    Not sure if this is accurate, but I tried my best...

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

    I got a secret, don't know if i can keep it
    this has been burning inside, so long
    i put a spell on you, and kiss you down your toe
    do all the things that i've been dreaming of

    always so good for you, i'll make you all mature
    i'll take you to places since you've never been
    i know i won't be long, i know you are not that strong
    before you know it, you'd be knocking at my door
    and no matter how hard i try, it's you who can't deny
    i'll need you like the sun, baby you are the only one

    you are always on my mind, before you knew
    nobody loves you the way i do, no no no oh oh
    nobody loves you the way i do

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

    I hope this helps...

    Lightbulb A few corrections

    Hey guys. I've noticed the above lyrics are largely ok, but for a few missteps. Decided to re-post them the way I heard them. Do let me know if any of this is inaccurate. Enjoy.


    "I got a secret,
    Don't know if I can keep it
    It's been burning inside, so long

    I put a spell on you,
    I kiss it down your toe,
    Do all the things that I've been dreaming of

    I'll be so good for you,
    I'll make you love me too,
    I'll take you places that you['ve] never been

    I know it won't be long, I know you're not that strong,
    Before you know it, you'll be knocking at my door
    No matter how hard I try
    With you I can't deny
    I need you like the sun,
    Baby you're the only one

    You're always on my mind, long before you knew,
    And nobody loves you
    The way I do
    No no no, oh oh hey nobody loves you
    The way I do

    I'll be so good for you,
    I'll make you love me too
    I'll take you places that you['ve] never been

    I know it won't be long, I know you're not that strong
    Before you know it, you'll be knocking at my door
    No matter how hard I try
    With you I can't deny
    I need you like the sun,
    Baby you're the only one

    You always on my mind, long before you knew,
    And nobody loves you
    The way I do
    No no no, oh oh hey nobody loves you
    The way I do
    No no no, oh oh hey nobody loves you
    (Hey) Nobody loves you
    (Hey) Nobody loves you
    The way I do"

    Peace.

    Please pardon a mild disagreement but this is still not quite right. And I still have a problem with the second line of the second verse. "Down your toe" does not make sense and it doesn't agree with what I hear.

    Here is a video in high quality resolution. The verse that I still question begins at 1:45.
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gf6RXA-jKd8

    This is my take on the lyrics with the one line still incomplete.

    I got a secret
    Don't know if I can keep it
    It's been burning inside
    So long

    I'll put a spell on you
    I'll kiss? .......?
    And do all the things
    That I've been dreaming of

    I'll be so good for you
    I'll make you love me too
    I'll take you places
    That you've never been

    I know it won't be long
    I know you're not that strong
    Before you know it
    You'll be knocking at my door

    No matter how hard I try
    It's you I can't deny
    I need you like the sun
    Baby you're the only one

    You're always on my mind
    Boy if only you knew
    And nobody loves you
    The way I do
    Mmm mmm no oh oh oh
    Nobody loves you
    The way I do

    I'll be so good for you
    I'll make you love me too
    I'll take you places
    That you've never been

    I know it won't be long
    I know you're not that strong
    Before you know it
    You'll be knocking at my door

    No matter how hard I try
    It's you I can't deny
    I need you like the sun
    Baby you're the only one

    You're always on my mind
    Boy if only you knew
    And nobody loves you
    The way I do
    Mmm-mmm no oh oh oh
    Nobody loves you
    The way I do

    Mmm mmm no oh oh oh
    Nobody loves you
    Ain't nobody loves you
    Ain't nobody loves you
    The way I do

    Except for the one line that I still can't decipher, this is exactly the way I would want to phrase and sing this song

    are you a singer/songwriter yourself, just like myself,lol! That would be fun

    To me it sounds like:


    I got a spell on you
    I AM KISING DOWN YOUR TOE.....

    After several hearings, still don't hear anything different


    On the other hand: check this link:http://www.thelyricarchive.com/song/...he-Way-I-Do%29

    Thank you amaryn for listening and posting. No, I do wish that I had talent to write, sing and play, but no I'm just a lover of good music. I did some singing when I was a kid, in drama and chorus and school plays, but that's the extent of my "career" in music So you're a writer, do you perform too?

    Btw I also want to thank the OP zebius and others for bringing this song to light in this forum. This topic is almost 3 years old but it's the only discussion I've found on this wonderful song.

    Unfortunately amaryn I am still not satisfied that that is the correct phrase,, and the link you posted was the first imperfect lyrics that I found when I googled this song. Sorry but for me that just does not fit with the quality of other phrase constructs in that song. I also think she could just as easily be saying "door" rather than "toe"

    I have written to Honeyroot themselves on another site so now I'm waiting to see if one of those gentlemen will respond. If they do I will certainly post that result here....

    I just replied to your post in another topic but of course it's more appropriate here. Your suggestion sounds as good as anything I've heard so far! That allusion fits as well with the rest of the lyrics as anything I can think of. Thank you very much for taking the time to help!

    The way I do

    Except for the one line that I still can't decipher, this is exactly the way I would want to phrase and sing this song

    Dear Love thewayIdo:

    I am listening with an American ear. The line I hear is a "play" on a colloquial phrase [although this singer does not sound American to me] called "kiss & tell". This long ago meant when a boy pursued a girl and she finally let him kiss her, he would go off and tell everybody (his friends especially) about it; then the girl would be angry because he was more concerned about bragging to his buddies than truly caring about her and her feelings. As American society got looser in its morals, it came to mean even romantic contact all the way to full sexual conduct . . . and the guy would tell . . . and the girl would be mad. The singer is making a 'play' on this phrase as a sort of 'tease' to the man she wants.

    I hope this helps.

    Thank you Frankie because that sounds equally good! Yes I believe that part of the issue is that (as you said) the vocalist is not a native American and so there is a small influence of another language... But the lyrics themselves are very American I would say, so I also appreciate the way you explained it. Maybe there is also still the chance that Honeyroot will reply to my inquiry and confirm either your or Mixalopoulos' suggestion. But I am now satisfied that we have not just 1 but 2 much more reasonable alternatives! For myself I hope you won't mind if I say that I'm still not quite sure enough to make a wager on one or the other

    Also thank you for confirming my other changes!

    You're welcome! Admittedly, Mixalopoulos is rarely (if ever) wrong! Still, I hear "kiss and tell you, too," but that doesn't make perfect sense in context of the song either. Another option might be that she's singing: "I kiss and tell you to / do all the things .... " (still accounting for the play on 'kiss & tell') but makes the sentence go on to actually mean, 'I kiss and tell you to do all the things I've been dreamin' of,' which fits.

    However . . . before the phrase "...do all the things" "AND" comes first.

    The only other option is if that 'word' is not "and" . . . rather it' a little "Uh!" as a sexy exclamation. Then it would make perfect sense!! "I kiss and tell you to, uh! do all the things I've been dreamin' of." This theory has a lot of "ifs"!

    Default too many if's , Frankie

    Frankie, that's a lovely Twinkling Theory you put down on paper there, and I sat here gigling to myself (allow me, we know eachother) but no, I don't think this "uh" is the answer.
    "Kissing down your toe" sounds very sexy and daring, but who would put such an awkward line in such a song?
    One doesn't put a spell on anyone that way either

    I believe she's singing:

    I'll put a spell on you
    A kiss and I will tell,
    And do all the things I've been....

    Well, she got a secret, the secret is that she put a spell on him and she will tell with a kiss.
