Every time I look up, I see it in your face
You wanna hook up wit me
(You know, you wanna hook up, stop playin')
Instead of acting like you supposed to
You cop an attitude like you're too good for me
(We know that ain't right)
And you know good and damn well that

If I wanted, I could take you from ya man
With my eyes closed
I could have you eatin' out the palm of my hand
And all your little girlfriends too
(No you can't, get with me but I want you)
Yes, I can and I will if I, if I want to, if I, if I want to, baby

Ain't nobody trying clown you
But you too damn old to play high school games with me
(You know that man too damn old)
Yes, you do 'cause even when I'm not around you
I be hearin' from my friends, you be askin' 'bout me
("What's up with him?", that's what you be sayin')

I don't really care
How long you been together with your man
It's just a matter of time before I make you mine
I wanna make it clear so there's no misunderstanding
That I get, what I want, when I want
(Is that a fact)

If I wanted, I could take you from ya man
With my eyes closed
I could have you eatin' out the palm of my hand
And all your little girlfriends too
(No you can't, get with me but I want you)
Yes, I can and I will if I, if I want to, if I, if I want to, baby

If I wanted, I could take you from ya man
With my eyes closed
I could have you eatin' out the palm of my hand
And all your little girlfriends too
(No you can't, get with me but I want you)
Yes, I can and I will if I, if I want to, if I, if I want to, baby

(Look out, yeah, oh U.S.)
That I get, what I want, when I want

You know how it go, gurl
If I wanted to, I could have you doin' whatever I want you to
You know but right now, I'm just not really doin' that
But if I wanted to, anything I'm sayin'
You and your girls, I could have them too, it's crazy, listen

If I wanted, I could take you from ya man
With my eyes closed
I could have you eatin' out the palm of my hand
And all your little girlfriends too
(No you can't, get with me but I want you)
Yes, I can and I will if I, if I want to, if I, if I want to, baby
