Lyrics
You told me today that you quit your girlfriend



I'd be the next one to ease on in



You promised me it would be just us two



I'd be the only girl kissin' on you



Now you got a girl but you still want me



Remember nothing in life is free



If you want your cake and eat it too



Come here boy let me show you what to do







Why don't you just kiss me



Hold it a long time



Hold it, don't turn it loose now



Hold it a little bit longer now



Hold it, go, hold it, yeah



Now ease up off me and get back







You made me a deal, and you're gonna stick to it



You shouldn't have promised if you wasn't gonna do it



You saw me and ran in another direction



I'll teach you to play with my affection



I played mistress for too long



Now your butt is mine plus your old girl's gone



Gimme with your all, and don't try to front



So don't act dumb, boy, you know what I want







Come on now, give it here



You never should have promised to me



Give it here, don't say nothin'



Just give it here, don't hold back now



Give it here, go







Yeah, the boy tried to flip on us, Pep



Yeah, well put him in check!







I've got ya now, and I ain't lettin' go



Payday's now 'cause I said so



Forget about all the other girls 'cause ya can't have none



'cause it's time to collect not a check but fun







I want you to kiss me



Hold it a long time



Hold it, don't turn it loose now



Hold it a little bit longer now



Hold it, go, hold it, yeah



Hold it, ow



Now ease up off me and get back
