I love you and I need you
Nelly, I love you, I do need you

No matter what I do
All I think about is you
Even when I'm with my boo
Boy, you know I'm crazy over you

No matter what I do
All I think about is you
Even when I'm with my boo
You know I'm crazy over you

I met this chick and she just moved right up the block from me
And she got the hots for me, the finest thing my hood did see
But oh, no, no, she got a man and a son, d'oh-oh, but that's okay
'Cause I wait for my cue and just listen, play my position
Like a shortstop, pick up everything mami hittin'

And in no time, I better make this friend mine and that's for sure
'Cause I, I never been the type to break up a happy home
But there's something 'bout baby girl, I just can't leave her 'lone

So tell me, ma, what's it gonna be?
She said, "You don't know what you mean to me," come on

No matter what I do
All I think about is you
Even when I'm with my boo
Boy, you know I'm crazy over you

No matter what I do
All I think about is you
Even when I'm with my boo
You know I'm crazy over you

I see a lot in your look and I never say a word
I know how niggas start actin' trippin' out here about they girls
And there's no way Nelly gon' fight over no dame, as you could see

But I, I like your steeze, your style, your whole demeanor
The way you come through and holler, and swoop me in his two-seater
Now that's gangsta and I got special ways to thank ya
Don't you forget it

But it ain't that easy for you to pack up and leave him
But you and dirty got ties for different reasons
I respect that and right before I turned to leave
She said, "You don't know what you mean to me," come on

No matter what I do
All I think about is you
Even when I'm with my boo
Boy, you know I'm crazy over you

No matter what I do
All I think about is you
Even when I'm with my boo
You know I'm crazy over you

And I love you and I need you
Nelly, I love you, I do

And it's more than you'll ever know
Boy, it's for sure
You can always count on my love
Forever more, yeah, yeah

East Coast, I know you're shakin' right
Down South, I know you're bouncin' right
West Coast, I know you're walkin' right
('Cause you don't know what you mean to me)
Midwest, I see you swingin' right

No matter what I do
All I think about is you
Even when I'm with my boo
Boy, you know I'm crazy over you

No matter what I do
All I think about is you
Even when I'm with my boo
You know I'm crazy over you

East Coast, I know you're shakin' right
Down South, I know you're bouncin' right
West Coast, I know you're walkin' right
(You don't know what you mean to me)
Midwest, I see you swingin' right

East Coast, you're still shakin' right
Down South, I see you're bouncin' right
West Coast, I know you're walkin' right
('Cause you don't know what you mean to me)
Midwest, you're still swingin' right

No matter what I do
All I think about is you
Even when I'm with my boo
Boy, you know I'm crazy over you

No matter what I do
All I think about is you
Even when I'm with my boo
You know I'm crazy over you

East Coast, I know you're shakin' right
Down South, I know you're bouncin' right
West Coast, I know you're walkin' right
(You don't know what you mean to me)
Midwest, I see you swingin' right

East Coast, you're still shakin' right
Down South, I see you're bouncin' right
West Coast, I know you're walkin' right
(You don't know what you mean to me)
Midwest, you're still swingin' right

    The meaning of this song, is being in love and people who can't live without each other. Being in love is a hard thing. But you'll know when you're in love.

    Love this song! It reminds me of me nd my ex b/c after we broke up we found out tht we were both kind of cheating on each other but even after we broke up we flirt everyday and i guess we r friends with benefits. Lolz. But ya all my friends r saying tht we r so confusing but i tell them we just have a confusing relationship like nelly & kelly in the music video for this song. & i realized tht after watching the music video a few days after we broke up i was on a date with this other guy at the movies he was getting the popcorn nd i was heading to r seats & i tripped & this other boy caught me & sure enough it was my ex on a date with another girl. It was a really awkward moment until the boy i was on a date with jus took my hand & walked me into the theatre. I looked back @ my ex & the girl sure enough she was checking my date out nd my ex caught her doing i jus smiled & turned away. Lols. =d

    @jeremysgrl134: No one cares about your love life, if you want to brag about your love life take you braggy butt to facebook or myspace. This is a friggin lyric site not a brag about my "honey bear" site. Go get a effin life other than bragging about your damn love life to people that could care less.
