The Greatest Romance Ever Sold
The greatest romance that's ever been sold
Come on {repeated}
(NPG on E.V.E.)
Yo, your eyes seem 2 whisper into ecstasy
4 a long time I never let a soul next 2 me
Melted all over your frame and tested me - handled it
Honestly, my brain - U scrambled it (Your Adam)
Said U'd like 2 be my Adam, I needed that
And U're like "4ever", I stayed but U pleaded that
Made U mine, how could U ever leave-I?
E.V.E. created your feelings - the first believer ([And why's that?])
Embrace your whole being - soul I took over
I became your queen - U 2 me: my knight, my love soldier
Enjoy my fruit juices - abundant, have plenty
Never had 2 think twice, I'm yours alone 4 life, simply
Conquer all, breathe 4 each other, U'll never find
Love as warm or as deep or as enticing as mine
Control U - know U'll die without me
'Nuff said, nothing is temptin' as Eve - never doubt me
Make it alone without U, hah - clever
U's got the tight puller, I got the lever
Sweet drops of rain I am 2 your umbrella
2gether we make the remix a big sella
The greatest romance that's ever been sold
So whatdya know, U and me
Finally face 2 face
Checkin' each other up and down
In all of the obvious places
Was there ever a reason
4 us 2 be apart
The air that fills up this room says "not hardly"
So this is where U end
And U and I begin (This is where U and I, U and I begin)
CHORUS:
The greatest romance that's ever been sold
The greatest romance that's ever been sold
Baby, baby
Now your mind is open
2 poetry seldom heard
Your heart has never been broken
Until U've heard these words:
"Your body was designed 2 respond 2 mine
In spite of your desire 2 mold me"
And in the middle of it all
We kiss and like rain we fall into... (Like rain, we fall)
CHORUS
(Oh baby, oh baby, baby)
Oh, I know U feel me, I know that U can dance (Help)
But what do U know about the greatest romance?
Not what U think, but what U believe (Tell me)
What was the real reason that Adam never left Eve
And if the truth sounds like a memory
Then U know it was meant 2 be, meant 2 be (Meant 2 be)
Leave your inhibitions behind
Come on, come on, let's see (What? Why?)
The greatest romance
So this is where U end (This is where U end)
And U and I begin (U...)
CHORUS
(Uh huh, uh huh)
Let me holla atcha baby (Holla holla)
I know U can feel me, I know U can dance (I know)
But what do U know about the greatest romance?
(The greatest romance that's ever been sold)
Not what U think, but what U believe
Can U tell me the real reason that Adam never left Eve
(The greatest romance that's ever been sold)
I ain't gonna gonna leave U baby, no no
I ain't never gonna leave U, no
(The greatest romance that's ever been sold)
Can I tell U whatcha, can I tell ya whatcha did 4 me, baby?
Can I holla atcha one time, huh?
(The greatest romance that's ever been sold) (Greatest romance)
Listen 2 me, uh, U brought me the grapes from the vine, oh, yes U did
(The greatest romance that's ever been sold)
Can I talk 2 U? (Talk 2 U)
Listen, U help me 2 remember the secrets of time
And U, U, U, U offer me your love, your love, your love so divine
And in return girl, and in return I will surrender
Aw yeah, I will surrender, oh yes I will
CHORUS
...that's ever been sold {x3}
The greatest romance that's ever been sold

Hot Wit U (Nasty Girl Remix)
Hot wit U

(Treat U like the freak of the week) {repeats throughout song}

CHORUS:
2night, I'm living in a fantasy
Your own little nasty world
2night, don't U wanna come with me?
I bet U're a nasty girl
2night, I'm livin' in a fantasy
Your own little nasty world
2night, don't U wanna come with me?
I bet U're a nasty girl

I want 2 get hot with U
I wanna get U underneath the cream and do the marshmallow
Ooh I wanna get hot with U
I wanna get U 2 do something
U thought U'd never do
Like dance in front of my headlights
On a hot summer night - nude
I wanna get hot with U

CHORUS
(Nasty)

I want 2 get hot with U
I wanna make U climb this chain around my waist so I can prove
That I'm the only one that brings out the freak in U
I want 2 get hot with U

