My homie since knee high 
We came up on the south side 
Where you had to beat the street lights home 
We got into some street fights 
But the next day we be right back get it all
Wherever there was me, there was you 
And we were like crew
Straight from junior high school
Then you messed it all up
Started pushing up
Kissed me on the cheek
And I fell in love

Shorty's a little taller now 
Into big things, he's a baller now 
His heart never changed 
I can see he's still down 
I can't forget him (No no no no) 
More than his voice is changing now 
All that I see is rearranging now (Now) 
It just ain't the same 
Catchin' feelings now 
I should tell him (Yeah) 

[Chorus]
Oh when the the boy next door (Next door) 
Don't want to be my homeboy no more 
Saw something that I never saw before 
I think he wants to be my baby, baby 
Been thinkin' bout him all my life (My life) 
Now I see him in a whole new light 
Something about it feels so right (That's why) 
I think he wants to be my baby, baby 

Every night when we get home 
Undercover talking on the phone 
Here comes my mother 
It's way too late 
Might get in trouble 
My heart can't wait (So much to take) 
Writing till my hand cramps up 
4 pages saying I'm in love (I got a crush) 
Can't get you off my mind (Can you pick me up baby) 
I'm sure I'll be fine when I look into your eyes 

Shorty's a little taller now 
Into big things, he's a baller now 
His heart never changed 
I can see he's still down 
I can't forget him 
More than his voice is changing now 
All that I see is rearranging now 
It just ain't the same 
Catchin' feelings now 
I should tell him (Gotta tell him that I love him) 

[Chorus]

[Bridge: x2]
Chocolate covered candy kisses 
They keep me reminiscing 
All I want is what your giving 
Nothing like your affection 
So in love and you're the reason 
There's no more lonely season 
Lately boy, you drive me crazy 
Think I wanna be your baby 

(Don't wanna be my homeboy no more) 
(Why why why why why) 
Now homeboy wants to be my baby, be my baby, be my baby 
(He don't wanna be my homeboy no more) 
(No more) 
(Said he) 
Now homeboy wants to be my baby, be my baby, be my baby 
(Wants to be my baby now, now, now now now)
