Here's my transcription. I have not included what the background singers sing. They mostly just repeat what the lead singer sings, or else "I'm qualified" or "Ah—". I'm sure you can figure that out.


I'M QUALIFIED
Written by Abrim Tilmon, Jr.
As sung by The Detroit Emeralds

If that's what you want, I'm qualified.
If that's what you need, my money buys.
It's yours to take, so don't deny,
For heaven's sakes, I'm qualified.

Now you'll be happy in my loving arms,
And you'll be protected from day to day,
And when I show you my master charms,
You're going to find out I mean just what I say,

'Cause I'm qualified. I'm qualified,
And you can't deny I'm qualified.
I'm qualified. I'm qualified,
And you can bet your life I'm qualified.

Now I've been accepted in the school of love,
And I've got my master's from the lover above(?),
And I've made all A's in not telling a lie,
And I'll graduate from Affectionate High.

Now I'm rough and ready, and I've got some smarts.
I'm not taking names; I'm not breaking hearts.
I'm just using my brains with a clean and open eye,
And for loving sakes, I'm qualified.

If that's what you want, I'm qualified.
If that's what you need, my money buys.
It's yours to take, so don't deny,
For heaven's sakes, I'm qualified.

Now I started loving when I was just a kid.
I tried to do the things that I knew my papa did.
When I became of age, I started doing my thing,
And Daddy told me, "Thanks, son, for holding up my name."

He said, "You're qualified. You're qualified."
You can't deny I'm qualified.
I'm qualified. I'm qualified.
And you can bet your life I'm qualified.


[Gio: Are you learning to sing these songs?]
