(Verse 1)
I was at the mall on some back to school
Tryna cop me a couple pairs of shoes
And then I looked to my left
And I lost my breath 'cause this girl was so fresh
Really wasn't tryna intrude
But she looked like the type I was into
And I wanted to holla but she was wit her mama
Felt like a catch 22
Okay how should I step to her, (how should I step to her)
Without any disrespect to her
But I thought she would like
If I kept it polite
So I stepped and this is what I said to her

(Chorus)
Excuse me mamma (hey)
Your daughters fine (your daughter's fine)
And If I could I'd like a moment of her time (a moment of her time)
While I was shopping I saw her walking by
So can I get her number and I'll give her mine?

(Verse 2)
Wishin I could catch her by herself
Waitin til she wasn't with nobody else
Now every time I saw her
I was tryin to call her
And she was busy checkin for the sales
Part of me was like just let it go
The other part of me was like let her know
But I will never get this chance
My life again gotta man up and tell her so

(Hook)
Okay how should I step to her, (how should I step to her)
Without any disrespect to her
But I thought she would like
If I kept it polite
So I stepped and this is what I said to her

(Chorus)
Excuse me mamma (hey)
Your daughters fine (so fine, so finee, so fine)
And If I could I'd like a moment of her time
While I was shopping and I saw her walking by
So can I get her number and I'll give her mine?

(Breakdown)
Baby don't u know that u
Got me all up in the wrong store
Now the malls bout to close
Crazy, but I followed you
'Cause I just couldn't take it no more
No disrespect to your mama but I need that
Number baby yeaa

(Chorus x2)
Excuse me mamma (hey)
Your daughters fine
And If I could I'd like a moment of her time
While I was shopping and I saw her walking by
So can I get her number and I'll give her mine?
Excuse me mamma (hey)
Your daughters fine (your daughter's fine)
And If I could I'd like a moment of her time
While I was shopping and I saw her walking by
So can I get her number and I'll give her mine?
