For Verse - Repeat Tim's Main Rhythm, 
Nick adds a random slide towards the end

Lyrics: 
"I like the way you keep it from me, woah 
I like the way you move in front of me, yeah 
Just enough contact to make me come back 
So many other girls just make my mind slack 
And I like the way you give it to me, yeah 

You're in front, I'm behind 
Walking down a corridor 
The way you're moving yourself 
That makes me want you more 

I like the way you keep it from me, yeah"

Lyrics:
"I like the way you keep it from me, woah 
I like the way you move in front of me, yeah 
Just enough contact to make me come back 
So many other girls just make my mind slack 
And I like the way you give it to me, yeah 

Tight jeans and the seams 
Snake around your body type 
The way they hug, the way they snug 
The way they fit you right 

I like the way you keep it from me, yeah"
