Plus I'll tell you what the 80's like
And i know what the ladies like
Need a man that's polite,listens,and takes advice
I could be all three, plus I could lay the pipe
Come wit me, come stay the night
She looked at me laughin' , like boy your game is tight
I'm laughin' back like sho' ya right

Hand creepin' up her left side, I'm ready to do it
Ready to bone, ready for dome

Got drops, got coupes, got trucks, got jeeps, all right
Cuz we gon take a ride tonight
So ma, what's up, let's slide, all right, all right

Told me to acknowledge her quick

Go to the crib she got the Gucci linen'

She looked and said Cam, I know that you be sinning
Naw, I'm a changed man, look at the range man
I got a whole new game plan
Looked and said that's nothing but game Cam
She was right, she was up in the Range man
Droped her off at the L, now I'm flippin' the cell
That's right I had to call up L

Yo L, what up, I hit, what else, plus dome, say word
