That's the price I'm willing to pay
I'm gonna make you stand and deliver
And give me love in the old-fashion way

And I feel it coming down the track

Darlin', I'll do anything

Ooo, can I touch you?
And do the things that lovers do
Ooo, wanna hold you

BRIEF HISTORY OF BILLY OCEAN
Billy Ocean is one of the 70s and 80s British-based recording artists and international music stars. His full name is Leslie Sebastian Ocean. He was born in 21 January 1950 in Trinidad and Tobago to Grenadian parents. He was the most popular British-based R&B singer-songwriter of the early to mid-80s. Some sources said that he got his name from the Ocean Estate, Stepney, where he was living at his music career time. He left Caribbean at the age of eight with his family to Romford, London, England.

His father was a musician too. He made his first single in 1972 on Spark Records, but his greatest success did not come until 1984 when he made his Caribbean Queen debut. The song won him a Grammy In 1985 for Best Male R&B Vocal Performance. In February 1986, Ocean's video of "When the Going Gets Tough, the Tough Get Going" was banned by BBC, owing to non-union members. Billy Ocean is not fully out of entertainment world.
