on
Sorry.
