Fellas, things done got too far gone
We gotta let the girls know what they gotta do for us
It's than gotta be a drag, man, a man can't do nothin' no more
A-ha-ha-ha-ha

Is really a drag?
You gotta do somethin'
Can I count 'em?
Look me here

Girl, let me tell you what you got to do
Keepin' me so mellow, so nobody can get through
When he had to do your lovin', smilin' keeps us cheek
Walk away and twist your hip, make sure you keep him weak
Don't let nobody take care o' your business better than you do
Do what he wants, give what he wants, expect 'em come to you

And than you can hold your men, you can hold your men, you can hold your men
You can hold , hey

Never get so confident was nothin' you want to know
You caught up your time, you lose your thing, you think you got to go
You know what we got to tell 'em to take a plea until balls
Use your thing so carefully and don't be a total loss
Sister, when you loved your man, be careful, I ain't tellin' that
He will put you back on the corner, use you like it's in the hat

You can hold your men, you can hold your men, you can hold your men, you can
Hold, hey

Hit it
Good god, kill it
Hit me now
Good god

Never get too confident so it's nothin' you want to know
You caught up your time, you lose your thing, you think you got to blow
You know I got what it takes to take a plea until balls
You gotta use it carefully and it can't be a total

Hit me now
Good god, kill it
Yeah
Good god

Fellas
Can I get some help?
Can I get some help?
Look for me some help
Can I get a witness?
Shall I need a witness?
Shall I need a witness?
I, I, I, I need a witness
Can I get a witness?
I want a witness over there
Can I get a witness?
I want a witness over here
I'm a witness right here
I'm a witness over there
Is a witness over there?
I'm a witness right here
Wait a minute

Girl, let me tell you what you got to do
Keepin' me so mellow, nobody can get through
And when he had to do your lovin', smilin' keeps us cheek, good god
Walk away and twist your hip, make sure you keep him weak
And make sure you keep him weak, good god
Sure you keep him
