  • Gimme a beat

    Sittin' in the movie show, thinkin' nasty thoughts, huh
    Better be a gentleman, or you turn me off, huh
    That's right
    A-let me tell it

    Nasty, nasty boys, don't mean a thing, huh
    Oh, you nasty boys
    Nasty, nasty boys, don't ever change, huh
    Oh, you nasty boys

    I don't like no nasty car, I don't like a nasty food, huh (ooh, ooh, yeah)
    The only nasty thing I like is the nasty groove, huh
    Will this one do?
    Uh-huh, I know, sing

    Nasty, nasty boys, don't mean a thing, huh
    Oh, you nasty boys
    Nasty, nasty boys, don't ever change, huh
    Oh, you nasty boys
    Nasty, nasty boys, give me your nasty groove, huh
    Oh, you nasty boys
    Nasty, nasty boys, let me see your nasty body move, huh
    Oh, you nasty boys

    I could learn to like this
    Listen up

    I'm not a prude (no)
    I just want some respect (that's right)
    So close the door if you want me to respond (ooh, ooh, yeah)
    'Cause privacy is my middle name
    My last name is Control
    No, my first name ain't baby
    It's Janet, Miss Jackson if you're nasty

    Nasty, nasty boys, don't mean a thing
    Oh, you nasty boys
    Nasty, nasty boys, don't ever change, huh
    Oh, you nasty boys

    Nasty boys don't mean a thing
    Oh, you nasty boys
    Don't mean a thing to me, uh
    Nasty, don't mean a thing, uh
    Oh, you nasty boys, uh

    I love this part

    Hey
    Who's that thinkin' nasty thoughts? (Nasty boys)
    Who's that in that nasty car? (Nasty boys)
    Who's that eating that nasty food? (Nasty boys)
    Who's jamming to my nasty groove? (Nasty boys)

    Ladies?
    Nasty boys
    Don't mean a thing
    Oh, you nasty boys Writer/s: James Harris III, Terry Lewis
