Mm, said I'm willin' and I'm able
I'm ready 2 place my cards on the table
I've been holdin' back this feelin' 4 far 2 long
And now that I'm willin', it's a fact, it's truly mighty strong

Like a child lost n the wilderness
Till I reach my destination, I won't rest
Cuz I'm willin' and I'm able
I'm ready 2 place my cards on the table

There's some kings n my deck and a queen or 2
So U know there ain't nothin', nothin' that I wouldn't do
(Nothin' that I won't do)
It 'twas a long time comin', but now that it's here
All the non-believers better fear me

Cuz I'm willin (Willin' and able)
And I'm able (Shoo-do-doo)
I got a good and plenty cards, huh, 2 place on the table
I've been holdin' back this feelin' 4 far 2 long
And now that I'm willin' (This feelin')
This feelin' is truly mighty strong (Truly)
I'm willin', uh, able
My vision is all clear, uh, I'm feelin' kinda stable
U know I am, U know I am

I'm ready 2 whisper (Whatcha say?)
I'm ready 2 shout, yeah (Now whatcha say?)
I'm ready 2 scream from the highest mountain...
The highest mountain top (Now whatcha say...?)
Oh Lord
I'm willin', willin', able
I wanna dance and sing, somebody watch me do my thing
Oh! (Willin')
Oh! (Able)
Oh! (Willin' and able)
Oh! (Oh)
Oh! (Willin')
Oh! (Able)
Oh! (Willin' and able)
Oh! (Oh)
Oh!
I wanna dance and sing, somebody watch me do my thing
Dance and sing, let me watch U do ur thang (Oh)
Oh! (Bring it 2 me)
Oh! Oh!

Let me take a bite 2 see if U're ripe
I'm kinda thinkin' about takin' a hunk chunk
A piece of ur love 2night

Well hello, M.C. T on a mello
Swing low 2 the tempo as I flow on a roll, here we go
Willing and able 2 start the show right with that type of hype
I lay my cards on the table 2night
Don't take me light, my flow hits U just like a lead pipe
While I'm clockin'
U just ain't fussin' about the boots I'm knockin'
It ain't like that
Besides, I keep the Jimmy so get off my back
N fact U lack the knack
Step back b4 I show U how a fool acts, baby
{Muah} Yeah
