  • I got one for the money
    I got two for the bass, yeah
    I got three to get you goin' baby
    'Cause Da Brats in da place
    And it don't stop uh, and it don't quit, uh
    Yeah, like that and it don't stop
    And it don't quit, like that

    Do do doop do do do dot dot do dow

    We were as one baby
    For a moment in time
    And it seemed everlasting
    That you would always be mine
    Now you want to be free
    So I'll let you fly
    'Cause I know in my heart baby
    Our love will never die

    You'll always be a part of me
    I'm part of you indefinitely
    Boy don't you know you can't escape me
    Ooh darling 'cause you'll always be my baby
    And we'll linger on
    Time can't erase a feeling this strong
    No way you're never gonna shake me
    Ooh darling 'cause you'll always be my baby

    Do do doop do do do dot dot do dow
    Do dot do do do do dot dot do dow

    I ain't gonna cry no
    And I won't beg you to stay
    If you're determined to leave boy
    I will not stand in your way
    But inevitably, you'll be back again
    'Cause you know in your heart baby
    Our love will never end

    You'll always be a part of me
    I'm part of you indefinitely
    Boy don't you know you can't escape me
    Ooh darling 'cause you'll always be my baby
    And we'll linger on
    Time can't erase a feeling this strong
    No way you're never gonna shake me
    Ooh darling 'cause you'll always be my baby

    I know that you'll be back boy
    When your days and your nights get a little bit colder
    I know that you'll be right back baby
    Oh baby believe me it's only a matter of time

    Who brings the ruckus and the pain like Meth
    It's evident the residents of So So Def
    Got the industry on lock where outsiders can't enter
    Ever since the arrival of this west side respresnter
    Who rocks your musicbox and break down your structure
    You fantasize as you visualize me as your dreamlover (whoa)
    With your emotions unplugging your daydream face reality
    Reason through MC's inflicting fatalities
    Ain't no cap on my salary
    I'm gettin' g's if you heard of me's
    Then you know that we's makin' g's
    Let's Xscape with Mariah Carey and me to the back
    Steady stacking papers smokin' on fat sacs of dank
    See, to some I'm a hero of this feel on file
    But that's my style
    And they don't pay me nor can they fade me
    So what I do is keep it true and real for my peeps in the street
    'Cause to them I'ma always be their baby

    May we always be together
    In the sands of time

    Do do doop do do do dot dot do dow
    Do dot do do do do dot dot do dow

    You'll always be a part of me
    I'm part of you indefinitely
    Boy don't you know you can't escape me
    Ooh darling 'cause you'll always be my baby
    And we'll linger on
    Time can't erase a feeling this strong
    No way you're never gonna shake me
    Ooh darling 'cause you'll always be my baby

    And I will always be
    No way you're never gonna shake me
    No way you're never gonna shake me
    And I will always be
    No matter what you, no matter what you do babeWriter/s: Mariah Carey, Jermaine Dupri, James Samuel Iii Harris, James Harris Iii, Terry Lewis, Manuel Lonnie Seal

  • Markantney from BiloxeJun 2015, If you haven't heard it; the Jermaine Dupri Remix to this song is off the hook. It's a different tempo than the original; it's actually better than the original version.
  • Fresciouz from United StatesThis is one of my favorite songs. It makes me fall in love every time I listen to it.
  • Audrey from Lawrance, MaLove this song so much.
  • Theresa from Murfreesboro, TnDavid Cook breathed new life into this song on Idol.
