Some people tell me got great legs
Can't figure out Y U make me beg
Does not compute, don't not compute
U think U'r special, well, so do
Y do special women make me cry?
Does not compute, baby
Somethin' don't compute

Must B something N the water they drink
It's been the same with every girl 've had
Must B something N the water they drink
Cuz Y else would a woman wanna treat a man so bad?

People think 'm kinda smart
Y must a fella stop with U b4 he starts?
Don't not compute
'd buy U clothing
'd 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 've had
Must B something N the water they drink
Y else would a woman wanna treat a man so bad?

Must B something N the water they drink
It's been the same with every girl 've had
Must B something N the water they drink
Cuz Y else would a woman wanna treat a man so bad?
Oh Lord

I said must B something N the water they drink
The same with every girl 've had
Must B something N the water they drink
Cuz Y else would a woman wanna treat a man so bad?
