Workin', workin' up a black sweat {repeat}

I don't wanna take my clothes off but I do
Ooh, I don't wanna turn nobody on unless it's U
Oh, I don't wanna dance 2 hard, baby, but this is a groove
Yes it is funky
I'm hot and I don't care who knows it, I got a job 2 do (Think I don't?)
Yes (C'mon c'mon, uh)

I'm workin', workin' up a black sweat
I'm workin', ooh, workin' up a black sweat
I'm workin', ooh
Workin', workin' up a black sweat
Workin', workin' up a black sweat

I don't wanna break ur pride, mm, but I got 2
Got 2 hurt 'em
Uh (Gon' hurt 'em, baby)
U better take ur woman and hide, ooh, cuz I'm about 2
Uh (Tell 'em what U're 'bout 2 do, boy)
Got 2, got 2 show U what's really good
Break U off like U knew I would
I got a brand new dance and it's called the... uh

Workin', workin' up a black sweat
I'm workin', ooh, workin' up a black sweat
I'm workin', ah!
Oh!
Workin', workin' up a black sweat {repeat}

Breakdown
U can act hard if U want 2, this groove'll make U sweet
Mm
U'll b screamin' like a white lady when I count 2 3
1 2 3

Workin', ooh, workin' up a black sweat
I'm workin', ooh, workin' up a black sweat
I'm workin', I'm workin' up a black... ooh
Workin', ooh, workin' up a black... hey!
Black sweat
