    What is it we wanna do?
    Now that I'm allowed to be alone with you
    Birthday Girl its your birthday
    Wherever you wanna go
    Now you are old enough to go and see the are-rated show now
    Are-rated show
    [Black Thought]
    Yo, She said she was a magazine editor named Jenning
    Backstage in high heels and painted on jeans
    Probably had the most devious eyes I'd ever seen
    Told me she was twenty-two she was only seventeen
    She had sumthin' to hide she snuck in from outside
    And got everybody gassed like the car I drive
    With all that grown lady ass and my for rap vibe
    She said she came to see them roots boy fallout live
    But listen,

    [Chorus]

    Verse 2 [Black Thought]
    You see the girls look good but they brains not ready
    I talk to a woman, he mind more steady
    Probably something in the way they designed just more steady
    I just let you recite cause the line so heavy
    But I shoulda known better cause now I feel like America's underbelly
    R. Kelly got a smart better less, internet predators, chat-room irregulars
    This not my twist
    You trying to send me to the therapist

    [Chorus]

    Verse 3: [Black Thought]
    Now she told me cheddar cheese grits
    Two tomato fried fish
    Cause she heard its my dish
    Tryna be my sidekick
    All the people all around thinking she was my chick
    Saying DAMN the girl thick
    But she ain't no twenty-six
    Looking at me like am up to sumthin' on the funny tip
    Like I ever been the one to honey jib
    Its your birthday so let me know the gift you wanna get
    In fact blow out the candles on the cake and make a wish for me

    Hook [Patrick Strump]
    They can't really seem to look away
    So they tried asking her to stay
    Fake I.D. you won't get turned away
    You look lovely tonight
    Now you are old enough to buy a gun
    So many better ways of having fun
    Right now I can only think of one
    You look lovely tonight.

    [Chorus]
