Another Friday night, another tired line
"Baby, U sho' look good - hey baby, what's ur sign?"
How many ask 4 ur number b4 they even know ur name?
How many out there tired of playin' this silly ol' worn out game?

Hey, when the lights go down and it's just U 2
That's when U and ur lover, yeah, do what they're s'posed 2 do
That's when U feel the heat
Hotter than July
That's when U and ur baby, baby, yeah
When ur baby get it right
That's when ur baby get it right

How can U tell him no when he loves U so?
He'll buy U anything, anything U want
His eyes all aglow
He'll know U're good 2 go
Dinner... n the finest restaurant, yeah
Girl, U better know
Reelin' until he do it couple times n a row
It feels the same, it's just a game
Go back 2 do whatever, he'll sleep outside ur door

When the lights go down, yeah, and there's just U 2
That's when U hear the sounds of what true lovers do, yeah
And when U feel the heat, y'all
Hotter than July
That's when U and ur baby, when U and ur baby get it right
Yeah, that's when ur baby get it right now
That's when ur baby get it right

That's when ur baby get it right
That's when ur baby play with it right
Baby get it right
