I tried to run but couldn't get too far My heart is bumpin' but still runnin' in place No matter how hard I try to get your touch When you're away to love a girls is too much But every time I run I oh so bad
But I'm running as still my heart's beatin' so fast I heard that you could make a man change his plan That's why I'm running fast, I'm running to honey your (dash)
I run for the heels, girl that you wore How you appeal you see I never know I told her folks (her love a double face) Delight me a smoke so I can sing some jazz
Now here come in late, here come those eyes And me the one I can never deny I try to ?, move as I can But I guess I need another plan I need you lovin' baby, oh so bad
Girl I'm runnin' as (still') my heart's beatin' so fast I heard that you could make a man change his plan That's why I'm running fast, I'm running to honey your (dash)
Your love gets stronger And it feels like everyday it's getting longer I feel your love like a monkey on my back Girl your honey's so big see I can feel the attack
Oh oh I need some lovin' I, I want your lovin' I can have your lovin' I need to, got to, got to have your lovin'

The Naughty by Nature hit "O.P.P." doesn't have any curse words, but many oversensitive radio stations played a "clean" version with the word "kitten" edited out, surely the first time that word was censured.
Who writes a song about a name they found in a phone book? That's just one of the everyday things these guys find to sing about. Anything in their field of vision or general scope of knowledge is fair game. If you cross paths with them, so are you.
