  • Yeah!
    Yeah!
    Remember the time, baby, yeah!

    I ain't got no money
    I ain't got no car to take you on a date
    I can't even buy you flowers
    But together we be the perfect soul mates
    Talk to me, girl

    (Oh) baby, it's alright now, you ain't gotta floss for me
    If we go and touch, you can still touch my love it's free
    We can work without the perks, just you and me
    Thug it out till we get it right

    Baby, if you strip, you can get a tip
    'Cause I like you just the way you are
    (I'm about to strip, and I want it quick
    Can you handle me the way I are?)
    I don't need the cheese or the car keys
    Boy, I like you just the way you are
    Let me see ya strip, you can get a tip
    'Cause I like, I like, I like

    I ain't got no Visa
    I ain't got no Red American Express
    We can't go nowhere exotic
    It don't matter 'cause I'm the one that loves you best
    Talk to me, girl

    (Oh) baby, it's alright now, you ain't gotta floss for me
    If we go and touch, you can still touch my love it's free
    We can work without the perks, just you and me
    Thug it out till we get it right

    Baby, if you strip, you can get a tip
    'Cause I like you just the way you are
    (I'm about to strip, and I want it quick
    Can you handle me the way I are?)
    I don't need the cheese or the car keys
    Boy, I like you just the way you are
    Let me see ya strip, you can get a tip
    'Cause I like you just the way you are

    Baby girl, I don't got a huge ol' house; I rent a room in a house
    Listen, baby girl, I ain't got a motorboat, but I can float ya boat
    So listen, baby girl
    Once you get a dose of D.O.E., you gon' want some mo'
    So listen, baby girl
    When I make it, I want you there, want you there, yeah Writer/s: Balewa Muhammed, Candice Nelson, Floyd Hills, Garland Mosley, John Maultsby, Keri Hilson, Timothy Mosley
