THE MARIAH NETWORK

The Emancipation Of Mimi

Released on April 12, 2005, "The Emancipation Of Mimi" debuted at number one on the Billboard 200 after selling over 404,000 copies in the US, the highest first-week sales of Mariah's career at the time. It would go on to become her highest-selling album since 1995's "Daydream".

The lead single, "It's Like That", released on January 5, 2005, became one of Mariah's biggest commercial hits in years, peaking at number 16 on the Billboard Hot 100.

"We Belong Together" was released on March 29, 2005 as the second single. It reached the top of the Billboard Hot 100, becoming Mariah's sixteenth number one song. After staying at number one for fourteen weeks, the song became tied for the second longest running number one song in US chart history, behind Mariah's 1995 duet with Boyz II Men, "One Sweet Day".

"Shake It Off" was chosen as the third single and released in the US on July 12, 2005. In its seventh week on the chart, it peaked at number two, behind "We Belong Together", marking the first time a female artist occupied the top two positions of the Billboard Hot 100.

After its commercial success, the album was re-released on November 15, 2005 under the title "The Emancipation of Mimi: Ultra Platinum Edition" including three bonus tracks, a remix of "We Belong Together" and an extra DVD with the "It's Like That", "We Belong Together", "Shake It Off" and "Get Your Number" music videos, an exclusive interview and access to the "Don't Forget About Us" music video.

One of the bonus tracks from the re-release, "Don't Forget About Us", was released as the fourth single on December 12, 2005, reaching the top of the Billboard Hot 100 and becoming Mariah's seventeenth number one single.

The last single released from the album was "Say Somethin'", on April 3, 2006, which peaked at number seventy-nine on the Billboard Hot 100.

I didn't mean it when I said
I didn't love you so
I should have held on tight
I never should have let you go
I didn't know nothing,
I was stupid, I was foolish
I was lying to myself
I couldn't have fathomed
I would ever be without your love
Never imagined I'd be sitting
Here beside myself Guess I didn't know you
Guess I didn't know me
But I thought I knew everything
I never felt

The feeling that I'm feeling
Now that I don't hear your voice
Or have your touch and kiss your lips
Cause I don't have a choice
Oh what I wouldn't give
To have you lying by my side
Right here cause baby

When you left I lost a part of me
It's still so hard to believe
Come back baby please cause
We belong together
Who else am I gonna lean on
When times get rough
Who's gonna talk to me on the phone
Till the sun comes up
Who's gonna take your place
There ain't nobody better
Oh baby baby
We belong together

I can't sleep at night
When you are on my mind
Bobby Womack's on the radio
Singing to me
"If you think you're lonely now"
Wait a minute this is too deep
I gotta change the station
So I turn the dial tryin' to catch a break
And then I hear Babyface
"I only think of you" and
It's breakin' my heart
I'm tryin' to keep it together
But I'm falling apart

I'm feeling all out of my element
Throwing things, crying tryin'
To figure out where the hell I went wrong
The pain reflected in this song
Ain't even half of what I'm feeling inside
I need you, need you back in my life baby

When you left I lost a part of me
It's still so hard to believe
Come back baby please cause
We belong together
Who else am I gonna lean on
When times get rough
Who's gonna talk to me on the phone
Till the sun comes up
Who's gonna take your place
There ain't nobody better
Oh baby baby
We belong together

When you left I lost a part of me
It's still so hard to believe
Come back baby please cause
We belong together
Who am I gonna lean on
When times get rough
Who's gonna talk to me
Till the sun comes up
Who's gonna take your place
There ain't nobody better
Oh baby baby
We belong together

I gotta shake you off
Cause the loving ain't the same
And you keep on playing games
Like you know I'm here to stay
I gotta shake you off
Just like the Calgon commercial
I really gotta get up outta here
And go somewhere
I gotta shake you off
Gotta make that move
Find somebody who
Appreciates all the love I give
Boy I gotta shake you off gotta do what's best for me
Baby and that means I gotta
Shake you off

