After a month of just bein' alone
He said, " wonder what L.A.'s thinkin'"
Streets he roamed N search of a poem
Amongst the wild & drinkin'
When he sees cool dark skin N hot virgin white
The search was over
At least 4 2night
When she co-signed & told him she was...

Shy
Cool dark skin N hot virgin white
Shy
Lips say won't but her body say might
Shy
Looks like we're gonna take the long way home 2night
Oh baby
Shy

After a look much louder than words
She said, " passed my initiation
A friend of mine
He got killed & N retaliation
shot the boy (Pop! Pop!)
Huh, twice N the head, mm
No regrets, no sorrow
'm goin' back 2morrow 2 make sure he's dead
Cuz if don't, they'll call me a chicken
But U can call me..."

Shy
With cool dark skin N hot virgin white
Shy
Lips say won't but her body say might
Shy
Looks like we're gonna take the long way home 2night


Shy...
Lips say no but the body say might
Looks like we're gonna take the long way home {repeat}
Looks like we're gonna take the long way home 2night

The girl was rough
But he called her bluff
& he told her not 2 know was better
Fact or fiction he wondered
& that's when the rain & thunder
Got wetter
& at the top of the page he wrote...

Shy
Cool dark skin N hot virgin white
Shy
Looks like we're gonna take the long way home 2night (Ooh)

Oh, say it now, baby (Shy)
Cool dark skin N hot virgin white
Shy
Lips say won't but her body say might
Shy
Looks like we're gonna take the long way home 2night
Oh baby, don't U wanna B alone 2night? (Shy)
Yeah (Oh yes)
Ooh
Shy...
Looks like we're gonna take the long way home 2night
