I seen her in the subway on my way to Brooklyn 
Hello good looking is this seat tooken 
On the A train picking at her brain 
I couldn't get her number I couldn't get her name 
I said I still like your style of fashion 
But I hate your hostile 'itty attitude wit a passion 
Is it because brothers like to hawk a lot 
Is it because your sign don't talk a lot 
She turned away no play I said OK 
You don't really look good, I hope you have a bad day 
Sat back, relaxed though the ride was tight 
I was thinking of the rhymes I wrote last night 
Next stop was mine, a familiar scene 
I was meeting my friend, killer Ben in Ft Green 
Where the girls are real, they tell ya how they feel 
If you're soft, you're soft, or if you're hard like steel 
See I don't bend and I won't rust 
And I don't break and I won't bust 
Stomped up the street and did I hear a treat? 
Hard high heels tappin' on the concrete 
I took a peek, it was the girl from the train behind me 
Did she live in the area, was she trying to find me? 
Hm, I didn't want to play myself out 
I played it off, stopped and I bought a Guinness Stout 
Now was she shy, she didn't walk by 
She came in the store then she even said hi 
Curiosity at a high velocity 
Maybe possibly she had the hots for me 
I said if we're playing games then we're gonna play mine 
I'm a lay the rules 'cause it ain't much time 
If you hide your feelings, and they hard to find, 
I want to know what's on your mind 

About a week went by and I called her, "Hello" 
I said yo, can I speak to, um, she said no 
Hey yo, I know I didn't call, I didn't want to stress you 
Go out my way to impress you, press to undress you 
See I want to get to know you so I can show you 
What a strong relationship can grow to 
But you gotta trust me and you're gonna love me 
Squeeze the phone and hug me, use your mind to rub me 
Now how does it feel when my mental, massage ya temple 
Telephone's hot from the vibes that I sent you 
Now tell me your inner thoughts and deepest emotions 
Next you see ectacy's explosions 
Now I'm coming to see you to spend some time 
I'm a romantic warrior but is it a crime 
And if you hide your feelings and they hard to find

I want to know what's on your mind 
I want to know what's on your mind 

Now it's been months and it's smooth and lovely 
I'm in your head so you'll be thinking of me 
So we met in Queens and went to Valley Streams 
And, uh, couldn't remember the movie we just seen 
But it's Wednesday, take the train uptown 
How do the 125th street sound 

Amateur night, Showtime at the Apollo 
Probably be watching Bill Cosby tomorrow 
Then after that get into it, I mean intimate 
Every word is an instrument 
Making sounds and tones and songs and moans 
My lips so close to your ear, it's like headphones 
You smile, you said you never know what the day will bring 
It's always a new song to sing 
The next day I went back to the her rest 
Knocked on the door, intentions: finesse 
She let me in and had nothing but a neglige on 
Smelling like Liz Claiborne 
I sat down and got comfortable and watched the Huxtables 
She sat next to me and said what's up wit you 
I got the feeling for sexual healing 
A mental healing how you feeling 
She caught the effect and said she feel the same 
Could you massage my intellect and stop the pain 
Desire's yearning, the fire's burning 
You hot 'cause it's a lot you're learning 
Now I'm ready to explore you inner world 
It's take a long time 'cause I'm just beginning, girl
Take it easy, cut off the TV 
Cut off the lights, use your mind to see me, 
Use your physical form if I'm hard to find 
'Cause now I know what's on your mind
'Cause now I know what's on your mind
