Would you be my girlfriend?

NELLY:

Uh, Ay, Ay
Uh, Would you be my girl?
Would you be my, (would you be my girlfriend?)
Uh, Ay
Would you be my, (would you be my girlfriend?)

Check it (3x)

He don't want you like I want you believe me boo I been told
He don't appreciate you, ma, I can tell by the way he hold you
He don't love you like I could love you
Or squeeze you like I squeeze
I'll make your neck pop back
and in fact I'll buckle your knees (please)
Ok, baby what's it gon' take for you
to be my lady (tell me right now)
I hear your friends sayin you should
Your parents tell you whats good
Your lil' sister keeps yellin', Nelly, I wish you would
But you're hesitatin', debatin' whether or not it's real
I ain't shootin game, boo, I'm just tellin you how I feel
I'm diggin' everything about you
Your hips an' the way the sway
I hate to see you leave boo, but love to see ya walk away
I'll be your personal shrink, boo, I care what you think
I bought the Bentley in pink 'cuz my dough *NSYNC
So tell ya man (bye bye) and tell 'em your long (gone)
Ain't no needin' waitin' up, he done found you another (home)

*NSYNC:
I don't know why you care (why you thinkin' bout him mamma?)
He doesn't even know you're there (he aint even payin' attention)
'Cause he don't love your eyes (no)
And he don't love your smile (no)
Girl you know that ain't fair (c'mon)

In the middle of the night
Is he gonna be by your side? (no no)
Or will he run and hide?
You don't know cause things ain't clear
And baby when you cry
Is he gonna stand by your side?
Does the man even know you're alive?
I got an idea

Why don't you be my girlfriend
I'll treat you good (I'll treat you good girl)
I know you hear your friends when they say you should
'Cause if you were my girlfriend
I'd be your shining star
The one to show you where you are
Girl you should be my girlfriend

Does he know what you feel (...he know what you feel)
Are you sure that it's real (are you sure?) yeah-eah-eah
Does he ease your mind (nah)
Or does he break your stride? (c'mon)
Did you know that love could be a shield yeah
In the middle of the night (hoooo)
Is he gonna be by your side? (no no - no)
Or will he run and hide?
You don't know cause things ain't clear
And baby when you cry (oooh)
Is he gonna stand by your side? (no no)
Does the man even know you're alive?
I got an idea (listen girl)

Won't you be my girlfriend (yeah yeah)
I'll treat you good (I'll treat you good girl)
I know you hear your friends when they say you should, baby
'Cause if you were my girlfriend (uh uh uh )
I'd be your shining star (I'd be that one to shine for ya, girl)
The one to show you where you are (*Check it, ah ah ah ah ah ah*)
Girl you should be my girlfriend

Nelly:
Ah, need a fiance, cute as Beyonce,
Ghetto like Da Brat
Ready to scrap when I say
The talents of Alicia, my fault Ms. Keys
I take the hips off Trina
the lips off Eve
I put ya so high on a pedestal, it might make ya nose bleed
So much ice around ya ankles, and watch ya toes freeze
Whats wrong, ma? Ya man ain't bringing ya joy?
Don't trip flip ya scrip to a country boy
Now c'mon

Ever since I saw your face
Nothing in my life has been the same
I walk around just saying your name
Without you my world would end, yeah
I've searched around this whole damn place
And everything says you were meant to be
My girlfriend... oh

Why don't you be my girlfriend (yeah)
I'll treat you good (uh)
I know you hear your friends when they say you should
(I know you hear your friends when they say you should)
'cause if you were my girlfriend (my girlfriend)
I'd be your shining star (be your shining star, yeahh)
The one to show you where you are

Girl you should be my girlfriend (you make my heart sing)
Ahh... *uh uh uh uh* (you make my heart sing)
Ahh... (you make my heart sing)
Ahh... *uh uh uh uh* (my baby, baby, yeah) (you make my heart sing)
Ahh... (girl you should be my girlfriend) *would you be my*
Girl you should be my girlfirend *would you be my girl*
Girl you should be my girlfriend *would you be my*
Girl you should be my girlfriend