By the time you get this message
It's gonna be too late
So don't bother paging me
Cause I'll be on my way
See I grabbed all my diamonds and clothes
Just ask your momma she knows
You're gonna miss me baby
Hate to say "I told you so"
Well at first I didn't know
But now it's clear to me
You would cheat with all your freaks
And lie compulsively
So I packed up my Louis Vuitton
Jumped in your ride and took off
You'll never ever find a girl
Who loves you more than me

I gotta shake you off
Cause the loving ain't the same
And you keep on playing games
Like you know I'm here to stay
I gotta shake you off
Just like the Calgon commercial
I really gotta get up outta here
And go somewhere
I gotta shake you off
Gotta make that move
Find somebody who
Appreciates all the love I give
Boy I gotta shake you off
Gotta do what's best for me
Baby and that means I gotta
Shake you off

I gotta shake, shake,
Shake, shake, shake it
Off...

I found out about a gang
Of your dirty little deeds
With this one and that one
By the pool, on the beach, in the streets
Heard y'all was
Hold up my phone's breakin' up
I'ma hang up and
Call the machine right back
I gotta get this off of my mind
You wasn't worth my time
I'm leaving you behind
Cause I need a real love in my life
Save this recording because
I'm never coming back home
Baby I'm gone
Don't cha know

I gotta shake you off
Cause the loving ain't the same
And you keep on playing games
Like you know I'm here to stay
I gotta shake you off
Just like the Calgon commercial
I really gotta get up outta here
And go somewhere
I gotta shake you off
Gotta make that move
Find somebody who
Appreciates all the love I give
Boy I gotta shake you off
Gotta do what's best for me
Baby and that means I gotta
Shake you off

I remember when you used to be mine
Way back when
I was too naïve to love you right
But now if I only had the opportunity
I would do anything
Because my heart still believes

Maybe you could be mine again
Maybe we could make that dream for real
Like way back then
When love was yours and mine
Maybe we could bring it back to life

It's irrelevant to dwell on the past
I'm accountable for what went bad
And I mean that
But I keep on praying for another chance
Just to have you back
Cause I've grown
And I know how to be your everything

Maybe you could be mine again
Maybe we could make that dream for real
Like way back then
When love was yours and mine
Maybe we could bring it back to life

No, no it ain't over yet
I just can't accept the possibility
We weren't made for each other's arms
I know you're my destiny
We can't erase what was meant to be
Part of you and part of me
If we try one more time
Maybe somehow we'll survive

Maybe you could be mine again
Maybe we could make that dream for real
Like way back then
When love was yours and mine
Boy maybe we could bring it back
Maybe we could bring it back
Maybe we could bring it back to...
Life
Maybe you could be mine

I am over here
Looking at you
You are over there
Watching me too
Both painting pictures of
Of how we'll kiss and ****!
So what we gon' do
(so what you gon' do, what you gon' do)
Tell me why we're standing here
The moment's fresh and so sincere
You got my mind blown
And baby, I'm ready to go

But uh...
If it's worth your while
Say something, say something
If it's worth your while
Say something good to me
Hey, hey, hey, hey, hey
If it's worth your while
Do something good to me

(let's make it)
Hot as you can stand it
Something like volcanic
You and me seems organic
Just like the stars and planets
Yeah, we are
So what you gon' do
(so what you gon' do, what you gon' do)
Tell me why we're still in here
There's nothing for us to fear
I can tell it with my eyes closed
And baby, I'm ready to go

But uh...
If it's worth your while
Say something, say something
If it's worth your while
Say something good to me
Hey, hey, hey, hey, hey
If it's worth your while
Do something good to me
If it's worth your while
Say something, say something
If it's worth your while
Say something good to me baby
Hey, hey, hey, hey, hey
If it's worth your while
Do something good to me

Snoop Dogg:
Every time I fall though
Want me to speak on a word or two
It's the D O double G
And I do it, so lovely
Diggin' this track by The Neptunes
Babygirl, follow me to the rest room
Now get buck wild
Shh... don't make a sound
I'll take you, lay you down
Make your body go round and round
Do you want to?
Don't say you won't
I know you do
Most girls play shy
It won't hurt until you give it a try
I know you like my smile
Dig my style
Big bow wow

