"Hey, this is Rhonda, I can't come 2 the phone right now
But if U leave me ur name and number after the tone
I'll call U right back, thank U"

Contrary 2 what U've been told
This is WNPG and we have just taken control
Ultra fantasy mix

Do it, do it (Testin' the mic, 1 2)
Do it, do it till the job gets done

It's 2 o'clock n the mornin' and I just can't sleep (Just can't sleep)
Outside the rain is pourin', I'm lonely as can b (Somebody's somebody)
Maybe 2night'll b different than the nights b4 (Maybe not)
I need 2 feel someone beside me, I can't b alone no more (B alone 2night)

2night I wanna b somebody's somebody
(Do it, do it) (Testin' the mic, 1 2)
2night I wanna belong 2 someone
(Do it, do it till the job gets done) (Someone)
2night I wanna b somebody's somebody
(Do it, do it) (Testin' the mic, 1 2)
2night I want somebody that'll do it till the job gets done
Do it till the job gets done

This big ol' world can b so empty livin' n it all alone (Just a telephone)
I realize n its best disguise, a pretty house don't make a home (No no no)
There's a hunger deep inside of me, there's a fire burnin' (Burnin', burnin')
I'm ready 4 the ultra fantasy (Ready, baby) (Can't U see my yearnin'?)

2night I wanna b somebody's somebody
(Do it, do it) (Testin' the mic, 1 2)
2night I wanna belong 2 someone
(Do it, do it till the job gets done) (Someone) (Testin' the mic)
2night I wanna b somebody's somebody
(Do it, do it) (Testin' the mic, 1 2)
2night I want somebody that'll do it till the job gets done
Do it till the job gets done (Sex, baby)

Do it (Somebody) {repeat}
Do it till the job gets done (Ultra fantasy)
Do it, do it, do it (2night there's no mercy n sight)
Do it till the job gets done (Yeah)
Right there (Yeah)
Right there (Do it) (Work it)
Right there (Yeah)
Do it till the job gets done (Work it, work it)
Just all alone, me and my telephone
I'm just tryin' 2 figure out should I... (Do it)
Make this phone call (Do it)
Yeah (Do it till the job gets done)
"Hey, this is Rhonda, I can't come 2 the phone right now
But if U leave me ur name and number after the tone
I'll call U right back"

It's 2:05 n the mornin' and I got no 1 2 call (Somebody)
I'm longin' 2 hear another voice inside these lonely walls (Somebody's somebody)
Maybe 2night'll b different than the nights b4 (Got 2 do somethin')
I need 2 feel someone beside me, I can't b alone no more

2night I wanna b somebody's somebody
(Do it, do it) (Come do it)
2night I wanna belong 2 someone
(Do it, do it till the job gets done) (Someone, 1 2)
2night I wanna b somebody's somebody
(Do it, do it) (Somebody)
2night I want somebody that'll do it till the job gets done (Baby)
Do it till the job gets done (Oh yeah)

2night I wanna b somebody's somebody
(Right there, yeah, right there, work it) (Ooh)
Oh baby, where U at? (Do it)
Do it till the job gets done
"Thank U"