I wanna get hot wit U, I wanna get hot wit U {x2}
Know the body bangin', got U singin'
Ignore shouts from neighbors, telephone ringin' (Yeah)
Put me in positions thought I'd never do proper (Proper)
Created a machine, now U know U can't stop her
Tryin' 2 turn me out, it never happen, so stop this (Yeah, right)
I'm suppose 2 tremble cuz they call U "The Artist"? (Sho' U is, dear)
Let's wild out - can U handle ruff ridin'?
Treat U like the freak of the week and had U hidin' from me (Talk)
I'd do whatever U like if U could take it (Oh no)
If I could be your girlfriend, U could catch me naked
Can't front sexually, I'd like 2 sample
But I don't think that I'm ready 4 U 2 make me an example
I mean - come on - why front on (I wanna get hot wit U)
I'd never place time - queen of your life (I wanna get hot wit U)
I'm there, whenever
The things that U're feeling 4 me - mutual (I wanna get hot wit U)
But I'm ready 2 call U daddy, even get hot wit U (I wanna get hot wit U)

I wanna get hot wit U (2night I'm living in a fantasy)
Get U underneath the cream and ooh (Your own little nasty world)
Get U doin' things U thought U'd never do
Make U suck your tongue and say, "Ooh!"
I wanna get hot wit U (2night I'm living in a fantasy)
Take U upstairs 2 the 14th room (Your own little nasty world)
Multicolored lights and an ocean view
Ooh, I wanna get hot wit U

So we could drive 2 the ocean
And drown U in a wave of 100,000 compliments, boo
I want your everyday 2 be cool (Hot wit U)
And the only way 2 do that is every night
Get hot, get hot with U (Hot wit U)
Yeah, baby

CHORUS
(I wanna get hot wit U)
(Get U underneath the cream and ooh)
(Get U doin' things U thought U'd never do)
(Make U suck your tongue and say, "Ooh!")
(I wanna get hot wit U)
(Take U upstairs 2 the 14th room)
(Multicolored lights and an ocean view)
(Ooh, I wanna get hot wit U)

Hot wit U {x2}

CHORUS
(I wanna get hot wit U)
(Get U underneath the cream and ooh)
(Get U doin' things U thought U'd never do)
(Make U suck your tongue and say, "Ooh!")
(I wanna get hot wit U)

Nasty girl, nasty {x4}

Wanna get hot wit U

Tangerine
Some days I feel tangerine
Some days I feel blue
Some days I just wanna black out everything I felt 4 U
Even though I take your picture everywhere I go
I use it 4 a coaster and drink the overflow

Some days I make a lot of money and give it all away
2 take my mind off the tangerine color of your negligee'
Beggars can't be choosy if they don't know how 2 serve
U got a different phone number and a lot of nerve

Some days I feel tangerine
Some days I miss U, 2

So Far, So Pleased
So far, so pleased
I like the way U touch me
I like the way U tease
No car, no keys
I had 2 get us stranded if U know what I mean
Big scar on the knee
Beggin' 4 a kiss is such a dull routine
Still I'm so far, so far, so far, so pleased

So far, so fine
I find another beauty mark with every glass of red wine
So fast the time
Every time I have 2 go, I go and lose my mind
It's hard, okay
That's what happens when a boy and girl don't get 2 play
So far, so far, so far, so pleased

Yeah
Come on, come on

So far, so pleased
I like the way U touch me
I like the way U tease
No car, no keys
I could spend the night and leave at 10:15
So far, so far, so far, so pleased

Ooh yeah
So far, so pleased

The Sun, The Moon And Stars
It's late and I'm runnin' out of clever things 2 say
The kind that will bring a girl like U 2 tears
But there's only one more glass of this rosé
Let's throw it on the fire with our past
And dance the night away until...

CHORUS:
The sun, the moon and stars
Don't seem as far as they did yesterday
The sun, the moon and stars
In love we are - 4ever, always

It's late and I think it's 'bout time 4 U and me 2 get closer
2 get closer than we ever did before, ooh
Whenever there's a tide U can let it ride inside your interior
Lay back, relax upon my shore, ooh hoo
Ooh, baby, I wanna make love 2 U (Right here)
One inside the other one - no fear, we're here until...

