  • Hit the block around twenty to nine,
    Checking my girl
    But then I see this girl lookin' fine, so I
    Asked her if she wouldn't mind,
    Could you tell me your name and what you're doing tonight ?
    Body like nothin' I seen,
    She's telling me she's on the cover of GQ magazine.
    Tellin' me she had to go
    So I dropped her at the spot in my four by four

    So I told her
    I can't be late,
    The girl's taking up my time,
    Had to hit her with a line,
    So I told her
    I can't wait to freak,
    See you at the same time next week.
    She said

    Baby give me what you got,
    'Cause I'm everything that's she's not.
    Love is all I bring,
    In my khaki suit and thing.
    So honey leave your girl at home,
    With your car keys, mobile phone.
    Love is all I got,
    All the things that make you hot

    Got my woman crazy on the phone,
    She's talking bout why the fuck my ass ain't at home.
    Had to tell her I was stuck,
    In some brand new business, I was all tied up.
    Told the girl I was late,
    I had to rhyme.
    I got to be backstage at a quarter past nine.
    Telling me to change my mind
    She's like Britney Spears "Baby hit me one more time"

    So I told her
    I can't be late,
    The girl's taking up my time,
    Had to hit her with a line,
    So I told her
    I can't wait to freak,
    See you at the same time next week.
    She said

    Baby give me what you got,
    'Cause I'm everything that's she's not.
    Love is all I bring,
    In my khaki suit and thing.
    So honey leave your girl at home,
    With your car keys, mobile phone.
    Love is all I got,
    All the things that make you hot Writer/s: RICHARD BREEN, ALTHEA ROSE FORREST, JULIAN GALLAGHER, JOE GIBBS, DONNA MARIE REID, RICHARD FREDERICK STANNARD, ERROL FELTON THOMPSON
