Give it to mama
Give it give it
Give it to mama mama (oh)
Give it
Give it to mama mama

For some strange reason (huh)
You done pleasing me like it's OK (Oh oh ooooh)
Like a perm that's been left too long
It's like a burn
The result is it just won't take (Oh oh ooooh)
I can see
Now it's all coming so clear to me now
I can see
Misinterpreted all of my naiveness
Was just thinking if I had no you
Than I can't do
My stock just went up over 2 million

So if you want to (uh uh huh uh uh)
You got the green light (uh uh huh uh uh)
So if you want to (uh uh huh uh uh)
You got the green light (uh uh huh uh uh)
So if you want to (want to, want to) (uh uh huh uh uh)
You got the green light (uh uh huh uh uh)
So if you want to (uh uh huh uh uh)
You got the green light (uh uh huh uh uh)
Give it to mama

Go go go goooo
Go go go goooo
Go go go goooo
Go go RED LIGHT (ah) GREEN LIGHT!

Some sillies say I should be trophied
Cause it gets no stronger (Oh oh ooooh)
Ladies ya'll know (yea girl ya'll know)
This pimp ish gets no older
Is that a threat (what's another threat)
Yep! (that's another threat)
From you, you can get no colder
You got the green light (whoa)
YOU THE KING RIGHT? (whoa)
You holding up traffic
Green means go!

Go go go goooo
Go go go goooo
Go go go goooo
Go go RED LIGHT (I said you're holding up traffic green means go! ) GREEN LIGHT!

So if you want to (uh uh huh uh uh)
You got the green light (you got the green light babe! ) (uh uh huh uh uh)
So if you want to (go! ) (uh uh huh uh uh)
You got the green light (ooh! ) (uh uh huh uh uh)
So if you want to (want to, want to) (uh uh huh uh uh)
You got the green light (uh uh huh uh uh)
So if you want to (uh uh huh uh uh)
You got the green light (uh uh huh uh uh)
Give it to mama

[Sung over go's]
Oh no problem you can go

So why not move along
You want a green light... so you can... GO! (go, go, go)

Go go go goooo
Go go go goooo
Go go go goooo
Go go RED LIGHT (ah) GREEN LIGHT!

I gave all I could give
My love, my heart (my heart)
Now we're facing the end (the end) of what you did from the start
My love

[Instrument Solo]
(You're holding up traffic, GREEN MEANS GO! )

So if you want to (WHOA oh oh! ) (uh uh huh uh uh)
