Ooh...

U say that U love me like a river
A river U say'll never run dry
'd rather hear U say 4ever
Instead of smilin', 'd rather C U cry

Don't use that magical, mysterious
Intoxicating, joy fantastic
Fascinating word called love
Unless U love me 2 the 9's
This is the only kind of love
That 've been dreaming of
The kind of love that takes over
Ur body, mind & soul
Love 2 the 9's, baby (2 the 9's)
wanna B loved 2 the 9's
wanna B loved, sugar (2 the 9's)
wanna B loved 4 all time

Baby, take a real good look at my face
Cuz honey, it just might B the last time
Maybe U should've played an ace
Instead U played the queen
U'd B better off cheatin' than tryin' 2 read my mind

Don't use that magical, mysterious
Intoxicating, joy fantastic
Fascinating word called love
Unless U love me 2 the 9's
This is the only kind of love
That 've been dreaming of
The kind of love that takes over
Ur body, mind & soul
Love 2 the 9's, baby (2 the 9's)
wanna B loved 2 the 9's
wanna B loved, sugar (2 the 9's)
wanna B loved 4 all time

Love me 2 the (9's)
Stay awake 4 14 hours
Listen 2 the band play new power soul
We got 2 get with this
Dancin' 2 the beat till we lose our mind control
Can get a witness?
'm lookin' 4 a lover
With a body that say some mo'
wanna C the booty boom
B4 even let her get close enuff 2 smell perfume
'm lookin' 4 a Ph.D.
Ass piled high & deep, U C
can't help it
It's like a honey 2 a bee
If the booty boom, she gonna go with me
& then T. will whip out a 37-questionnaire
Machine gun a sister like he just don't care
Machine gun a sister like he just got 2... hit it!

Name?
"Arabia"
Age?
"Jailbait"
Occupation, if any?
"Sex symbol 2 many, but really got a beautiful mind"
Fine, fine
What sign U R?
"Stop sign"
Well, what's ur favorite car?
"Green Rolls-Royce"
How many kids U got?
"Egad! 'm shocked!"
How many books U read?
"Is Hemingway dead?"
Well, who's the President now?
"Does it matter? Wow"
Then how U gonna make that booty boom?
"How 'm gonna make that booty boom?"
say, how U gonna make that booty boom?
"How 'm gonna make that booty boom?
Step back, give a girl some room" (Oh!)
Dance girl! Let me C the booty boom! {repeat}

Yo, check this out
Would U hug me on a crowded street?
Could U keep ur cool if washed ur feet
& ur soul a bath?
What if gave it - ur body ask?
How long would U save it?
Could U lie down on a bed of thorns
While drink ur ocean dry?
& if we said we loved each other
Instead of smilin', would U cry?
Huh, could U kiss 3 times with ur dress upside
Downstroked & laughin'?
Or would U stay awake 4 14 hours
Listenin' 2 the grass grow?
ask thee...
Would U, could U, would U love me 2 the 9's?
"'ll love U 2 the 9's"
Would U, could U, will U love me 4 all time?
"'ll love U 4 all time"
Would U, could U, will U love me 2 the 9's?
"'ll love U 2 the 9's"

Love 2 the 9's
Love 4 all time
Wanna B loved, sugar (Love 2 the 9's)
Wanna B loved 4 all time
Ooh...
Yeah... oh yeah... love me 2 the 9's!
Ooh! (2 the 9's)
Wanna B loved 2 the 9's
Hey yeah (4 all time)
Wanna B loved 2 the 9's...
Hey yeah
