It seems like every time I come around
You say jay where have you been
'Cause you can't get your mind off all
The things you hear from your friends
Well I don't give a damn, 'cause they don't understand
The things that we do
They don't even know me
How the going to know what's best for you

So I do what I gotta do, I'm gunna get through to you 
I'm yours no doubt, I do what I gotta do
I'm trying to get through to you, right here right now

Living in the city, it can be so hard to stay on your feet
A girl that why it's good to know that I'm there for you and you're there for me
While were trying to get that paper it's a struggle just for us to get by
But if we stick together we gon' make it baby we'll be alright

I do what I gotta do, I'm gunna get through to you I'm yours no doubt
I do what I gotta do, I'm trying to get through to you, right here right now
I do what I gotta do, I'm gunna get through to you I'm yours no doubt
I do what I gotta do, I'm trying to get through to you, right here right now

I've got you babe
I've got you baby
I hold you down
And I do what I gotta do
I'm yours right now
I gotcha ya baby
I gotcha ya baby
I hold you down
I do what I gotta do 
I'm yours right now
