Verse I
I knew just what I had to be
When I heard you say what you said to me
To every dude in sight
Look like you working up an appetite for the night, check it

By then I just sat at the back
Peeping you out, the way you act
Getting out of line
And I make you get back in your place

All is well and all is cool
Stay in your place, don't be no fool
We'll Get along alright
You look like the type that would try to fight
Your best off Being a friend to me, you don't want offend me
Better play it cool
Don't know what I might do
Chorus
Cornbread, fish, and collard greens
I got what you need
If you want it (cause I'm pimp, girl)
If you want it (I'm a pimp, girl)
Cornbread, fish, and collard greens
I got what you need (what you need)
If you want it (I can rock your world)
If you want it (I put the juice in jheri curl)

Verse II
Now tell me do you really think
You can walk around like your shit don't stink
I'm on to you
Oh baby girl, I'm on to you (I'm watching you)
Take it slow, change your speed
If it's food for thought that you really need
Better stake your claim, get with it
Stay in your lane, stop swerving

Take a seat, sit in the back
I don't appreciate the way you act
You need to fix yourself, hurry up and go fix yourself
Can't do nothing, won't nothin' fly
Everything's gonna pass you by
Better wisen up (wisen up)
Stop trippin' on love

Chorus
Cornbread, fish, and collard greens
I got what you need
If you want it (cause I'm pimp, girl) if you want
I can rock your world
I put the juice in jheri curl

Chorus
Cornbread, fish, and collard greens
I got what you need
If you want it (cause I'm pimp, girl) if you want
I can rock you your world
I put the juice in jheri curl

If you let me take you there

Chorus
Repeat
