State of Emergency
Yeah, yeah
Yeah, yeah
Remember the time baby
Yeah, yeah

~ Timbaland ~
I ain't got no money
I ain't got no car to take you on a date
I can't even buy you flowers
But together we could be the perfect soulmates
Talk to me girl

~ Keri Hilson ~
Oh
Baby, it's alright now
You ain't gotta flaunt for me
If we go dutch
You can still touch my love, it's free
We can work without the perks just you and me
Thug it out til' we get it right

~ Chorus ~
Baby if you strip, you can get a tip
'Cause I like you just the way you are
I'm about to strip and I'm well equipped
Can you handle me the way I'm are?

I don't need the G's or the car keys
Boy I like you just the way you are
Let me see ya strip, you can get a tip
'Cause I like that I like that I like that...

~ Timbaland ~
I ain't got no VISA
I ain't got no Red American Express
We can't go nowhere exotic
It don't matter 'cause I'm the one that loves you best
Talk to me girl

~ Keri Hilson ~
Oh
Baby, it's alright now
You ain't gotta flaunt for me
If we go dutch
You can still touch my love, it's free
We can work without the perks just you and me
Thug it out til' we get it right

~ Chorus ~
Baby if you strip, you can get a tip
'Cause I like you just the way you are
I'm about to strip and I'm well equipped
Can you handle me the way I'm are?

I don't need the G's or the car keys
Boy I like you just the way you are
Let me see ya strip, you can get a tip
'Cause I like you just the wat you are

~ Rap Verse ~ D.O.E. ~
You know
Baby girl, I don't got a huge ol' house,
I rent a room in a house
Listen baby girl
I ain't got a motorboat,
But I can float your boat

So listen, baby girl
Once you get a dose of D.O.E
You gon' want some mo'
So listen, baby girl
When I'm naked I want you there,
Want you there, yeah.

Yeah my money and me loof like feel me them,
And it's realy not quite Louis Allason,
Your body ain't Pamela Anderson,
It's a struggle just to get you in the caravan,

But listen baby girl,
Before I let you lose a pound I'll buy a bigger car,
So listen baby girl,
I love you just the way you are, the way you are

~ Keri Hilson ~
Oh
Baby, it's alright now
You ain't gotta flaunt for me
If we go dutch
You can still touch my love, it's free
We can work without the perks just you and me
Thug it out til' we get it right

~ Chorus ~
Baby if you strip, you can get a tip
'Cause I like you just the way you are
I'm about to strip and I'm well equipped
Can you handle me the way I'm are?

I don't need the G's or the car keys
Boy I like you just the way you are
Let me see ya strip, you can get a tip
'Cause I like you just the wat you are

~ Chorus ~
Baby if you strip, you can get a tip
'Cause I like you just the way you are
I'm about to strip and I'm well equipped
Can you handle me the way I'm are?

I don't need the G's or the car keys
Boy I like you just the way you are
Let me see ya strip, you can get a tip
'Cause I like that I like that I like that...

    This song is talking about how even if you have no money, no nothing, you can still have love, and that's all that really matters...Timbaland is amazing, just like this song... ;-)

    This song represents what love should be...the material sh*t doesn't matter...no matter how others see the one you love, he/she is still the best looking in your eyes...it's the time together that matters!!!

    no matter if you are very poor and you dont have money or cars... you can still have a very special date even if you are just in home eating dinner and not in in restaurants... its just fine as long there is love...
