I was rolling in my car
When I pulled up at the mall
Couldn't find a place to park
Threw my keys to the valet
(handle that for me)
I was only there to hang
Wasn't looking for a thing
I was just about to bounce
And then I saw miss lady
Then I said to myself,

There goes my baby
There goes my destiny
Onliest one for me
There goes my lady
She gon' be the one
We gon' fall in love
We gon' have some babies

She was coming out the shoe store
Pretty little thing
A couple of bags in her hand,
Right in front of Macy's
And then I saw her at the food court,
Sipping lemonade,and conversating
On her cell phone,looking so amazing
And I said to myself

There goes my baby
There goes my destiny
Onliest one for me
There goes my lady
She gon' be the one
We gon' fall in love
We gon' have some babies

She gon' wear my ring
She gon' take my name
Take her to the cookout
Me and her gon' hang
Take her to my mama house
Meet smokey and them
If she need her hair done
I think my cousin can
I'll treat her like a queen
Give her everything
She will be my girl
Till we old and gray,
And I knew it from the moment,
That I saw her lovely, lovely face
