All dressed up you're good to go, checkin' your style from head to toe
Hooked up and natural, you're feelin' beautiful
9 times out of 10 you know, late night club like a video
With the hot stuff, top stuff, we got stuff

What a night so far, pullin' up curb side in your car
What a sight you are, think I know somewhere
We can park after dark

System up with the top down and got the city on lockdown
Drive by in the low ride, hands high when we fly by
System up with the top down and got the city on lockdown
Drive by in the low ride, hands high when we fly by
Fly by, fly by, fly by, fly by

Girl, it's time to let you know, I'm down if you wanna go
We can take it nice and slow, we got until tomorrow
UK style, UK flow, we got you hot like whoa
With the hot stuff, top stuff, we got stuff

What a night so far, pullin' up curb side in your car
What a sight you are, think I know somewhere
We can park after dark

System up with the top down and got the city on lockdown
Drive by in the low ride, hands high when we fly by
System up with the top down and got the city on lockdown
Drive by in the low ride, hands high when we fly by
Fly by, fly by, fly by, fly by

I'll tell you this for a fact, fact, lot of ladies step up on a fat track
Leave ya fella in the corner with his starter cap
Show him how to act, show me love, where you at?

What a night so far, pullin' up curb side in your car
What a sight you are, think I know somewhere
We can park after dark

System up with the top down and got the city on lockdown
Drive by in the low ride, hands high when we fly by
System up with the top down and got the city on lockdown
Drive by in the low ride, hands high when we fly by
Fly by, fly by, fly by, fly by

System up with the top down and got the city on lockdown
Drive by in the low ride, hands high when we fly by
System up with the top down and got the city on lockdown
Drive by in the low ride, hands high when we fly by
Fly by, fly by, fly by, fly by

Fly by, fly by, fly by, fly by
