Hey hey mama, said the way you move
Gonna make you sweat, gonna make you groove
Ah ah child, way you shake that thing
Gonna make you burn, gonna make you sting
Hey hey baby, when you walk that way
Watch your honey drip, I can't keep away

Oh yeah, oh yeah, oh, oh, ah
Oh yeah, oh yeah, oh, oh, ah

I gotta roll, can't stand still
Got a flaming heart, can't get my fill
Eyes that shine burning red
Dreams of you all through my head

Ah ah, ah ah
Ah ah, ah ah
Ah ah, ah ah, ahh

Hey baby, oh, baby, pretty baby
Tell me would you do me now
Hey baby, oh, baby, pretty baby
Move me while you groove me now

Take too long 'fore I found out
What people mean by down and out
Spent my money, took my car
Started telling her friend she gonna be a star
I don't know but I've been told
A big-legged woman ain't got no soul

Oh yeah, oh yeah, oh, oh, ah
Oh yeah, oh yeah, oh, oh, ah

All I ask for, all I pray
Steady rolling woman gonna come my way
Need a woman gonna hold my hand
Won't tell me no lies, make me a happy man

Ah ah, ah ah
Ah ah, ah ah
Ah ah, ah ah, ahh
