Alright, cut, fade 2 black
Now bring it up and let me kick the facts
And I'ma do U like U wanna... b done
Continental
Continental
This is the continental, this is the main thing

I can see U dancin' 4 a pack of wolves
I can see them fighting 4 a chance 2 pull
But they ain't got a shot because the way 2 make U hot
Is 2 let U do ur own thing instead of tryin' 2 make U stop
Go on ahead my dear and dance, this is the new romance
Whatever U want 2 do, I'll make it happen fast

I am the continental, I am the main thing
Whatever come 4 and after me is yin-yang
Why settle 4 a star when U can have the sun?
Come on, let me do U like U want 2 b done
Ow

Alright, cut, dissolve 2 a purple floor
U and me starring n a movie called "Amour"
3 quarters n a glass, I see U smile and ask
"If I flip 'em on my stomach, will U marry my ass?" (Whoo)

I'd b like, "Yeah main," cuz I want the main thing (Continental)
Whatever come 4 and after, that is yin-yang
Why settle 4 a star when U can have the sun?
Come on, let me do U like U want 2 b done
Ow

Come and let me do ya like U wanna b done
Come and let me show U how a boy and girl supposed 2 have fun
Hand 2 hand, 1 2 1
Come, let me do ya... like ya, like U wanna b done
Yeah
Whoo (Con-con-continental)

I wanna kiss U, baby yeah, I want ur lips
I wanna kiss U like U know, like U know wanna b kissed
All tongue, yeah, that's right, I want all ur germs
I can b hecka teacher if U wanna learn

Cuz I am the continental, I am the main thing
Whatever come 4 and after me is yin-yang
Why settle 4 a star when U can have the sun?
Come and let me do ya like U wanna b done!

Baby, how U wanna, how U wanna b done?
Just say the word and we can start from number 1
And go the distance, baby, until U tell me stop
I'll lose myself inside U till U get all I got
Talk 2 me, baby (ooh), tell me how U wanna b done
Yeah (Ooh)
How U wanna b done?

Shall I go n a circle like the merry-go-round
That U and ur girlfriends used 2 ride all up and down?
Talk 2 me, baby, tell me how U want 2 b done
How U wanna b done?
Shall I write the alphabet (A B C D E F G)
Or shall I just write my name? (Ooh)
U tell me, U're the ruler n this telephone game
I could b a slave when it comes down 2 U
I'll do any and everything U want me 2 do
And U know why? (Why?)
Cuz I want U 2 have fun
So how U wanna b done?
Oh yeah, baby, yeah (How U wanna b done?)

Baby, how U wanna, how U wanna b done?
Just say the word and we can start from number 1
And go the distance, baby, until U tell me stop
I'll lose myself inside U till U get all I got
Talk 2 me, baby, tell me how U wanna b done
Tell

I want U 2 imagine U're making angels, angels n the snow
And kiss a hundred revolutions nice and slow
(Why r U way over there?)
Then I see U on the beat do a def striptease
No no, leave the Chanel around ur neck, please, baby, please
Now do something I've never seen b4 (How U wanna...)
(How U wanna b done?)
Crawl over 2 me on ur stomach, more, baby, more
Now pull me down on top of U and grind really fast
(Tell me how U wanna b done)
Take both hands with all ur might and squeeze my... yeah
Roll me over until U're back on top
Then I want U 2 kiss me until I make U stop
That's how...
That's how I wanna b done (Tell me how U wanna b done)
