Now you're thinkin' 'bout it Girl, you're thinkin' 'bout it What we got here How we fuckin' got here They recognized They just recognize I'm in a life without a home So this recognition's not enough And I don't care about nobody else 'Cause I've been on these streets for too long Too long, too long Baby, I've been on this too long
'Cause getting faded too long Got me on this rolling stone So I take another hit Kill another serotonin With a hand full of beans And a chest full of weed Got me singing 'bout a bitch While I'm blowing out my steam Yeah, I know I got my issues Why you think I fuckin' flow? And I'ma keep on smoking 'til I can't hit another note
Ooh, but until then I got you, ooh Baby, I got you, ooh Until you're used to my face And my mystery fades I got you, ooh
So, baby, love me, oh Before they all love me Until you won't love me, oh Because they'll all love me, ooh I'll be different, oh I think I'll be different, ooh I hope I'm not different, oh And I hope you'll still listen
But until then Baby, I got you, ooh I got you, oh, ohh Girl, I still got you, oh-woah And I got you, ooh, whoa

"Cruise" climbed from 6-5 on the Hot 100 in its 34th week. In doing so it set a record for the slowest ascent to the Top 5 in the chart's history, which was beaten by Imagine Dragon's "Radioactive" 42-week clamber to #4 three weeks later.
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.
