(I wanna see you work for me, work out for me)

Hey, we got a good thing
Don't know if I'ma see you again
But is that a good thing?
Cause girl I can't be your man, no ma'am
I know what's on your brain
You're probably hoping never would end
Like is it the real thing
Or is it just a one night stand

Let me see you get high and go low
Now girl won't you drop that thing down to the floor
I'm here for one night, how far would you go?
I wanna see you work out for me, work out for me

High and go low
Now girl won't you drop that thing down to the floor
I'm here for one night, how far would you go?
I wanna see you work out for me, work out for me

[Verse 1]
She like them bar with the big old chains
Ride around town in the big old Range
I knew her when I riding big old chains
Now the little nigga doing big old things
Would you look at that, I came back for her
Just to give it to her, like you asked for it
Man that thing in them jeans too fat for her
It rebounds so I caught it off the backboard
I told her, baby girl come here
Know I run the town even when I aint from there
And I brag hardly but just to show up at this party I made
What your nigga make in one year, that's unfair but
So is life, take a chance roll a dice
Money can't buy you love cause it's over priced
Don't overthink just hope it's right
I'm only here for the night

Hey, we got a good thing
Don't know if I'mma see you again, see you again
But is that a good thing?
Cause girl I can't be your man, no ma'am
I know what's on your brain
You're probably hope it never would end
Like is it the real thing
Or is it just a one night stand
Well then

Let me see you get high and go low
Now girl would you drop that thing down to the floor
I'm here for one night, how far would you go?
I wanna see you work out for me, work out for me

High and go low
Now girl won't you drop that thing down to the floor
I'm here for one night, how far would you go?
I wanna see you work out for me, work out for me

[J Cole - Verse 2]
Carolina blue kicks, fresh on the scene
Hottest nigga on the block, damn girl you mean
They be starting shit, but it's your world
On my Martin shit, you go girl
She bad and you know it, some niggas save Hoes
I'm not that heroic
Could you be my escort
Cause just like them two door Fords
Damn, they don't make 'em like you no more
Cole World, real Cole World
Them boys cool, me I'm on fire
Know what's on my mind, tryna see what's on yours tonight
Tonight, tonight
Move slow, cause you wanna live fast
Up late so you probably skip class
Life is a test so before the night pass get right
Get right

We got a good thing
Don't know if I'mma see you again, see you again
But is that a good thing?
Cause girl I can't be your man, no mam
I know what's on your brain
You're probably hoping it never would end
Like is it the real thing or is just a one night stand

(Cole World)

Straight up downtown but do you really wanna love me forever
Oh, oh, oh
Or is it just a hit and run

(Well hey)

Straight up I tell ya I just really wanna cut when we together
Oh, oh, oh
Come here girl, lets get it on

(Work out for me, work out for me)

Straight up I tell ya I just really wanna love me forever
Oh, oh, oh
Or is it just a hit and run

Well, Straight up I tell ya I just really wanna cut when were together
Oh, oh, oh
Come here girl lets get it on

(Work out for me, work out for me)

    I think paula abdul has the better version because this song is titled "work out" by j. Cole which was sampled from "straight up"

    Only problem is... A lot of swear words.
