  • No me puedo controlar
    Aquí con el señor LL Cool J
    Y aquí estoy
    Ya tú sabe' (oh, oh)
    1, 2, 3 muévete

    The club was far from empty
    It was crowded at the entry
    I slide right through like how I do
    This girl began to tempt me
    She said her name Shaiyeeda
    I could tell her mama feed her
    When they tight and when them jeans don't fit
    I'm L, nice to meet ya
    I could feel my body yearnin'
    The room just started turnin'
    Didn't wanna go out on the floor
    But this girl was so determined (Let's dance)
    My brain began to sizzle
    I'm sweatin' just a little
    On the dance floor in the middle
    She turned around and giggled, she said

    You got, you got, you got
    What it takes to make me leave my man
    It's hard to control myself
    It's hard to control myself
    You got, you got, you got
    What it takes to make this boy be bad
    It's hard to control myself, it's hard to control myself

    It's hard for me to control myself
    Get to hold myself
    Back from jumpin' on ya
    Like I wanna, like I wanna, wanna

    Temptation is a mother
    How we lust for one another
    We barely know each other
    Yet we're whilin' like we're lovers (uh huh)
    The air is filled with passion
    The strobe lights are flashin'
    The hustlers throw cash in
    The bar tender keeps splashin'
    Her moves were so erotic
    Her games were so hypnotic
    I bet this girl could stop it
    But she continued to pop it

    You know I know you like it
    Let me hit you on your sidekick
    Cause the after party is at my body
    Meet me, you're invited

    You got, you got, you got
    What it takes to make me leave my man
    It's hard to control myself
    It's hard to control myself
    You got, you got, you got
    What it takes to make this boy be bad
    It's hard to control myself, it's hard to control myself

    It's hard for me to control myself
    Get to hold myself
    Back from jumpin' on ya
    Like I wanna, like I wanna, wanna

    She licked off
    Her lip gloss
    Her hips toss
    Back and forth
    Side to side and
    Up and down
    She touched the ground
    It turned me out
    I'm battlin' desire
    Lord help me douse this fire
    This internal inferno
    Hotter than a shot of Cuervo (c'mon)
    Her top was short and purple
    Belly dancin' in a circle
    When I feel like this I can't resist
    I don't make me hurt you, she said

    You got, you got, you got
    What it takes to make me leave my man
    It's hard to control myself
    It's hard to control myself
    You got, you got, you got
    What it takes to make this boy be bad
    It's hard to control myself, it's hard to control myself

    It's hard for me to control myself
    Get to hold myself
    Back from jumpin' on ya
    Like I wanna like I wanna, wanna

    Zih-zih-zih-zih-zih, zih-zih-zih
    Zih-zih-zih-zih-zih-zih-zih
    Zih-zih-zih, zih-zih, zih-zih
    Zih-zih, zih-zih, zih-zih, zih-zih

    Zih-zih-zih-zih-zih, zih-zih-zih
    Zih-zih-zih-zih-zih-zih-zih
    Zih-zih-zih, zih-zih, zih-zih
    Zih-zih, zih-zih, zih-zih, zih-zih

    Uh, yeah
    I need everybody to report to the dance floor
    Right now, woo-ooh
    Yeah, uh-huh, uh-huh
    Shake it, shake it (haha)
    Shake, shake it (y'all know what this is)