But uh...
If it's worth your while
Say something, say something
If it's worth your while
Say something good to me
Hey, hey, hey, hey, hey
If it's worth your while
Do something good to me
If it's worth your while
Say something, say something
If it's worth your while
Say something good to me
Hey, hey, hey, hey, hey
If it's worth your while
Do something good to me

You're kissing me
And saying I'm the one you need
To keep you warm
And lay with you tonight
Baby I feel the same way
I don't want to leave
Wanna hold you close
And feel your love inside
But I don't wanna play myself
Cause I know you're with someone else
And I don't need complications in my life
And I don't wanna fall back in
And get caught up in you again
Boy I'm so conflicted in my mind

You keep saying stay the night
Just let me rock you
Till the morning light
It's cold outside
And much too late to drive
You know I need you baby
I'm so lost without your love

Obviously, procrastinating just to be
Close to you a little longer now
It's hard for me
To break away from you baby
Never could resist you
And I still haven't learned how
And I don't wanna be a fool
But it's hard when it comes to you
And I'm feeling vulnerable tonight
Cause I don't wanna miss the chance
Of reliving our sweet romance
Boy I'm so confused down deep inside

You keep saying stay the night
Just let me rock you til the morning light
It's cold outside
And much too late to drive
You know I need you baby
I'm so lost without your love

Oh damn
The club 'bout to close in a minute
Can I get your number baby
So you and I can go get in it
Let me come and pick you up
And go take you out
Can I get your number baby
So I can show you what I'm all about
What I'm all about
Damn

I've been checkin' you out
And I noticed that you ain't
Just one of the crowd
So tell me won't you
Come on and see about me baby
I've got the Cris on ice
I'm 'bout to get nice
Up in VIP with all my ladies
Tell me how many times in your life
Will you get an opportunity
Like this tonight
Tell me a little somethin' about you
Here's a little somethin' about me
I got a house in Capri and my own G4
And that Benz with the doors that lift up
From the floor

Oh damn
The club 'bout to close in a minute
Can I get your number baby
So you and I can go get in it
Let me come and pick you up
And go take you out
Can I get your number baby
So I can show you what I'm all about
What I'm all about
Damn

Now that you're sitting next to me
I bet you're wondering
What my intentions are for you
And I to get into
Baby I just wanna
Hug and kiss and love ya
Look into my eyes baby don't be shy
Is it yes or no
We ain't got all night
Tell me how many times in your life
Will you get an opportunity
Like this tonight
Tell me a little somethin' about you
Here's a little somethin' about me
I gotta pip penthouse with a sick hot tub
We can watch the flat screen
While the bubbles fill it up

Oh damn
The club 'bout to close in a minute
Can I get your number baby
So you and I can go get in it
Let me come and pick you up
And go take you out
Can I get your number baby
So I can show you what I'm all about
What I'm all about
Damn

La, la, la, la, la, la

I'm lookin' for my one and only
Every time I turn around
I find my heart in pieces on the ground
So so lonely
I'm lookin' for my one and only

I'm riding home in pain again baby
But that don't mean s*** to you
You're currently engaged
In an intimate conversation
With a young groupie or two
They say "players only love you
When they're playing games"
Still I gave my heart to you
I should have stayed away
Like my friends all told me to

Every time I turn around
I find my heart in pieces on the ground
So so lonely
I'm lookin' for my one and only
Every time I turn around
I find my heart in pieces on the ground
Why can't I find my one and only

See I'm looking for a man
That'll rub me slow
Make me sing real high
When he goes down low
But see it ain't just a physical thing
He's gotta treat me affectionately
And I gotta know he won't betray my trust
Just like every other motherf***** does
Is this just an impossible dream baby
Too elusive to pursue
It's been such a sad
And windy road for me
Just searchin' for the truth

