Baby, lets groove?

Song goes something like "babbbyyy letsss groooveee"

Name that song. It sounds very 70s-ish, like the Staples Singers, but not them.

Lyrics are something like "baby lets groooveee, awayyyy" or "baby lets mooveee, awayyyy".

Anybody?

Maybe Earth Wind and Fire - Let's Groove
or Deee-Lite - Groove is in the Heart?

Those sites might have pop-ups. I can't tell because FF turns them off.

It's Smokey Robinson's "Cruisin'." Later covered by Huey Lewis and Gwyneth Paltrow, as a duet. Yes, I knew that last bit off of the top of my head.

I think you're thinking of Smokey Robinson's "Cruising".

Covered by Huey Lewis and Gwenyth Paltrow as a duet, in the movie "DUETS." A karaoke favorite by pretentious couples who practice the parts a lot in advance.

Yep, Cruisin'. Is it wrong that I really like the Gwyneth Paltrow version?

Clarification: my love of the lame music in that movie should not be read as an endorsement of the movie itself; it was awful.

You guys should check out the D'Angelo cover of this song. It's awesome.

+1 to PercussivePaul's statement. D'Angelo's cover is smooth.
