  • Hey, hey, hey
    Come on
    We are having too much fun right here

    She's got a secret but I know
    She wanna break it down for me like she tryna get some paper
    Who needs a stage with the lights low
    Cause you already dropped the bullet and turned it into something major

    Now can we discuss
    How fast you just got undressed
    Girl if sex is a contest then you're coming first (And)
    Don't rush, go slow
    No I can't lie, I'm impressed
    And no impatient encore
    When love curtains close

    It's a cabaret
    (Put on a show, get on the floor)
    Cause even though I'm a professional
    I like to do my work at home
    Cabaret
    (Put on a show, get on the floor)
    You giving me everything you got
    All I really want now is more
    (Put on a show, get on the floor)
    (Get on the floor, get on the floor)
    (Put on a show, get on the floor)
    You giving me everything you got
    All I really want now is more

    Fantasy play the role
    And all these new moves that I'd like got me feeling like a stranger
    Say my name, do you know
    Cause I got you saying Jesus so much its like we are laying in the Manger

    Now can we discuss
    How fast you just got undressed
    Girl if sex is a contest then you're coming first (And)
    Don't rush, go slow
    No I can't lie, I'm impressed
    And no impatient encore
    When love curtains close

    It's a cabaret
    (Put on a show, get on the floor)
    Cause even though I'm a professional
    I like to do my work at home
    Cabaret
    (Put on a show, get on the floor)
    You giving me everything you got
    All I really want now is more
    (Put on a show, get on the floor)
    (Get on the floor, get on the floor)
    (Put on a show, get on the floor)
    You giving me everything you got
    All I really want now is more

    Okay this just in girl the paper so long
    Always seem like I gotta wait for so long
    So long till you get off from work
    But listen I got some better positions for you to take in for so long
    Always strap up just for safety then go long
    Then do my touchdown dance in it no clothes on
    We might fuck around and slip tonight
    You're Kryptonite, you should probably have a cape to throw on
    On my Eddie Murphy Boomerang for ya
    Got a bunch of old girls that I threw away for ya
    I been in the gym doing two-a-days for ya
    So I can lift ya up when I do the thang to ya
    D-do do the thing to ya
    Girl truth be told
    You set the pace then you ride it like cruise control
    The shit feel so right gotta tell somebody
    I just can't decide who should know
    I'll keep a secret for ya
    I'm trying to ease your mind, word to Boosie
    Pole in my bedroom that was there when I moved in
    Okay fine, I'm a terrible liar
    Girl what difference does it make if it was there, it's mine
    You the girl that's gonna be there when it's marrying time
    And I'm gonna fuck you like we are having an affair
    I swear it's like I'm undercover way I'm cuffing you though
    Presidential shit girl you up on the poles
    Say this is a private show, oh boy don't start
    Keep it soul stripping things slipping like a pole vault
    North pole boy from the T.O.
    They ain't really ready for me and that J.T. though
    Cook for ya and then I break it down like a kilo
    Got a camera watching our every single move like casinos

    It's a cabaret
    (Put on a show, get on the floor)
    Cause even though I'm a professional
    I like to do my work at home
    Cabaret
    (Put on a show, get on the floor)
    You giving me everything you got
    All I really want now is more
    (Put on a show, get on the floor)
    (Get on the floor, get on the floor)
