  • Boy, you know that I want it
    I can tell you want me as your lady
    Can't deny that you're sexy
    So what's it gon' be
    Is you gon' get a job
    And make some of that green?
    You tryna take me out
    But you can't pay for me
    I guess I got the cash
    I'll take one for the team
    Baby, can't you see?

    Oh oh, oh oh, oh oh
    I won't ask you to go

    But I can't be your suga mama
    Your suga mama, baby

    I can't be your suga mama
    Your suga mama, mmm mmm

    Ain't nobody love me like- like you do
    I won't call you lazy
    But how you pay for food
    My daddy said 'no'
    You ain't no good for me
    Not ballin' in that dough
    But I'm payin' for your things
    Something's gotta change, boy
    Hmm please (boy, please)
    Oh, baby, can't you see?