CHORUS

Blow out this candle sunlight
And come lay down next 2 me
And paint another rainbow, ooh wee
Eclipse this light with ecstasy

Do U like I do
Puck, puck, puck, puck, come on, come on
It's late and I'm walkin' outta what 2 say
The kind of lucky rhyme make a chippy want 2 say
Whisper in the belly 2 me rock and rosé
Do U like I do come on and dance the night away
It's late but before they get 2 close the door
U and me we got 2 get out on the floor
Come on let the tide ride in and out the shore
I want 2 love U once again-a, then some more
Lay your head back I got my hand behind your head (Please, please, please)
Like U do the limbo 'cept it's on the bouncy bed (Okay, bounce, bounce)
Bouncing on the summer spring and when U start 2 fall
U'll come like the cold winter do in Montreal (Come on baby, the sun, the moon and stars)
Hey yeah {x3} (Let the tide ride, come on, let the tide ride)

CHORUS {x2}

Man'O'War (Remix)
Why U screamin'?
U know I'm not a man'o'war
Break the gold chain that I gave U
Throw it down on the floor
Instead of this 7 page letter
I wish I had peace of mind
Friends tell me, "U should go get her"
But lovin' U, lovin' U, lovin' U is a waste of time (Waste of time)
Aw, yes it is, a waste of time, ooh
Look at me
I need 2 get out of this city
I need 2 get U outta my head
I need 2 get away from the words that U said 2 me
(Why U screamin'?) Yeah
U know I'm not a man of war
What makes U think that I could put something inside of someone
That I put inside of U?
Even if I tried 2, if I tried 2 (Tried 2, tried 2)
I couldn't cuz I still smell like that last time that we
But lovin' U, lovin' U, lovin' U is a waste of time (Is a waste of time)
It's a waste of time (Waste of time)
Shall we work out? (Look out)
(Wanted)
Need 2 feel wanted again (Wanted again)
I need 2 feel love is alive (Is alive, is alive)
I need 2 hear U say that U ain't lookin' 4 another reason 2 make me cry
Why U screamin'? (Why?)
U know I'm not a man of war
I've been tryin' 2 make U happy, baby, ever since we were sophomores
But lovin' U, lovin' U, lovin' U is a waste of time (Waste of time)
Oh, yes it is, yes it is, a waste of time
If there is no future
Then there is no past
And all we've got is right now
2 make it last!
Why U screamin'?
Can we make it last - U know I'm not a man'o'war, baby
Break the gold chain that I gave U (Break it, break the gold chain)
Throw it down on the floor (Throw it down)
Instead of this 7 page letter
I wish I had peace of mind
My friends tell me, "U should go get her", that's what they tell me
But lovin' U, lovin' U, lovin' U's a waste of time (Waste of time)
I need 2 get out of this city
I need 2 get U outta my head
I need 2... how many say
"I got 2 get away, I got 2 get away"
Away from the words U said 2 me
Tryin' 2 take away my dignity
Peace of mind where I should be
Instead of this 7-page letter, see?
If U wanna serve me a plate of blues
I won't buy U no more shoes
Donatella lace U in dresses still?
I gets no love, but I pay the bill
I will, I will.. no
I will pay the bills
$100,000 and some change
I been tryin' 2 make U happy, baby
But lovin' U, lovin' U, lovin' U is a waste of time
Why U screamin'?
U know I'm not a man of war (Know I'm not a man of war)
Break the gold chain (Break the gold chain that I gave U)
Throw it down on the floor, on the floor, instead...
Instead of this 7 page letter
Well, I wish I had peace of mind
My friends tell me, "U should go get her"
But lovin' U, lovin' U, lovin' U, baby, is a waste of time
Oh (Oh) baby
U know I'm not a man'o'war

Baby Knows
Baby knows {repeats throughout song}
This funky joint in the city
Where the freaks come out 2 play
Venezuelan, black and pretty
The kind that make U wanna pay - hey!

She got the long dark legs
She got the butt that go 'round
This kind of poochie make u beg
And turn a dog into a hound

She tell me what I wanna hear, huh
She stroke me up and never down
Whispers sexiness in my ear
I'm just a junkie 4 the sound
She make U call your boys in a powwow
2 scope a plan how 2 ditch her man in a trunk of a Lexus
A perplexin' hex this witch has flexed

CHORUS:
She got the long dark legs
She got the butt that go 'round
This kind of poochie make u beg
Turn a dog into a hound

Baby, baby (Baby, baby)

She knows how 2 make U feel like your stuff ain't brown 2nite
And her perfume, it smell like the weekend

This funky joint way down in the city
Where the girls sing along 2 the Hip-Hop all night long
White girls, Black girls, Latinas - oh so pretty
Don't make me give U this ring baby
Ooh ooh ooh

CHORUS
Ow, girl (Baby, baby)
Baby knows
Hey, hey (Ba-ba-baby knows)
She got the long dark legs (Mmmm hmm!)
She got the butt that go 'round (The butt - goes round and round)
This kind of poochie make U beg (Yeah yeah yeah)
(Give me your number and I'll call U)
I know U just didn't turn me down!

