You take a little bit of me
And a whole lot of you
Add it up together
And here’s what you’re gonna do
You gotta mix it up quick
And it’ll blow up on this spot
I got a tell ya’ that the place is getting hot

[Chorus:]
Now mix it up
Uh just mix it up
What the sum of all the parts
When you add it up
Make much more than what you had
I tell you what
It’s like mad
The baddest thing that you’ve ever had, uh

[Bridge]
I was never too good at math anyway
But when you add it up it comes out more I have to say
A lot of people looking for what you and me have found
And now it seems no one’s around, uh

A little bit of me
And a whole lot of you
Add it up together
And here’s what you’re gonna do
You gotta mix it up quick
And it’ll blow up on this spot
I got a tell ya’ that the place is getting hot

[Chorus]
Now mix it up
Uh just mix it up
What the sum of all the parts
When you add it up
Make much more than what you had
I tell you what
It’s like mad
The baddest thing that you’ve ever had

We’re just two misfits
That no one else gets
Everyone else in the place
Became a silhouette
Soon as there was you
It all comes in view
On my guitar
I see the sparks
When we have those conversations in the dark

[Bridge]
I was never too good at math anyway
But when you add it up it comes out more I have to say
A lot of people looking for what you and me have found
And now it seems no one’s around

A little bit of me
And a whole lot of you
Add it up together
And here’s what you’re gonna do
You gotta mix it up quick
And it’ll blow up on this spot
I got a tell ya’ that the place is getting hot

[Chorus]
Now mix it up
Uh just mix it up
What the sum of all the parts
When you add it up
Make much more than what you had
I tell you what
It’s like mad
The baddest thing that you’ve ever had

We’re just two misfits
That no one else gets
Everyone else in the place
Became a silhouette
Soon as there was you
It all comes in view
On my guitar
I see those sparks
When we have those conversations in the dark

I am an avid Mac-user, nerd, musician, freelancer, and gamer. Ask me about my collection of M:TG cards! I've also got a horrible habit of needing the absolute newest technological wonder, whether it's stable or not. If they made a home-version of the LHC, I'd have 2. Additionally, I've been playing music for the better part of 14 years. I'm self-taught on piano, guitar, trumpet, trombone, sax, clarinet, bass, drums and other percussion, and around 10 other instruments. I also spend quite a bit of time dabbling in synthesizers, sequencers, and samplers. I'm also founder of Quotelicious where I collect and share the quotes I love.
