U ready?
No, U ain't ready
I mean ready 4 us
U know U want me like a new pair of shoes
Whoo oh

This could b us but U b playin'
This could b us but U keep on foolin' around
U're the cage 2 my dove, I'm just sayin'
4ever and ever n love, ooh baby, yeah, this could b us
U know u want me like a new pair of shoes

This could b us, this could b us

U... U say U ain't ready, ready 2 go steady
Ain't ready 4 us (No)
Cuz what I got'll make U weak n the knees
Take ur energy, ooh baby, make U sleep 4 a week
Sex with me ain't enough, that's why we gotta do it metaphysically

This could b us, this could b us
This could b us, this could b us

I... I know U're lovin' ur freedom
Cuz ur freedom is payin' ur bills, yes it is (Oh funky dollar)
Boyfriends, U think U don't need 'em
But n the middle of the cold, cold night, I think U will (Sho' U right)

Yeah (This could b us)
Yes (But U b playin')
Oh yeah (This could b us)
U sho'nuff could b (But U keep on foolin' around)

We... we've come up on a crossroad and we got 2 decide
Which way 2 turn, which way, yes, which way 2 turn
R we gonna go... over the bridge... b4, b4 it burns?
Don't U let it burn, let it burn, baby (Ooh!)

This could b us, this could b us, oh yeah
This could b us
Oh U gotta stop playin', baby

Everybody knows, everybody knows
That a woman needs love (L-O-V-E, love)
Like a river flow, like a river flow (Inside)
If it's good, that's all she thinkin' of
(Metaphysical cookie, milk and cream)
Sleep alone if U wanna
(Nothing mystical, let me lick the kitty clean)
But like a new pair of shoes
(And after that U can put me on my back)
U gonna wanna show me off 2 ur friends
(Look 4 candy n my purple psychodelic pimpsack)
When I... ooh!
This right here, this could b us
Whoo oh

This could b us (This could b us)
Oh yeah (But U b playin')
Yes U do now (This could b us)
Honey, honey, honey (But U keep on foolin' around)
See that U're the cage 2 my dove, yes, I'm just sayin'
4ever and ever n love, ooh baby, yeah, this could b us
This could b us {repeat}

Can't U see it, baby?
U're the cage 2 my dove, only 1 I've been dreamin' of
4ever and ever n love, ooh baby, yeah, this could, this could b...
This could b us but U don't have time 4 me no more