Every time I turn around
I find my heart in pieces on the ground
So so lonely
I'm lookin' for my one and only
Every time I turn around
I find my heart in pieces on the ground
Why can't I find my one and only

Twista:
Now you know I'm rollin' Beamer and a Benz
And I'm dishing out ends
Why you trippin' on a player, baller
Having bitter conversations while we rollin' on twenty fours
And I know you got doubts
Why you listen to what people talk about
You ain't figured out why they call you
The heffa steady hating cause you rolling on twenty fours
See how you money flow
You dressed in designer clothes from head to the toe
You ain't satisfied, well tell me what you looking for
(I'm looking for my one and only)
Well I'll be you one and only
If you give me a chance I'll make the change for you girl
I know I ain't been the most faithful n*** in the world
But let's stay together so we can shine like pearls
Spit it to you while I fill a swisha with fire
To kiss you lips I desire
Twist and Mariah, together like the grip and the tire
(I'm looking for my one and only)
Well come on shawty let me make it better
We can do whatever, while we sittin' on suede and leather
Feeling through the city while we rolling chrome and
Let's kick it in the Chi, I know I messed up with you I ain't gon' lie
I knew you was feeling you really know you guy
But baby girl I ain't mean to blow your high
Let me pick the pieces up and put 'em back together
Cause I wanna be with you, don't wanna leave you lonely
Ride with you like the homie, never no phony
Shawty can I be you one and only

Every time I turn around
I find my heart in pieces on the ground
So so lonely
I'm lookin' for my one and only
Every time I turn around
I find my heart in pieces on the ground
Why can't I find my one and only

Repeat

Ever since you left me
I've been trying to hide the pain
Painting on a smile with lipstick
Putting on a big charade
So difficult to keep pretending
It's getting harder everyday
It's plain to see I'm cold and heartsick
Since you turned and walked away
I just keep going round and round
And round in circles
Keep on tumbling down

Oh boy my world has changed
And I don't think I can make it without you
Nothing's the same
You got me running around
In circles over you
(Running around in circles over you)

Saturday I saw you
Holding hands with someone new
Somehow I kept my composure
Just like everything was cool
But inside I kept repeating
Don't you let them see you cry
So I casually turned my head
As the tears rolled down my eyes
I just keep going round and round
And round in circles
Keep on tumbling down

Oh boy my world has changed
And I don't think I can make it without you
Nothing's the same
You got me running around
In circles over you

Everything is you
How can I pull through
My heart is consumed I'm so confused
Still caught up in you...
Love can be so cruel
Baby don't know how to turn you loose

Oh boy my world has changed
And I don't think I can make it without you
No, nothing's the same
You got me running around
And running around
And running around
Nothing's the same
Baby baby cause you
Got me running around
In circles over you
(Running around in circles over you)

See, I used to be so shy
Sit at home and fantasize
But I ain't wastin' no more time
Cause I've got to make you mine

I'm gonna make you want to
Get with me tonight
I'm gonna put those naughty
Thoughts into your mind
I'm gonna show you clearly
I can rock your world
You're gonna know for sure
That I should be your girl

See I used to be afraid
But now baby I can't wait
I just gotta have your love
And enough's enough's enough

I'm gonna make you want to
Get with me tonight
I'm gonna put those naughty
Thoughts into your mind
I'm gonna show you clearly
I can rock your world
You're gonna know for sure
That I should be your girl

I've got to see you
Wherever you are
And I've got to be there
I'm wishing on stars
I've got to reveal
What's inside of my heart
But the words escape me
And I'm paralyzed
So helpless when I
Look into your eyes

And how I wish you only knew
What I feel inside for you you
Probably haven't got a clue
But I wish you knew
How I love you baby

Honestly I know it's silly of me
To want you so badly
But keep it concealed
See my inferiority complex kicks in
And the words escape me
And I'm paralyzed
So helpless when I
Look into your eyes

And how I wish you only knew
What I feel inside for you
You probably haven't got a clue
But I wish you knew
How I love you baby

