Conversation got heavy (hey)
She had me feeling like she's ready to blow (watch out)
Oh (watch out)
She's saying "Come get me" (come get me)
So I got up and followed her to the floor
She said, "Baby, let's go"
When I told her (let's go)

So she's all up in my head now
Got me thinking that it might be a good idea to take her with me
'Cause she's ready to leave (ready to leave now)

If you hold the head steady, I'ma milk the cow (yeah!)
And forget about game, I'ma spit the truth (what?)
I won't stop 'til I get 'em in they birthday suit (yeah!)
So gimme the rhythm and it'll be off with their clothes
Then bend over to the front and touch your toes
I left the Jag and I took the Rolls
If they ain't cutting, then I put 'em on foot patrol (let's go)
How you like me now?
When my pinky's valued over three hundred thousand
Let's drink, you the one to please (yeah)
Ludacris fill cups like double D's (yeah!)
Me and Ursh' once more, and we leaves 'em dead (hey)
We want a lady in the street but a freak in the bed that say
Yeah!
Shorty got down low and said "Come and get me"
(Yeah!) Yeah!
I got so caught up, I forgot she told me
(Yeah!) Yeah!
Her and my girl, used to be the best of homies
(Yeah!) Yeah!
Next thing I knew, she was all up on me screaming
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah
