Songtekst

I'm M.C. Kat on the rap so mic it
Here's a little story and you're sure to like it
Swift and sly and I'm playing it cool
With my homegirl, Paula Abdul

Baby seems we never ever agree
You like the movies
And I like T.V.
I take things serious
And you take 'em light
I go to bed early
And I party all night

Our friends are sayin'
We ain't gonna last
Cuz I move slowly
And baby I'm fast

I like it quiet
And I love to shout
But when we get together
It just all works out

[Chorus:]
I take--2 steps forward
I take--2 steps back
We come together
Cuz opposites attract
And you know--it ain't fiction
Just a natural fact
We come together
Cuz opposites attract

Who'd a thought we could be lovers
She makes the bed
And he steals the covers

She likes it neat
And he makes a mess
I take it easy
Baby I get obsessed
She's got the money
And he's always broke
I don't like cigarettes
And I like to smoke

Things in common
Just ain't a one
But when we get together
We have nothin' but fun

I take--2 steps forward
I take--2 steps back
We come together
Cuz opposites attract
And you know--it ain't fiction
Just a natural fact
We come together
Cuz opposites attract

[Repeat Chorus]

Baby ain't it somethin'
How we lasted this long
You and me
Provin' everyone wrong
Don't think we'll ever
Get our differences patched

Don't really matter
Cuz we're perfectly matched

[Repeat Chorus Twice]

[Sung in the "ShutUp & Dance" version and in the "Opposites Attract" Music Video]

Nothing in common but this trust
I'm like a minus, she's like a plus
One going up, one coming down
But we seem to land on common ground

When things go wrong we make corrections
To keep things moving in the right direction
Try to fight it but I'm telling you Jack
Its true- this- Opposites Attract
