I know that's right cuz I am the latest fashion, hahaha...

I know I said that I'd b here always
But I what I didn't tell U is that...
This year the latest fashion is 2 lie n the heat of passion
This year the latest fashion is 2 lie n the heat of passion

People, tell us what we want 2 hear (Time)

Squawk! Hallelujah, whoa
Uh

Everybody wanna tell me how 2 play the game
When I run it better than a Madame runs dames
Tryin' 2 beat me is like playin' pool with a rope
My funk will leave ya dead cuz it's good and plenty dope
All n all, I'm still the king and all y'all's the court
If U're pregnant about ruling me, U better get abortions
Yes, it's jacked cuz I'm back
And I'm harder than a heart attack
Said I'm the cure 4 any disease cuz ain't nobody funky like me

Hahaha... (Go Morris...)
Don't b a fool
This year the latest fashion is 2 lie n the heat of passion
The latest fashion {repeat}
Hahaha...
