This some grown man shit right here 

I'm trying to man up see what's really good with you 
Gentleman's approach, not bring it hood to you 
Same things that you hear everyday like 
"Hey ma, hey boo, baby what's your name" 
Please pull up a seat, I'm so glad you came 
My mother call me Thomas you can do the same 
Damn its so refreshing when you calling out my name 
Been Pooh for so long it doesn't sound the same 
My occupation rap and I make a little change 
I see you not impressed with what this life brings 
Finished school, got a job, girl do your thing 
It's a lot of independent women wanna be claimed 
Marry into money or marry into fame, or at least give birth to a check 
With all due respect lets two-step in the name of like 
Who says we gotta do the waltz all day and all night, it's like 

If love is not enough 
We don't have to rush 
Come around, I'll slow it down just you 
Lady you should be 
Right here next to me 
Come around, I'll slow it down just for you 

We can go to the movies 
I'll take you to the park and promise to have you home before the lights go out 
Steady asking you questions what your life about 
Oh and me, mine's everything I scribe about 
No doubt this my life and 
Dedicated to this witting sacrificing everything for it 
Wasted time I can't afford 
So if it ain't you/then you know I'm cooped up to the record.. 

I'll scoop you up in me Porshe, sike 
You know I got a Nissan 
That I'm still paying for, still got a lease on 
But it don't matter 'cause that ain't my aim to get you 
I got fame, but you know that just ain't the issue 
Because you're looking like a woman of virtue 
So well-rounded, no wonder your're in my circle 
And normally you probably wouldn't give me the time of day 
'Cause Tay got rhymes, but no he ain't got time to waste 


Sometimes I think I'm from another world (preach) 
When I'm trynna tell a woman just exactly where I stand that (aight) 
I want a girl, when I want a girl 
And when I don't want a girl, I want a girl who understands that 
And that's some hard shit to explain 
To a woman that's in love with you, it's a pitiful thing 
Until I had to figure 
That I don't wanna play around, but I don't wanna settle down 
And that's a man's dilemma, 'cause every man remembers 
How his daddy and his uncles did it 
'Cause more than likely that's the way they're gonna do it 
I know it sound fucked up and most won't admit it 
But yo, I gotta face it 'cause I know I'm living through it 
'Cause when the party stops and niggas get old 
And the chain and the cars and the houses get sold, and that 
Other side of the bed gets cold, you don't wanna be alone 
So girl I'm trynna hold you


Oh baby (Take it slow, take it slow, take it slow, take it slow) 
What you need to do is 
Take it slow with me 
Slow it down a little bit (Take it slow, take it slow, take it slow, take it slow) 
We don't have to rush into anything serious 
(Take it slow, take it slow, take it slow, take it slow) 
No we don't, take it from me (Take it slow, take it slow, take it slow, take it slow) 
My name is Percy and I make miracles if you take it slow with me baby 
(Take it slow, take it slow, take it slow, take it slow)
