After a month of just bein' alone he said, "I wonder what L.A.'s thinkin'"
Streets he roamed n search of a poem amongst the wild and drinkin'
When he sees cool dark skin n hot virgin white
The search was over at least 4 2night
When she co-signed and told him she was shy
Cool dark skin n hot virgin white
Shy
Lips say won't but her body say might
Shy
Looks like we're gonna take the long way home 2night
Oh baby
Shy

After a look much louder than words she said, "I passed my initiation
A friend of mine, he got killed and n retaliation
I shot the boy (pop, pop), huh, twice n the head, mm
No regrets, no sorrow
I'm goin' back 2morrow 2 make sure he's dead
Cuz if I don't, they'll call me a chicken, but U can call me shy"
With cool dark skin n hot virgin white
Shy
Lips say won't but her body say might
Shy
Looks like we're gonna take the long way home 2night

I
Shy
Shy
Lips say no but the body say might
Looks like we're gonna take the long way home
Looks like we're gonna take the long way home
Looks like we're gonna take the long way home 2night

The girl was rough, but he called her bluff
And he told her not 2 know was better
Fact or fiction he wondered
And that's when the rain and thunder got wetter
And at the top of the page he wrote shy
Cool dark skin n hot virgin white
Shy
Looks like we're gonna take the long way home 2night (Ooh)

Oh say it now, baby (Shy)
Cool dark skin n hot virgin white
Shy
Lips say won't but her body say might
Shy
Looks like we're gonna take the long way home 2night
Oh baby, don't U wanna b alone 2night?
(Shy) Yeah
(Oh yes) Ooh
(Shy) Shy
Shy
Looks like we're gonna take the long way home 2night