Baby baby don't you ever let go
More and more until we both overflow
Got a feeling that my heart's never known
I found love
Tender kisses and I'm floating on air
You can have me anytime, anywhere
When you need me I will always be there
I found love

And our love goes round and round
Way up high, a joy ride
We can touch the stars above
We found love
And our love was heaven sent
From the day we first met
We've got something they can't touch
We found love

Loving you is like a taste of heaven
Wanna gaze into your eyes forever
Run away and spend our lives together
I've found love
Baby baby
All it takes is one touch
And immediately I feel a rush
Baby boy, too much is never enough
I found love

And our love goes round and round
Way up high, a joy ride
We can touch the stars above
We found love
And our love was heaven sent
From the day we first met
We've got something they can't touch
We found love

I don't need anything
When you're here next to me
Nobody in this whole wide world
Could ever replace you in my eyes
We found paradise
Forever you and I
Our love goes round and round
On a joy ride
(with ya babe, with ya babe,
With ya babe, with you baby)

Somehow I know that
There's a place up above
With no more hurt and struggling
Free of all atrocities and suffering
Because I feel the unconditional love
From one who cares enough for me
To erase all my burdens
And let me be free to

Fly like a bird
Take to the sky
I need you now Lord
Carry me high
Don't let the world break me tonight
I need the strength of you by my side
Sometimes this life can be so cold
I pray you'll come and carry me home

Can we recover
Will the world ever be
A place of peace and harmony
With no war and with no brutality
If we loved each other
We would find victory
But in this harsh reality
Sometimes I'm so despondent
That I feel the need to

Fly like a bird
Take to the sky
I need you now Lord
Carry me high
Don't let the world break me tonight
I need the strength of you by my side
Sometimes this life can be so cold
I pray you'll come and carry me home

Keep your head to the sky
With God's love you'll survive

Fly like a bird
Take to the sky
I need you now Lord
Carry me high
Don't let the world break me tonight
I need the strength of you by my side
Sometimes this life can be so cold
I pray you'll come and carry me home
Carry me higher, higher, higher
Carry me higher, higher, higher
Carry me home
Higher Jesus
Carry me higher Lord

Just let it die
With no goodbyes
Details don't matter
When both pay the price
Tears in my eyes
You know sometimes
It'd be like that, baby

Now every time I see you
I pretend I'm fine
When I wanna reach out to you
But I turn and I walk and I let it ride

Baby, I must confess
We were bigger than anything
Remember us at our best
And don't forget about

Late nights, playin' in the dark
And wakin' up inside my arms
Boy, you'll always be in my heart and
I can see it in your eyes
You still want it
So don't forget about us

I'm just speaking from experience
Nothing can compare to your first true love
So I hope this will remind you
When it's for real, it's forever
So don't forget about us

Oh they say
That you're in a new relationship
But we both know
Nothing comes close to
What we had, it perseveres
That we both can't forget it
How good we used to get it

There's only one me and you
And how we used to shine
No matter what you go through
We are one, that's a fact
That you can't deny
So, baby, we just can't let
The fire pass us by
Forever we'd both regret
So don't forget about

Late nights, playin' in the dark
And wakin' up inside my arms
Boy, you'll always be in my heart and
I can see it in your eyes
You still want it
So don't forget about us

I'm just speaking from experience
Nothing can compare to your first true love
So I hope this will remind you
When it's for real, it's forever
So don't forget about us

And if she's got your head all messed up now
That's the trickery
She'll wanna have like you know how this lovin' used to be
I bet she can't do like me
She'll never be MC
Baby, don't you, don't you forget about us

Late nights, playin' in the dark
And wakin' up inside my arms
Boy, you'll always be in my heart and
I can see it in your eyes
You still want it
So don't forget about us

I'm just speaking from experience
Nothing can compare to your first true love
So I hope this will remind you
When it's for real, it's forever
So don't forget about us

Late nights, playin' in the dark
And wakin' up inside my arms
Boy, you'll always be in my heart and
I can see it in your eyes
You still want it
So don't forget about us

