  • Oh while we are waiting so long, I'm suffocating
    Oh while we are waiting so long, I'm suffocating

    Boy it's now or never
    Time we get together
    Been a long time coming, now I need that loving
    I like the way you tease me
    But let's just make this easy
    Put me in control
    We can switch roles

    And I take the lead
    You're so far behind me
    You know what I need
    I'm not gonna stop

    Whatever the weather
    We gon' be better together
    So what's up baby?
    What about us?

    'Cause I've been watchin' and waitin'
    Why don't you give it or take it?
    So what's up baby?
    What about us?

    Watcha doin' to my head? (Na, na, na, na, na, na)
    Should be here with me instead (Na, na, na, na, na, na)
    What about those words you said? (Na, na, na, na, na, na)
    What about us?
    (What about us?)

    Oh while we are waiting so long, I'm suffocating
    Oh while we are waiting so long, I'm suffocating

    I love to hear you whisper
    Take it, take it lower
    Don't be 'fraid to show her, what you freakin' do
    'Cause we can do it nightly
    You get me excited
    Now it's my turn (yes it's my turn)

    So give it to me, why are we waiting?
    I know what you need
    And I'm not gonna stop

    Whatever the weather
    We gon' be better together
    So what's up baby?
    What about us?

    'Cause I've been watchin' and waitin'
    Why don't you give it or take it?
    So what's up baby?
    What about us?

    Watcha doin' to my head? (Na, na, na, na, na, na)
    Should be here with me instead (Na, na, na, na, na, na)
    What about those words you said? (Na, na, na, na, na, na)
    What about us?
    (What about us?)
    What about
    What about us?
    What about us?

    Whatever the weather
    We gon' be better together
    So what's up baby?
    What about us? (What about us, yeah)

    'Cause I've been watchin' and waitin'
    Why don't you give it or take it?
    So what's up baby?
    What about us?

    Watcha doin' to my head? (Na, na, na, na, na, na)
    Should be here with me instead (Na, na, na, na, na, na)
    What about those words you said? (Na, na, na, na, na, na)
    What about us?
    (What about us?)

    Let me take the lead
    (Na, na, na, na, na, na)
    You know what I need
    (Na, na, na, na, na, na)
    Put my mind at ease
    And tell me what about us?
