Isley Brothers – Contagious lyrics

Here's a story
About a man coming in
Finding his woman in bed with;
Well listen...

[Verse:]

It's 2 A. M. Just gettin in about to check my message,
No one has called but my homies and some bill collectors.
Cellular rings somebody wants to borrow money
I two-way her she don't hit me back something's funny.
So I called her mother's house and asked her has she seen my baby.
Drove my six around lookin for that missing lady.
Got back in turned the tv on and caught the news
Then I put my hand on my head cause I'm so confused.
And then I turned the tv down
Cause I thought I heard a squicky sound,
Something's going on upstairs
Cause I know nobody else lives here
"bump bump bump" as I get closer to the stairways all I hear
And then I hear my baby's voice in my ear screaming out....

[Chorus:]

You're contagious, touch me baby, give me what you got;
(then a man said) s*** lady drive me crazy, drive me wild;
(all I heard was my baby's voice)
You're contagious, touch me baby, give me what you got;
(then I heard another man)s*** lady, drive me crazy, drive me wild;
(And I just can't believe this shit) ...

[Verse 2:]

I ran downstairs looked in the closet lookin for that ooh,
Said a prayer cause only God knows what I'm gonna do
What I saw was enough to drive a Preacher wild
I'm in the hall contemplatin "not in my own damn house".
Who would have thought she was creepin with another man?
The down low happenin to me all over again
And then I turned the tv down
Cause I know I heard a squicky sound,
Something going on up there upstairs cause I know no one else lives here
"bump bump bump" as I get closer to the stairways all I hear,
And then I hear my baby's voice in my ear screaming....

[Repeat Chorus]

[Verse 3:]

What the hell is going on between the sheets in my home?
Baby wait let me explain before you start to point your cain.
Girl I'm bout to have a fit
"oh it's bout to be some shit!"
How did I get into this? Should have never came home with this bitch!
Low down dirty woman, back to where you come from
"but baby wait" but wait my ass
Hit the streets your ass is grass!
Now Mista Biggs before you jump
"Wait how you know my name son?"
"Honey wait I was gonna tell ya"
" Move this cat looks real familiar"
Hmmm?!?! Now don't I know you from somewhere a long time ago?
No, no I don't think so.
Yeah yea, I feel I know you brother very well.
No No you mistaken me for somebody else.
"Frank" "SHUT UP!" Can't you see two men are talkin?
"But" Thought I told your ass to get to walking!
Now I think ya'll better leave this place,
Cause I'm about to catch a case.

[Repeat Chorus to fade]