I Love U, But I Don't Trust U Anymore
Rolling...
I could tell from the moment U walked in the room
That it wasn't your dress U had on
That wasn't your perfume
And what happened 2 the ring that I gave U?
What am I 2 assume?
I love U, but I don't trust U anymore
U could tell from the moment U looked in my eyes
That I could see right through U
U must apologize
I've always given U the best in life
Even in the wrong, it was right
I know U trust me, but U don't love me anymore, no no
I remember meeting U here in the good ol' days
I would never pick the flower of my favorite protégé
Maybe if I would have
Then U would not treat me this way
U tricked me, but U will not anymore, no no
I love U, but I don't trust U anymore

Beautiful Strange
Strangely beautiful, beautiful strange
That's what we say instead of the name
If U count the times he took all the blame
Then U would find the reason behind the game
Beautiful strange
In the darkness we must look 4 the way (2 the light)
Words so strange that only the mind can say (Say say)
If it makes no mind what color or holy day
Why is this game the only one that we play?
Beautiful strange
Dive inside your soul, U wanna know
The light inside the darkness 4ever glows
The sun is like the diamond inside the coal
Like an embryo it grows and grows and grows and grows
Beautiful strange, oh oh {x2}
Beautiful strange, oh, so strange
Beautiful Strange, oh yeah, oh (Strange)

Silly Game
I never thought U would be the one that I'd wanna run 2 (Run 2)
I never thought U would be the one that would make me care (Make me care)
And even though U done me wrong
4 some strange reason I can't explain
I get happy knowin' U phoned
Cuz your voice could cure my every pain
Why do we play this silly game?

I never thought U would be the one that I'd wanna give 2 (Give 2)
A diamond ring, anything that U asked me 2
But there U were, braggin' 2 your friends
Makin' up a story that's so lame
That I was down 2 be your sugar daddy
One way ticket 2 ghetto fame
Why do we play this silly game?
Every other night U weren't at home
Out in the streets, just acting grown
Never with a bodyguard or chaperone
Then I hear a rumor that breaks my heart
Instead of takin' care of yourself, U're tearin' yourself apart
Now why U wanna, why U wanna, why U wanna
Now why U wanna go and do that, love?
Why do we play this silly game?

I never thought U would be the one that I'd wanna run 2
I never thought U'd be the one that would make me care
No matter how far I'd run, I'll never be the same (I'll never be the same)
In the end, in the end, there's only us 2 blame

Why do we play this
Why do we play this silly
Why do we play this silly game?

Oh ahh, hmmm
Tell me why, oh why, oh why, oh why, why, why, why
Why do we play this silly game?
Game

Wherever U Go, Whatever U Do
Wherever U go, whatever U do
Oh, please remember that I'll always be there 4 U
U don't have 2 call, U don't have 2 say
Just think about me and I'll be on my way
I don't have 2 worry, I'm sure U'll be fine
Cuz if U stay happy, then what's yours is mine
Wherever U go, whatever U do
Remember that I'll always be there 4 U (Oh yeah)

Wherever U are, think of your dreams
Ooh, please remember life ain't always what it seems
4 each rainy day (rainy day) that come your way
The sun will come shinin' and U'll be okay
Keep on smilin' - every girl and boy
Remember when U were children U had toys
Wherever U are, think of your dreams
Remember that dreams become the life U lead

Whatever U play, it's okay 2 lose sometimes (Oh, sometimes)
As long as U learn from every game U choose
If one thing is sure, U'll always endure
If U try your best at everything U do
Say what U mean and mean what U say
The price 4 a broken heart's 2 much 2 pay
And nothing is worth it if U don't have 2 try
The higher the stakes, the higher the sky

Wherever U go, whatever U do
Please remember, remember that I'll always be there 4 U

Prettyman

Hey, uh, Prettyman, looka here

No money back guarantee when I'm above
Pretty man
