  • I love you and I need you
    Nelly, I love you, I do
    Need you

    No matter what I do
    All I think about is you
    Even when I'm with my boo
    Boy, you know I'm crazy over you

    No matter what I do
    All I think about is you
    Even when I'm with my boo
    You know I'm crazy over you

    Uh uh uh uh
    I met this chick and she just moved right up the block
    From me
    And she got the hots for me, the finest thing I need
    To see
    But oh, no, no, she got a man and a son, oh oh, but
    That's okay
    Cause I wait for my cue and just listen, play my
    Position
    Like a shortstop, pick up everything mami hittin'
    And in no time I better make this friend mine and
    That's for sure
    Cause I I never been the type to break up a happy
    Home
    But there's something 'bout baby girl, I just cant
    Leave her lone
    So tell me, ma, what's it gonna be
    She said, you don't know what you mean to me, come
    On

    No matter what I do
    All I think about is you
    Even when I'm with my boo
    Boy, you know I'm crazy over you

    No matter what I do
    All I think about is you
    Even when I'm with my boo
    You know I'm crazy over you

    Uh uh uh uh
    I see a lot in your look and I never say a word
    I know how nigures start actin' trippin', and hate up
    All the girls
    And there's no way Nelly go for it
    Ain't fuckin' with no dame, as you could see
    But I I like your steeze, your style, your whole
    Demeanor
    The way you come through and holler, and swoop me in
    His two seater
    Now that's gangsta and I got special ways to thank ya,
    Don't you forget it
    But it ain't that easy for you to back up and leave
    Him
    But you and me we got ties for different reasons
    I respect that and right before I turned to leave
    She said, you don't know what you mean to me, come
    On

    No matter what I do
    All I think about is you
    Even when I'm with my boo
    Boy, you know I'm crazy over you

    No matter what I do
    All I think about is you
    Even when I'm with my boo
    You know I'm crazy over you

    Sing it for me, k

    I love and I need you
    Nelly, I love you, I do
    And it's more than you'll ever know
    Boy, it's for sure
    You can always count on my love
    Forever more, yeah, yeah

    Down south, I know you're bouncin' right
    West coast, I know you're walkin' right

  • Miles from Vancouver, CanadaFirst of all, don't badmouth Norah Jones. Well, ok, her newer stuff is nothing to write to home about, but I do still love her first two albums. Second, I'm not a fan of either artist, but this is a great song. It holds (dare I say?) warm feelings of Grade 11, when me and my friend Andrew would have sleepovers at his mother's house. We saw the video on TV, which is probably what triggers those feelings. It's not so overproduced, either. (But I do also like Nelly's songs "Ride Wit Me" and "Hot in Herre".)
  • Eliete from São Paulo, BrazilThis is the best music i have been heard! I love all about that song! I love is too much. Please don´t tell bad things about that one, because it´s beautifull, lovely and sensible too much. I´d like to have more notices about Kelly, mainly NELLY of course. Kisses for them, mainly NELLY of course...
  • Brian from London, CanadaDon't like this song. Better then Grillz.
  • Kelli from Cedar Rapids, IaHow would you know what kind of music to commit suicide to? Its not like you've ever done it.
  • Danielle from Richmond, KyI really like this song and kelly and nelly actually work good together~! (maybe they should do another one together~!)
  • Michael Jones from Berlin, MdThis song brings back a lot of old memories. Good and bad, but it's nice to listen to this song all the same.
  • Sarah from Quito, South Americaok, you DONT commit suicide to noah jones. its too...slow. you cant commit suicide to slow music. there is no anger, you are at peace with jazz. you do it to like...staind, or something like that...but you shouldnt have to do it all all. its pointless, and even though you think its gonna help other people, it wont. it will make it worse for them
  • Sarah from Quito, South Americanelly and kelly arent even that good, and noah jones has more sophisticated music....but i hate her anyways. she sucks. ive had too much!
  • Autumn from Las Vegas, NeThis song totally relates to me!!!! Even though i dont have a b/f i still cant stop thinking about this one guy. i cant believe it lost to norah jones. that sucks!!!
  • Peter from Carmel, Inwhile nelly is good, norah's music is part of a dying artform. not many people can write jazz.
  • Tiffany from Las Vegas, NvI agree with Lara Kelly and Nelly are WAY better than Norah Jones. Kelly and Nelly are the BOMB!
  • Jude from Db, CaNorah Jones is ten times better than Kelly or nelly.
  • Lara from Cape Town, South AfricaI don't believe this song lost to NORAH JONES ! She sings the kind of music you commit suicide to! If she was any slower on her videos MTV would have to use fast forward & it would still be slow! This is the best song ever when I hear the first part where she goes "& I luv u" I just have to sing along !