I'm just speaking from experience
Nothing can compare to your first true love
So I hope this will remind you
When it's for real, it's forever
So don't forget about us

Don't, baby, don't, baby, don't let it go
No, baby, no, baby, no, baby no
Don't, baby, don't, baby, don't let it go
When it's for real, it's forever
So don't forget about us

What it look like
What it do
What it look like
What it do

Got me fly and sexy
Something in you gets me so tingly inside
Visions of us in the cut tonight
And I find you so appealing
Definitely feeling you
If you didn't know
Boy you're the secret I've never told

Betcha think I'm teasin'
But I ain't got no reason to deny
The way I feel inside, tonight
I just wanna touch you
Put my hands on you and love you
You'll be like
I want you
Over and over and over and over again

(What it look like)
Me and you makin' it last all night
(What it do)
My heart is beatin' faster all the time
(What it look like)
Boy you don't even know everything that flows through my mind
(What it do)
Ooh, boy what you gon' do about it

Jermaine Dupri:
Listen, I got stacks like the International House of Pancakes
Your man great, got more Rovers then a Land make
I make hits and I don't care about your damn hate
Can't stop, yeah, I just do it for the fans' sake
You know this man, take trips to Japan
Tell 'em dry the runway out, don't want it wet when I land
O5's my year, 06 ain't stoppin'
You look up again at the charts I'm toppin' (So So Def)
That's how I do it, man

What must I say
What must I do
To show how much
I think about freakin' you
What must I say
What must I do
To show how much
I think about freakin' you

Tonight, I need your body (I need your body baby)
Tonight, you got my time (Every little second of my time baby)
Tonight, you won't be sorry (No, you won't be sorry baby)
Tonight, you gon' be mine

Betcha think I'm teasin'
But I ain't got no reason to deny
The way I feel inside, tonight
I just wanna touch you
Put my hands on you and love you
You'll be like
I want you
Over and over and over and over again

(What it look like)
Me and you makin' it last all night
(What it do)
My heart is beatin' faster all the time
(What it look like)
Boy you don't even know everything that flows through my mind
(What it do)
Ooh, boy what you gon' do about it

(What it look like)
Me and you makin' it last all night
(What it do)
My heart is beatin' faster all the time
(What it look like)
Boy you don't even know everything that flows through my mind
(What it do)
Ooh, boy what you gon' do about it

Mariah:
I've been layin' alone on my back in the dark
Sometimes wish you was with me
Talkin' late on the phone and all that
He's saying all the things you told me
'Cause I know inside we belong to each other incidentally
I'm in need of healin'
You're the only one to give me that feelin'

Twista:
You know I like the way you kick it girl
You know I like it when you in my world
Come here lil mama let me freak your body
Then roll wit me in the Bentley white pearl
Girl you know you get me so erotic
Especially when I be sipping Hypnotiq
Got me feeling like I'm smoking on Chronic
When we f*cking it be so exotic
Now I know that everything will be fire wit Mariah
And she know she be dealin' wit a baller
Can't go fast 'cause I'm heavy through the wire
Fulfillin' desires like a Chi shot caller
Do you love how the Twist throw it at you
Do you love when I hit it from the back too
Let me feel how you work it that one way
Come on baby girl let me see what you can do

Mariah:
I wish that we could
Blow out the speakers
Over and over
To them Jodeci cuts
Forever your lady
You act right then maybe
Ain't nothing to talk about
Put the music loud
So they won't hear me say

Come and be my one and only
I'm tired of being so lonely
Come hold me
I wanna wrap myself around you
Whenever you want to
Come make me say
Come be my one and only
I'm tired of being so lonely
Console me
Wanna wrap myself around you
Whenever you want to
Come make me say

Twista:
Now we pulling up out the garage
In the platinum blue Arnage
Me and you about to hit that club
To the bar so we can sip that bud
Both of us together would be the livest
If I had to break it down how would I describe it
We the type of couple when we get up on each other
We get it crackin' in the kitchen or the bedroom
It don't matter where we at we be making noise
So play the track so the base will make ya head boom
Break ya off when ya hold one leg up
And you know I like the way you put it on me
It's the East Coast queen and the Midwest Mob Boss
Shawty I will never leave ya lonely

