I was only 17 when he saw me
The apple of my daddy's eye
Cute but not jaded, my hair n2 braids
He looked at me and just said hi
Was it his cologne or the style of his hair?
They told me I should stay away and not go there
Sometimes I'm all alone and don't see him
I wish it was different but I don't care

I'm a kept woman
He don't see nobody but me
We got a pretty little house
And only me and him got the key
A kept woman
Sometimes I don't know why
A kept woman
Sometimes I cry

He likes it when I dance 4 no reason
He likes it when I dance
But he doesn't like it when I raise my voice 2 him
I try 2 stop but I can't
Was it his cologne or the style of his hair?
I don't know how but he took me there
And now I hug my pillow more nights than not
It's crazy but the butterflies just don't stop (Oh)

Cuz I'm a kept woman
He don't see nobody but me (Nobody)
We got a pretty little house
And only me and him got the key
A kept woman
Sometimes I don't know why (I don't know)
A kept woman
Sometimes I cry
Yeah, yeah

Kept woman
Kept woman
He's the hotness n my fire
I give him anything he desires
It may sound crazy but it suits me fine
Cuz ain't nobody ever take away what's mine

Cuz I'm a kept woman
Cuz he's every single thing I need (Spiritual, physical)
Kept woman (Chemical, emotional)
Everything n between
Don't U know that I'm a kept woman?
Ooh, he loves me like no other (A love U never seen)
I'm a kept woman
And I'm his queen
Yes I am
Oh yes I am
And I don't care, no
Kept woman, I don't care (No)
Kept woman, I don't care (I don't)
Kept woman, I don't care (Don't care)
