hmm, tough one. Maybe the song "I Can Give You More" by LL Cool J (off the album Radio)?

Lyrics:

I seen this girl, walkin down the block
I said, "WAIT!"
"Yo baby, you wanna come to my crib?"
"Have some donuts and milk?"
"Listen to a pop tune maybe?"

Please be his ex and be my bride
Don't blame it on yourself, sweet thing, you tried
Love you claimed to share just wasn't there
You're too good for that, and it wasn't fair
Love's taken its toll, your heart he stole
You was fooled by the face of a phoney role
But I'll take up the slack, support you, baby
Now the knight in shiny armor can only be me
I cry out your name as you hold his hand
If you're not mine soon, girl, my soul is damned
I'm lookin out the window at the stormy rain
And the rush of the water makes my eyes drain
All alone in the room, and it's makin me sad
Fantasize of the love we could have had
Cause I never met anyone like you before
And I can give you more

I pour wine for two, even though it's just me
I tried to reach you, but blind men don't see
Your man is the devil, but he gave you a ring
So you believe you saw an innocent angel sing
You're the type that ignores the destiny of two
It's not Romeo and Juliet, it's me and you
You're bein handicapped by a Don Juan rap
You can hope I disappear, girl, but I'll be back
Cause I never met anyone like you before
And I can give you more
Yes girl, I never met anyone like you before
And I can give you more

The time has come, the decision's yours
This super love story ain't workin no more
Can't you understand that my love spans
Higher and further than any man's
You're lookin a gift horse right in the mouth
This time hear me out, I don't care if you pout
You're my only desire, I fight to the death
And I'ma scream your name when I breathe my last breath
Ain't gettin on my knees, but I'm oh so close
To our love I toast, all he does is boast
Cause I never met anyone like you before
And I can give you more

A knock on the door and a tap on the glass
Tells me you see it my way at last
You used to reject me, now you wanna kiss me
He called you up and said, "Yo baby, why you diss me?"
Meanwhile made romance on the sea shore
You want more of what you used to ignore
During this love affair, girl, it gets steamy
Three nights in a row, and you still wanna see me
Make love at night, coffee in the morn'
I be the only blanket that's keepin you warm
Cause I never met anyone like you before
And I can give you more

I hoot in the morning to the crack of sunlight
But my agony continues till it reaches night
Sweet image of your face appears on the wall
And the scene is so eerie I run through the hall
I look at the sky, then I search for the moon
Realize it's 3 o'clock in the afternoon
So I dress to impress, exit the house
Go up to the school and watch the kids come out
In the middle of the court yard there you stand
With the man who's deceiving ya, holding your hand
Cause I never met anyone like you before
And I can give you more

You're the goddess of light, the queen of seduction
You won't get used if you follow my instructions
Your scram my hand, feel the sweat on my palm
Make love to a man and not a cheap Don Juan
And that'll be eroticism, highs die down
You will find your best friend finally is found
I caress ya at night like a virgin in white
Cause the new world I found is oh so tight
And tender and young, soft and wet
It's hotter than any fantasy could get
Cause I never met anyone like you before
And I can give you more



edit... Some other songs that come to mind, but I have not looked deeply into are:

"Float On" by Stetsasonic (Album: In Full Gear)
"Jane" by EPMD (Album: Strictly Business)
"Treat Her Like a Prostitute" and/or "Teenage Love" by Slick Rick (Album: The Great Adventures of Slick Rick)
"A B*tch Iz a B*tch" and/or "I Ain't Tha 1" by N.W.A. (Album: Straight Outta Compton, maybe some others too)
"Butter" by A Tribe Called Quest (Album: Low End Theory) questionable
"Beautiful But Deadly" by The D.O.C. (Album: No One Can do it Better)

Sunshine of Your Love ~Cream

Love Shack ~B52s

Probably anything by Michael Bolton

Greatest Love of All ~Whitney Houston

Those all seem pretty cheesey. Is that along the right lines, or cheesier?

