D- d- d-j put me that 808 on ya drum (on ya drum)
It's your man... Qwote
Gotta get my baby back (j.r.)
Baby if you're listenin, it's from me

Calling my request in for about the hundredth time
DJ, Mr. DJ tryin to get you on the line
Girl you heard this word before so I don't mean to keep ya
But I never felt like this, that's how I know my girl's a keepa
Baby I made you so mad, said things I can't take em back (Oh oh oh)
I know I messed up so bad, tell her I'm feeling so sad
Please could you help me with that (Oh! )

DJ drop me a beat and put that 808 on it
I'm sending a message to my baby
Said she's finished with me, but she gotta know I'm hurtin
And I think that she listens to this sta-sta-tion
I gotta get her back on this track so please,
Would you put that 808, put that 808 on it
Take her back to the days when we was falling in love
DJ put me that 808 on ya drum (on ya drum)

Heard her shoes walk out the door, it was just about 8:08
She told me she was up and done and I shoulda made her stay
I just let her go, grab that remote turn on the Steelers
She jumped in the A26 to the 95 and now I'll never see her
You know I can't take that back, I know I messed up so bad
So I need to special this track

DJ drop me a beat and put that 808 on it
I'm sending a message to my baby
Said she's finished with me, but she gotta know I'm hurtin
And I think that she listens to this sta-sta-tion
Gotta get her back on this track so please
Would you put that 808, put that 808 on it
Take her back to the days when we was falling in love
DJ put me that 808 on ya drum

(Plies)
Plies
I know for hurtin you baby, God gon' punish me
I shouldn't of played with your heart cause you were too sweet
I wasn't ready to settle down, I was too street
I was a sexaholic, I was too weak
All the promises I made you, I couldn't keep
I was too whorish for you, you deserve better then me
Get married, and raise a family, how it's supposed to be
But getting money, chasing women got the best of me

The first time that I saw her, I can't forget those songs
Thought I could live without her, now she's just all I want
I missed the way she kissed me, think about it everyday
Everytime I turn on the radio and hear that turn away

And put that 808 on it
I'm sending a message to my baby
Said she's finished with me but she gotta know I'm hurtin
And I think that she listens to this sta-sta-tion
Gotta get her back on this track so please
Would you put that 808, put that 808 on it
Take her back to the days when we was falling in love
DJ put me that 808 on ya drum (on ya drum)
