Some people tell me I got great legs
Can't figure out why U make me beg
Does not compute, don't not compute
U think U're special, well, so do I
Why do special women make me cry?
Does not compute, it don't not compute

Must b something n the water they drink
It's been the same with every girl I've had
Must b something n the water they drink
Cuz why else would a woman wanna treat a man so bad?

Some people think I'm kinda cute
But that don't compute when it comes 2 Y-O-U
Does not compute, somethin', mama, don't compute
What's the hang-up, what's the scam?
Guess U think I'm just another 1 of, 1 of ur fans
Does not compute, somethin', honey, don't compute

Must b something n the water they drink
It's been the same with every girl I've had
Must b something n the water U drink
Cuz why else would a woman wanna treat a man so bad?
I've got 2 get 2 U, baby

Mmm, some people think I'm kinda smart
Why must a fella stop with U b4 he starts?
Does not compute, mama, somethin' don't compute
I'd buy U clothing, buy U fancy cars
But U gotta talk 2 me, baby, tell me who U really r

Must b something n the water they drink
It's been the same with every girl I've had
Must b something n the water U drink
Why else would a woman wanna treat a man so bad?
Yeah
Yeah-ooh! (Must b something n the water U drink)
Yeah! (Does not compute) {repeat}
(Must b something n the water U drink)
Bitch!
Haha, U think U're special? (Must b something n the water U drink)
Well, so do I
(Must b something n the water U drink)
Why n God's name do U wanna make me cry?
Why? Why? (Must b something n the water U drink)
Ooh (Must b something n the water U drink)
I'd do anything 4 U, anything
Why don't U talk 2 me? (Must b something n the water U drink)
Tell me who U r
Don't do this 2 me (Must b something n the water U drink)
Ooh
Please don't do this (Must b something n the water U drink)
(Must b something n the water U drink)
Why?
Why?

I do love U, I do
Or else I wouldn't go thru all the things I do
