Band, uh

It's just a thing with me, U know
If C somethin' that like, it's ah... have 2 go 4 it
& like what C, baby
Uh, come here

got real bored on a Friday night
couldn't find a damn thing 2 do
So pulled out a suit about the same color as my BMW
drove 2 the party & stepped on N just 2 C what could C
Everybody knew what was lookin' 4
was lookin' 4 some company - that's right!

Jerk out
Jerkin' everything N sight (& U know that)
'm talkin' about the jerk out
got the cash, got the ride (Oh Lord)
Got 2 make some love 2night
& U know got the look

saw a real fine thing sittin' by the bar
She looked kinda all alone
So slid on over & asked her name
The Stella was bad 2 the bone
showed her my stash & kissed her cheek ({muah})
The only kind of rap it takes
She knew was bad when jerked her 2 my ride
She said, "How much money U make?"

Let's just say it'll B more money (Jerk out)
Than U'll ever C N ur lifetime - haha!
Jerkin' everything N sight
'm talkin' about the jerk out (No, oh)
Got 2 make some love 2night

Uh
Jerk it, jerk it
'm talkin' about the jerk it, jerk it - jerk out
Jerk it, jerk it
'm talkin' about the jerk it, jerk it - jerk out

took her 2 my crib & laid her down
Her body felt kinda right
Maybe was wrong but what the hell
figured that was what she liked ("'m impressed")
said, "Baby, don't get 2 comfortable
Cuz really like 2 sleep alone
Leave ur number on the table by my data bank
love U but U got 2 go" ("What?")

Jerk out
U ain't got 2 go home but U got 2 get the hell outta here
Jerkin' everything N sight
Uh, 'm talkin' about the jerk out (Hey, no)
Got 2 make some love 2night (Everybody)
All night
Jerk out (Jerk it, jerk it)
What's ur number, girl? ("Hmph")
Jerkin' everything N sight
The master of the jerk out (Hey, oh)
Got 2 make some love 2night
gotta make some love, uh

Jerk it, jerk it
'm talkin' about the jerk it, jerk it - jerk out
Jerk it, jerk it
