Girl I've got a date 
And I just mean, I can't stay late, whoah-ooo-oo. 
All my life and I've warning you, girl 
And not just once or twice 
Take this from me: 
I'm as free as the birds in the tree-eee 

Girl I've got a date 
And I just mean, I can't stay late, whoah-ooo-oo. 
All my, all my life and I've warning you, girl 
You just can't be my wife 
Take this from me: 
I'm as free as the birds in the tree-eee-eee 

Girl I've got a date 
And I mean just, I can't stay late, whoah-ooo-oo. 
No, I've been warning you, girl 
No, no, no, girl, you just can't be my wife 
Take this from me: 
I'm just as free as the bee-eeeee-eee
