(Feat. Andre 3000)

Give me the Green light
Give me just one night
I'm ready to go right now
I'm ready to go right now

I'm ready to go right now
I'm ready to go right now

I see you move, I'm checking your smile
Working your back like it's going out of style
Shake just a little bit faster
Shake just a little now girl
Dying to meet you, so lets mess around
I've got an obsession of us getting down
Come just a little bit closer
I just need permission so just...

Give me the green light
Give me just one night
I'm ready to go right now
I'm ready to go right now
We can go all night
Give me the green light
I'm ready to go right now
I'm ready to go right now

123 green light
But if it's what it seems like
The way you movin baby let's get movin its gon be right

I'm ready to go right now
I'm ready to go right now

(Andre 3000)
123 red light
I wanna see yo bed's like
But if I be your buddy
Would you stidy?
Is yo head right?

(John Legend)
I'm ready to go right now
I'm ready to go right now

Do I have a girlfriend... technically no.
If you'll be my girlfriend then I'll make it so
You'll be my only true lover
No competition, no other
Baby it's just the thrill of the chase
But I've got a feeling that I'm winning this race!
Baby I'm in much closer
I just need permission so...

(John Legend)
Give me the green light...
Give me just one night.
I'm ready to go right now!
I'm ready to go right now

We can go all night
Give me the green light
I'm ready to go right now
I'm ready to go right now

(Andre 3000)
123 green light
But if it's what it seems like
The way you movin baby lets get movin its gon be right

(John Legend)
I'm ready to go right now
I'm ready to go right now

(Andre 3000)
123 red light
I wanna see what yo bed's like
But if I be your buddy
Would you study?
Is yo head right?

(John Legend)
I'm ready to go right now
I'm ready to go right now

(Andre 3000)
So I went hard like Medusa staring at me
I told her lets go, lets blow this lame nigga factory
She said, What type of girl do you think I are
The kind that you meet in a bar
You think you can get whatever you want cuz you some kinda star
No I'm a comet
I just want you woman
Hey, If I were you it wouldn't be me that Id go home with
3, the one and only
One thing you ain't considered
I heard you when you told your girl "ooo he can get it"
Admit it
You did it
Lets hop a cab and split it
I'm kiddin
We both going to where you livin
HA, I got you gigglin like I'm piglet
Oh that's the ticket
I hope you more like anita baker than robin givens
No, I don't know that lady so let me quit it
I'm just style freein, freestylin which i seldom do
This is what im telling you
To the bed im nailing you
Like I've been in jail for two
Years and then they let me loose

Chorus

(Andre 3000)

You got you one legend
Sometimes you gotta step from behind the piano
And let em know what's going on
Even Stevie Wonder got down sometimes
I'm ready to go

    Power 96 has expletives in it, i wouldn't listen to that station. There is one song that i know that does not use bad language. It is called someone like you by adele. Party rock anthem, dynamite, give me everything and lighters are all good songs. Love the way you lie. I would not sing expletives at school or in public. I'd be held in detention.

    I love john legend, his voice is amazing and i also like his piano style, except for andre 3000, because it has the n-word mentioned in the song and i said it to one of my teachers on a thursday morning. So i had to serve lunch detention on friday.

    I love John Legend! I think this song is talking about how when you have a green light, go go go!
