The greatest romance that's ever been sold (Uh, yeah, c'mon)
Ooh (Uh...)
Yeah, c'mon c'mon, uh...

So whataya know, U and me (Turn it up... c'mon)
Finally face 2 face
Checkin' each other up and down (Up and down, baby)
N all the obvious places

All the places n the world we live
They can't hold a candle 2 the light U give (Pharrell, Pharrell)
I have a outlook that's truly uncommoning (Say word)
If U follow me, U're more than a honor man (Word)
The reason why I'm placed on the earth's face
Is spittin' rhymes, gettin' mine's watchin' ur waist (Uh...)
Hourglass, then U give me hot flash (Word)
This romance give heat of a sonic blast (Remember 2 come when U wack)

So this is where U end and U and I begin (C'mon, uh...)
This is where U and I, U and I begin (C'mon, c'mon) (Because, baby)

The greatest romance that's ever been sold (Ooh)
And I ain't no thug 2night, I'ma stay home and make love 2night, c'mon
The greatest romance that's ever been sold
I ain't tryin' 2 bang, maybe this song'll help me change, c'mon (Baby, baby)

Now ur mind is open (Now ur mind is open, baby)
2 poetry seldom heard
U're heart has never been broken (Broken, baby)
Until U've heard these words

Givin' off the air like ur thang don't smell (Word, c'mon)
U better answer all of that love inside ur heart right now (Uh...)
Shorty look, n the scheme of it all we could really make it work (Yeah)
When our back's on the wall, uh
(Pharrell, Pharrell) (Neptunes) (I can't hear ya)
Give a week and let ur man know I'll come runnin', he's heartless
Hold my hand, yo, he just frontin' (The Artist)
It's time now, let's dance eternally
They lookin' at us laughin' but our love is what's concernin' me
(Pharrell, Pharrell) (Tell me now, c'mon)

And n the middle of it all (Uh... what U wear?)
We kiss and like rain we fall (Uh... I'm n the car)
(It's the Artist, baby, n2 the greatest)
N2 the greatest romance that's ever been sold (Romance, baby)
(Love soldier) (Ooh baby, ooh baby, baby)
And I ain't no thug 2night, I'ma stay home and make love 2night (What?)
The greatest romance that's ever been sold
I ain't tryin' 2 bang, maybe this song'll help me change, c'mon
(Ooh) (Pharrell, Pharrell)

I ain't no thug 2night, I'ma stay home and make love 2night
I ain't tryin' 2 bang, maybe this song'll help me change, c'mon
I ain't no thug 2night, I'ma stay home and make love 2night, baby
I ain't tryin' 2 bang, maybe this song'll help me change, c'mon

Oh, I know U feel me, I know that U can dance (Uh) (Yo)
But what do U know about the greatest romance?
Not what U think but what U believe (Tell me)
What was the real reason that Adam never left Eve?
And if the truth sounds like a memory (Oh)
Then U know it was meant 2 b, meant 2 b
Leave ur inhibitions behind (I ain't no thug 2night)
C'mon, come on and see (Why?)
The greatest romance (I ain't no thug 2night) (Uh)

So this is where U end and U and I begin (U) (Uh... c'mon, uh... yeah)
It's the greatest, baby, c'mon
The greatest romance that's ever been sold (Yeah, hey baby, don't worry)
I ain't no thug 2night, I'ma stay home and make love 2night, baby (What?)
The greatest romance that's ever been sold (Uh, c'mon) (Word, baby)
I ain't tryin' 2 bang, maybe this song'll help me change, c'mon
I ain't no thug 2night, I'ma stay home and make love 2night, baby
I ain't tryin' 2 bang, maybe this song'll help me change, c'mon
