Alright, cut
Fade 2 black
Now bring it up
& lemme kick the facts
& 'm gonna do U like U wanna... B done
Continental {repeat}

This is the continental
This is the main thing

can C U dancin' 4 a pack of wolves
can C them fighting 4 a chance 2 pull
But they ain't got a shot
Becuz the way 2 make U hot
Is 2 let U do ur own thing
Instead of tryin' 2 make U stop
Go on ahead, my dear, & dance
This is the new romance
Whatever U want 2 do
'll make it happen fast

am the continental
am the main thing
Whatever come 4 & after me is yin-yang
Y settle 4 a star when U can have the sun?
C'mon, lemme do U like U want 2 B done
Ow

Alright, cut
Dissolve 2 a purple floor
U & me starring N a movie called "More"
3 quarters N a glass
C U smile & ask
"If flip 'em on my stomach
Will U marry my ass?" (Whoo)

'd B like, "Yeah, man!"
Cuz want the main thing (Continental)
Whatever come 4 & after
That is yin-yang
Y settle 4 a star when U can have the sun?
C'mon, lemme do U like U want 2 B done
Ow

C'mon, lemme do ya like U wanna B done
C'mon, lemme show U how a boy & girl supposed 2 have fun
Hand 2 hand, 1 2 1
C'mon, lemme do ya... like ya, like U wanna B done
Yeah
Whoo (Con-con-continental)

wanna kiss U!
Baby, yeah, want ur lips
wanna kiss U like U know
Like U know wanna B kissed
All tongue, yeah
That's right, want all ur germs
can B hecka teacher if U wanna learn

Cuz am the continental
am the main thing
Whatever come 4 & after me is yin-yang
Y settle 4 a star when U can have the sun?
C'mon, lemme do ya like U wanna B done!
Con-con-continental

Baby, how U wanna, how U wanna B done?
Just say the word & we can start from #1
& go the distance, baby
Until U tell me stop
'd lose myself inside U till U get all got
Talk 2 me, baby (Ooh)
Tell me how U wanna B done
"Yeah" (Ooh)
How U wanna B done?

Shall go N a circle like the merry-go-round
That U & ur girlfriends used 2 ride all up & down?
Talk 2 me, baby
Tell me how U want 2 B done
How U wanna B done?

Shall write the alphabet? (A B C D E F G)
Or shall just write my name? (Ooh)
U tell me
U'r the ruler N this telephone game
could B a slave when it comes down 2 U
'll do any & everything U want me 2 do
U know Y? (Y?)
Cuz want U 2 have fun
So how U wanna B done?
Oh yeah, baby, yeah (How U wanna B done?)

Baby, how U wanna, how U wanna B done?
Just say the word & we can start from #1
& go the distance, baby
Until U tell me stop
'll lose myself inside U till U get all got
Talk 2 me, baby
Tell me how U wanna B done
Tell

want U 2 imagine U'r making angels
Angels N the snow
& kiss a hundred revolutions
Nice & slow (Y R U way over there?)
Then C U on the beat
Do a def striptease
No no, leave the Chanel around ur neck
Please, baby, please
Now do something 've never seen b4 (How U wanna... B done?)
Crawl over 2 me on ur stomach
More, baby, more
Now pull me down on top of U
& grind really fast (Tell me how U wanna B done)
Take both hands with all ur might
& squeeze my... yeah
Roll me over until U'r back on top
Then want U 2 kiss me until make U stop
That's how...
That's how wanna B done (Tell me how U wanna B done)
