  • Give me the green light, give me just one night
    I'm ready to go right now, I'm ready to go right now

    I'm ready to go right now, I'm ready to go right now

    I see you move, I'm checking your smile
    Working your back like it's going out of style
    Shake just a little bit faster
    Shake just a little now girl
    Dying to meet you, so let's mess around
    I've got an obsession of us getting down
    Come just a little bit closer
    I just need permission so just

    Give me the green light, give me just one night
    I'm ready to go right now, I'm ready to go right now
    We can go all night, give me the green light
    I'm ready to go right now, I'm ready to go right now

    One two three green light, but if it's what it seems like
    The you moving baby, lets me know it's gon' be right
    I'm ready to go right now, I'm ready to go right now

    One two three red light, I wanna see what you dance like
    But if I can be your buddy, help you study and get your head right
    I'm ready to go right now, I'm ready to go right now

    Do I have a girlfriend, technically no.
    If you'll be my girlfriend then I'll make it so
    You'll be my only true lover
    No competition, no others
    Baby it's just the thrill of the chase
    But I've got a feeling that I'm winning this race!
    Baby I'm gettin' closer, I just need permission so

    Give me the green light, give me just one night.
    I'm ready to go right now! I'm ready to go right now
    We can go all night, give me the green light
    I'm ready to go right now, I'm ready to go right now

    One two three green light, but if it's what it seems like
    The you moving baby, lets me know it's gon' be right
    I'm ready to go right now, I'm ready to go right now

    One two three red light, I wanna see what your dance like
    But if I can be your buddy, get your study and get your head right
    I'm ready to go right now, I'm ready to go right now

    So I went hard like Medusa staring at me
    I told her let's go, let's blow this lame nigga factory
    She said, What type of girl do you think I are
    The kind that you meet in a bar
    You think you can get whatever you want cause you some kinda star
    No I'm a comet, I just want you woman
    Hey, If I were you then It would be me that I go home with
    Three, the one and only, one thing you ain't considered
    I heard you when you told your girl "ooh he can get it" admit it,
    You did it let's hop a cab and split it
    I'm kiddin' we both going to where you livin'
    Ha, I got you gigglin' like I'm piglet
    Oh that's the ticket, I hope you are more like Anita Baker than Robin Givens
    No, I don't know that lady so let me quit it
    I'm just style freein', freestylin' with y'all seldom do
    This is what I'm telling you
    To the bed I'm nailing you
    Like I've been in jail for two
    Years and then they let me loose

    Give me the green light, give me just one night
    I'm ready to go right now, I'm ready to go right now
    We can go all night, give me the green light
    I'm ready to go right now, I'm ready to go right nowWriter/s: Andre Benjamin, Fin Greenall, James Ho, John Stephens, Rick Nowles
