  • What's up boo
    Ha ha ha ha
    Yeah
    Another shady mission
    Tricks
    Like watching pictures in hazy vision
    Tonight is love making
    Take you any place you wish
    Today we satisfy
    Yesterday was stolen kisses
    Blind insanity perfect pictures of me and my family
    Not understanding the destiny, that they planned for me
    If I have kids will I live to see em grow?
    Though I don't know, I live the life of a thug nigga until the day I go
    More broken promises, a sacred bond broken
    I know I'll die alone, but yet and still I'm hoping
    Visions of prisons, maybe I'll be forgiven
    I know its better in heaven cause being here ain't living
    Close my eyes and see nothing but pain the world's crazy
    Still look for a queen to plant seeds and have babies
    Maybe I'll be the one, or just maybe I'm lost
    You'll never know being cautious
    If you play your cards right

    Baby
    I want to be the one who, who you can depend on who
    Who'll be the one who'll be there (Be the one who'll be there)
    Oh baby
    Down by the water we will, be there till the morning
    We won't, leave until the night and we will, be forever more

    Baby
    I want to be the one who, who you can depend on who
    Who'll be the one who'll be there (Be the one who'll be there)
    Oh baby
    Down by the water we will, be there till the morning
    We won't, leave until the night and we will, be forever more

    No one else can do
    What you do, for me
    Take me away from the pain, I feel, inside (I feel inside)
    And it's gonna be all RIGHT, it will be okay
    If we try, and take our time
    Please baby, take your time
    And we'll grow, trust I know

    You gotta play your cards right
    Can't be rushing like it's a race you know what I'm saying?
    If you be patient, and you take your time
    And you finesse it
    Nine times out of ten homeboy your gonna wake up with your breakfast in bed
    But if you rush
    Then you'll just be man handling
    Ha ha
    Play your cards right nigga
    Take your time
    Be patient
    It's better that way
    Ha ha
    Play your cards right

    Baby
    I want to be the one who, who you can depend on who
    Who'll be the one who'll be there (Be the one who'll be there)
    Oh baby
    Down by the water we will, be there till the morning
    We won't, leave until the night and we will, be forever more

    Take your time man
    Don't be in such a rush
    Ha ha
    You got to be patient man, be patient
    Ha ha ha ha
    It ain't going nowhere boy
    Ha ha
    Get some champagne
    Bring some roses or something you know?
    Play some soft shit
    You got to be cool with it
    You got to be slow with it
    Got to be patient
    You got to play your cards right homeboy
    You can't be rushing like it's a race you know what I'm saying?
    If you be patient and you take your time
    And you finesse it Lyrics licensed and provided by LyricFind
