    To all my ladies that be givin' it up, ah
    C'mon, baby

    This ain't your typical, everyday, one night thing
    It's a physical, I'mma love you tonight thing
    Love , callin' your name, put your phone in the Range
    And roll over, I just really wanted to hold ya
    Time get to know ya, that's a good chick
    Before it's all over, I'mma meat this chick
    Probably treat this chick, mo' betta
    'Cause if you ain't, know, thugs and ladies go together
    Poppin' my collar, patnah, who in the spot?
    Baby, Rule in the spot, and the mug and the watch ugly
    Half of y'all hate me, half y'all love me
    The ones that hate me only hate me 'cause they don't trust me
    And they say I'm lucky, you think I got time
    To blow all this dough and do all these shows?
    Or flight in the llama chargin' white Rolls
    Uh-oh, another episode

    What, do I do?
    To everybody that be livin' it up, we say
    What, I do
    And all my ladies that be givin' it up, uhh

    C'mon

    Ladies, just wanna hold a name Miss Atkins
    That's why they show love with mo' passion than average
    And I ain't mad at' never leave you alone
    'Cause the song when I'm home, like the song when I'm gone
    We both grown, both got minds of our own
    Plus we hit it off like first sight in "Love Jones"
    Been in, many zones, baby love it all hate it all
    From, prissy women to women that go to shadows
    But you know, the Rule be livin' it up
    And got all y'all, givin' it up
    I like a, little ooh baby, how cute are you?
    With a body that rides on sexual
    I got a stick, I'll ride right next to you
    Doin' doughnuts, and cut, then I'll open it up
    On the freeway, hand on the wheel, foot on the clutch
    Rule baby, not givin' it up

    What, do I do?
    To everybody that be livin' it up, we say
    What, I do
    And all my ladies that be givin' it up, uhh

    C'mon, we get right
    C'mon, we get live
    C'mon, we get right
    Live yo' life

    Love you so sexy, I just want you next to me
    Your whole vibe's like a sign in ecstasy
    'Cause it ain't nuttin' but a 'E' thang, bay-bay
    I know the World is goin' crazy
    I wanna, feel your passion, come when you askin'
    Laugh when you cryin', cry when you laughin'
    But ain't nothing happenin', a girl got a little uptight
    Turned off the light and then started crashin'
    The radio blastin' "Between Me and You"
    But, you ain't on the low with that freaky thing you do
    Girl I thought you knew (what I do), know I know
    (What you do)
    'Cause it ain't a good night if you don't act right
    Like, Teddy P let's "Turn Off the Lights"
    And, grind it out, takin' no times out
    'Til the sun come out, let me find out

    What, do I do?
    To everybody that be livin' it up, we say
    What, I do
    And all my ladies that be givin' it up, uhh
    What, you do
    To everybody that be livin' it up, we say
    What, do I do?
    And all my ladies that be givin' it up, uhh
    My love's for you
    C'mon

    To everybody that be livin' it up, we say
    What, I do
    And all my ladies that be givin' it up, uhh
    What, you do
    To everybody that be livin' it up, we say
    What, do I do?
    And all my ladies that be givin' it up, uhh
    My love's for you
