Excuse me Miss, can we chat for a second
I'd ask how you doin', but you fine I reckon
Wait, do you have a man, cause I ain't' into home-wreckin
No?. .Aiight cool just checkin
Look, from a hundred yards you caught my eye
An all my boys said I didn't have the heart to say hi
I'd like to have your number you don't have ta give it now
But if you diss me while they lookin I'm a never live it down
why'know what I mean, Aww damn, my name's Will
Maxine.  Pleasure to meet you, look here's the deal
Can I sit?  Thanks, now I don't mean to objectify
But this the metaphore that crossed my mind
You sweet, good enough to eat
Make a brother want to TLC--Creep
A brother can't sleep
It's like a kid fallin for you 
So here's my own private nickname, I'm a call you


Candy (No Doubt, Do you want to bounce?)
It's the same feelin I always feel together but now
Let's get this started now
Let's get this started now

I ain't gonna lie to you, I remember layin eyes on you
All I thought about was livin life beside you, Boo
All I want to do is be the perfect guy to you
Tell you the truth, it's like (Candy) cause I'm feelin like its callin me
You're tryin ta hold on, but fallin
Seem quite far ta me
I stay strong but it's hard to be
Cause somethin bringin out the dog in me
(It's like Candy) when I'm keepin my zone
Chat on the phone, I lower my tone
Steady plottin on takin ya home
Gettin all inside of your dome, makin you moan
You shoulda known (It's like Candy)
As I'm seein you here, Mommy I know your peepin my stare
And feelin my glare, brother thinkin bout unrollin the bear
Strokin your hair, (Touchin me where?) Yeah there


I know the deal, I talked to Mary Jane and she said
 Your ex-boyfriends Mike and Ike are both Lemonheads
 I ain't tryin ta player hate girl
 I know That you go with Bazooka Joe
 Now you know he don't love you like that
 He tryin ta get a Reeses piece of the Kit-Kat
 Really hun, what he need is a jawbreaker
 Cause I'm the one that'll love you baby Now and Later
 Be my Peppermint Paddy with a Hundred wishes
 An I'll be your Hershey daddy with a hundred kisses
 Get the Twins M&M's, they booked us outta flight today
 Me an you can Starburst to the Milky Way 
I don't care what it cost, girl a Hundred Grand
 We could snicker all night at my Jolly Ranch
 Just me and you, or call your friends up too 
Cause I could get my boys Babe Ruth and Charlston Chew 

[Chorus 5x]

Cameo was initially a 13-member group known as the New York City Players; this name was later changed to Cameo to avoid a lawsuit from Ohio Players,[citation needed] another group from that era. Since then, Cameo has recorded several hit records. As of 2009, some of the original members continue to perform together, while two others were hired by the hip hop group Outkast. Their influences include Rick James, Parliament-Funkadelic, contemporary funk bands like the Bar-Kays, Earth, Wind & Fire, Ohio Players, The Isley Brothers etc. and singers like Marvin Gaye, Billy Paul, Prince, Isaac Hayes, Stevie Wonder and Bootsy Collins. more »
