Baby, baby, baby
What's it gonna B?
Baby, baby, baby
Is it him or is it me?
Don't make me waste my time
Don't make me lose my mind, baby

Baby, baby, baby
Can't U stay with me 2night?
Oh baby, baby, baby
Don't my kisses please U right?
U were so hard 2 find
The beautiful ones, they hurt U every time

Paint a perfect picture
Bring 2 life a vision N 1's mind
The beautiful ones always smash the picture
Always every time

If told U, baby
That was N love with U
Oh baby, baby, baby
If we got married, would that B cool?

U make me so confused
The beautiful ones, U always seem 2 lose
Baby, baby, baby
Baby

What's it gonna B, baby?
Do U want him or do U do want me?
Cuz want U!
Said want U!
Tell me, baby, do U want me?
gotta know, gotta know do U want me?
Baby, baby, baby, listen 2 me!

Whoo! Look here

1 thing, 1 thing's 4 certain

'm begging down on my knees, want U!!
Yeah, want U!!
Baby, baby, baby, baby, want U!!
Whoo!
Yes do!
