'm gonna build a big tall wall
Stone circle so U can't get out
Big tall wall, uh
True love is what it's all about

When C U walkin' down the street
My heart does a double beat
wanna rap but can't find the line
That'll groove an angel so divine
When U look at me, drippity drip
All my cool go slippity slip
keep trippin' on the thought of U, huh
& when get U, what 'm gonna do...

'm gonna build a big tall wall, baby huh
Stone circle so U can't get out
Big tall wall, baby huh
True love is what it's all about

If C U N a restaurant
can't eat & baby, U'r all want
U make me sweat, girl
U jerk all my cool
feel like a kid N nursery school
All the others claim ecstacy, huh
All know is what U do 2 me
U got me feelin' like the head of a snare
Come on, baby, hit me
don't care

Cuz got a big tall wall, baby huh
Stone circle so U can't get out
Big tall wall, huh, baby huh
True love is what it's all about
& yeah
Baby, mm
Baby
Big tall wall, uh-huh
Big tall wall
Lemme put yo behind my big tall wall, uh
Baby huh
Stone circle so U can't get out (Lord)
Big tall wall, baby huh
Ooh, pretty mama, U can scream & shout
Oh now

When C U walkin' down the street
My heart does a double beat
Big tall wall
True love is what it's all about {repeat}
All about, all about
Big tall wall, big tall wall
Lemme put yo behind my big tall wall
Big tall wall, big tall wall
Lemme put yo behind my big tall wall

Hey
C'mon, y'all
Tall wall, huh
Tall wall
Lemme put yo behind my big tall wall
Hey yeah

Big tall wall, hmph
Big tall wall, baby {repeat}
Stone circle so U can't get out
Alright
Tall wall, baby
True love... is what it's all about
Big ole, big ole tall wall
Well yeah...

C'mon, y'all
Big ole tall wall
Tall wall
Big ole tall wall, yeah
C'mon, y'all
Baby
Ooh wee

'm kinda sweet, baby
Big ole tall wall
Tall wall
About the tall wall
C'mon
