  • Right, my yiy just changed
    You just buzzed the front gate
    I thank God you came
    How many more days could I wait?
    I made plans with you
    And I won't let 'em fall through
    I, I, I, I, I

    I think I'd lie for you
    I think I'd die for you
    Jodeci "Cry for You"
    Do things when you want me to
    Like controlla, controlla, yeah
    Like controlla, controlla, yeah

    Okay, you like it, when I get
    Aggressive, tell you to
    Go slower, go faster
    Like controlla, controlla, yeah
    Like controlla, controlla, yeah

    And I'm never on a waste ting, shorty
    I do it how you say you want it
    Them girls, they just wanna take my money
    They don't want me to give you nothing
    They don't want you to have nothing
    They don't wanna see me find your lovin'
    They don't wanna see me
    Smiling back when they pree

    Knowing I'd lie for you
    Thinking I'd die for you
    Jodeci "Cry for You"
    Do things when you want me to
    Like controlla, controlla, yeah
    Like controlla, controlla, yeah

    Gyal a tear off mi garments
    And a bawl fi come inna mi apartment (Woi!)
    Di gyal dem want di length and strength
    Action speak louder than argument well

    But you can't just diss and come tell man sorry
    You can't listen to me talk and go tell my story, nah
    It don't work like that when you love somebody
    My old flex is my new flex now and we're workin' on it, yeah
    And that's why I need
    All the energy that you bring to me
    My last girl would tear me apart
    But she'd never wanna split a ting with me

    But when it comes to you, you
    I think I'd lie for you
    I think I'd die for you
    Do things when you want me too
    Like controlla, controlla, yeah
    Like controlla, controlla, yeah

    And I'm never on a waste ting shorty
    I do it how you say you want it
    Them girls, they just wanna take my money
    They don't want me to give you nothing
    They don't want you to have nothing
    They don't wanna see me find your lovin'
    They don't wanna see me
    Smiling back when they pree (Jheeze!)

    Music a drop!
    Gyal a whine up dem bumpa
    Dis is di summa summa controlla
