Hey sugar, come here
got somethin' 2 lay on ur mind

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

If C U N a restaurant, ooh
Baby, U'r all want
Ur sexy body, ur curly brown hair
Try 2 run if U want 2
don't care

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

If C U walkin' down the street
U'd B the 1 wanna meet
U dress so smart
U talk so neat
U'r so fine
It's hard not 2 eat cha, baby

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

B is 4 bold
Girl, that's how U make me feel
is 4 ignorant
The situation's real (So real)
G is 4 my girlfriend
Yah, U know got another 1
(G is 4 my girlfriend)
But that ain't gonna stop me & U from havin' fun
(But nothing gonna stop me, stop me)

Big tall wall
If C U N a restaurant

Big tall wall (Oh baby, ooh)
Stone circle so U can't get out, get out

True love, true love is what it's all about

Big tall wall (Ooh...)
B is 4 bold, that's how U make me feel

Ooh, pretty baby, U really take me there (Ooh)
Baby doll, U'r so glam
Everytime C U, wanna slam

Ooh, baby doll, U'r so glam
Everytime C U, wanna slam

Didn't anybody tell U that...
My modus operandi left a lot 2 B desired?

Oh yeah, U'll have company
Take ur time cuz N the back room, uh

Heavyweight bitch, U'r so mean
Everytime C U, wanna scream
Bald man N a barber shop, baby

U dress so smart
U talk so neat
U'r just my style, girl
(Lemme put yo behind my big tall wall) {repeat sample}
U wanna C my, U wanna C my walls?
( C U walkin' down the street
U'd B the 1 that want 2 meet
U'r so fine - it's hard not 2 eat cha)
U wanna C my bridge?
Whatcha want, whatcha wanna C? (B is 4 bold, baby)
Is how U make me feel

The situation's real
G is 4 my girlfriend, huh ('m gonna build a...)
U know got another 1
But that ain't gonna stop...
Me & U from havin', me & U from havin' fun
