Nelly Furtado – Maneater lyrics

[Timbaland:]
Take it back, take it back.......

Verse 1-
Everybody look at me, me
I walk in the door you start screaming
Come on everybody whatchu here for?
Move your body around like a nympho
Everybody get your necks to crack around
All you crazy people come on jump around
I want to see you all on your knees, knees
You either want to be with me, or be me

Chorus-
(come on)
Maneater, make you work hard
Make you spend hard
Make you want all, of her love
She's a maneater
Make you buy cars,
Make you cut cords,
Make you fall real hard in love
She's a maneater, make you work hard
Make you spend hard,
Make you want all, of her love
She's a maneater
Make you buy cars,
Make you cut cords,
Wish you never, ever met her at all

Verse 2-
And when she walks, she walks with passion
When she talks, she talks like she can handle it
When she asks for something boy she means it
Even if you never ever, ever see it
Everybody get your necks to crack around
All you crazy people come and jump around
You doing anything to keep her by your side
Because she says she'll love you, love you, long time

Chorus-
Maneater, make you work hard
Make you spend hard
Make you want all, of her love
She's a maneater
Make you buy cars,
Make you cut cords,
Make you fall in real hard in love
She's a maneater, make you work hard
Make you spend hard
Make you want all, of her love
She's a maneater
Make you buy cars,
Make you cut cords,
Wish you never ever met her at all

[Chants]

Chorus-
Maneater, make you work hard
Make you spend hard
Make you want all, of her love
She's a maneater
Make you buy cars,
Make you cut cords,
Make you fall in, fall in love
She's a maneater, make you work hard
Make you spend hard
Make you want all, of her love
She's a maneater
Make you buy cars,
Make you cut cords,
Wish you never ever met her at all

Outro-
You wish you never ever met her at all
You wish you never ever met her at all
You wish you never ever met her at all
You wish you never ever met her at all
You wish you never ever met her at all
You wish you never ever met her at all
You wish you never ever met her at all
You wish you never ever met her at all

Maneater, make you work hard
Make you spend hard
Make you want all, of her love
She's a maneater
Make you buy cars,
Make you cut cords,
Make you fall in, fall in love
She's a maneater, make you work hard
Make you spend hard
Make you want all, of her love
She's a maneater
Make you buy cars,
Make you cut cords,
Wish you never ever met her at all

She's a maneater, a maneater...
(You wish you never ever met her at all)
She's a maneater, a maneater...
(You wish you never ever met her at all)
...
