He like to frequent this club down up on 36th
Pimps and thangs like to hang outside and cuss for kicks

Talking to no one in particular, they say "the baddest I am tonight"
Four letter words are seldom heard with such dignity and bite
All the poets and the part time singers always hang inside
Live music from a band plays a song called "Soul Psychodelicide"

The song's a year long and had been playing for months
When he walked into the place
No one seemed to care, an introverted this-is-it look
On most of their faces

Up on the mic repeating two words over and over again
Was this woman he had never noticed before he lost himself in the
Articulated manner in which she said them
These two words, a little bit behind the beat
I mean just enough to turn you on
For every time she said the words another one of his doubts were gone

Should he try to rap with her? Should he stand and stare?
No one else was watching her, she didn't seem to care
So over and over, she said the words till he could take no more (no more)
He dragged her from the stage and together they ran through the back door

In the alley over by the curb he said, "Tell me, what's your name?"
She only said the words again and it started to rain (rain, rain, rain)
Two words falling between the drops and the moans of his condition
Holding someone is truly believing there's joy in repetition

There's joy in repetition
There's joy in repetition
There's joy in repetition
There's joy in repetition

She said, "Llove me, love me"
W hat she say? She say, "Love me, love me"

(Joy) Why don't you love me baby
(Joy) Why can't you love me baby
(Joy) come on and love me baby, joy in repetition
(Joy) All right
(Joy) All right
(Joy) All right
(Joy) All right
(Joy) All my wishes add up to one
(Joy) Love me
(Joy) Love me
(Joy) Love me
(Joy) Love me
Love me, Love me, joy, joy, joy in repetition
Joy, joy in repetition
Joy, joy (love me) in repetition
Love me, love, joy, joy, joy in repetition
Joy, and I'm gonna say it again, joy, joy, and I'm gonna say it again
Joy, I'd like 2 go way up high and say, Love me, joy
I'll say Love me, joy
Joy, joy in repetition, joy in repetition
There's joy in repetition
