  • Ooh, ooh uh, woo woo
    Um, yeah

    Girl you mine and I thank the lord for you
    Cause ain't no other girl ever did me like you do
    And all those times I did you wrong
    You stayed got my back
    You sheltered me from my enemies
    Shared my pain even when it was all because of me
    Make me throw up both my hands and say

    Ooh oh
    There's something religious about you (I wanna testify)
    There's something church about you
    I just wanna tell the world that you're my girl

    Aye-hey-ey
    There's something religious about you (girl there is)
    There's something church about you (tellin' everywhere I go)
    I want the world to know

    There's no other way to explain just how I feel
    Kinda of like the r in r & b who's the big deal
    And that's why I'm on my knees
    Whoa-oh-oh
    Because of you girl I repent and change my thuggish ways

    And you always praying for me
