Boyz II Men Covers the Classic Song “Cutie Pie” in a New Way

Boyz II Men Covers the Classic Song “Cutie Pie” in a New Way

It’s officially February! There is so much to celebrate this month: Black History Month, Setsubun/Groundhog Day, and, of course, Valentine. Kicking off this week’s #SongLyricsSunday is a prompt of pet names for your significant other: Babe/Cutie/Doll/Honey/Sweetie.

There are so many good choices of tunes that relate to this week’s prompt, like the classic Sonny and Cher song. However, I chose a different tune, a modern cover an 80s song that I never heard before: “Cutie Pie” by Boyz II Men.

Going Back to the Future with Boyz II Men

“Cutie Pie” was originally sung by the American R&B and funk band One Way. It was the only song by the band to chart on the Billboard Hot 100 when it was released in 1982. Because of their obscurity on the American music scene, I have never really heard of them until I did researched for this post. However, after listening to the original “Cutie Pie”, I have to check out more of One Way’s discography as I enjoy their sound: electric funk with dabs of disco.

Boyz II Men

Boyz II Men updated the song to a modern R&B vibe for their 2004 cover album Throwback, Vol. 1. I have to admit, I do really enjoy Boyz II Men’s cover of the song more than the original. Maybe it is because I grew up with the 2000s R&B sound. Or maybe, because I also adore Boyz II Men, who are super talented with their musicality and vocals (and also have wonderful songs).

Between the deep funky electronic bass synthesizer and the cool vocals from the members, Boyz II Men’s rendition of “Cutie Pie” is a groovy love tune for the young or the old.

Lyrics For Boyz II Men’s “Cutie Pie”

Cutie pie
You’re the reason why
I love you so
I don’t want you to go

You’re the girl who makes me feel so good
Cutie pie

Cutie pie
You brighten up my day
Impossible
For me to stay away

Lately hazy
Girl, I’m goin’ ’round
I want you to know
How much I love you so
Lately hazy
Girl, I’m goin’ ’round
I want you to see
How much you mean to me

You’re the girl who makes me feel so good
Cutie pie

Cutie pie
You really pick me up
‘Til I can’t, darling
Hardly get enough

You’re the girl who makes me feel so good
Cutie pie
Oh, oh, oh, oh, yeah yeah yeah

Cutie pie
You’re the reason why
I’m full of joy
Since you came into my life

Lately hazy
Girl, I’m goin’ ’round
I want you to know
How much I love you so
Lately hazy
Girl, I’m goin’ ’round
Want you to see
How much you mean to me

You’re the girl who makes me feel so good, yeah yeah
Oh yeah, oh…

You’re the girl who makes me feel so good
Cutie pie
You’re my cutie pie
Who makes me feel so good

You’re the girl who makes me feel good
Cutie pie

You’re the girl who makes me feel good
Cutie pie
You’re my cutie pie
Who makes me feel so good

You’re the girl who makes me feel good
Cutie pie
Oh yeah, oh…
