about

“You wouldn’t believe how many people have come up to us over the years and, when they find out we’re the band behind “I Can’t Wait”, have burst into song. “You mean THIS song?” they ask – and then out comes “B-b-baby, I Can’t Wait”, or the bass line, or the stuttering synth sample “uh uh uh uh uh uh uh uh uh”. (Wish we had video footage of all these people singing. It would make a GREAT video montage!)

Anyway, after more than 20 years of people warbling at us a cappella, we thought we’d help them out with a background track. So, for all you karaoke crazies out there, here you go! Have fun!”

Valerie and John


In 1984, Valerie Day and husband, John Smith, recorded a self-produced five-song EP with their band Nu Shooz. Listener reaction to their funky dance track “I Can’t Wait,” was strong and immediate – the kind of response known in radio jargon as “instant phones.” Airplay spread and the tune made its way to Europe, where a Dutch engineer created a remix that came back to the US and caught fire in New York dance clubs. “I Can’t Wait” reached #3 on the pop charts, #1 on the Urban charts, #1 on the Dance charts, and hit the the top 10 in Europe and Britain in 1986. Nu Shooz went on to record several other hit singles, and after selling more than a million records world wide, were nominated for Best New Artist at the 1987 Grammy Awards.

To this day, “I Can’t Wait” continues to be played somewhere on earth every 11 minutes.

Here are the song lyrics to accompany your karaoke track.

Enjoy!

lyrics

My love, tell me what it's all about
You've got somethin' that I can't live without
Happiness, is so hard to find
Hey baby, tell me what is on your mind

'Cause I can't wait (baby I can't wait) till you call me on the telephone
I can't wait (baby I can't wait) till we're all alone

You know I love you even when you don't try
I know that our love will never die
Hey darling when you look into my eye
Please tell me you'll never have to say goodbye

'Cause I can't wait (baby I can't wait) this is what I've been waiting for
I can't wait (baby I can't wait) till my love walks in the door
I can't wait (baby I can't wait) true love is so hard to find
I found yours, you found mine
I can't wait (baby I can't wait) tell me what is on your mind
Got to let you know...

I can't wait (baby I can't wait) till you call me on the telephone
I can't wait (baby I can't wait) till we're all alone
Oh oh I can't wait (baby I can't wait) true love is so hard to find
I found yours, you found mine
I can't wait (baby I can't wait) tell me what is on your mind
No, no, I can't wait (baby I can't wait)
No, I can't wait (baby I can't wait)
Say it one more time
Oh I can't wait (baby I can't wait) this is what I've been waiting for
Oh I can't wait (baby I can't wait) till my love walks in the door
