Tell Me Something Good. Featuring Chaka Khan. Produced by Bob Monaco. Tell Me Something Good Lyrics. You ain't got no kind of feeling inside I got something that'll sho nuff set yo' stuff on fire You refuse to put anything before your pride What I got will knock your pride aside. Tell me something good Tell me that you love me, yeah Tell me something good Tell me that you like it, yeah. I remember we were in the studio recording our first album. I was 19 at the time, I was very pregnant, very tired, and I’m sure not in a very good mood. So Stevie Wonder had been told that he should drop into the studio while we were there to check us out, and he came into the room, sat down and played us a song.
