I am the king of the rappin' thing
But love, is really my game
And when it comes, to gettin' the finest chicks
I put all the other rappers to shame
The ladies scream when I'm on the scene
They love my two eighty Z
And when the party's over they stand in line
To go home with the Master G, ha ha ha

This is for the lover in you
The lover in you, I know she's in there somewhere
This is for the lover in you
Ah for the lover in you
Whoa honey, can't you see, yeah
It's the lover, in me
Who wants to make love
To the lover in you
The lover in you
To the lover in you

Don't be misled, by what I said
There's one thing beyond a doubt
Inside every rapper there's a lover
Who's tryin', to get out
So let's make a start, unlock your heart
This is, the place to be
And as we're movin', to the music groovin'
You'll bring out, the lover in me, sing it gang

This is for the lover in you, the lover in you
I know she's in there somewhere
This is for the lover in you
Ah for the lover in you
Whoa honey, can't you see, yeah
It's the lover, in me
Who wants to make love
To the lover in you
The lover in you
To the lover in you
Won't you give her a shout
Tell her to come on out
Got a job, for her to do
You know I'm talkin' about
The lover in you
The lover in you, the lover in you
The lover in you, the lover in you

If there's a party in any town
You know the Sugarhill Gang, will throw down
With yours truly, the Master G
And the brothers who rap so sensuously
It's got to be mellow
Got ta be right
We are the original Rapper's Delight
And love, is what we're talkin' about
So c'mon gang, ah let's take it on out
Everybody now

This is for the lover in you (well), the lover in you
I know she's in there somewhere
This is for the lover in you (well)
For the lover in you
This is for the lover in you, the lover in you
I know she's in there somewhere

For the lover in you

I want to be your L, O, V-E-are
Ah let me be your L, O, V-E-are
Gotta be your L, O, V-E-R

So this is for the lover in you, the lover in you
I know she's in there somewhere
This is for the lover in you
For the lover in you
Won't you give her a shout
Tell her to come on out
