The Way I See Boyz II Men


I was listening to Spotify radio on the subway a couple days ago and Boyz II Men's "I'll Make Love To You", came on. It's a song I've heard many times before and one I really enjoy, but when I heard it the other day, I had a different take on it.

For those of you who haven't heard the song, here's a link to the music video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fV8vB1BB2qc. You should definitely give it a listen before you keep reading, it helps if you can kinda "sing" Boyz II Men's lines. 

Also, if you want to take the advanced class, you can have Boyz II Men sing their "lines", and then read the lines of the "Woman" in the corresponding empty spaces. That may be a little hard, and might work better after you've already read it once or twice (or 15 times) on your own. 

Anyway, as I listened to the song I started to imagine Boyz II Men (who is just one person for the sake of this scene) singing this song to a woman they had brought over. 

I think the scene would go a little something like this:

Boyz II Men
Close your eyes, make a wish
And blow out the candlelight...

Woman
This is so romantic.
I'm really happy you invited me over.

B2M
For tonight is just your night
We're gonna celebrate...

Woman
It feels so good to hear you say that. 
We deserve a little bit of a celebration.

B2M
Pour the wine. Light the fire.
Girl, your wish is my command...

Woman
No other men would do this for me. 
They just want sex all the time.

B2M
I submit to your demands
I'll do anything, girl you need only ask...

Woman
I want to go to Paris with you. 
I want to introduce you to my parents.
I want to bring you to my sister's baby shower.

B2M
I'll make love to you
Like you want me to...

Woman
What?

B2M
And I'll hold you tight
Baby all through the night
I'll make love to you
When you want me to...

Woman
It's not the timing of it. It's more that
 I didn't wish for that. 

B2M
And I will not let go
'Till you tell me to...

Woman
That's REALLY creepy.

B2M
Girl relax, let's go slow...

Woman
I would love to go slow. If you promise 
to go slow, I promise to try to relax.

B2M
I ain't got no where to go...

Woman
I do! I have work in the morning!

B2M
I'm just gonna concentrate on you
Girl are you ready? It's gonna be a long night...

Woman
What happened to taking it slow?
I kinda want to leave...

B2M
Throw your clothes on the floor
I'm gonna take my clothes off too...

Woman
Your clothes have been off this entire time!
I was gonna say something - it's a bit off-putting.

B2M
I've made plans to be within you...

Woman
Are you fucking hearing yourself?

B2M
Girl whatever you ask me, you know I could do...

Woman
Could you put on pants? Could 
you ask about my day?

B2M
I'll make love to you
Like you want me to...

Woman
Nope.

B2M
And I'll hold you tight
Baby all through the night
I'll make love to you 
When you want me to...

Woman
I feel this has taken a turn for the worse.
I actually just gonna go home.

B2M
And I will not let go
Till you tell me to...

Woman
Ok. I'm telling you to. Please let go of me.

B2M
Baby tonight is your night
And I will do you right...

Woman
We've passed that point. I'm not even
wearing panties - I was all about it. Then you 
started singing the creepiest song ever.

B2M
Just make a wish on your night
Anything that you ask 
I will give you the love of you life, your life, your life...

Woman
I think that's the problem. You assume that my wish
is for you to fuck me all night. Who told you that I 
would wish for that? It's ridiculous. 

B2M
I'll make love to you
Like you want me to...

Woman
And I'm leaving. Thank you so much. 
I know where the door is.

B2M
And I will not let go
Till you tell me to
And I'll hold you tight
Baby, all through the night
I'll make love to you
When you want me to...