Edit: Oops...missed the requirement for rap/R&B on the first read.
Would Crazy in Love by Beyonce work, or is that more Pop than you're looking for?

Clarification, please, Greg. Do you mean an existing song, or do you want original lyrics?

Roses are red,
Violets are blue,
I've got a stapler in my pocket,
Oh wait, I don't own a stapler.

...they'll melt like butter.

how about 50 cents:
"loved you like a fat kid loves cake."

that's pretty classy.

I can't help on the R&B/Rap side, but here are a couple of suggestions:

It's not sappy, it actually kicks ass, but "There's a Light That Never Goes Out" by the Smiths is a pretty funny "love song."

[chorus]
And if a double-decker bus
Crashes into us
To die by your side
Is such a heavenly way to die
And if a ten-ton truck
Kills the both of us
To die by your side
Well, the pleasure - the privilege is mine
[/chorus]

Then there's B-52's "Strobe Light." Classic stuff for a wedding...

That doesn't count - no one listens to Cream for the lyrics (therefore Cream's songs have no lyrics).

Endless Love - Lionel Richie & Diana Ross

My love,
There's only you in my life
The only thing thats bright

My first love,
You're every breath that I take
You're every step I make

And i
(i-i-i-i-i)
I want to share
All my love with you
No one else will do...

And your eyes
Your eyes, your eyes
They tell me how much you care
Ooh yes, you will always be
My endless love

Two hearts,
Two hearts that beat as one
Our lives have just begun

Forever
(ohhhhhh)
I'll hold you close in my arms
I can't resist your charms

And love
Oh, love
I'll be a fool
For you,
I'm sure
You know I don't mind
Oh, you know I don't mind

cause you,
You mean the world to me
Oh
I know
I know
I've found in you
My endless love

Oooh-woow
Boom, boom
Boom, boom, boom, boom, booom
Boom, boom, boom, boom, boom

Oooh, and love
Oh, love
I'll be that fool
For you,
I'm sure
You know I don't mind
Oh you know-
I don't mind

And, yes
You'll be the only one
cause no one can deny
This love I have inside
And I'll give it all to you
My love
My love, my love
My endless love

One could leave out the boom, boom, boom. :biggrin:

Lionel Richie has a lot of 'sappy' songs, but there are times when they say the right thing.

--------------------

And I love you
When we are together
The moments I cherish
With every beat of my heart
To touch you to hold you
To feel you to need you
Theres nothing to keep us apart

(from Three Times a Lady, also by Richie)

here you go...

It's a 7-11
Do you wanna take a walk outside
If you want a burrito
You can have another bite of mine
It could last you forever
If you're not waiting for the call
Come on over tonight
Come on over this morning
Momma says, “You only fall in love once.â€
And you could leave here tomorrow
You know you wanted to have more
They were looking for answers
And if you never had them score
Yeah, it could last you forever
Just sit here in the store
Come on over tonight
Come on over this morning
Momma says, “You only fall in love once.â€
And you think you know that they'll always be there
You never had the time
I want you to be fine
It's a 7-11
Do you want to take a walk outside
If you want a burrito
You can have another bite of mine
It could last you forever
If you're still waiting on that call
Come on over tonight
Come on over this morning
Momma says, “You only fall in love once.â€

Wait, wait, wait, I got it! When you are looking for the highest quality lyrics out there in the rap nation, who else do you turn to......

My man 50 cent piece:

Tonight's the night, you can fall in love
You can call your mama right now, tell her you met a thug
I pop a lot of **** cause I can back it up
My left stroke's the death stroke

I'll break it down for you now, baby it's simple
If you be a nympho, I'll be a nympho
In the hotel or in the back of the rental
On the beach or in the park, it's whatever you into
Got the magic stick, I'm the love doctor


You tell me what says wedding more than a verse by my man 50?...:uhh:

Gag me!

