Jamelia – Know My Name lyrics

It was the hottest day in summer of the London town
I was dressed to impress, you know how I gets down
Every guy that I passed looked at my ass like, "Whoa"
And this one in particular couldn't hold it down, he said

“Hi, do you wanna go for a ride?
I got it all, I'll give it to you, I'll give it to you”
I said, “You're promising the world
Thinking better make me your girl
But if promises are comfort to a bull
And you don't know my name”

Is it some guys are idiots?
Think their dumb lines are getting me
Ladies if you're with me, let 'em know
They gotta up their game

You better brush up your etiquette
A girl like me, you'll never get
Think you're gonna win it but you wont
Don't even know my name

Now me and my girls are ringing at the hottest bar
And their ain't no doubt, it going on is what we got
Now this boy slides over here like he's on roller skates
Puts his lips to my ear, one hand around my waist, he says

“Girl, I wanna make you my world
And all I have, I give it to you, I give it to you
And I say, “Baby boy, you failed
Tonight you made no sale
'Cause my promises are comfort to a bull
And you don't know my name

Is it some guys are idiots?
Think their dumb lines are getting me
Ladies if you're with me, let 'em know
They gotta up their game

You better brush up your etiquette
A girl like me, you'll never get
Think you're gonna win it but you wont
Don't even know my name

Don't wanna be too hard on you fellas, fellas, fellas
I just wanna teach you a lesson
Don't need to know what you're sittin' on, no I don't need to
All you gotta do is get to know my name

Is it some guys are idiots?
Think their dumb lines are getting me
Ladies if you're with me, let 'em know
They gotta up their game

You better brush up your etiquette
A girl like me, you'll never get
Think you're gonna win it but you wont
Don't even know my name

Is it some guys are idiots?
Think their dumb lines are getting me
Ladies if you're with me, let 'em know
They gotta up their game

You better brush up your etiquette
A girl like me, you'll never get
Think you're gonna win it but you wont
Don't even know my name

Ladies if you're with me, let 'em know
They gotta up their game

You better brush up your etiquette
A girl like me, you'll never get
Think you're gonna win it but you wont
Don't even know my name
