BRIEF DESCRIPTION

BILLY OCEAN/LOVER BOY/EUROPEAN MUSIC CULTURE
I don't know what you've got
But it plays with my emotions
I want you so much
Darling, I wanna hold you near
Want to whisper sweet and tender
In your ear

Can't stand the thought of you
With somebody else
Got to have your love, got to have it all to myself
I say, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah

Wanna be your lover, lover, mmm
Wanna be your lover, lover, lover boy
Lover, lover, yeah
Wanna be your lover, lover, lover boy

Too far gone, it's hard to stop
Baby, you're my dream in motion
And I won't give up
Ooh, teasing me with your fire
My finger's on the trigger
You're the one I desire

'Cause I get this feeling, feeling
From nobody else
Gotta have your tenderness all to myself
I say, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah

Wanna be your lover, lover, mmm
Wanna be your lover, lover, lover boy
Lover, lover, yeah
Wanna be your lover, lover, lover boy

Ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh, yeah

And I want you really
But the thing is there's nothing I can say
To stop you, darling, from running running away
Won't you stay, stay, stay?

Wanna be your lover, lover, mmm
Wanna be your lover, lover, lover boy
Lover, lover, yeah
I wanna be your love
(Ooh, ah, ooh, ah)

I gotta be your love
(Ooh, ah, ooh, ah)
I wanna be your love
(Ooh, ah, ooh, ah)

And I can stand it, baby, ooh
Ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh

BRIEF HISTORY OF BILLY OCEAN AS A CONTRIBUTOR TO EUROPEAN MUSIC CULTURE
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 the BBC, owing to non-union members. Billy Ocean is not fully out of entertainment world.