Linda Ronstadt teamed up with Aaron Neville to do this one:

Don't know much

Look at this face I know the years are showing
Look at this life I still don't know where it's going
I don't much but I know I love you
That may be all I need to know

Look at these eyes they never seen what matters
Look at these dreams so beaten and so battered
I don't much but I know I love you
That may be all I need to know

So many questions still left unanswered
So much I've never broken through
And when I feel you near me sometimes I see so clearly
That only truth I'll never know is me and you

Look at this man so blessed with inspiration
Look at this soul still searching for salvation
I don't much but I know I love you
That may be all I need to know

I don't much but I know I love you
That may be all I need to know
I don't much but I know I love you
That may be all there is to know
_______________________________________
But perhaps the best one is by Boz Skaggs, off his "Come on Home" CD. One of my close friends used it as her song for the bride and groom's first dance at their reception. I brought the CD to work and played it as we did product photography, and she ran out and bought a copy right away. There's not a bad cut on that CD.

8. I've Got Your Love

I don't need no fortune
I'll tell you the reason why
I've got more than anything
Money can buy
I've got your love love love
That's more than anything
Money can buy

Cause money can't buy that kind of love no

I was lost
I was drifting
That I won't deny
Till you gave your heart to me
Said let's give love a try
I've got your love love love
Here to hold me
Against the tide
Against the tide

You know a man sworn to nothing
Can make you wanna cry
I came to my senses
Baby dry your eyes
I've got your love love love
That's more than anything
Any old anything
Mmmmm

I was lost
I was drifting
That I won't deny
Till you gave your heart to me
Saying let's give love a try
I've got your love love love
Here to hold me
Against the tide
Against the tide
Against the tide

Got love
Got love more than anything
Hey hey hey hey
Money can buy
Hey money can buy

Verse One:I like your little sexy style

I wanna get you to myself

and do the things we do
baby there is something that I need from you

Chorus:
Baby turn around
And let me see that sexy body go
Bump bump bump
(That is all I wanna see baby show me, show me)
Baby turn around
And let me see that sexy body go
Bump bump bump
(The way you throwin that thang at me I can't take it baby)

Verse 2:
I love the way you teasin me
But u gotta start pleasin me
While we're on this dance floor
You whippin it round and round
I like the way you put it down
You makin me Fein for more
Put ya 2-way next to mine
Baby hit me anytime
You and me behind closed doors.
You about to be my main squeeze
Take trips buy shinny things
Gurl jus come with me
And we gonna move it to the dance floor babe

Chorus:

P. Diddy Rap

Plans to take up mami
Get on da dance floor

Let's ride I'm ya Clyde u can be mah Bonnie
See you the type for me mami

Girl now bring it to me bump dat

If it's not too late -
If I could save time in a bottle
The first thing that I'd like to do
Is to save every day
Till eternity passes away
Just to spend them with you

If I could make days last forever
If words could make wishes come true
I'd save every day like a treasure and then,
Again, I would spend them with you

But there never seems to be enough time
To do the things you want to do
Once you find them
I've looked around enough to know
That youre the one I want to go
Through time with

If I had a box just for wishes
And dreams that had never come true
The box would be empty
Except for the memory
Of how they were answered by you

But there never seems to be enough time
To do the things you want to do
Once you find them
I've looked around enough to know
That you're the one I want to go
Through time with

Letra :

I know your eyes in the morning sun
I feel you touch me in the pouring rain
And the moment that your wander far from me
I wanna feel you in my arms again
And you come to me on a summer breeze
Deep me warm in your love
Then you softly leave

And It´s me you need to show

How deep is your love, is your love
How deep is your love
I really mean to learn
´Cause We´re living in a world of fools
Breaking us domn
When they all should let us be
We belong to you and me

I believe in you
You know the door to my very soul
You´re the light in my deepest darkest hour
You´re my savior when i fall
And you may not think I carre for you
When you know down inside that
I really do
And it´s me your need to show

How deep is your love...

And you come to me on a summer breeze
Keep me warm in your love
Then you softly leave
And it´s me to need to show

How deep is your love...
I win. <text unlimited>
