A sensual homage to a classy sexy woman who the singer is encouraging to join him in bed.

Let's take our time tonight, girl Above us all the stars are watchin' There's no place I'd rather be in this world Your eyes are where I'm lost in Underneath the chandelier We're dancin' all alone There's no reason to hide What we're feelin' inside Right now! So baby let's just turn down the lights And close the door Oooh I love that dress But you won't need it anymore No you won't need it no more Let's just kiss 'til we're naked, baby Versace on the floor Oooh take it off for me, for me, for me, for me now, girl Versace on the floor Oooh take it off for me, for me, for me, for me now, girl

A rich laid back 16th R&B groove reminiscent of Luther Vandross and Boys To Men.

A well-crafted memorable melody with enough range and sweep to allow Mars to fully showcase his expressive voice.

Rich with numerous 7TH, 9TH, and complex substitute chords.

A free floating synth piano figure over a pad of synth strings with some fancy chord work.

Meticulously crafted R&B styling with a few Michael Jackson sounds as well as some sophisticated smooth jazz touches.

Mars is at the top form in this sexy emotive romantic genre.
