Foreigner - Urgent

"Urgent" is a song by the British-American rock band Foreigner, and the first single from their album 4 in 1981.

Foreigner went into the Manhattan studio with producer Robert John "Mutt" Lange, best known at the time as producer for hard rock band AC/DC. Foreigner's sound wasn't quite as heavy, and the band worked with then-unknown Thomas Dolby to program and play synthesizer. Dolby's work can be heard on "Urgent", along with a saxophone solo by Motown artist Junior Walker.


You're not shy, you get around

You wanna fly, don't want your feet on the ground

You stay up, you won't come down

You wanna live, you wanna move to the sound

Got fire in your veins

Burnin' hot but you don't feel the pain

Your desire is insane

You can't stop until you do it again

But sometimes I wonder as I look in your eyes

Maybe you're thinking of some other guy

But I know, yes I know, how to treat you right

That's why you call me in the middle of the night

You say it's urgent

So urgent, so oh oh urgent

Just wait and see

How urgent my love can be

It's urgent

You play tricks on my mind

You're everywhere but you're so hard to find

You're not warm or sentimental

You're so extreme, you can be so temperamental

But I'm not looking for a love that will last

I know what I need and I need it fast

Yeah, there's one thing in common that we both share

That's a need for for each other anytime, anywhere

It gets so urgent

So urgent

You know it's urgent

I wanna tell you it's the same for me

So oh oh urgent

Just you wait and see

How urgent our love can be

It's urgent

You say it's urgent

Make it fast, make it urgent

Do it quick, do it urgent

Gotta rush, make it urgent

Want it quick

Urgent, urgent, emergency

Urgent, urgent, emergency

Urgent, urgent, emergency

Urgent, urgent, emergency

So urgent, emergency

Emer... emer... emer...

It's urgent
