Baby (You've Got What It Takes)    (1960)

Well not, it takes more than a robin
To make the winter go
And it takes two lips of fire
To melt away the snow
Well, it takes two hearts a cookin'
To make a fire grow
And baby, you've got what it takes

You know it takes a lot of kissin'
To make a romance sweet
Ooh, it takes a lot of lovin'
To make my life complete
And it takes a lot of woman
To knock me off my feet
And baby, you've got what it takes

I say mmmmm, uh-huh-huh, mmmmm
You know you've got just what it takes

Because it takes more than an effort
To stay away from you
It takes more than a lifetime
To prove that I'll be true
But it takes somebody special
To make me say "I do"
And baby, you've got what it takes.

Lyrics by Clyde Otis, Murray Stein and Brook Benton.
