The SOS Band is an American musical ensemble, founded in Atlanta, Georgia, in 1977.
Originally known as Santa Monica, the "SOS" initialism in the band's name does not stand for Save Our Souls—but for Sounds of Success.
Lead vocalist Mary Davis left the group in the late 1980s to pursue a solo career and was replaced by Chandra Currelley beginning with the band's 1989 Diamonds in the Raw album. More recently, Currelley has been active as an actress and vocalist in plays and films.

Oh, Baby, take your time -
Come on, Baby.
Oh, Baby, take your time.
You know you ought to slow down,
You been working too hard and that's a fact.
Sit back and relax a while,
Take some time to laugh and smile.
Lay your heavy load down,
So we can stop and kick back.
It seems we never take the time to do
All the things we want to.
Now, Baby we can do it
Take the time - do it right,
We can do it, Baby -
Do it tonight.
Baby, we can do it, ...
The love I feel for you,
You feel for me.
One life is all we have to live,
One love is all we have to give.
There are so many things
For us to do and see,
Let's take some time to be alone,
Lock the door, pull out the phone.
Baby we can do it, ...
