No!
Uh, uh

'm goin' down 2 Alphabet St.
'm gonna crown the 1st girl that meet
'm gonna talk so sexy
She'll want me from my head 2 my feet (Yeah, yeah, yeah)
Yes she will (Yeah, yeah, yeah)
Yeah (Yeah, yeah, yeah)
Uh

'm gonna drive my daddy's Thunderbird
A white rad ride
'66 ('67) so glam, it's absurd
'm gonna put her (bop, bop) N the back seat
& drive her 2 Tennessee (Yeah, yeah, yeah)
Mm, mm, mm (Yeah, yeah, yeah)
Tennessee (Yeah, yeah, yeah)
Drive her!

Excuse me, baby
don't mean 2 B rude (Yeah, yeah)
guess 2night 'm just not
'm just not N the mood (Yeah, yeah)
So if U don't mind
would like 2 watch (Yeah, yeah, yeah) (Ooh)
Ow! (Yeah, yeah, yeah)
Can ? (Yeah, yeah, yeah)
Ow! (Yeah, yeah, yeah)
Can ...?

We're goin' down, down, down
If that's the only way
2 make this cruel, cruel world
Hear what we got 2 say
Put the right letters 2gether
& make a better day (Yeah, yeah, yeah)
Better days (Yeah, yeah, yeah)
It's OK (Yeah, yeah, yeah)
Maybe it's the only way
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah

Cat, we need U 2 rap (Uh) (No!)
Cat, we need U 2 rap
Don't give it 2 us slow
Cuz we know U know
New power soul
Gotta, gotta, gotta go! Ow! (No!)

Talk 2 me lover, come & tell me what U taste
Didn't ur mama tell U life is 2 good 2 waste?
(Put ur love down) {repeat}
Did she tell U Lovesexy was the glam of them all?
U can hang, U can trip on it, U surely won't fall
No side effects, the feeling last 4ever
Straight up, it tastes good, it makes U feel clever
U kiss ur enemies like U know U should
& then U jerk ur body like a horny pony would
U jerk ur body like a horny pony would (No!)
Now run & tell ur mom about that
Ow! (Oh)
& while U'r at it, tell ur pop about this!

Yeah, yeah
Put ur love down, baby, when ur money get shot
No! (Yeah, yeah)
Put ur love down, baby, when ur money get shot (Ho!)
Put ur love down, baby, when ur money get shot (Ho!)
Put ur love down, baby, when ur money get shot (Ho! Ho!)
Put ur love down, baby
