lyrics

hook

i like the way you look and how you talk
(who you are)
i like the way you think and how you walk
(who you are)
i like the way you look and how you talk
(who you are)
i like the way you be


verse

she stood about 5 feet short inches at a usual height
hair long and in twists with a beautiful light
tried to speak but when i utter something didn’t sound right
like my vocal cord extension took a holiday flight
cleared my throat played it off like everything was alright
though she looked at me like i was interrupting her sight
tried to lean against the wall and felt clumsily slight
what am i doing
why do i act like a pitiful mess
maybe i shouldn’t have took a look at her black and white cat dress
when she smiled
it gave me another chance to refresh
i said yo my name is (ahem) as you probably would guess
but she laughed aloud and chuckled cause i’m probably to fresh
staring me up and down with a look of what's next
little does she know this is how i usually flex
the best of the best
the rest are a typical mess
know she’s heard it all before and not easily vexed
but i’m more than the new breed with speech that infects
worked her brain over starting at the core complex
responsive to the opulent stimulace of my competence
further cementing my role, as her occupant
we two as people
share space to be equal
great minds combine to make life less deceitful
so here we are
at the beginning again
hoping when we reach the end will be better than friends
