Songfacts®:

  • Badu warns her suitor over and over, "You don't want to fall in love with me." The singer adds in a nod to a lyric by late rapper the Notorious B.I.G: "You don't want to fall in love with me/There's gonna be a lot of slow singing and flower bringing, if my burglar alarm starts ringing."
