I just wanna...
Show you how much I appreciate you
Wanna show you how much I'm dedicated to you
Wanna show you how much I will forever be true
Wanna show you how much you got your girl feelin' good
Wanna show you how much, how much you're understood
Wanna show you how much, I value what you say
Not only are you loyal, you're patient with me bay
Wanna show you how much, I really care about yo heart
I wanna show ya how much, I hate being apart
Show ya, show ya, show ya til you're through with me
I wanna keep it how it is, so you can never say how it used to be

(Bridge)
Loving you is really all that's on my mind
And I can't help but to think about it day and night
I wanna make that body rock, sit back and watch

(Chorus)
Tonight I'm gonna dance for you (ohh ooh ohh ohhh)
Tonight I'm gonna dance for you (ohh ooh ohh ohhh)
Tonight I'm gonna put my body on your body
Boy I like it when you watch me, ah
Tonight it's going down
I'll be rockin' on my babe rockin', rockin' on my babe
Swirlin' my babe Twirlin', swirlin' on my babe
Baby lemme put my body on your body
Promise not to tell nobody cuz
It's bout to go down

You'll never need 2, cuz I will be your number 1
Them other chicks are superficial
But I know you know I'm the one
That's why I'm all into you
Cuz I can recognize that you know that
That's why I'm backin' this thing back
Pop, poppin' this thing back
Drop-drop-drop-dropping this thing back
This is for the time, you gave me flowers
For the world, that is ours
For the mulah, for the power of love
I know I won't never ever eh-ever give you up
And I wanna say thank you in case I don't thank you enough
A woman in the street and the freak in the you know what
Sit back sit back it's the pre game show
Daddy you know what's up

(Bridge)
Loving you is really all that's on my mind
And I can't help but to think about it day and night
I wanna make that body rock, sit back and watch

(Chorus)
Tonight I'm gonna dance for you (ohh ooh ohh ohhh)
Tonight I'm gonna dance for you (ohh ooh ohh ohhh)
Tonight I'm gonna put my body on your body
Boy I like it when you watch me, ah
Tonight it's going down
I'll be rockin' on my babe rockin', rockin' on my babe
Swirlin' my babe swirlin', swirlin' on you babe
Baby lemme put my body on your body
Promise not to tell nobody cuz
It's bout to go down

Imma take this time
To show you how much you mean to me
Cuz you all I need
No money can emphasize or describe
The love that's in between the lines
Boy look into my eyes
While I'm grinding on you
This is beyond sex
I'm high on you
If it's real then you know how I feel
Rockin on you babe
Rockin rockin on you babe
Swirlin on you babe
In my mind all I can think about
Is a frame for our futures
And the pictures of the past
And a chance to make this love last

(Chorus)
Tonight I'm gonna dance for you (ohh ooh ohh ohhh)
Tonight I'm gonna dance for you (ohh ooh ohh ohhh)
Tonight I'm gonna put my body on your body
Boy I like it when you watch me, ah
Tonight it's going down
I'll be rockin' on my babe rockin', rockin' on my babe
I be swirlin' my babe swirlin', swirlin' on you babe
Baby lemme put my body on your body
Promise not to tell nobody cuz
It's bout to go down

Watch me pop it, pop it, pop-pop-pop-pop it for you baby
Drop it, drop it, drop it, drop it for you baby
Watch it, watch it, watch it, watch me throw it baby
Wanna make that body rock, sit back and watch

Watch me pop it, pop it, pop-pop-pop-pop it for you baby
Drop it, drop it, drop it, drop it for you baby
Watch it, watch it, watch it, watch me throw it baby
Wanna make that body rock, sit back and watch

    It's about giving yourself fully, being yourself - loosing control on that one person you love deeply, for the one your ment for. I love music, I love dancing because through my dancing I'm able to express my emotions. The lyrics and the beat to this song makes this very seductive, mysterious, and classy for a lady to show that one he is her everything. I only wish I can have the opportunity to dance for the one I love and give it my every breathe and passion. O 143 4 life and after.

    To me this song means giving your man your undivided attention, amking sure he's pleased at home so when he's out he anxious to get back home to instead of having another chick to satify his needs. She's willing to cater to her man. She's also putting everything on the table for him to know that she loves him and with him is whee she wants to be.

    Sounds like she is proving her love to the man in her life. She wants to be found pleasing to him and so she performs and does all that she is doing for him. Her performances or especially for him. He is her muse and his enjoyment is her only pleasure.

    The meaning of this song to me is wanting to show someone how much you love them and how comfortable they make you feel around them to be able to dance in front in them. Showing them how much you appreciate them and they do not have to go out to get the same show that they got at home.
