[Listen all you fellas here's what good love is]

[Listen all you fellas the kind she understands]

[Listen all you fellas then you won't have to worry no no more]

[Listen all you fellas you betta listen] [you betta listen]

[Listen all you fellas here's what good love is]

[Listen all you fellas the kind she understands]

[Listen all you fellas then you won't have to worry no no more]

[Listen all you fellas, you betta listen] [you betta listen]

Mummy I saw one day

She was on some fume vapors

Givin' me lip so I continued with the caper

Cat litter had me sniffin

Since outside the palace

Eyes sicker than aids

Game harder than a callous

Tried to enter in her shit

She had locks on the session

Tellin me how her last man

Taught her ass a lesson damn

Well, i'm not the mayor

I take care of my dimes

But I excluded I had nickels

Addin' up to her kind

Short stacks with a wristful of jewels

Sayin she didn't need a man

To make her out for a fool

Dig it, miss, my love is credited in cupid account

And if you need that extra help

Gigglin, figurin' I had jokes for her humor

Then she broke out with the words

About knowin all the rumors

"See, all you niggas rappin be like pedigree dogs

Thinkin you can have me leashed

Around your microphone cords"

Somethin 'bout her lit me up like july

And with them onions in the pants

I couldn't help but cry

Seemed lost in the essence

But i had to find my way to take

Action for the digits just to set up a date

Thought my shinin was on

I had the skirts in the bag

Until i took a bit of time

To peep the price on the tag

She said "I'm that salt and pepa

Who like pushin it to sisters

You need to get to walkin with it mister,

I think you betta listen"

[Listen all you fellas, here's what good love is]

[Listen all you fellas, the kind she understands]

[Listen all you fellas, then you won't have to worry no no more]

[Listen all you fellas, you betta listen] [you betta listen]

We was at some outside jam one saturday night

When this pretty ass girl got locked in my sight

She was a ghetto philosopher

Yeah you know the type

Thinkin' Mary J. and sade understood her strife

Caught me lookin', "Yo what's cookin?"

"Nothin' from around here

So don't approach or hope

To be the man of the year"

I said listen deer or rabbit or whatever the hell you be

I'm not the one to embarrass

But the one to emcee

I traveled the world q uarters on my relationships

Used and abused by hoes

So my royalty stubs

But above all

I brought my daughter into this earth

So I understand the need

Of women feeling of worth

She glanced deep in my eyes

And said "oh shit, you're ill

I like the way your mind

Moves around at will

Still, let me apologize for soundin so sassy

But you niggas act as if my ass

Has a sign that says harass me"

Her name was gail from the union of dale

I made her remove the shades

So her eyes could tell me the plan

Yo where's your man?

"Oh that nigga's past tense,

Painted bruises on my face

Haven't seen him ever since"

Gave a pinch to my bottom

And started rubbing my back

She said "i bet your ass is darker

Than a mobb deep track"

Only one way to know it,

And i was down to show it

So we jetted back to my crib to set it

She made it known

"I've owned thoughts of you

Since that song 'meeny-meeny'

Can't believe you're about

To be all up in between me"

Man, the flag was lowered

So my wood was raised

Followed a shielding of my building

To protect me from the blaze

This granted access to

Southern parts of her borders

Did you have her comin'?

Like the new world order

I caught her with the right combination

A good combination

Keepin' it in her hard, man

You betta listen

[Listen all you fellas, here's what good love is]

[Listen all you fellas, the kind she understands]

[Listen all you fellas, then you won't have to worry no no more]

[Listen all you fellas, you betta listen] [you betta listen]
