VERSE 1 -

Nas:
Yea, yea, yea, yea... /
Uh, yo /
Ladies love what I've been through /
Blood on my Timb boots /
Snub noses / club closes down when my mens shoot /
But she can't stand I'm sharing everything with the fam /
That means them too / Flat screen / Benz coupe /
Plus I entertain bosses /
At my Spanish-style, Lagafell furnished up fortress /
But look at miss thing / in Alexander McQueen /
Jizette Bizatti / the sexiest body /
And I / bet you see properly /
Heard how I love ‘em and leave ‘em /
But she still wanna suck him and eat him /
‘Cause I'm a poet, a preacher, and a pimp with words /
A thief who stole her heart / a prince she deserves /

Kelis:
I should have know by the way that you stare /
Eyeing passes by like your rich but life ain't fair /
But ya / make my record skip / make my record skip /
Make my record skip / make my record skip /

HOOK -

Kelis (Nas):
I woulda never talked to you if I'da known you was a popular thug /
Hey, popular thug (your damn right) /
I woulda never talked to you if I'da known you was a popular thug /
Hey, popular thug (your damn right) /

VERSE 2 -

Nas:
I take / I don't ask for nothing /
You fake / I look past your frontin' / for cash I'm a glutton /
I'm a bad influence yo / have your marriage ruined /
By hanging with me you get ass from some new chicks /
My life's influent / cash and music /
Honeys I hit hear my song / they get mad and lose it /
‘Cause I'm a sex crazed bastard /
I hit Kelis with a cushion cut engagement ring / We done / that's it /

Kelis:
I should have seen in the way you touched my hand /
Shuffling your car keys / it sounded like a gentleman /
But ya / make my record skip / make my record skip /
Make my record skip / make my record skip /

HOOK -

Kelis (Nas):
I woulda never talked to you if I'da known you was a popular thug /
Hey, popular thug (your damn right) /
I woulda never talked to you if I'da known you was a popular thug /
Hey, popular thug (your damn right) /
I woulda never talked to you if I'da known you was a popular thug /
Hey, popular thug (your damn right) /
I woulda never talked to you if I'da known you was a popular thug (yea, yea, yea, you know)/
Hey, popular thug (your damn right) /

VERSE 3 –

Nas:
I don't mean mug or ice grill / ‘Cause I don't have to /
My eyebrow shaped like a half moon and I don't raise em /
The kid you can't budge him or faze him /
My money's amazing / Honey, Black, Puerto Rican, and Asian /
What a mean look / me and you / the king is hooked /
Got you the Cayenne green Porsche to push /
They off the hook /
Giving haters nightmares walking /
You smothered by a popular gangsta / perfect boyfriend

Kelis:
I should have heard it in the way you said my name /
While I analyze your tone you were formulating game /
But ya / make my record skip / make my record skip /
Make my record skip / make my record skip

HOOK -

Kelis (Nas):
I woulda never talked to you if I'da known you was a popular thug /
Hey, popular thug (your damn right) /
I woulda never talked to you if I'da known you was a popular thug /
Hey, popular thug (your damn right) /
I woulda never talked to you if I'da known you was a popular thug /
Hey, popular thug (your damn right) /
Hey, popular thug (your damn right) /
