Uh
Uh, mm mm
Say fellas, U ever have 1 them girls that just bad?
Know what I mean?
No, I ain't talkin' about fine, I'm talkin' about bad
Cuss all the time, steal... man, she rob her own mom's
Down at the post office I got 2 pictures
I'm talkin' about 1 of Bébé's Kids, y'all - bad
Hear me?
Oh, she fine 2
Fine

I don't know why I want that girl
I don't know why I want that girl

'Twas the middle of the summer, mm
Huh, rather late n the day
Uh, this pretty thang, she walked up 2 me, oh Lord
She said she was good 2 play, oh
She told me 2 close my eyes, oh, uh
So she could get a kiss, ooh
I said, "Sure, honey" and obliged
The girl snatched my medallion and called me a bitch runnin'

I don't know why, mm, I want that girl
I don't know why, mm, I want that girl
I don't know why I want that girl
I don't know why I want that girl

I found out her place of employment, mm
Dry cleaning, "We Do Fine" (Hahaha...)
2 manifest a little unenjoyment n her life
It was all that was runnin' thru the middle of my mind
There r many elements: wind, fire, water, huh
But none quite like the element of surprise, mm

See, my baby, she gave me that medallion and it, uh...
U know, it mean a lot 2 me so... huh
I walked up n that piece with a disguise on and I said, "Hey!
I don't know what ur name or ur game is, huh
But U better get ur G-hind down on the floor
Cuz U see, I'm n a mood 2 do somethin' koo-koo 2 U"
So she gave me that kiss and ran out the back door
Out!

I don't know why I want that girl, mm
I don't know why, huh, but I want that girl
I don't know why, ooh, I want that girl
I don't know why but I want that girl
Yeah

Oh, turnin' around the corner, thought that she would get by
Huh, much 2 her surprise
Michael Yardbird dropped both his crutches downstairs
Tripped baby on her backside
Holdin' on the banister, slidin' down slow
U know he about 2 fall down all them stairs, yo
And my medallion's on the center line
She dropped my piece n the middle of the street
The taxi cab 'bout 2 run it down (Beep beep, oh yeah)
But when the bling-bling caught the driver's eyes
He slammed on his brakes and jumped out his ride
And as he was just about 2 put his fat neck up n my jewels
Uh-uh-uh, nigga
Yardbird bounced down the stairs of that house
Crushin' the bad girl like the Union Army crushed the Deep South
And when the driver turned his head 2 get his peek on
I entered my medallion and broke the other way
Sister was limpin' but she was kinda good 2 play, huh

I don't know why I want that girl (I know)
I don't know why I want that girl
I don't know why I want that girl, uh (Don't ask)
I don't know why, why I want that girl
