Some people tell me got great legs
Can't figure out Y U make me beg
Does not compute, don't not compute
U think U'r special, well, so do
Y do special women make me cry?
Does not compute, it don't not compute

Must B something N the water they drink
It's been the same with every girl 've had
Must B something N the water they drink
Cuz Y else would a woman wanna treat a man so bad?

Some people think 'm kinda cute
But that don't compute when it comes 2 Y-O-U
Does not compute, somethin', mama, don't compute
What's the hang-up, what's the scam?
Guess U think 'm just another 1 of ur fans
Does not compute, somethin', honey, don't compute

Must B something N the water they drink
It's been the same with every girl 've had
Must B something N the water U drink
Cuz Y else would a woman wanna treat a man so bad?

've got 2 get 2 U, baby
Mmm, some people think 'm kinda smart
Y must a fella stop with U b4 he starts?
Does not compute, mama, somethin' don't compute
'd buy U clothing!
Buy U fancy cars
But U gotta talk 2 me, baby
Tell me who U really R

Must B something N the water they drink
It's been the same with every girl 've had
Must B something N the water U drink
Y else would a woman wanna treat a man so bad?
Yeah

Yeah-ooh! (Must B something N the water U drink)
Yeah! (Does not compute) {repeat}
(Must B something N the water U drink)
Bitch, haha, U think U'r special?
(Must B something N the water U drink)
Well, so do
(Must B something N the water U drink)
Y N God's name do U wanna make me cry?
Y, Y? (Must B something N the water U drink) (Ooh)

Anything
Y don't U talk 2 me? (Must B something N the water U drink)
Tell me who U R (Ooh)
Don't do this 2 me (Must B something N the water U drink) (Ooh)
Please don't do this (Must B something N the water U drink)
Must B something N the water U drink
Y, Y?

Or else wouldn't go thru all the things do