Mariah:
I wish that we could
Blow out the speakers
Over and over
To them Jodeci cuts
Forever your lady
You act right then maybe
Ain't nothing to talk about
Put the music loud
So they won't hear me say

Come and be my one and only
I'm tired of being so lonely
Come hold me
I wanna wrap myself around you
Whenever you want to
Come make me say
Come be my one and only
I'm tired of being so lonely
Console me
Wanna wrap myself around you
Whenever you want to
Come make me say

So just show a girl what it do
After this boy I promise to do
You got my body lit up like the moon
You're too persuasive, I can't take it
I'm so caught up in you

Come and be my one and only
I'm tired of being so lonely
Come hold me
I wanna wrap myself around you
Whenever you want to
Come make me say

Baby, when you look my way
You keep on blowing my mind
You keep on making me high
Keep giving me butterflies
And every little thing you do
Just lifts me off of the ground
Heart leaps when you come around
See, I'm just breaking it down

You got everything I need
Just want you to want me
You just can't imagine
Boy, I'm on a tangent

'Cause I'm sprung over you
And ain't nothing I can do
Turning me upside down
Boy, you got me twisted out
Thoughts of you fill my head
Toss and turn in my bed
'Cause I'm sprung over you
And I don't know, don't know what to do

Always tryin' to make believe
It's just a casual thing
You're so unnerving to me
Feels like I'm living a dream
Baby, please don't wake me up
Im lost in the reverie
Drifting ethereally
I'm right where I wanna be

You got everything I need
Just want you to want me
You just can't imagine
Boy, I'm on a tangent

'Cause I'm sprung over you
And ain't nothing I can do
Turning me upside down
Boy, you got me twisted out
Thoughts of you fill my head
Toss and turn in my bed
'Cause I'm sprung over you
And I don't know, don't know what to do

I don't care 'bout nothing but you, baby
I don't care 'bout nothing but you, baby

'Cause I'm sprung over you
And ain't nothing I can do
Turning me upside down
Boy, you got me twisted out
Thoughts of you fill my head
Toss and turn in my bed
'Cause I'm sprung over you
And I don't know, don't know what to do

'Cause I'm sprung over you
And ain't nothing I can do
Turning me upside down
Boy, you got me twisted out
Thoughts of you fill my head
Toss and turn in my bed
'Cause I'm sprung over you
And I don't know, don't know what to do

Oh baby, oh baby
Come give it to me now baby
But keep it between us
You and me got a secret love baby

Oh baby, oh baby
Come give it to me now baby
But keep it on the hush
You're not mine, got a secret love baby

It was a summer's day when walking by
She didn't notice as as you turned
And you discreetly winked your eye
And I remembered you from back in the day
You were the boy I couldn't breathe without
The one that got away

Oh baby, oh baby
Come give it to me now baby
But keep it between us
You and me got a secret love baby

Oh baby, oh baby
Come give it to me now baby
But keep it on the hush
You're not mine, got a secret love baby

Now that I found you, I cannot let you go
You know I got my man at home
But baby I still need you so
And I know you ain't never leaving that girl
But every time you touch me baby
It feels so incredible

Oh baby, oh baby
Come give it to me now baby
But keep it between us
You and me got a secret love baby

Oh baby, oh baby
Come give it to me now baby
But keep it on the hush
You're not mine, got a secret love baby

Secret lovers, yeah
You and me
You and me
You and me baby

Oh
baby, oh baby
Come give it to me now baby
But keep it between us
You and me got a secret love baby

Oh baby, oh baby
Come give it to me now baby
But keep it on the hush
You're not mine, got a secret love baby

Baby, baby, baby
Come give it to me, baby
We got a secret love, darling
Keep it between us, baby

Baby, baby, baby
Come give it to me, baby
We got a secret love, darling
Keep it on the hush, baby
