  • You're a dime, so beautiful
    Top of the line, so unusual
    Words can't define
    You're running through my mind all day (day, day)
    I'm so happy you're mine, so beautiful
    Top of the line, so unusual
    Now I think it's time, hey shawty
    I hope you don't take this the wrong way

    Girl, you look better with the lights off (hey, hey)
    Better with the lights off (hey, hey), ooh (oh, oh)(it's the Cataracs)
    Girl, you look better with the lights off (hey, hey)
    Better with the lights off (hey, hey), ooh
    (Baby girl, you're better with the lights off)

    Oh, hey miss America
    Oh, what you look so sad for?
    Sweetheart, you only live one time
    So put your fantasies on flash forward
    Like gon' speed me up, got a deadline, 'cause you need me done
    I hate your type, I love you too
    I bite your swag 'cause I wanna do you

    Can you blame me, babe?
    Obama your work clothes, girl, make a change
    To your lingerie, right like that, lalala make your eyes roll back
    I mean you already fine though
    I just wanna see you with the lights off
    Every guy wanna know how it is
    To clap off the lights and turn Khloe to Kim

    You're a dime, so beautiful
    Top of the line, so unusual
    Words can't define
    You're running through my mind all day (day, day)
    I'm so happy you're mine, so beautiful
    Top of the line, so unusual
    Now I think it's time, hey shawty
    I hope you don't take this the wrong way

    Girl, you look better with the lights off (hey, hey)
    Better with the lights off (hey, hey), ooh (girl)
    Girl, you look better with the lights off (hey, hey)
    Better with the lights off (hey)
    (Baby girl, you're better with the lights off)

    Uh, drive off to take my girl to have a nice day
    Shit was right, so I let her hang my way
    You look cute girl, what you wanna do, girl?
    Drive to my house 'cause it's only me and you, girl (fo' sho')
    Checking her out, she had to put her swag on
    Acting too happy saying she ain't going back home
    I'm like wow, whatever you say
    But whatever you plan gotta be done at eight
    Hey, stop
    Party at my place, of course you're welcome girl, you ain't taking up space
    We get there, and shawty still looking right
    She attacked me, but wait let me dim the lights (hold up)
    You look different, she's like, "Boy, stop it"
    No, I ain't playing actually you more poppin'
    She said, "Shocking", know what's really raw"
    I don't know baby, but even the lights off

    You're a dime, so beautiful
    Top of the line, so unusual
    Words can't define
    You're running through my mind all day (day, day)
    I'm so happy you're mine, so beautiful
    Top of the line, so unusual
    Now I think it's time, hey shawty
    I hope you don't take this the wrong way

    Girl, you look better with the lights off
    Better with the lights off, ooh
    Girl, you look better with the lights off
    Better with the lights off, ooh
    (Baby girl, you're better with the lights off)
    Girl, you look better with the lights off
    Better with the lights off, ooh
    Girl, you look better with the lights off
    Better with the lights off, ooh
