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

It's really a drag!
You got to do somethin'!
Can I tell 'em?
Let me on!

Girl, let me tell you what you got to do,
T. C. B. So mellow, 'til nobody can get through.
When he asks you do you love him, smilin' and kiss his cheek.
Walk away and twist your hip, make sure you keep him weak.
Don't let nobody take care your business better than you do,
Do what he wants, give what he wants, respect will come to you.

And than you can hold your man, you can hold your man, you can hold your man, you can hold... Hey!

Never get so confident so it's nothin' you want to know,
Because that's the time you lose your thing, and then you got to blow.
You know what we got...(indecipherable)
Use your thing so carefully and don't be a total loss.
Sister, when you love your man, be careful how you tell him that
He will put you back in a corner, and use you like a Sunday hat.

You can hold your man, you can hold your man, you can hold your man, you can
Hold... Hey!

Hit it!

Good God, get it!

Hit me now!

Good God!

Never get too confident so it's nothin' you want to know,
Because that's the time you lose your thing, then you got to blow.
You know I got what it takes to be the untold boss,
You gotta use it carefully and you can't be a total...

Hit me now!

Good God, Hit it!

Yeah!

Good god!

Fellas!
Can I get some help?
Can I get some help?
Let me have some help!
Can I get a witness?
Said I need a witness?
Said 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,
T. C. B. So mellow, and nobody can get through,
And when asks you do you love him, smile and kiss his cheek, good God,
Walk away and twist your hip, make sure you keep him weak.
Ah make sure you keep him weak, good God,
Sure you keep him...

Ain't it funky now? Good God!
Ain't it funky now? Hey!
Ain't it funky now?
Ain't it funky now?
Ain't it funky now?
Ain't it funky now?
Ain't it funky now?
One more! Ha!

Don't let nobody take care your business better than you do,
Do what he wants, give what he wants, respect will come to you.

Ain't it funky now?
Can I get some help?
Let me have some help!
Than clap your hands!
Then clap your hands!
Build it up a little higher!
Build it up a little higher!
A little bit higher now!
Build it up a little higher!
Ain't it funky now?

I gotta scream, now!
I gotta scream, now!
They wanna hold the man,
They need to hold the man,
They need to satisfy the man,
They need to hold the man,
They got to hold the man.
Ain't it funky now?
Good God, ain't it funky now?
Hey, yeah, yeah!
Can I get some help?
I gotta have some help!
I wanna get some help!
Wanna get some help!
I wanna, wanna, wanna, wanna, wanna, wanna, wanna, I wanna, I wanna, I wanna,
Yeah, now!
Good God!
Can I, can I, can I, can I, can I, can I, yeah!

Never get so confident, so it's nothin' you want to know,
Because that's the time you lose your thing, and then you got to blow.
You know you got what it takes to be the untold boss,
You gotta use it carefully, you can't be a total loss.

So girls, looky here!

Sister, when you tell your love your man, careful how you tell him that,
He'll take you for granted and use you for a Sunday hat.

Come on!

They'll do you wrong!
